Facebook and Email Security tips to stop hackers

Facebook and Email Security tips to stop hackers | Virus Removal | Scoop.it

 

Here are some of the very minimum
things you should do if you want to stop hackers from ruining your life. The
sad thing? You can probably do all of these things perfectly and still get
hacked.

Different passwords

Every single account should have a different password. Never ever have the
same password for an insecure site like Facebook and something important
like your online banking.Complex passwords

If your password is less than ten characters long, a mixture of upper and
lower case letters, numbers and symbols then it is not strong enough. It
must never be a name, birthday or information about someone or something
around you. An example of a strong password is something like
“ca#T_on+M<="" irate="" of=""
mixtures="" paranoid="" ridiculous,=""
now="" are="" passwords="" my=""
All="">Complex usernames

I bet 95% of you have your email address or name as your username? Bad
move rookie. You should make your usernames as complex as your passwords.
Many WordPress blogs are set up with the default username of “admin” so
hackers are already 50% of the way there. Change your usernames to
something complex and unrelated.Updated anti-virus software

You need to have an updated version (or two) of the latest anti-virus and
anti-spyware programs. There are free ones like AVG or paid ones like
Norton. Get one and update it automatically.Latest Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari
versions

Don’t just ignore that update request from your browser, do it right away.
Some of those updates are security ones. In fact, keep up to date as to
which is the most secure browser
and just use that. Hello Chrome?Use Facebook and email securely with the right URL

Go log in to Facebook. Go on, do it. Now, does the URL say “http://” or
“https://”? If it is the former then you are not in a secure session. Go
in to your settings and make sure it always uses https:// and whenever you
log into any website make sure you type the “s” if you are logging in.Don’t use public free Wi-Fi

You know when you go to a cafe and log on to the free network? Well, take
a look at how easy it is for
people to steal your Facebook and email passwords using a simple
Firefox plugin. Its really sad that this type of stuff exists. I just
don’t use Wi-Fi anymore.Don’t send passwords or store important information
online OR offline

Don’t send secure information over the net at all. Especially through chat
or email. If someone has got into your account without you noticing they
might be monitoring what you are doing. If you need to send passwords to
workers, family, etc. then call them on the phone. You should also avoid
saving passwords on your hard drive as that too is really easy to access.Make your security questions tough

You know those security questions like “what is your mother’s maiden
name?” Well, make them complex answers. For example, in one of mine I
selected first pet’s name and then made the answer a complex password. If
you ever get hacked you need this information to re-gain access to the
account. You don’t want a hacker to change this.Back up everything

You should constantly be backing up your hard drive, emails and blog
contents to an external hard drive. If the worst happens
and someone deletes your blog content you can get it back up without too
much trouble. Imagine if you were relying on a website for your income and
it all got deleted?Don’t use your PC Administrator account

Most people use the Administrator account because it gives you freedom to
add programs, etc. But, did you know that by using a non-Administrator account
you can slow down the spread of a virus attack?Monitor your logged on locations

If you go down to the bottom of your Gmail account you will see a little
line of text that says “Last account activity”. This shows you where your
account has been accessed from so if you suspect something is not right
you should keep an eye on this and record unfamiliar IPs.Use a phishing filter

This can help you
identify if anyone is trying to run a phishing scam on you by showing you
what is safe.Don’t click links in emails

As a general rule, most banks and financial institutions don’t send you
emails with links. Don’t ever click any such email you get. If you
genuinely think it is from your bank ring them up instead.Research and read up

Make sure you are up to date with the latest in internet security. You can
create alerts in your news reader or follow blogs that update you on such
concerns.

If I have missed anything out please
leave a comment and let me know. Hopefully we can turn this article in to a
nice resource for people to use in order to prevent these types of hacks and
phishing scams happening to them.

What
to do if you still get hacked

If you still get hacked there are
some important steps that you should take from a business, personal and
security point of view.

Don’t panic

I panicked and it made everything so much worse. In the end it turned out
to be okay. Even if the worse happens and you lose all your money (which
is rare) you can still get back on your feet and fight another day. Most
often the bank can investigate such losses and get your money back anyway.Change everything else

While you are investigating the breach go and change all your other
passwords including the security questions on all your other
accounts. Make sure you are doing this from a safe PC and a secure
network.Email your contacts

Email your contact list and let them know what has happened and that you
are trying to fix it. Apologize for the inconvenience.

I sincerely hope that none of you
have to ever go through this. While its not the worst thing that can go wrong,
it sure isn’t fun.

Has
this happened to you?

Is there anyone out there who has
had something similar happen? What did you do? Please leave a comment and
let me know if you have any other tips, ideas or stories that might help
someone out there avoid the same fate.

Knowing Trojan

 

A Trojan is a
malicious program

misguided as some very important

application. Trojans comes on the

backs of
other programs and are

installed on
a system without the

User’s
knowledge. Trojans are

malicious
pieces of code used to

install
hacking software on a target

system and
aid the Hacker in gaining

and retaining
access to that system.

Trojans and
their counterparts are

important pieces of the Hacker’s

Trojans is a
program that appears to

perform a
desirable and necessary

function but
that, because of hidden

and
unauthorized code, performs

functions
unknown and unwanted by

the user.
These downloads are fake

programs
which seems to be a

legitimate
application, it may be a

software like
monitoring program,

system virus
scanners, registry

cleaners,
computer system

optimizers,
or they may be

applications
like songs, pictures • You just need to execute that

software or
application, you will find

the
application running or you might

get an error,
but once executed the

Trojan will
install itself in the system

automatically.

• Once
installed on a system, the

program then
has system-level access

on the target
system, where it can be

destructive
and insidious. They can

cause data
theft and loss, and system

crashes or
slowdowns; they can also

be used as
launching points for other

attacks Many
Trojans are used to manipulate files on the victim computer, manage

processes,
remotely run commands, intercept keystrokes, watch screen

images, and
restart or shut down infected hosts. Different
Types of Trojans

1.
Remote Administration Trojans: There are Remote Access Trojans

which
are used to control the Victim’s computer remotely.

2.
Data Stealing Trojans: Then there are Data Sending Trojans which

compromised
the data in the Victim’s computer, then find the data on

the
computer and send it to the attacker automatically.

3.
Security Disabler Trojan: There are Security software disablers Trojans

which
are used to stop antivirus software running in the Victim’s

computer.

In
most of the cases the Trojan comes as a Remote Administration Tools

which
turns the Victim’s computer into a server which can controlled

remotely.
Once the Remote Access Trojan is installed in the system, the

attacker can connect to that computer and can
control it.

How to prevent

 

You
can avoid registry problems by following a few basic guidelines. The following
is not a complete list of preventive measures, but will help you avoid a
majority of registry-related problems.

• Shut down
your Windows PC with the standard [start] -> shut down procedure. Interrupting
this procedure by a “forced shutdown” may corrupt the registry because Windows
frequently writes to the registry at this time. A forced shutdown may result in
the addition of a partially written file to the registry. The next time you
turn on your computer, you may see signs of corruption. Laptop/notebook users
should take heed when the battery is low and shut down immediately. The
shutdown procedure often requires a lot of hard disk access and, therefore,
power. Some laptops immediately cut power in the event of extremely low battery
power.

• Uninstall unwanted
software or hardware with the vendor’s uninstall program. If an uninstaller
did not come with your software, you may also use the standard Windows
uninstaller, which is located in System -> Add/Remove Programs. Make sure
you allow the Windows uninstaller to complete.

• Do not
interrupt software installation procedures or upgrade procedures by forcing the
system to shut down. On rare occasions when the system hangs or freezes it
is necessary to hold down the power button until the system completely shuts
down. However, performing a forced-shutdown
after normal operation is not recommended, and doing so during an installation
or upgrade is asking for trouble.

• Do not
install drivers on top of drivers. If you are installing new drivers for a
particular piece of hardware (a video card, for example), make sure to use an
approved driver upgrade from the vendor. For example, installing non-standard
monitor drivers alongside existing video card drivers from another vendor might
cause problems.

• If you
absolutely must manually install software from another vendor to work in
conjunction with existing hardware, ensure that you completely remove the old
drivers before installing anything new. For example, if you would like to
update drivers to support your new widescreen monitor, it is a good idea to
remove the current driver (thereby setting the driver to “unknown monitor”)
before installing the new ones.


Back up your registry occasionally, even during normal operating conditions,
by using the methods described in the “How to fix
registry problems” section.

If you frequently
install and uninstall programs to try them out, it is a good idea to purchase a
registry cleaning application and run it on a regular basis. If you are the
organized type who regularly makes to-do lists for computer maintenance, you
can put this task on the same schedule as the defragmentation process or a
routine spyware check, for example. You may even notice that regular registry
cleaning nets a significant increase in the speed and responsiveness of your
computer
