Protect yourself from hackers and unwanted users

Posted on

If there is one thing, I've learned about the internet and its predators you have to protect yourself. Every day the system or programs are hacked as well as an attached account. It's a Shame that someone there seems not to see anything better doing then crack the system or junk account.

Setting your access to an administrator helps prevent unwanted users. We see it happen every day in news and newspapers; identity theft is high. Hackers have easy access to credit card numbers and other information. It's very easy for hackers to obtain a credit card number, and user's identity and password.

Some sites are look-alike other sites, and users often use the illusion of the website. You enter your id and password, it will say incorrectly. Then enter another ID and password and repeat the same. Why? They are hacking sites that are id/password search sites. Yahoo is one of the most hacking and insecure sites. When you realize, what technology can do for you, you will also realize what technology can do you.

Protecting your computer against hackers and viruses, and keeping your personal information private should be of a top priority and importance. Remember, it is best to run the firewall and antivirus software first. Always log out when your computer is not in use. Hackers connect to your system via the Internet. Someone says online shopping with your credit card is safe. I said using PayPal or something like that is safer. There are prepaid credit cards that you should buy, as well as for online purchases. This practice ensures that your personal account is secure.

Just as it is so easy to make your website, so it is also very easy to make a duplicate site or any site and copy and paste the BBB button as well as any other that makes your site look legitimate. This seems to happen more often, even as we are discussing. People are ordering for things thinking they are legitimate ordering sites to find out and the end that, they received nothing. Choose the best anti-virus, spyware, adware, potentially unwanted applications and hackers, so you no longer need to manage multiple products to block different threats is an important process that should be very seriously.

Regardless of whatever means you are connected to the Internet either via a dial-up connection, or if you frequently connect via DSL, cable, and satellite or network, your personal data is now at risk than ever before. As technology changes, the ability to improve hacker skills also increases. As new plans are make to stop hackers, new hacker programs are being developed. They are needs to be serious about Internet security

The Scary Thing: hackers seem to be targeting smaller sites as well. They are needs to take all necessary measure to prevent yourself from becoming a victim to this unruly behavior; it is better saved than sorry.
