By which way to attack? This is a good question.
The easiest way for them to steal your money and accounts is to plant Trojan into your computer. They will bind Trojan with other software or applications, making a website for downloading. Yes, exactly. There are quite a lot software download sites which have software with Trojan. Here I recommend you to download software through famous download sites, like download.com, majorgeeks, softpedia, etc.
So now that you know they use Trojan to do something bad, then you will know that Windows 8 firewall is useless to protect you from Trojan. What you need is an anti-virus software.
