Give Up Robot Hacked

A mask attack is a word generator with a per-position configureable charset. It will try all combinations from a given keyspace just like in Brute force attack, but it is more specific.

The advertisements seen are based on monitoring of browser habits. Most adware is safe to use, but some can serve as spyware, gathering information about you from your hard drive, the websites you visit, or even your keystrokes. Certain types of adware have the capability to capture or transmit personal information.

Multipartite Viruses. A multipartite virus is a computer virus that infects multiple different target platforms, and remains recursively infective in each target. It attempts to attack both the boot sector and the executable, or programs, files at the same time. When the virus attaches to the boot sector, it will in turn affect the system’s files, and when the virus attaches to the files, it will in turn infect the boot sector.
Some forms of ransomware may also encrypt files on the system’s hard drive, while others may simply lock the system and display messages to coax the user into paying.Once the connection is made to a IRC server and a hidden channel a k a Command and Control channel a k a C&C, the computers waits for their master a k a herder, often the same person who infected the computers in the first place. Usually the herder is waiting in C&C and looking as more and more infected computers a k a zombies (see Zombie) join.

Often the herder goes before an attack back and forth between deep-/ dark web chat channels and in the dark web hidden C&C channel to orchestre the attack. Zombies hover on C&C until their herder gives them a order, for example ”ddos 194.318.15.1 (fictitious IP)” (see DDoS). Sudden all zombies start attack the given IP address. (see IP address), till the IP address goes down. There are ways to prevent DDoS in the same way as for example spamming, but all the ways are not for all users.If the Password is e.g. ”Petra2002”, then the password length is 9 digit. This mean we have to iterate through 62^9 (13.537.086.546.263.552) combinations, if we are in a english speaking country. 58^6 or 78^6 if we are in a nordic country.

Exploits take advantage of weaknesses or “vulnerabilities” in common software. It can be a bug, glitch, or design flaw in software in order to cause unintended or unanticipated behavior on computer software. Exploits you can find in e.g. Java and Adobe Flash.
Brute-force often follows a Dictionary attack, if the Dictionary attack has failed. Many hackers custom made their dictionaries. Many hackers program their own brute-force algorithm.

It is very uncommon to see an upper-case letter only in the second or the third position. With mask attack you can reduce the keyspace on a 62^9 to 522626262610101010 combinations. With the same cracking rate of 100M/s, this requires just 40 minutes to complete. Voila.
A vulnerability in the design software and/or hardware that allows the circumvention of security measures. All Windows owners are familiar with the patching-tuesday, the patch-day. A day once a week when holes in Windows are patched. There are also some ports’ that often are used by hackers and can been seen as holes (see Exploit).A trojan that allows a remote user to execute commands and tasks on your computer without your permission. These types of programs are typically used to launch attacks on other computers, distribute copyrighted software or media, or hack other computers through your computer. It is an urban myth that your computer can not be used by cyber criminals if you use a router with password. Unfortunately we have cases were computer owners have been convicted, only on the base that their computer was used in cyber crime. It would be the same as you was convicted after someone took your car without asking and used it in crime activity.You can also plant a keylogger in the keyboard. A better way then few of us have as routine to check our hardware. And even if we did, few of us can see if there is a keylogger in our hardware.A piece of code designed to damage a system and the data it contains, gather sensitive information, gain unauthorized access, or to prevent the system from being used in its normal manner.

Also known as URL hijacking, it relies on mistakes such as typographical errors made by Internet users when inputting a website address into a browser. If the user accidentally enters the incorrect website address, they are lead to an alternative website that usually is designed for malicious purposes.Macro Viruses. A macro virus is a computer virus that ”infects” a Microsoft Word or similar application and causes a sequence of actions to be performed automatically when the application is started or something else triggers it. Macro viruses tend to be surprising but relatively harmless.A macro virus is often spread as an e-mail virus. Well-known examples are e g Concept Virus and Melissa Worm.Also countries use DDoS toward other countries and sometimes toward their own citizens. E.g. 2011 UK’s GCHQ JTRIG targeted Anon ops’ communication infrastructure.Moreover, a bot can also function as a packet sniffer to find and intercept sensitive data passing through an infected machine. Typical data that these bots look out for are usernames and passwords which the botnet commander can use for his personal gain. Data about a competitor botnet installed in the same unit is also mined so the botnet commander can hijack this other botnet.

Malicious software created to restrict your access to your computer system. The idea is to infect your compuyter and demand a ransom paid to the creator of the malicious software for the restriction to be removed. Until you pay, the creator holds your PC or files for ransom.Downloader is a trojan (see Trojan). Downloaders can download and install new versions of malicious programs onto your computer e g trojans and adware.People who supply stolen data but do not necessarily use it to commit fraud. The information obtained by harvesters is sold to criminal networks that trade the information in Internet back alleys.A botnet can consist of a network of 10.000 – 100.000 computers a k a bots. But. For example Storm had 200.000+ active bots in a 24 h period. The largest botnet has been thirty (30) million computers large.

Any Internet service can be a target by botnets. This can be done through flooding the website with recursive HTTP or bulletin-board search queries. This mode of attack in which higher level protocols are utilized to increase the effects of an attack is also termed as spidering.This is one of the simplies network attacks.
Encryption is a security method of coding or scrambling data so that it can be decoded or read only by authorized users. This is commonly used to secure websites, online purchases, and other transactions.Process of adding geographical identification data to various types of media, such as a photograph or video taken with your camera or mobile device. This data usually consists of latitude and longitude coordinates, and they can also contain altitude, bearing, distance, and place names. A skilled hacker can change or erase geotagging.

Doxing is one of favorite choices of left-wing extremists such as trade union members and supporters, and right-wing extremists. These goons a k a trolls seem often to be low life wannabee hackers that thinks they are hackers just because they use VPN and belives they are safe from backtracking.
A pro seem to put his or her energy on creative things such as helping democratic movements such as the Arab Spring or counteract terrorists (see OpISIS), and tracking down undemocratic forces. Forces who want to pull the Internet plug and shut down the Free world.Back doors are used to communicate, give orders to the hacked system or/and drain the system out of information (passwords, logs, business secrets, geo positions, the targets habits etc.) and/or use the hacked system to attack new systems. The new attack can be random or remoted by geo position to specific targets. There are various types of malicious bots that have already infected and are continuing to infect the internet. Some bots have their own spreaders – the script that lets them infect other computers (this is the reason why some people dub botnets as computer viruses) – while some smaller types of bots do not have such capabilities. The original hackers, the hacker generation 1, was a group tech students at MIT, USA, and the year was 1958. This was years before the pre-Internet in late 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. The hacker generation 2 and 3 was active in this period. Among them my brother.Process in which a computer is used to automatically call a list of telephone numbers, usually dialing every number in a local area code to search for computers and fax machines that can successfully make a connection with the computer. When each call is made, the program makes a list of which numbers made a successful connection with a computer and a fax machine. That list can be later used by hackers for various reasons, including hacking a wireless access point with an unprotected login or an easily cracked password to gain access to a network.

You are exposed to the kit through e.g. visiting a compromised website. This often without knowing it. The compromised website contacts / redirect you to a website / server with an exploit kit. The website / server with the kit analyze your PC and localize what your PC are vulnerable to. After that the website with the kit contact your PC in different ways with different exploits. Depending what the cybercriminal want to do with you and your PC.
The last 25 years seem to show that also respected hackers can end up in bad standing and been cast out from the scene, not to mention the less respected hackers.Spoof means to hoax, trick, or deceive. Spoofing can take many forms on the Internet, like faking the email address of another user. You use e.g. spoofing in ARP-poisoning.

The act of using social engineering techniques similar to phishing but via text messaging. The name is derived from ”SMS (Short Message Service) phishing.” SMS is the technology used for text messages on mobile phones. SMiShing uses text messages to try and get you to divulge your personal information. The text message may link to a website or a phone number that connects to automated voice response system.
This is a difference between e.g. Stuxnet which targeted precise targets and e.g. ”Stefan Löfven trojans” which will target every vessel and in the end the whole high sea.The practice of gaining unauthorized access to a system by exploiting an authorized user’s legitimate connection without their explicit permission or knowledge.

A small electronic card, approximately the size of a postage stamp that is placed underneath a mobile phone’s battery. The SIM card stores data such as user identity, location phone number, network authorization data, personal security keys, contact lists, and stored text messages.Ezula a k a eZula is a form of adware installed as part of a browser helper object. Without the user’s permission, eZula communicates with a remote server and displays context-based advertisements to the individual.

UrXBot, SDBot, UrBot and RBot: Like the previous type of bot, these bots are published under GPL, but unlike the above mentioned bots these bots are less abstract in design and written in rudimentary C compiler language. Although its implementation is less varied and its design less sohisticated, these type of bots are well known and widely used in the internet.
Hackers who gain unauthorized access into a computer system or network with malicious intent. They may use computers to attack systems for profit, for fun, for political motivations, or as part of a social cause. Such penetration often involves modification and/or destruction of data, as well as distribution of computer viruses, Internet worms, and delivery of spam through the use of botnets.

Bullying that takes place in cyberspace. This includes the Internet and mobile phone communication. It may involve harassing, threatening, embarrassing, or humiliating someone online.Cyberbullying has become a huge problem in western democraties. It is used by all ages and backgrounds. It has nothing to do with freedom of speech.
Dropper is a trojan. These programs are used by hackers in order to install trojans and / or viruses or to prevent the detection of malicious programs. Not all antivirus programs are capable of scanning all of the components inside this type of trojan. This is an executable file, created specifically to introduce a virus, worm, or trojan on a computer system.

Software designed to enable a user or administrator to recover lost or forgotten passwords from accounts or data files. In the hands of an attacker, these tools offer access to confidential information and are a security and privacy threat.
A program that when run, has the ability to self-replicate by infecting other programs and files on your computer. These programs can have many effects ranging from wiping your hard drive, displaying a joke in a small box, or doing nothing at all except to replicate itself. These types of infections tend to be localized to your computer and not have the ability to spread to another computer on their own. The word virus has incorrectly become a general term that encompasses trojans, worms, and viruses. A botnet can works in many ways. One way is connecting it to an IRC server and channel. Large botnet as Storm do not use IRC. Then the master behind the botnet would need a server on anabolics to manage it. The master behind Storm would probably not even want to connect via IRC. Instead botnet as Storm use peer-to-peer a k a P2P. It is safer for the master. P2P is as a HTTP botnet harder to detect. The weakness for complex botnet as Storm is same time their strength – encryption. It is safer for the master, but it leaves patterns. In the same way as for example TOR does in countries as e.g. Sweden. Patterns stand out in fuzzy information / data. Patterns you can rewind and track down. But a IRC server can serve for example botnet as Rbot (i.e. malware). This is one way to combat encryption. The attacker sits between the target and the target hosts. Both target and the host believes they are communicating with each other, but they are communicating with the attacker. This means when target is opening an encrypted communication with the host through an asymmetric communication, the attacker gets the secret key. After this the attacker open a communication with the host and gets the secret key from the host. The attacker decrypt the packets with the first key and re-encrypts them with the second key. The hacker use two main tools, one ARP-tool to redirect the traffic and one SSH-MitM tool. You can also MitM in other situations. Malicious software such as viruses, Trojan horses, spyware, and other programs used to commit crimes on the Internet including identity theft and fraud. Forensic science is the application of science to criminal and civil laws. Forensic scientists collect, preserve, and analyse scientific evidence during the course of an investigation. While some forensic scientists travel to the scene to collect the evidence themselves, others occupy a purely laboratory role, performing analysis on objects brought to them by other individuals. Digital forensics analysis is usually seen as a specialised domain of information and communication technologies (ICT) that is employed when a serious crime involving ICT is committed.

Bots can also be used as agents for mass identity theft. It does this through phishing or pretending to be a legitimate company in order to convince the user to submit personal information and passwords. A link in these phishing mails can also lead to fake PayPal, eBay or other websites to trick the user into typing in the username and password.
An encryption software within the victims’ units can deter most bots from harvesting any real information. Unfortunately, some bots have adapted to this by installing a keylogger program in the infected machines. With a keylogger program, the bot owner can use a filtering program to gather only the key sequence typed before or after interesting keywords like PayPal or Yahoo mail. This is one of the reasons behind the massive PayPal accounts theft for the past several years.Rootkits are the hardest type of invasive software to detect and nearly impossible to remove. As eluded to in the name, they dig into the root of a hard drive. They are designed to steal passwords and identifying information.

Rogue security software is a type of program that pretends to detect and remove malware for a fee. Rogues claim to scan for malware and then regularly show you fake detections and warnings. They tell you that you need to pay to register the software or remove the fake threats from your PC. Rogues try to scare you into paying a fee, in the hope that the rogue will clean your PC. They need to convince you to pay a fee to be successful. They usually target you with a lot of deceptive messages coming from their fake software, websites and messages.
This have been a problem since at least 15 years. First the sniffers was used against businessmen for example on airports. The attacker could sit in a car on a parkingspot outside the airport. The attacker sniffed the passwords and after that took the business secrets from the businessman. Too many was and are spending their time on Internet while waiting on their plane.Today also hackers use this method, but outside airports. A fourth way, is something I learned in school in 90’s, but it still works. Sniffing with laser. You need a specifik equipment and software, but when you have it, you can read keystrokes by reading the window glass. A botnet can also be used to take advantage of an infected computer’s TCP/IP’s SOCKS proxy protocol for networking appications. After compromising a computer, the botnet commander can use the infected unit (a zombie) in conjunction with other zombies in his botnet (robot network) to harvest email addresses or to send massive amounts of spam or phishing mails.A type of fraud or theft that occurs when an ATM (Bankomat in Swedish) is compromised with a skimming device. A card reader that can be disguised to look like a part of the machine. The card reader collects victims’ account information and a spy camera collects the personal identification numbers (PIN).The ”car
go” code in a virus rather than the portions used to avoid detection or replicate. The payload code can display text or graphics on the screen, or it may corrupt or erase data. Not all viruses contain a deliberate payload. However, these codes affect CPU usage, hard disk space, and the time it takes to clean viruses. Payload can also refer to the data or packets sent during an attack.

A method used to direct someone or something to a different place than was intended. Cybercriminals can use these to route a legitimate website’s traffic to a counterfeit website.

The use of direct observation techniques, such as looking over someone’s shoulder, to get information. A criminal can get access to your personal identification number (PIN) or password by watching over your shoulder as you use an automated teller machine (ATM) or type on your computer.
Stealth Viruses. These viruses are stealthy in nature means it uses various methods for hiding themselves to avoid detection. They sometimes remove themselves from the memory temporarily to avoid detection by antivirus. They are somewhat difficult to detect. When an antivirus program tries to detect the virus, the stealth virus feeds the antivirus program a clean image of the file or boot sector.An IP address is a unique numerical label assigned to a device, such as a computer or other device on a network, including the Internet. IP addresses allow computers, routers, printers, and other devices to identify one another to communicate. Today we are running out of IP, but there are solutions.

A person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog, with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, often for their own amusement. Lulzy messages. Not so lulzy to the victim.

GT-Bots and mIRC based bots: These bots have many versions in the internet mainly because mIRC is one of the most used IRC client for windows. GT stands for global threat and is the common name for bots scripted using mIRC. GT-bots make use of the mIRC chat client to launch a set of binaries (mainly DLLs) and scripts; their scripts often have the file extensions .mrc.
The sniffer can be both hard- and software. The poor man use mainly software. Mainly organized crime and gouverment can also use hardware. The hardware is installed in the main line to the target and read all traffic to and from the target. Algorithms sort the information out.Note. There are many legitimate programs that are given for free which display ads in their programs in order to generate revenue. As long as this information is provided up front then they are generally not considered malware.

A broad term to describe information that has been translated into a form that is more convenient to move or process. Data can be physical and/or virtual.
A some years back we have Supercomputers. In the middle between high end PC and Supercomputers you have for example Sparc M7 based computers. The Sparc M7 processor outperforms an x86 E5 v3 chip by up to 10.8x on analytics queries, but when it comes to brute-force couple of Titan X in an i-7 combo are in i r l de facto faster.To do this a black hat can e.g. have two files. One shell as the attachment and a RAT. He puts the RAT inside the attachment. After having married the RAT with the attachment he can put as option auto load and rename the whole attachment as e.g. something that sems to be legitmate as e.g. an important update from a known AV or OS company. After that he propably erase the two original files. Then a RAT is written in e.g. C/C++ the targets AV will not pay attention when the target downloads the ”update”. The RAT is thanks to C/C++ too small and are hiding inside a ”legimate” attachment. After auto load the RAT is inside the system and put itself inside root as e.g. exe files. After this the black hat can remote controll the system, copy the system, infect the system with new files (docx, pdf, exe etc), shut down the system, erase the system, turn the GPS on, browse through the system, spy on the target through the mic and cam, listen to the target, record videos of the target and much more.

Note. Less can be more. A password with 78^4 possible passwords, such as ”2gY¤” takes 0,000084 minutes (approx 0,01 seconds) to crack. In other words a 78^4 is not automatically safer than a 58^4 password.

Keylogger is a Software and/or hardware that tracks or logs the keys struck on a keyboard, typically in a covert manner, so that the person using the keyboard is unaware that their actions are being monitored. This is usually done with malicious intent to collect information including instant messages, email text, email addresses, passwords, credit card and account numbers, addresses, and other private data. A program that has been designed to appear innocent, but has been intentionally designed to cause some malicious activity or to provide a backdoor to your system. Since 50’s a hacker is basic a person who do not accept that something is in a specific way. A hacker is a critical thinking person. He or she ask him- or herself- why is something in a specific way and what happens if I change the way? If they do not know right away how to change the way, they seek and learn themself, the tools needed to change the way. In the begining this critical thinking lead to lot of pranks.

Data can be in the form of text documents, images, audio files, software programs, and many more forms. Data can be processed on a computer or a mobile device, such as a mobile phone or tablet.

Spam is an unwanted electronic message, most commonly unsolicited bulk email. Typically, spam is sent to multiple recipients who did not ask to receive it. Types include email spam, instant messaging spam, web search-engine spam, spam in blogs, and mobile phone-messaging spam. Spam includes legitimate advertisements, misleading advertisements, and phishing messages designed to trick recipients into giving up personal and financial information. Email messages are not considered spam if a user has signed up to receive them.
Also known as ”ethical hackers” a k a EH. White hat hackers are computer security experts who specialize in penetration testing and other testing methodologies to ensure that a company’s information systems are secure. These security experts may utilize a variety of methods to carry out their tests, including social engineering tactics, use of hacking tools, and attempts to evade security to gain entry into secured areas.When an attacker uses multiple transparent or opaque layers to trick an user into clicking on a button or link on another page, when they were intending to click on the the top Then I don’t see Anonymous (Anon) as whole, as a threat to western democracy and the Free world, I will not go deeper into Anon as a cyber threath. As a Legal counselor I believe in individual responsibility and not in collective punishment. I also believe in western democracy and freedom of speech. A program that is automatically downloaded to your computer without your consent or even your knowledge. It can install malware or potentially unwanted programs merely by your viewing an email or website.A way that users of mobile devices (mobile phones, tablet PCs, and other devices running the Android operating system) hack their devices to gain privileged access to the operating system. This gives the user the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings, run apps that require administrator permissions, or perform operations that otherwise would have not been possible.

An error that occurs when antivirus software (AV) wrongly claims that a virus is infecting a clean file. False positives usually occur when the string chosen for a given virus signature is also present in another program.
Skilled hackers who sometimes act legally, sometimes in good will and sometimes not. They are a hybrid between white and black hat hackers. They usually do not hack for personal gain or have malicious intentions, but may or may not occasionally commit crimes during the course of their technological exploits.An error that occurs when antivirus software (AV) fails to detect that an infected file is truly infected. False negatives are more serious than false positives, although both are undesirable. False negatives are more common with antivirus software because they may miss a new or a heavily modified virus.

found in Web Applications, ’XSS’ allows the attacker to insert malicous code, There are many types of XSS attacks. This kind of vulnerability allows an ”attacker” to inject some code into the applications affected in order to bypass access to the website or to apply ”phishing” on falls users. This technique is also used for website Hacking.
The computer becomes often a member of a unvolontary botnet by getting infected by malware. This is the traditional way. Methods are many. The malware can be in a fun video you watch, malicious link you hit, an e-mail from your mother you open, a piggyback on a software you load.Persistent: The persistent XSS vulnerabilities are similar to the second type (Non-persistent XSS), because both works on a victim site and tries to hack users informations and the difference is that in websites vulnerables to Persistent XSS the attacker doesn’t need toinvolves providing invalid, unexpected, or random data to the inputs of a computer program. The program is then monitored for exceptions such as crashes, or failing built-in code assertions or for finding potential memory leaks. Fuzzing technique is commonly used to test for security problems in software or computer systems ans also used to discover coding errors and security loopholes in software, operating systemsThe goal itself was not test an organizations security. The goal in those days was Data Mining for the best of science, and by extension for the best of Western democracy. With that said also countries use malware toward other countries and toward their own citizens. In Sweden PM Stefan Löfvens’ government suggested 2015 putting malware in (all) Swedish citizens coumputers and 2016 to censorship the Internet in order to control the fractal chaos and diversity of Internet. Often the ransomware will claim you have done something illegal with your PC, and that you are being fined by a police force or government agency e.g. FBI. These claims are false. It is a scare tactic designed to make you pay the money without telling anyone who might be able to restore your PC. A traditional Brute force attack (see Brute force attack) require a charset that contains all upper-case letters, all lower-case letters and all digits. As we saw above there are A common trick cybercriminals use to make users think that their computer has become infected with malware to get them to purchase a fake application. Often the fake application that the user is tricked into purchasing is actually a malicious program which can disable real antivirus software and wreak havoc on a user’s machine. The most common applying of this kind of vulnerability is in Search engines in website: the attacker writes some arbitrary HTML code in the search textbox and, if the website This malicious program can e.g. disguise as legitimate software. They are called trojans because they are like the mythological wooden Trojan Horse that was used to sneak into the ancient city of Troy. Trojans are the most common type of malware. One key factor that distinguishes a Trojan from viruses and worms is that Trojans don’t replicate. Unlike viruses, trojans can’t spread on their own – they rely on you to run them on your PC by mistake, or visit a hacked or malicious webpage. Users are typically tricked into loading and executing it on their systems.

The act of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. It relies on human interactions, such as trying to gain the confidence of someone through trickery or deception for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or computer system access. This can take many forms, both online and offline.
If your security software detects an exploit in e.g. your Javacache, it’s likely that an attempt to compromise your PC has been made. You have been pwn. IM is a trojan. IM programs steal your logins and passwords for instant messaging programs, such as ICQ, MSN Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Pager, Skype among others. A single computer (maybe yours without you knowing it) in a botnet can automatically send thousands of spam messages per day. The most common spam messages come from zombie computers.This type of virus can re-infect a system over and over again if all parts of the virus are not eradicated. Ghostball was the first multipartite virus, discovered by Fridrik Skulason in October 1989. Other examples are e g Invader, Flip among others. Certain t
ypes of encryption, by their mathematical properties, can not be defeated by a brute-force attack. For example an one-time pad cryptography, where every cleartext bit has a corresponding key from a truly random sequence of key bits. Attacking such a system relies not on pure cryptography. It relies upon operators (yours) mistakes. 
A botnet may be small or large depending on the complexity and sophistication of the bots used. A large botnet may be composed of ten thousand individual zombies. A small botnet, on the other hand may be composed of only a thousand drones. Usually, the owners of the zombie computers do not know that their computers and their computers’ resources are being remotely controlled and exploited by an individual or a group of malware runners through Internet Relay Chat (IRC)

provide the crafted url to the users, because the website itself permits to users to insert fixed data into the system: this is the case for example of ”guestbooks”. Usually the users uses
The act of stealing personal information by driving around looking for unsecured wireless connections (networks) using a portable computer or a personal digital assistant (PDA).No one is in the position to say what Anon are or not are. One part of the scene seem to be take the easy sharp pen and play the game by the playing field rules. It seem to mean not to be an individual public medial show-off or play the game with an unsharp broad pen, a pen that leak inc everywhere.

A virus is ”in the wild” (ITW) if it is verified as having caused an infection outside a laboratory situation. Most viruses are in the wild and differ only in prevalence.
Today hacking is a broad term for a person who uses programing skills and technical knowledge to create and modify computer software and hardware by finding weaknesses and exploiting them, including computer programming, administration, and security-related items. A hacker is a wizard. A hacker is a person who enjoys learning the details of programming systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary a k a user a k a luzer. A hacker is someone who programs enthusiastically, or who enjoys programming rather than just theorizing about programming. A hacker is a person capable of appreciating hack value. A hacker is a person who is good at programming quickly. Not everything a hacker produces is a hack. A hacker is an expert at a particular program, or one who frequently does work using it or on it.Information and communications technology (ICT) is often used as an extended synonym for information technology (IT), It is a more extensive term (i.e. more broad in scope) that stresses the role of unified communications and the integration of telecommunications (telephone lines and wireless signals), computers as well as necessary enterprise software, middleware, storage, and audio-visual systems, which enable users to access, store, transmit, and manipulate information.Just like viruses, spyware can be installed on a computer through an email attachment containing malicious software. What is the difference between e.g. spyware and malware? Spyware is malware. The word ”spyware” describes what the code do. The word ”malware” describes what the code is. A form of criminal activity using social engineering techniques through email or instant messaging. Phishers attempt to fraudulently acquire other people’s personal information, such as passwords and credit card details, by masquerading as a trustworthy person or business in an apparently official electronic communication. Typically, phishing emails request that recipients click on the link in the email to verify or update contact details or credit card information. Like spam, phishing emails are sent to a large number of email addresses, with the expectation that someone will act on the information in the email and disclose their personal information. Phishing can also happen via text messaging or phone. At present this attack mostly use on social network websites like Facebook and twitter, Because this attack is used by convinced victim for click on the link and SocialNetwork website might be very useful for attack on victim.

The criminal practice of posing as a legitimate source to obtain information over the telephone system (phishing via phone/ voicemail). It is facilitated by Voice over IP because it can spoof (fake) caller ID to gain access to personal and financial information.
Back door can also be referred to as a trap door. Hackers can built back doors after entering a system through a exploit (see below), a weak spot in the attack surface and after locking the flawn from inside.A generic term used to describe any type of software or code specifically designed to exploit a computer or the data it contains, without consent. Malware includes viruses, Trojan horses, spyware, certain types of adware, most rootkits, and other malicious programs.

”..bring the madness..” This is what the cyber world has become to. Far beyond what the original pioneers of Internet in the late 60’s and 70’s could have forseen. / Petrus Toxy
Also known as zero-hour threats and vulnerabilities, they include threats that take advantage of a security hole before the vulnerability is known. The security hole is usually discovered the same day the computer attack is released. In other words, software developers have zero days to prepare for the security breach and must work as quickly as possible to fix the problem.

Text based introductions. The spine in programs and devices. If a hacker change the code the program or device will act different, for example collect information of you and send it to the hacker
