Tip

Prevent Phishing Attacks


• Did you ever receive an email that appeared to be from your bank? • Did you click a link that sent you to what looked like your bank's website?• Did you enter your username and password?• When you clicked submit, did the site turn out to be bogus? If you said yes to any of these questions then you may have been ‘phished’. Phishing is a hacker term that essentially means trolling for personal or financial information. Phishing is also a crime! Millions of people online, 3.3 million in fact, fall victim to ‘social engineering’ such as clicking on tainted links in emails, receiving legitimate looking emails that direct you to poisoned sites to steal passwords and usernames, or any number of malicious ploys to get you to give up your personal information. Simply put, the perpetrators of these scams intend on selling your information or using it in some manner for personal gain. However, there are ways to stop them before they get you. Phishing (pronounced ‘fishing’), is the act of misleading people into turning over sensitive information under false pretenses. ‘Spoofing’ or ‘brand spoofing’ is when a hacker copies or crafts web pages and emails from the spoofed sites web site content. These emails and web pages are the used as bait. Once the victim takes the bait, the hacker proceeds to bleed victims financially from the information they glean. In 2007, victims of phishing lost an average of $886 per person. That’s $3.2 billion (USD). The number of people who actually got their money back is astoundingly lower. Only 1.6 million recovered money lost to phishing scams, that’s just over half of last years victims. You’ll be interested to know two things about phishing. If you know what to look for you know what to ignore. If your email provider is worth their salt, and you have a good mail client, these lures never see the light of day.

Instruction On How To Prevent Phishing Atacks :

    Steps to Fight Phishing
  1. Step 1 Gmail is at the top of the line when it comes to filtering out spam. Google offers infinitely better spam protection than AOL or Yahoo. What’s more, Google’s email service, Gmail, is free.
  2. Step 2 Abandon outdated mail clients. Upgrade to Lotus Notes, Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird. I know for a fact people still use Outlook Express. If you use it, uninstall it and get something else.
  3. Step 3 Never follow links in an email claiming to be from your bank. Ignore these types of emails. Banking institutions never ask you to verify your online banking username and password, except perhaps during initial sign-up, though this is not a common practice. These links may lead to a website that looks like your bank’s site but is not.
  4. Step 4 The website linked to in the email may ask you to enter your username and password. Do not do this until you have verified you are dealing with your banking institution. Call customer service and ask if this is a common practice. If customer service tells you it is not common practice, notify them of the email you received, as well as the url in the email. Indicators are bad urls, no padlock icon in your browser or other security indicators missing from your usual online banking session experience.
  5. Step 5 The next step in protection is to install a good Anti-Virus and firewall. Some products for you to consider are:• AVG Free • Avast! Anti-Virus • ZoneAlarm • BlackICE PC Protection
  6. Step 6 Adjust you browser settings to tighten up security especially if you use web based email. If you receive an email with a bad link in it, add the link to your 'Restricted Sites'. To do this go to Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Security. On the 'Security' tab go to 'Restricted Sites', move the slider to 'high' and remember to add blocked sites so the computer knows whom to trust. Do the same in your email client and firewall. If you are using IE, the rule of thumb is to uninstall IE and use:• Mozilla Fire Fox• Maxthon Web Browser

In this way , you can prevent phishing attacks .

My best friend said she is blocked from sending me eemail


Without more information re: the problem, it would be unusual for a person to be blocked from sending you email, unless you blocked the person from within your email program.

If she gets the email returned when she sends it, it may be due to a Quota problem on your end (not a blocked problem).

If it is a Quota problem, you will either need to delete emails (to free up some space) or apply to have more disk quota assigned.

You are allocated a set amount of disk space for storage of emails, via most providers. When this quota has been reached, no-one is able to send you a message.

I hope this helps. Regards,

Vanishing text


save your emails and messages of of your C drive. Save to a usb or other media. This applies to Outlook incredimail or anything other than like hotmail, or things like that. Put in your OS disk, go to add other, select the items that you want to install and make sure you include everythiny you need even though its already in your machine. This is like reinstalling the acessories in your machine like it was new. let the software run.
when it reboots .. go to your email and from the file pull down menu, import you emails and messages back into your email software. Be advised that Outlook, not outlook express, will give you a hell of a time getting the info back in. Try to use (as export) microsoft email choice. Good Luck

Someone has hacked into my sons msn and sent abusive msgs to his friends he cant get back in to his site who do i call for asssistance?


Somehow for whatever reason you've forgotten the password, the answer to your secret question and never set up, or no longer have access to the alternate email address associated with the account. Or your account has been hacked and your password, secret answer and alternate email address have all been changed.
I cannot help you.
Contact your email service provider and tell them what it happening. They should have some way of identifying you, after which they should be able to reset your password. This is typically the approach for pay services - they may verify your identity with your credit card number or some other piece of information they collected at the time you signed up.
Unfortunately, this almost never works for free accounts. Why? Because these accounts are free, there's almost no customer support. You get what you pay for.
Let me be even clearer about that:
If:
You're using a free email service such as HotMail, Yahoo, and others
... and you forgot or lost your password
... and you forgot or lost the answer to your secret question
... and you did not set up an alternate email address, or you lost access to the alternate email address
... and customer service is not responding to you
You are out of luck.
I know of no way to recover your account. I cannot help you.
You absolutely can and should try contacting customer service for the email service you are using - they are the only ones who could help you. But my experience is that they rarely do.
Learn from your mistake.
If you lose access to your account and cannot recover it, you'll want to set up a new account. Learn from this.
Choose good passwords that you will remember. It's tough, given the number of accounts and passwords we all need to remember, but the fact is choosing a hard-to-guess password, and changing it regularly are important steps you can take to avoid someone stealing your account.
Don't share your password with anyone. A number of the account hacks I hear about are the result of trusting someone you shouldn't have.
Remember your secret answer. I'm kind of surprised I even have to say this, but when you create an account that asks you for a secret question and answer, don't treat it lightly. It doesn't have to be true ... just make sure it's something you'll remember in a year or two or ten when (not if) you have a problem.
Set up an alternate email address. This is where password reminders would get emailed to. And remember that if you lose access to your alternate email address, you need to change it in any accounts that reference it.
Don't use "remember me" when logging in. At least, don't use it unless you're positive it's safe. If someone else walks up to the computer (be it in an internet cafe, or in your bedroom or office) and "remember me" is selected ... they can now login as you without knowing your password. And then they can change your password and everything else, locking you out of your own account.
And, perhaps most important of all:
Don't use free email accounts for anything important.

Every time I send a email to this one email address it comes back to me and their computer won't except jokes or pictures from mine. How can we fix this?


they have got their email settings so that it will not allow attachments to be opened, this is found in tools if they are using outlook express.

But if the email comes back you have not sent it to the correct address

Can you tell me why it is that I no longer can receive certain of my email contacts? For instance, my son has been sending me email for several years. Suddenly, I no longer receive his email. This is...


The most likely reason is that an anti-spam service/product has blocked them. For example, it could be one of:
  • Your ISP has implemented a spam-blocking service which regards the addresses your son's/friend's emails are coming from as spammers
  • A new version of your anti-virus software has been installed, perhaps as part of an auto-update, and this now includes an anti-spam component which is behaving as above.
  • Your email client program (e.g. Outlook Express, Thunderbird) has been updated, again perhaps automatically, and it has an over-zealous spam filter.
