You may be wondering how exactly you could get hacked? The first thing to know is that the days where all you had to worry about were pesky Windows viruses are long gone. A lot of hacking nowadays starts with a little social engineering and trickery, before the actual techie stuff starts.

So, with that in mind, I’ll begin my round-up of some of the key flavors of hacking with the activity I almost fell victim to recently: Phishing.

Phishing is maybe the most used technique for hackers to get your password, this based on the cost and creation that’s excessively easy, it consists on create a false application or false message, to get the user write all your information in a site that can copy that immediately, bank account, your email account are easy targets for these kind of programs, Stealers are another kind of hacker, many people using the browser leave his information floating there, it takes nothing for a person with knowledge to get those numbers or letters that keep him away from all your data.

Viruses and Trojans:

Although a traditional antivirus product is still commonly seen as the first line of defense in computer security, “old school” viruses and trojans seem (subjectively) to be falling out of favor somewhat with cyber-criminals. Antivirus software, email software and even operating systems themselves have toughened up against these “traditional” threats in recent years, leading many criminals to move into the more lucrative phishing andothers activities described above.

On the other hand, websites lock your account automatically after 2 or 3 attempts, if you use a really simple password that is not so hard to break it.

This type of cracking is when the hacker is pretending to be you, if you consider password composed of letters, numbers and symbols that are roughly 100 combinations per character a five character password will have 10 billion combinations, it seems like a lot of time but a hacker can break a password like this, in 10 seconds.

And there’s a list of common ways to be more efficient with your passwords;

  • capitalizing the first letter of a word;
  • checking all combinations of upper/lowercase for words;
  • inserting a number randomly in the word;
  • putting numbers on the ends of words;
  • putting numbers on the beginning of words;
  • putting the same pattern at both ends, like *foobar*
