Now more is known about computers, hacking into them can in some cases become a lot easier if someone does not have the correct firewalls and protection. There are now many ways that people can hack into other people’s computers. This can either be by using your wireless internet service to then gain access to your ‘C’ drive, hacking into your password-protected systems and files, or simply sending you an email with a dangerous attachment for you to open, providing them with unauthorised access to your whole computer.

It is for these reasons why you should ensure that you invest in the correct firewalls, virus protection and security-enabled wireless Internet services. If someone is successful in hacking into someone else’s computer, they will be able to access their bank accounts and all personal documents that could include both private and important information about their jobs or contact details.

The key is to outsmart the hacker. Include symbols and numbers in your password as opposed to just using words that can be guessed if the hacker is persistent enough. Making sure that you don’t open any emails that look suspicious and give you false promises is going to ensure that your computer isn’t going to get hacked into. They will have access to you e-mail and possibly computer if you do this.

Being aware of how people hack into other people’s computers is going to ensure that you do not become a victim to whichever method the hacker tries to gain access to your home or work computer. Be ahead of the game with firewalls and extra protection with difficult passwords. Investing time into being vigilant could prevent your life savings and credit cards from being jeopardised unnecessarily.

In the past, to be described as a "hacker" was a compliment. It just meant that you were a really good computer programmer.

However, in recent years, the word has come to be used to describe someone who remotely gains entry to anther person's computer, or to an organisation's computer system, in order to wreak mischief, and possibly for personal gain.

The methods for getting into another person's system are numerous. There are password cracking techniques, for example programs that will simply try every word in the dictionary , that allow a hacker to find out a person's password, and thus start to use their bank account, email account, or whatever.

Another method is to send the intended victim an email with an attachment. If the person downloads the attachment, their computer is then re-programmed to allow access to the hacker, who can then take a look at what is on the computer. Also, a program called a "keylogger" can be downloaded by this method, and then the hacker will know what keys of the keyboard the victim is typing.

There are many firewalls available that will protect your computer from this sort of attack.

The firewalls are only a temperary fix a skilled professional hacker would quite easly bulldoze through them the truth is there is no way to stop a determent hacker they will just stay up all night making a new program and try again the next day u can just hope u dont ever catch urself downrange from a pro although they are of a rare breed and main stick with hard systems and not home desktop pc's

People hacking is very easy to do, to avoid this been happening to you, 1- do not open mail (msn hotmail facebook ect) that you don't know, (as soon you open the message or mail, it act like a open do)or to your computer or a virus) 2- don't download nothing that you don't know (check before DL) and most importantly 3 - DO not sign up for somthing you don't know. P.s you can not track or catch a pofessional hacker, he will have signals on signals to countrys, I will take you years on years to get the person, trust me. Erm oi another not every firewall is same, iv done a test and iv cracked somones hacker/virus system worth 130pounds - 210 dollors, don't worry I contact the person to change his system (no police was involved he was thanked)

I got hacked simply because someone on my friends list on xbox live sent me a message saying download this xbox-gamertag modder which is what I was after... So I downloaded it and then when I opened it nothing game up.. However I was on face book and signed in to msn and then they both signed out so I thought this is weird so I join this persons party and when I was in there I heard them talking about them controlling my computer =O... So I knew it was them I downloaded Kaspersky Anti virus did a full scan.. Took several hours but got there... And then I reprted the issue to the hotmail account support and sent them every detail I could on a different computer and now I'm just hoping to get my account back =/

Any of you who claim to know the first thing about cracking anything obviously know nothing about the workings of a computer. Those here who claim to have the knowledge and skills to breach a system need to go back to their barbie dolls. 

No one who can do so would be boasting about it on such a blog, as it is a felonious crime. And a note to those who believe they have awesome hacking skills: Running simple commands through the CMD or downloading and using a program of which you do not understand the workings of only makes you a regular computer user with tainted ambitions.

Why don't one of you explain to me the TCP/IP stack and how you manipulate it to launch an attack? When you answer this question, you might be taken more seriously than a royal fool.

Hi,

For Exhibition I'm learning about Enternet I like this because I whant
to learn abous Enternet In Enternet there is Yahoo , Google , Hotmail and
incredimail.

The decline in CAPTCHA efficacy has been an ongoing story in 2008, as
hackers and malware authors have steadily found ways to chip away at the
protection these security practices were once thought to offer. Now, new
findings indicate that both Gmail and Windows Live Hotmail have been
compromised again, this time via a more-streamlined attack process. With
two of the largest webmail providers once again vulnerable, CAPTCHAs
clearly aren't meeting the security needs of either company, and it may be
time to reevaluate the use of them altogether.

No it is very hard to hack its all about getting the ip adress to hack ur comp putting up the firewall makes it way harder but not impossible it all depends on the skill of the hacker the problem is like ne1 else hackers lik a challange so it may inspire them to try again or make a new program to hack ur comp the only sure as hell way is to fully disconect from the internet when not using it aka turn off ur broadband modem and also stay away from sites that u dont no about

I think they want to track you down and make you scared! But remember if you ever feel scared call 911 or your local seven digit police!
