As automation and security experts, we’re here about to lay down some serious wisdom about those sneaky little QR codes you find in public places.
Let’s be real here – you got here by scanning a random QR code we placed somewhere. And sure, sometimes they lead to sweet discounts or freebies. But other times? Well, let’s just say that scanning those codes is about as safe as jumping into a pool of piranhas with a raw steak strapped to your leg.
You see, those QR codes could be harboring all sorts of nasty cyber threats – viruses, malware, and other nefarious attacks that could turn your device into a smoldering pile of ones and zeroes. And trust me, that’s not a pretty sight.
So, the next time you’re out and about and come across a QR code, think twice before you start scanning willy-nilly like a cowboy on the range. Instead, stick to the codes you know and trust. And if you’re feeling really daring, just remember – you could always take your chances with those piranhas.
