Did you watch Pirates of the caribbean? I bet you did and more than one time .Pirates are charming ,let alone when impersonated by Jhonny depp and Orlando Bloom.They have always fascinated us.
But, has it ever crossed your mind that you can be a part of it ? You must think it’s a far-fetched dream.It’s not ! thanks to Mr Password Hacker.Well, you might not love the role of a hostage but at least it keeps you close to pirates’ world,the only difference is that Mr Password Hacker is not as bewitching as Orlando Bloom.No one knows what he looks like or knows his real name as he has many like black hat or white hat.It looks like hackers love hats .Well, that can be a good thread leading to them; hat lovers are hackers.When making a research on password hacking ,I found out that hackers call themselves “White Hat” because they hack for defensive purposes.
Hacking is the weapon of employees who had been fired .Since shooting is a crime,the only way they can get revenge on their boss is to hack his password and blackmail him.
Pirates and Hackers have the same mission ,both are determined to destroy a security system ;the former of a vessel,the latter of a computer. And both have destructive weapons.Pirates use cannon,swivel guns while Hackers utilize sophisticated ones including dictionary attack,hybrid attack, and brute force attack.Jack sparrow would be bewildered if he hears that.
Hackers will try every word from the dictionary as a password.This weapon is good as it doesn’t take much time .
It is a mixture of a brute force attack and dictionay attack.The hacker adds a couple of numbers to the end of each dictionary word.
I must say that Hackers are hard working ,some burn the night oil to steal our password while we ‘re sleeping,this might explain why some refer to a hacker as a clever programmer.
You might wonder how you can combat them,well there are some tools ,simple ones but they work.
1-Never stuck your password to your mirror or under your treasure chest.
2-Think of strong password that can never come cross a living soul mind but you.
3-Change your password monthly.
4-Use an Anti-virus program, and it’s advisable to use a reside virus checker that provides a full-time protection to your computer because free web -based programme detects virus unless you are on line and at the manufacture’s web site.
Happy reading 🙂
