3 posts in this topic

Do U Think If Your Email Can Not Been Hackable, Then You Are Wrong...
Ur Email-ID Can Be Hack... But Its Can Be Hack Only Fault by User.. Most Of The Peoples Think That Their Has A Software to Hack A Email- ID's But Truth Is Their Is No Software Present For Hacking Ur Mail ID's..

Email Hacking can be possible to many ways like:-

1. Social Engineering
2.Phishing Attacks
3. Cookie Hijacking
4. By Keyloggers

Social Engineering:
This Process is defined as Hack the human mind without any tools...
This has become one of the hottest topics today and it seems to work out most of the times. Social Engineering doesn’t deal with the network security issues, vulnerabilities, exploits, etc. It just deals with simple Psychological tricks that help to get the information we want.

This really works!! But it requires a lot of patience.
We are all talkig about network security and fixing the vulnerabilities in networks.
&But what happens if some internal person of a network accidentally gives out the passwords. After all we are all humans; we are also vulnerable and can be easily exploited and compromised than the computers.
Social Engineering attacks have become most common during the chat sessions.
With the increase in use of Instant Messengers, any anonymous person may have a
chat with another any where in the world. The most crucial part of this attack is to
win the trust of the victim.

Phishing Attack:
The act of sending an e-mail to a user falsely claiming to be an established legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam the user into surroundering private information that will be used for identity theft. The e-mail directs the user to visit a Web site where they are asked to update personal information, such as passwords and credit card, social security, and bank account numbers, that the legitimate organization already has. The Web site, however, is bogus and set up only to steal the users information.

Cookie Hijacking:
In cookie hijacking we can hack email accounts very easily.. This trick is very
dangereous because whenever user change a password then there is no need to
attacker for again hack Email- ID of victim. And it would take you to inbox of victim's yahoo account without asking for any password of victim account.

Keyloggers:
Keylogger is a software program or hardware device that is used to monitor and log
each of the keys a user types into a computer keyboard. The user who installed the program or hardware device can then view all keys typed in by that user. Because these programs and hardware devices monitor the keys typed in a user can easily
find user passwords and other information a user may not wish others to know about.
Keyloggers, as a surveillance tool, are often used by employers to ensure employees
use work computers for business purposes only. Unfortunately, keyloggers can also
be embedded in spyware allowing your information to be transmitted to an unknown third party.
