Tip

Hacking Terminology-Guide for Complete Noobs


Bot - A bot is a program that is ran secretly in the background of a customer’s computer. The bot connects to an IRC channel usually where a Bot Herder(its creator) can use a number of commands to control these computers that are now it’s under control. A zombie computer(a pc under control of a bot herder) can be manipulated in a number of ways. Some functions of a bot include stealing customers passwords, Password Recovery Tool, ddosing a server to cause it to crash, turning on the webcam and being able to watch the zombie computer’s users, visiting a website(to gain money + traffic for a bot herder), clicking ads, making ads appear randomly, destroying itself(the pc), and sending spam to email contacts.

serverNET – A bunch of bot’s connected to a server (usually IRC or web) that can be controlled and manipulated by its owner.

RAT (Remote Administration Tool) – Sort of like a serverNET in regards that you can gain acess to the customers computer and do stuff like look at their files, webcam, etc. Only this malware connects back to you, apposed to aserver.

Crypter – A crypter is used to make well known hacker’s viruses (such as keyloggers and botnets) undetectable by anti-virus software by changing the virus program signatures that anti virus programs have in their databases to make them easier to spread.

Binder – A binder is used to bind a virus(such as a Password Recovery Tool,etc) to another program making it undetechtable and able to fool users into thinking its something else. (IE a customer will click an installPhotoshop.exe and it will install photoshop as well as your virus secretly.)
FUD – Term for fully undetectable virus. (made by either coding your own virus or by crypting and binding an existing virus) Use http://novirusthanks.com (uncheck distribute sample) to check if your virus is undetectable.
Database – Used by most websites to store things such as User names, Passwords, Email, etc of an entire website or community.

SQL Injection
– A way of manipulating a website’s forms as a way of retrieving it’s databases. This can be used to find users and passwords as well as obtaining admin on a website in order to deface it.
XSS (Cross Site Scripting) – a type of computer security vulnerability typically found in web applications which allow code injection by malicious web users into the web pages viewed by other users. An exploited cross-site scripting vulnerability can be used by attackers to bypass access controls such as the same origin policy. Vulnerabilities of this kind have been exploited to craft powerful phishing attacks and browser exploits.

Password Recovery Tool – A Password Recovery Tool is a program, usualy ran secretly in the background that records what users type, then the typed output is usually sent via email or uploaded by thePassword Recovery Tool somewhere to the web in secret. These can be attached to other executables so you never even know you ran them in the first place, once you click it once it often is started at startup from their on.

Cookie Stealing/Spoofing – Used to fool a customer into clicking a link that will steal their cookies to websites which you can then use to have their privileges to various parts of a website or forum.
BruteForcer – Program used to crack passwords by trying every password/password list on various forms.

Hashes - How passwords are usually stored, this is a way of crypting a password so it is not plain text, harder passwords are very hard to crack but simple ones have often been cracked and can be found on online databases. Some common password hashes include MD5 and SHA.

Social Engineering – Tricking a customer into doing something you want them to do by disguising or enticing them into doing what you want.

Phishing - Creating a fake login page to a well known website (IE Facebook) and then fooling a customer into entering their information on the fake login page through social engineering.

My pc is starting alone


Hello,
There are a couple of reasons why your computer could start by itself. The most common is called WOL (Wake on LAN). If you are on a network or have your internet modem connected directly to your network card it is possible to send a magic packet to the port which tells the PC to turn on. This is most often used for servers and other devices to bring them online so resources can be accessed. Some viruses exploit this as well.
The second thing could be a timer in your BIOS which is set to turn the PC on at a set time.
Both possibilities can be checked / disabled by turning your PC on and going into the BIOS. Most computers allow access to the BIOS by pressing the delete key or F1, F2 immediately after turning the computer on. It may even flash quickly on the screen "To enter setup / bios press....???key???". Navigate thru the menus with your arrow keys until you find network adapter or WOL (Wake on LAN) and disable it. Check for a timed power on option as well. If you would like more specific instructions please reply with your PC model and brand, or the motherboard model and brand.
If your network card is not onboard to the motherboard, but instead, a PCI or PCI-E board, you may have to open your PC case and pull out the wire going from the network card to the motherboard to disable WOL.
If you do have your computer connected directly to your internet modem, I recommend you purchase a router to act as a firewall between the internet and your PC. This will also disable WOL from the internet and stop many viruses that could be trying to exploit your PC.
I hope something I wrote here helps you come to the bottom of your issue.
Regards, Chris

I try 2 play a Lifetime downloaded demo game and computer keeps saying, cant run multiple instances of this application, but I am not, that I know of. What does this mean and how do I fix it?


1. try restarting comp
2. if the game is already running the name of it such as "game.exe" will show up in the processes tab of your task manager. kill the process and try to play the game again
3. the game is being confused with another program or critical system process (this can be caused if the game is actually a rather poorly written virus trying to exploit operating system and/or other processes)
4. if you do not find the game process in the list then I will need more information about the game and/or where to get it so I can test it myself.

How to unblock facebook


Due to the overwhelming amount of people trying to circumvent school and business security by asking for this assistance, it is not recommended that anyone answer these questions about unblocking social networking, chat, or private email sites. Strict security prevents these sites from coming up because they are hotbeds for viruses and other exploits and thus pose unnecessary risk to the network.

Emachine running SLOW and Freezes - 1 year old


Here are some suggestions: First of all . Do you have an anti virus installed on your husband's machine ? Viruses can slow the machine and even kill it permanently ( so be careful) . Just install an anti virus and you'll solve the problem . If you are already have an anti virus , then just run a full system scan and watch what will happen and follow the recommended steps that will be given by the anti virus [ There are a lot of anti virus softwares in the market ] but if you suspect that your system is already infected i recommend you to use (Avast professional edition) because it can make a boot scan , that means after you install it , it will ask you if you want to make a boot scan , just agree with it and it will reboot the system and start a boot time scanning , meanwhile you should watch it and give it the right orders if it detected a virus infection . Here is another suggestion : There is a certain software you could install it . This software can help your machine and detect any problem on your husband's computer but viruses . this software is called (TuneUp utilities) . You can download it from here www.tune-up.com . just try it and you'll be satisfied with result . if that didn't help just contact me again and i'll help you as possible as i can .
good luck .
