Brute force

I would say that hackers that use brute force to get past encrypted password would be the main breach. People have to have their defense systems in place to fight against this

Trojans are dangerous in terms of when they override the network's firewall and gain access of the data they need before the DDOS attack is detected.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
