I guess it is a fallacy to think a hacker would only attack home users with run of the mill malware that is detectable by consumer malware solutions. Any middle manager in any company also has a home, and is a 'home user'. But middle managers also has access to their companies dashboards and intranet web stuff. I, as a pretend hacker, will target these middle managers with all the arsenal I can get my hands on, from run of the mill malware, to black market bought attack tools using the latest fileless attacks. Hackers are not only attacking middle management, but regular developers, engineers, and clerks to gain a foot hold into corporations. Then they do horizontal migration to leap onto servers. In today's environment of working from home, companies are scrambling to protect their homebound workforce. And BYOD has evolved into their worst nightmare.
