Computer hacking is the practice of altering computer hardware and software to
carry out a goal outside of the creators original intention. People who slot in
computer hacking actions and activities are often entitled as hackers.
The majority of people assume that hackers are computer criminals. They
fall short to identify the fact that criminals and hackers are two entirely unrelated
things. Media is liable for this. Hackers in realism are good and extremely
intelligent people, who by using their knowledge in a constructive mode help
organizations, companies, government, etc. to secure credentials and secret
information on the Internet.
Years ago, no one had to worry about Crackers breaking into their
computer and installing Trojan viruses, or using your computer to send attacks
against others. Now that thing have changed, it's best to be aware of how to
defend your computer from damaging intrusions and prevent black hat hackers.
Rampant hacking is systematically victimizing computers around the world. This
hacking is not only common, but is being executed without a flaw that the
attackers compromise a system, steal everything of value and entirely rub out
their pathway within 20 minutes. So, in this Book you will uncover the finest ways
to defend your computer systems from the hackers
This Book is written by keeping one object in mind that a beginner, who is
not much familiar regarding computer hacking, can easily, Learn these Topics
covering every characteristic linked to computer security.
After Reading this book you will come to recognize that how Hacking is
affecting our every day routine work and can be very hazardous in many fields like
bank account hacking etc. Moreover, after carrying out this volume in detail you

Must Know This before Start Learning

Hello Friends, from a past everyone is learning hacking
hacking and hacking. But they just start doing it,
without knowing the basic facts. Here i will share some
basic things with you , which you should know before
starting your tour of learning hacking.
First there are many website available that will ask you
for private info/money in return of Hacking tool or who
claim to Hack Email Ids in return of money. All such
things are Scam . Nothing Works.And after purchasing
the tool you can not report even because in deep you are
too purchasing sum thing illegal.
One thing you should know that there is no direct
software on the planet that cna help you to hack
Facebook , Google , Yahoo, NASA or any other big
website. All the software that claim to do so are
scam.Instead of wasting your money on such rubbish
things , do use basci keyloggers and social engineering
techniques. Once you become perfect you can hack
almost any email account.
SOme people download lots of Keyloggers or Trojans
which you find as freeware on internet mostly on
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

Page 5 2/6

hacking forums and underground blogs. Hackers are

not fools. They compile Keyloggers and Trojans almost
with any such software and when you install them , you
are already hacked before even trying to hack
others.SO don't be fool be smart.
May be there are hundreds of free tool available which
are virus free and can be used for hacking but you are
never going to be a good hacker without the knowledge
of programming and scripting languages. When you are
going to use only ready made softwares and would
depend on them for hacking anything then your
functionality would be limited up to the functionality of
the software. Here i am not saying to learn all languages
but try your hands on languages like perl and python
they are far much better than C and C++ , mainly
concentrated on LOGIC.
So Never Ever Under estimates the term Hacker. A
Hacker Is Not a person who just hacks email ids or
deface websites but a True Hacker is a Computer
Genius who the knowledge of computers more than
anyone.and he contribute his hacking skilss to help the
Next time think before asking the question "How
much will I get in this field? because, if you have so
many skills, you really dont have to run after money.
Success comes and money follows itself.

Every Hacker Must Read This.

*Activity Of Real Hackers*
Before we go ahead, lets clear who are hackers? Here,
we are highlighting original hackers, who learn
programming themselves, not the intruders peeking in
your computer. Well, if you want to become a hacker or
looking forward to be one, here are some common
habits of hackers that you can adopt to sound like a real
Snoopiness; Most Common Habit of Hackers
Most important habit hackers have is curiosity and a
hunger to know everything. Any case you put up on a
hacker, he will justify the entire how, what and who
questions. After that you can rely on him to bring up
the defects and tell you how to bring perfection.
So, one not only need snoopiness but also be fond of
research and learning to become a successful hacker.
Hackers; Best In Ethics And Strict In Discipline
What kind of image comes up in mind when you think
of a hacker? A computer-geek T-shirt guy with glasses
and munching snacks all the time? But this is how
media shows you a hacker. If you happen to get in touch
with a real-life hacker, you will get to know they are
best in ethics and discipline.
Corporations have trouble working with hackers, not

because they dont perform, that is they couldnt get

them to work in fixed timings. They would like to work
24 hours a day if left on own.
Tranquility Seeking; Famous Habit Of Hackers
Hackers are not party-people and its quite rare to find
one whooping around, unless he come-by and give-away
the Windows Source free. Even their entertainment
activities, such as puzzles, chess and reading, are a
source of tranquility.
If ever get to stumble upon some hackers party, all you
will find is role-playing games and old-times dress-ups.
Working Independently, A Strict Habit Of Hackers
Hackers prefer to work independently and avoid going
along schedules or regulations. They would rather bypass the rules and get a work done by themselves when
it comes to depend upon others working within the
limits of bureaucracy.
Liberty; Oldest Habit of Hackers
Its certainly a misconception that hackers are
rebellious. Only condition where they can become
revolutionary is when you restrain them being just to
their work.
A practical example is the story of our hero, Richard
stall man, and his free Software foundation. It all
started when Mr. Stallman couldnt get his computer
fixed up due to copyrights. Thats what made him so

much dedicated to computing-freedom.

Hackers Self-admiration In Their Craftsmanship
Inside every hacker there is a young kid haughtily
boasting about his creativity, look isnt it amazing?
Hackers arent interested in geeky stuff, like writing
irksome software which can track a customers
accounts in a database. They would rather create
something innovative and brilliant, for instance
program an AI chess-game in Flash, just because its
Common Slogan Of Hackers, Looking On Bright Side
Hackers do yap about how mind-sloths and fool general
people are, although they take everybody as exception
to general people. Honestly, a true hacker works with
one ambition in mind, theyll make this world better for
all. And they wouldve done it if there was anything out
of machine they could work for.

What is a Hacker?
In computer networking, hacking is any
technical effort to manipulate the normal
behavior of network connections and
connected systems. A hacker is any person
engaged in hacking. The term "hacking"
historically referred to constructive,
clever technical work that was not
necessarily related to computer systems.
Today, however, hacking and hackers are
most commonly associated with malicious
programming attacks on the Internet and
other networks.

Origins of Hacking
M.I.T. engineers in the 1950s and 1960s first
popularized the term and concept of hacking. Starting
at the model train club and later in the mainframe
computer rooms, the so-called "hacks" perpetrated by
these hackers were intended to be harmless technical
experiments and fun learning activities.
Later, outside of M.I.T., others began applying the term
to less honorable pursuits. Before the Internet became
popular, for example, several hackers in the U.S.
experimented with methods to modify telephones for
making free long-distance calls over the phone network
As computer networking and the Internet exploded in
popularity, data networks became by far the most
common target of hackers and hacking.

Hacking vs. Cracking

Malicious attacks on computer networks are

officially known as cracking, while hacking truly
applies only to activities having good intentions.
Most non-technical people fail to make this
distinction, however. Outside of academia, its
extremely common to see the term "hack"
misused and be applied to cracks as well.

Common Network Hacking


Hacking on computer networks is often done

through scripts or other network programming.
These programs generally manipulate data
passing through a network connection in ways
designed to obtain more information about how
the target system works. Many such pre-packaged
scripts are posted on the Internet for anyone,
typically entry-level hackers, to use. More
advanced hackers may study and modify these
scripts to develop new methods. A few highly
skilled hackers work for commercial firms with
the job to protect that company's software and
data from outside hacking.
Cracking techniques on networks include
creating worms, initiating denial of service
(DoS)attacks, or in establishing
unauthorized remote access connections to a

Unified Datagram Protocol (UDP)

The User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is one of the

core members o internet Protocol Suite, the Set of
network protocols used For the Internet. With
UDP, computer applications can send messages, in
this can referred to as datagrams, to other hosts
on an Internet Protocol (IP) network without
requiring prior communication to set up special
transmission channels or data paths. The protocol
was designed By David P. Reed in 1980 and
formally defined in RFC 768.

UDP uses a simple transmission model without

implicit hand-shaking dialogues for providing
Reliability, Ordering, or data integrity. Thus,
UDP provides an unreliable service and datagram
may arrive out of order, appear duplicated or go
missing without notice. UDP assumes that error
checking and correction is either not necessary or
performed in the application, avoiding the
overhead of such Processing at the network
interface level

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a standard
technology for managing the names of Web sites
and other Internet domains. DNS technology
allows you to type names into your Web browser
like and your
computer to automatically find that address on
the Internet. A key element of the DNS is a
worldwide collection of DNS Server.

What Is a DNS Server?

A DNS server is any computer

registered to join the Domain Name
System. A DNS server runs specialpurpose networking software,
features a public IP address, and
contains a database of network
names and addresses for other
Internet hosts.

DNS Root Servers

DNS servers communicate with each other
using private network protocols. All DNS
servers are organized in a hierarchy. At the
top level of the hierarchy, so-called root
servers store the complete database of
Internet domain names and their
corresponding IP addresses. The Internet
employs 13 root servers that have become
somewhat famous for their special role.
Maintained by various independent agencies,
the servers are aptly named A, B, C and so on
up to M. Ten of these servers reside in the
United States, one in Japan, one in London,
UK and one in Stockholm, Sweden.

DNS Server Hierarchy

The DNS is a distributed system, meaning that only the 13 root
servers contain the complete database of domain names and IP
addresses. All other DNS servers are installed at lower levels of the
hierarchy and maintain only certain pieces of the overall database.
Most Lower level DNS servers are owned by businesses or Internet
Service Providers (ISPs). For example, Google maintains various
DNS servers around the world that manage the,, and other domains. Your ISP also maintains DNS
servers as part of your Internet connection setup.
DNS networking is based on the client / server architecture. Your
Web browser functions as a DNS client (also called DNS resolver)
and issues requests to your Internet provider's DNS servers when
navigating between Web sites.
When a DNS server receives a request not in its database (such as a
geographically far away or rarely visited Web site), it temporarily
transforms from a server to a DNS client. The server automatically
passes that request to another DNS server or up to the next higher
level in the DNS hierarchy as needed. Eventually the request
arrives at a server that has the matching name and IP address in its
database (all the way to the root level if necessary), and the
response flows back through the chain of DNS servers to your

IP addresses to devices, then releases and renews
these addresses as devices leave and re-join the
Internet Service Providers (ISPs) usually use

ARP - Address Resolution Protocol

ARP converts an Internet Protocol (IP) address to its
corresponding physical network address. ARP is a lowlevel network protocol, operating at Layer 2 of the OSI
ARP usually is implemented in the device drivers of
network operating systems. It is most commonly seen
on Ethernet networks, but ARP has also been
implemented for ATM, Token Ring, and other physical
networks. RFC 826 documented the initial design and
implementation of ARP.
ARP works on Ethernet networks as follows. Ethernet
network adapters are produced with a physical address
embedded in the hardware called the Media Access
Control (MAC) address. Manufacturers take care to
ensure these 6-byte (48-bit) addresses are unique, and
Ethernet relies on these unique identifiers for message
delivery. When any device wishes to send data to
another target device over Ethernet, it must first
determine the MAC address of that target given its IP
address These IP-to-MAC address mappings are

Page 59


derived from an ARP cache maintained on each device.

If the given IP address does not appear in a device's
cache, that device cannot direct messages to that target
until it obtains a new mapping. To do this, the initiating
device first sends an ARP request broadcast message on
the local subnet. The host with the given IP address
sends an ARP reply in response to the broadcat,
allowing the initiating device to update its cache and
proceed to deliver messages directly to the target.

What is (Computer) Networking?

In the world of computers, networking is

the practice of linking two or more
computing devices together for the
purpose of sharing data. Networks are
built with a mix of computer hardware
and computer software.

Area Networks
Networks can be categorized in several different
ways. One approach defines the type of network
according to the geographic area it spans.Local
area networks (LANs), for example, typically span
a single home, school, or small office building,
whereas wide area networks (WANs), reach
across cities, states, or even across the world.
The Internetis the world's largest public WAN.

Network Design
Computer networks also differ in their design.
The two basic forms of network design are
calledclient/server and peer-to-peer. Client-server
networks feature centralized server computers
that store email, Web pages, files and or
applications. On a peer-to-peer network,
conversely, all computers tend to support the
same functions. Client-server networks are much
more common in business and peer-to-peer
networks much more common in homes.
A network topology represents its layout or
structure from the point of view of data flow. In
so-called bus networks, for example, all of the
computers share and communicate across one
common conduit, whereas in a star network, all
data flows through one centralized device.
Common types of network topologies include bus,
star, ring networks and mesh networks.

Network Protocols

Communication languages used by computer

devices are called network protocol. Yet another
way to classify computer networks is by the set of
protocols they support. Networks often implement
multiple protocols with each supporting specific
applications. Popular protocols include TCP/IP,
the most common protocol found on the Internet
and in home networks.

Home Networking
While other types of networks are built and
maintained by engineers, home networks belong
to ordinary homeowners, people often with little
or no technical background. Various
manufacturers produce broadband
router hardware designed to simplify home
network setup. Home broadband routers allow
devices in different rooms to efficiently share
a broadband Internet connection, enable people to
more easily share their files and printers within
the network, and help with overall network
Home networks have increased in capability with
each generation of new technology. Years ago,
people commonly set up their home network just
to connect a few PCs, share some documents and
perhaps a printer. Now its common for
households to also network game consoles, digital
video recorders, and smartphones for streaming
sound and video. Home automation systems have
also existed for many years, but these too have
grown in popularity more recently with practical

Business Networks
Small and home office (SOHO) environments
use similar technology as found in home
networks. Businesses often have additional
communication, data storage, and security
requirements that require expanding their
networks in different ways, particularly as the
business gets larger. Whereas a home network
generally functions as one LAN, a business
network tends to contain multiple LANs.
Companies with buildings in multiple locations
utilize wide-area networking to connect these
branch offices together. Though also available
and used by some households, voice over
IP communication and network storage and
backup technologies are prevalent in businesses.
Larger companies also maintain their own
internal Web sites, called intranets to help with
employee business communication.

Wired vs. Wireless Networking

Many of the same network protocols, like TCP/IP,
work in both wired and wireless networks.
Networks with Ethernet cables predominated in
businesses, schools, and homes for several
decades. More recently, however, wireless
alternatives have emerged as the premier
technology for building new computer networks,
in part to support smartphones and the other new
kinds of wireless gadgets that have triggered the
rise of mobile networking.

What is Wireless Computer Networking?

Wireless networks utilize radio waves and/or

microwaves to maintain communication channels
between computers. Wireless networking is a
more modern alternative to wired networking that
relies on copper and/or fiber optic cabling
between network devices.
A wireless network offers advantages and
disadvantages compared to a wired network.
Advantages of wireless include mobility and
elimination of unsightly cables. Disadvantages of
wireless include the potential for radio
interference due to weather, other wireless
devices, or obstructions like walls.
Wireless is rapidly gaining in popularity for both
home and business networking. Wireless
technology continues to improve, and the cost of
wireless products continues to decrease. Popular
wireless local area networking (WLAN) products
conform to the 802.11 "Wi-Fi" standards. The
gear a person needs to build wireless networks
includes network adapters (NICs), access points
(APs), and routers.

What Are the Benefits of Networking?

The benefits of networking (either wired or wireless) in

homes are:

File Sharing - Network file sharing between

computers gives you more flexibity than using floppy
drives or Zip drives. Not only can you share photos,
music files, and documents, you can also use a home
network to save copies of all of your important data
on a different computer. Backups are one of the most
critical yet overlooked tasks in home networking.

Printer / Peripheral Sharing - Once a home

network is in place, it's easy to then set up all of the
computers to share a single printer. No longer will you
need to bounce from one system or another just to
print out an email message. Other computer
peripherals can be shared similarly such as network
scanners, Web cams, and CD burners.
Internet connection sharing - Using a home
network, multiple family members can access the
Internet simultaneously without having to pay
anISP for multiple accounts. You will notice the
Internet connection slows down when several people
share it, but broadband Internet can handle the extra
load with little trouble. Sharing dial-up Internet
connections works, too. Painfully slow sometimes, you
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

- 71 -Namit

Page 71


will still appreciate having shared dial-up on those

occasions you really need it.

Multi-player Games - Many popular home

computer games support LAN mode where friends
and family can play together, if they have their
computers networked.
Internet Telephone Service Socalled Voice over IP (VoIP) services allow you to make
and receive phone calls through your home network
across the Internet, saving you money.
Home Entertainment - Newer home
entertainment products such as digital video
recorders (DVRs) and video game consoles now
support either wired or wireless home networking.
Having these products integrated into your network
enables online Internet gaming, video sharing and
other advanced features.

Although you can realize these same benefits with a

wired home network, you should carefully consider
building a wireless home network instead, for the
following reasons:
1. Computer mobility. Notebook computers and
other portable devices are much affordable than they
were a few years ago. With a mobile computer and
wireless home network, you aren't chained to a network
cord and can work on the couch, on your porch, or

wherever in the house is most convenient at the

2. No unsightly wires. Businesses can afford to lay
cable under their floors or inside walls. But most of us
don't have the time or inclination to fuss with this in our
home. Unless you own one of the few newer homes prewired with network cable, you'll save substantial time
and energy avoiding the cabling mess and going
3. Wireless is the future. Wireless technology is
clearly the future of networking. In building a wireless
home network, you'll learn about the technology and be
able to teach your friends and relatives. You'll also be
better prepared for future advances in network
technology coming in the future.

Introduction to Making Wireless Network Connections

Laptops, smart phones, tablets and many other types of

consumer devices support wireless network connections.
Wireless has understandably become the preferred
form of computer networking for many people due to
its portability and convenience.
The three basic types of wireless network connections peer-to-peer, home router and hotspot- each have their
own specific setup and management considerations.

Page 74


Peer-to-Peer Wireless Connections

Connecting two wireless devices directly to each other is

a form of peer-to-peer networking. Peer-to-peer
connections allow devices to share resources (files, a
printer, or an Internet connection). They can be made
using various wireless technologies, Bluetooth and WiFi being the most popular choices.
The process of setting up peer-to-peer connections via
Bluetooth is called pairing. Bluetooth pairing often
involves linking a cell phone to a hands-free headset,
but the same process can also be used to connected two
computers or one computer and a printer. To pair two
Bluetooth devices, first ensure one of them is set to
be discoverable. Then find the discoverable device from
the other and initiate a connection, providing a key
(code) value if needed. The specific menu and button
names involved in configuration vary depending on the
type and model of device (consult the product
documentation for details).

Peer-to-peer connections over Wi-Fi are also called

wireless networks. Ad hoc Wi-Fi supports a wireless
local network containing two or more local devices.
Although peer-to-peer wireless offers a simple and
direct way to share information between devices, take
appropriate network security precautions to ensure
malicious people do not connect to your peer network
sessions: Disable Wi-Fi ad hoc mode on computers and
turn off pairing mode on Bluetooth phones when not
using those features.

Home Router Wireless Connections

Many home networks feature a Wi-Fi

wireless broadband router. Home routers simplify
the process of managing wireless network
connections inside a home. As an alternative to
setting up peer networking among client devices,
all of the devices instead link centrally to a router
that in turn shares the home Internet connection
and other resources.
To make wireless home network connections via a

router, first configure the router's Wi-Fi interface

. This establishes a local Wi-Fi network with the
chosen name and security settings. Then connect
each wireless client to that network. For example,

from Microsoft Windows PCs, choose the

from Mac OSX devices, open the AirPort

menu and click the item corresponding to the
home network
The first time a device is joined to a wireless
router, network security settings (the security type
and key or network passphrase) that match those
set on the router must be entered when prompted.
These settings can be saved onto the device and

Hotspot Wireless Connections

Wi-Fi hotspots allow people to access the Internet
while away from home (either at work, or
traveling, or in public locations). Setting up a
hotspot connection works similarly as for
connections to home wireless routers.
First determine whether the hotspot is open (free
for public use) or requires registration. Wi-Fi
hotspot locator services maintain databases
containing this information for publicly-accessible
hotspots. Complete the registration process if
necessary. For public hotspots, this can entail
subscribing via email (possibly with a payment
required). Employees of businesses may need preconfigured software installed on their devices to
register them.
Next, determine the hotspot's network name and
the required security settings. System
administrators of business hotspots provide this
information to employees and guests, while
hotspot locators or business proprietors provide it
for their customers.
Finally, join the hotspot as you would a home
wireless router (see instructions above). Take all

What is a Computer Virus?

A potentially damaging computer programme capable

of reproducing itself causing great harm to files or other
programs without permission or knowledge of the user.
Virus - A program that when run, has the ability to selfreplicate by infecting other programs and files on your
computer. These programs can have many effects
ranging from wiping your hard drive, displaying a joke
in a small box, or doing nothing at all except to replicate
itself. These types of infections tend to be localized to
your computer and not have the ability to spread to
another computer on their own. The word virus has
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

- 81 -Namit

Page 81


incorrectly become a general term that encompasses

trojans, worms, and viruses.
Types of viruses:The different types of viruses are as follows1) Boot Sector Virus: - Boot sector viruses infect
either the master boot record of the hard disk or the
floppy drive. The boot record program responsible for
the booting of operating system is replaced by the virus.
The virus either copies the master boot program to
another part of the hard disk or overwrites it. They
infect a computer when it boots up or when it accesses
the infected floppy disk in the floppy drive. i.e. Once a
system is infected with a boot-sector virus, any nonwrite-protected disk accessed by this system will
become infected.
Examples of boot- sector viruses are Michelangelo and
2) File or Program Viruses: - Some
files/programs, when executed, load the virus in the
memory and perform predefined functions to infect the
system. They infect program files with extensions like
.EXE, .COM, .BIN, .DRV and .SYS .
Some common file viruses are Sunday, Cascade.
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

Page 82


3) Multipartite Viruses: - A multipartite virus is a

computer virus that infects multiple different target
platforms, and remains recursively infective in each
target. It attempts to attack both the boot sector and the
executable, or programs, files at the same time. When
the virus attaches to the boot sector, it will in turn affect
the systems files, and when the virus attaches to the
files, it will in turn infect the boot sector.
This type of virus can re-infect a system over and over
again if all parts of the virus are not eradicated.
Ghostball was the first multipartite virus, discovered by
Fridrik Skulason in October 1989.
Other examples are Invader, Flip, etc.

4) Stealth Viruses: - These viruses are stealthy in

nature means it uses various methods for hiding
themselves to avoid detection. They sometimes remove
themselves from the memory temporarily to avoid
detection by antivirus. They are somewhat difficult to
detect. When an antivirus program tries to detect the
virus, the stealth virus feeds the antivirus program a
clean image of the file or boot sector.
5) Polymorphic Viruses: - Polymorphic viruses
have the ability to mutate implying that they change the
viral code known as the signature each time they spread
or infect. Thus an antivirus program which is scanning
for specific virus codes unable to detect it's presense.

6) Macro Viruses: - A macro virus is a computer

virus that "infects" a Microsoft Word or similar
application and causes a sequence of actions to be
performed automatically when the application is started
or something else triggers it. Macro viruses tend to be
surprising but relatively harmless.A macro virus is
often spread as an e-mail virus. Well-known examples
are Concept Virus and Melissa Worm.

If you use a computer, read the newspaper, or watch the

news, you will know about computer viruses or other
malware. These are those malicious programs that once
they infect your machine will start causing havoc on
your computer. What many people do not know is that
there are many different types of infections that are
categorized in the general category of Malware.

Malware - Malware is programming or files that are

developed for the purpose of doing harm. Thus,
malware includes computer viruses, worms, Trojan
horses, spyware, hijackers, and certain type of adware.
This article will focus on those malware that are
considered viruses, trojans, worms, and viruses, though
this information can be used to remove the other types
of malware as well. We will not go into specific details

about any one particular infection, but rather provide a

broad overview of how these infections can be removed.
For the most part these instructions should allow you to
remove a good deal of infections, but there are some
that need special steps to be removed and these won't be

note that not all adware programs are necessarily
considered malware.
There are many legitimate programs that are given for
free that display ads in their programs in order to
generate revenue. As long as this information is
provided up front then they are generally not
considered malware.
Dialler - A program that typically dials a premium
rate number that has per minute charges over and
above the typical call charge. These calls are with the
intent of gaining access to pornographic material.
Trojan- A program that has been designed to appear
innocent but has been intentionally designed to cause
some malicious activity or to provide a backdoor to
your system.
Worm- A program that when run, has the ability to
spread to other computers on its own using either massmailing techniques to email addresses found on your
computer or by using the Internet to infect a remote
computer using known security holes.

How Facebook Works?*

Hey Facebookies, since how long have you been
Facebooking? Well to be precise, Facebook has
been there for you since eight years but have you
ever wondered how Facebook works? Whats
behind that fancy curtain? OK! Its not a How-To
guide to use Facebook but we are talking about its
Have you ever been curious about whats lying
behind Facebook? And how Facebook really
works? Then lets talk some tech now.
How Facebook Works In Spotlight?
Facebook utilize lots of services and programming
languages to work. To be precise, Facebook servers
use LAMP with Memcache. Hey, we are not talking
about the table lamps! Basically LAMP stands for
Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP. Its understood
that you need more explanation on those complex
terms if you are not a techie.
Linux & Apache
If you are fortunate enough to see that black
dolphin logo ever on WWW then you certainly
know Linux. Well, its an open-source UNIX-like
kernel for Operating Systems and why Facebook
use Linux is because of its high security and its ease
of customization according to needs. Apache is

considered as the best and most popular HTTP

server No wonder why Facebook use Apache.
Ok! so far we know that Facebook works using
Linux OS and Apache servers. What about the
database where huge amounts of data, including
the Facebookies personal data, is stored? This is
where MySQL makes entry because its reliable and
speedy as well.
MySQL basically stores key values since data is
stored randomly among huge number of logical
PHP is basically a great WWW programming
language a scripting language. Facebook use this
language specifically because this language has a
good programmers community and this language
also has a great support as well.
We are done with LAMP but what about
Memcache? Any guess?Basically Memcache is an
open-source system for caching memory. All it do
is make dynamic sites like Facebook work faster by
allowing them to cache data in RAM instead of
going all the way to database.
Problems With LAMP System

Facebook has come across many problems due to

this LAMP system may be Facebook has grown
just amazingly fast for think-tanks. Among many
problems, major problem is that PHP is difficult to
configure for big websites it may not be optimised
for big websites. Moreover its not the fastest
executing-language out there.
Since dynamic growth of Facebook, it is facing
many problems like memory caching, data storage
and most importantly its database is very complex.
And to cover-up that backstage with another
curtain, Facebook has started some back-end and
open-source projects.
How Facebook Works Behind Curtains?
How Facebook works behind curtain is pretty
simple they create any program or service when
they need it and create a framework to make
creation of services hassle-free.. Facebook back
stage services are mostly written in languages like
Java, Python, Erlang and C++.
A list of all open-source projects can be found here
Moreover, here are some of important open-source

What Is A keylogger

A keylogger is a hardware device or a software

program that records the real time activity of a
computer user including the keyboard keys they press.
Keyloggers are used in IT organizations to troubleshoot
technical problems with computers and business
networks. Keyloggers can also be used by a family (or
business) to monitor the network usage of people
without their direct knowledge. Finally, malicious
individuals may use keyloggers on public computers to
steal passwords or credit card information.
Some keylogger software is freely available on the
Internet, while others are commercial or private
applications. Most keyloggers allow not only keyboard
keystrokes to be captured but also are often capable of
collecting screen captures from the computer. Normal
keylogging programs store their data on the local hard
drive, but some are programmed to automatically
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

- 96 -Namit

Page 96


transmit data over the network to a remote computer or

Web server.
Keyloggers are sometimes part of malware packages
downloaded onto computers without the owners'
knowledge. Detecting the presence of a keylogger on a
computer can be difficult. So-called antikeylogging programs have been developed to thwart
keylogging systems, and these are often effective when
used properly.

(a) Here is what a Hardware Keylogger Looks
like.:(b) Hardware Keylogger is nothing but a
programmed chip (Mostly in assembly
Language), so as to capture all the keystrokes
and save them in its internal memory. The
keylogger can then be taken out and all the
stored information can easily be assessed by the
hacker. Hardware Keylogger are most
commonly used in cyber cafes and other public
places where a lot of people come and access the
internet. Beware of such places.
(c) Always check the keyboard connectors before
accessing internet at such places. Hardware
Keylogger are extremely powerful and effective
and if they are actually installed on any machine

Page 98


and you use it, there is 99.9% chance of you

getting hacked.
(d) How can it affect you. Imagine you going to a
cyber cafe and make a bank transaction just to
pay your bills. No sooner you enter your login
detail, the hardware keylogger will save the
keystrokes. Some advance
hardware keyloggers might also take
screenshots at regular interval so that the
hacker knows the login details are for which
website or webpage.
(e) Once the hacker has all this information in the
Hardware Keylogger, imaging what all can he
do when he access that information. And this is
just a small example. There is much more
damage one can do with a hardware keylogger.
(f) Prevention: To secure yourself from such
attack, there is only one way. Check the
hardware of the computer you use at public
places and even your personal computer if your
friends come to your place often. Who knows
who might attach the hardware keylogger in
your machine.

response status codes.

The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)

maintains the official registry of HTTP status codes.
403 Forbidden
The request was a valid request, but the server is
refusing to respond to it. Unlike a 401 Unauthorized
response, authenticating will make no difference. On
servers where authentication is required, this commonly
means that the provided credentials were successfully
authenticated but that the credentials still do not grant
the client permission to access the resource (e.g. a
recognized user attempting to access restricted content).
501 Not Implemented
The server either does not recognize the request
method, or it lacks the ability to fulfill the request.
301 Moved Permanently
This and all future requests should be directed to the
given URI.
302 Found
This is an example of industry practice contradicting
the standard. The HTTP/1.0 specification (RFC 1945)
required the client to perform a temporary redirect (the
original describing phrase was "Moved Temporarily"),

Internet Firewalls

Ok, The Internet Firewall is a strange beast when you

find one. It is for those
of you who don't know, a system that secures off a part
of the net for pricate
or more interestingly for government use. You'll find
things like the FBI,CIA
etc.. all on the other side of a firewall of some
desciption. My research to
date has mainly been into the firewall that the FBI has,
as thatwas the very
first such address I got.
I was hanging around the IRC on csdvax at nsw uni and
a friend happened to
mention the address just as he logged off... it was, so i being the
good little hacker that i am had a pen beside me and
wrote it down to look into
later on. Unfortunately this friend of mine is in Israel
and was just leaving
when he gave it to me so i didn't have time to ask him
anything about it.

on right? I got onto irc
and asked a dude in #hack about it. He said the FBI has
a firewall and then he
went all quiet and wouldn't say another bloody word
about it. Now just about
everyone knows that irc is logged. If you say anything
like 'hack' 'hacked'
'password' 'passwd' etc.. the line of text gets written
into a log.. and i mean
who wouldn't log it? i would too so u can't blame them.

Recently I have also found that UTS actually switches
packets through to the FBI
firewall to be allowed or denied access. This brings me
to the second use for
the FBI firewall. It seems that at times they DO want
people from outside the
wall to be able to access their computers. And to do this
they have set up a
file with addresses that are allowed to access the
computers behind the wall.
Now by logging UTS with one of the various logging
programs I'd say that these
nodes could be easily found, as the programs (the good
ones) log where the
connections are made from and to and the login id and
password of course.
The only problem with this is that I have found UTS to
be one of the most secure
universities on the network in sydney. However nothing
is impossible and UTS is
certainly not hack proof.

What is Wi-Fi and how dose it work?

"Wi-Fi" is a type of wireless
networking protocol that allows
devices to communicate
without cords or cables.
1: Wi-fi uses antennas around
which wi-fi "hotspots" are
created. The hotspots are outlets
equipped to receive the radio
waves that power wireless
networking. Until recently, wifi has been confined to more
than 10,000 hot-spots in cafes,
bars and airport lounges. But
various projects are under way
to set up city-wide zones,
where a series of antennas are
installed in the streets, on
lampposts or street signs. The
hotspots around them together
create a much wider area of
coverage. Norwich has a mesh
network which links each
lamppost antenna to the next
creating a seamless wi-fi
hotspot around the center of
the city.

2: The source internet

connection is provided by a PC
or server to which the
antennas are connected either
wirelessly or via a cable.
3: Some mobile phones and
personal digital assistants
(PDA ) now have wi-fi chips
installed. With mobile phones,
this means conventional
networks can be bypassed and
inexpensive long-distance calls
made over the web (using Voice
over Internet Protocol, VoIP).
4: Many laptops and handheld
computers now come with
built-in wi-fi connectivity; it is
also possible to add wi-fi to
your computer with a special
card that plugs into a port on
your laptop.
Some organizations provide it
for free but maximums provide
it for business purpose only.

Tips To Secure Your Wifi Connection

1. Install a Firewall A firewall helps protect your PC by

preventing unauthorized users from gaining access to
your computer through the Internet or a network. It
acts as a barrier that checks any information coming
from the Internet or a network, and then either blocks
the information or allows it to pass through to your
2. Change the Administrative Password on your
Wireless Routers Each manufacturer ships their
wireless routers with a default password for easy initial
access. These passwords are easy to find on vendor
support sites, and should therefore be changed
3. Change the Default SSID Name and Turn Off SSID
Broadcasting This will require your wireless client
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

- 120 -Namit

Page 120


computers to manually enter the name of your SSID

(Service Set Identifier) before they can connect to your
network, greatly minimizing the damage from the
casual user whose laptop is configured to connect to any
available SSID broadcast it finds. You should also
change the SSID name from the factory default, since
these are just as well-known as the default passwords

4. Disable DHCP For a SOHO network with only a few

computers, consider disabling DHCP (Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol) on your router and assigning
IP addresses to your client computers manually. On
newer wireless routers, you can even restrict access to
the router to specific MAC addresses.
5. Replace WEP with WPA WEP (Wired Equivalent
Privacy) is a security protocol that was designed to
provide a wireless computer network with a level of
security and privacy comparable to what is usually
expected of a wired computer network. WEP is a very
weak form of security that uses common 60 or 108 bit
key shared among all of the devices on the network to
encrypt the wireless data. Hackers can access tools
freely available on the Internet that can crack a WEP
key in as little as 15 minutes. Once the WEP key is
cracked, the network traffic instantly turns into clear
text making it easy for the hacker to treat the network
like any open network. WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access)
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

Page 121


is a powerful, standards-based, interoperable security

technology for wireless computer networks. It provides
strong data protection by using 128-bit encryption keys
and dynamic session keys to ensure a wireless computer
network's privacy and security. Many cryptographers
are confident that WPA addresses all the known attacks
on WEP. It also adds strong user authentication, which
was absent in WEP.

What is Session Hijacking?

Session Hijacking is Stealing the
existing active Session. The main
purpose of Session Hijacking is to
bypass authentication process and
gain unauthorized access to the
computer or Website. In simple
words , hackers will login as some
other client using their Sessions.
TCP session hijacking is when a
hacker takes over a TCP session
between two machines. Since most
authentication only occurs at the
start of a TCP session, this allows
the hacker to gain access to a
Different Session Hijacking methods:
Session stealing is achieved by
following methods
1. Session fixation: In this method,
the Hacker sets a user's session id
to known victim. For example,
Hacker will send email to known
victim with a link that contains a
particular session id. If the victim
followed that link, the hacker can
use that session and gain access.
2. Session SideJacking(session
Sniffing): In this method, the
attacker use packet sniffing to and
steal the Session cookie. In order to
prevent this, some websites use SSL
(encrypts the session). but do not
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

- 123 -Namit

Page 123


use encryption for the rest of the

site once authenticated. This allows
attackers that can read the network
traffic to intercept all the data that
is submitted to the server or web
pages viewed by the client.
Unsecured Hotspots are vulnerable
to this type of Session Hijacking.
3. Client-side attacks (XSS, Malicious
JavaScript Codes, Trojans, etc):
Hacker can steal the Session by
running the Malicious Javascript
codes in client system. Usually
hackers attack some websites using
XSS and insert their own Malicious
Javascript codes.
In client point view it is trusted
website, he will visit the website.
When victim visit the link ,
Malicious Javascript will executed. It
will steal the Session cookies and
other confidential data.
4. Physical access: If the hacker has
physical access, it is easy for him to
steal the Session. Usually this will
occur in public cafe. In public cafe ,
one use login to some websites
(facebook, gmail). A hacker come
after victim can steal the session

A physical and data link layer technology for local
area networks (LANs). Ethernet was invented by
engineer Robert Metcalfe.
When first widely deployed in the 1980s, Ethernet
supported a maximum theoretical data rate of 10
megabits per second (Mbps). Later, so-called
"Fast Ethernet" standards increased this
maximum data rate to 100 Mbps. Today, Gigabit
Ethernet technology further extends peak
performance up to 1000 Mbps.
Higher level network protocols like Internet
Protocol (IP) use Ethernet as their transmission
medium. Data travels over Ethernet inside
protocol units called frames.
The run length of individual Ethernet cables is
limited to roughly 100 meters, but Ethernet
networks can be easily extended to link entire
schools or office buildings using network bridge

32-bit or 64-bit, what to choose

and Why
The tendency of a computers
processer to deal with information
on RAM (random access memory)
depends upon 32 bit and 64 bit
version of Windows. 64 bit version
can handle more RAM and apps than
32 bit.
Lets understand it in a simple way.
64 bit version can deal with physical
memory (RAM) above 4 GB and up
to 128GB (yes, it exists!) while 32bit version ...
can address RAM up to 4 GB only.
Therefore, if you have a 32 bit
version of Windows installed on
your computer then installing RAM
above 4 GB doesnt make sense.
The ability to handle large memory
makes the 64 bit version more
efficient while dealing with
processes. Hence, it increases the
overall performance of your PC. So
64 bit is more powerful in a
nutshell. Now lets check some more
things related to these two

Advantages of 64 bit computer-?The main advantage of using 64-bit

version of Windows is that it offers
better memory accessibility and
?Enhanced security features like
Kernel p@tch Protection, support
for hardware-backed data execution
protection, mandatory driver
signing, removal of support for 32bit drivers and removal of the 16bit subsystem available.
?Performance of those programs
that are specially written for 64 bit
operating system is great.
Disadvantages of 64 bit computer-There is no specific disadvantage of
using this version but there are
some things you have to take care
of before deciding to use it.
?You should check availability of
device drivers because 32 bit device
drivers do not work on 64 bit
?Most of the hardware devices are
not compatible with 64-bit
?Device drivers must be digitally
signed by the developer.
?Some programs of 32 bit arent
compatible with 64 bit.

[How to Choose a correct version of

64 bit version-?Selecting correct version of
Windows depends upon your
priority and need. If you want to
take advantage of large memory
(more than 4 GB) then you could go
for 64-bit version. But do check for
the 64-bit versions of various tools
and programs you use everyday
before making the switch.
?Most of new software and
hardware are supported by 64-bit
version. Check compatibility status
of your software and devices.
32 bit version-?32 bit versions are cheaper than
64 bit versions.
?If you are using old software and
hardware then you could go with
32-bit version because it can
support all your program and
Note: Most programs designed for
32 bit version can support 64-bit
version too (except some antivirus
programs). But if a program is
designed for 64 bit version then it
wont work on 32 bit version.

How Email Works?

Do You Ever Wonder How your email Client works ?
ok. if you have not thought about it watch this complete
ok. so let's get started
Email sending and receiving is controlled by the Email
servers. All Email service providers like gmail , yahoo
etc configure Email Server
before anyone can Sign into his or her account and start
communicating digitally.
Once the servers are ready to go, users from across the
world register in to these Email servers and setup an
Email account. When they have a fully working Email
account, they sign into their accounts and start
connecting to other users using the Email services.
We will talk Later about setting up an email server ,
register process and how the data is stored and how
login process works.
But now let's talk about email routing process. The
word Routing means the way it has come from or the
way it is going to .
So what is possibly routing process for your email ?
Have any guesses ? No . Don't worry i will tell you in

In this case we will just pretend that both users are
using the websites of and No
emailing programms are used.
Step one: ABC signs in to his Email account in, he then writes a mail to the and click on Send
and gets the message that the Email is sent successfully.
So easy ?
But what happens behind the curtain ?
Behind the curtains the Email from the computer of is forwarded to the
Email server of Server1 then look.s for on the internet and forwards the Email of
the for the account of XYZ.
receives the Email from and puts it in the
account of
This was just simple mechanism. Actually When abc
clicks on send email his ip address is tracked by and it is saved in the email id as headers .
Now a days almost all servers track user's ip address.

own ip address .
And by Editing or Watching these header you can
either send fake mail or can track the sender of email.
Header contains all the details about the route. More
talking later.
So when recieves an email from , the server then cheks about the previous
spam reports from that server , ip address of that server
and reputation and certificate of the server . Yes ,
actually these all process is done within few seconds.
Every good spam protected email server has antispam
measures like shows a warning when a email
is from that this email might not be
from google team .
and many keywords like you have won an iphone is
marked as spam. Email servers have huge database of
So if the checks and thinks that the email is
not a spam and not harm full it sends it to xyz's part .
yes , yes
an anti virus scan is also done .
And if the message is spam or server thinks so it is
stored to your spam box.

Protect Email Accounts From Spam

The following methods can be used to combat email
1. Use spam filters for your email account. If youre
using email services like Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc.
then spam filters are used by default. Each Spam filter
has its algorithm to detect spam emails and will
automatically move them to SPAM folder. This keeps
your inbox free from spam. However some spam emails
become successful to make their way into the inbox by
successfully bypassing the filters.
2. Do not post your email address in public forums, user
comments and chat-rooms. Give your email address
only to trustworthy websites while signing up for
3. While taking up online surveys and filling up
feedback forms, it is better not to give your personal
email address. Instead signup for a dummy email
account and use this for surveys and feedback forms.
4. While posting your contact email address on your
website use this format: emailaddress [at]
instead of This protects
your email address from being indexed by spam bots.
5. Do not respond to unknown messages. When you
receive a unknown email, avoid forwarding it to your

friends. Examples of unknown messages can be found

at If you really want to forward
it to your friends, make sure that you use Bcc
(blind certified copy) option to send the email. This will
hide all the email IDs to which the mail is forwarded.

What is Phishing?
Phishing is a method used by
internet thieves to acquire
sensitive information like
usernames, passwords, credit
card details, by disguising as a
trustworthy entity, and using
different ways of instant
messaging, web pages, software
and even text messages.
Why is phishing so spread?
Phishing has been known since
1996. Internet thieves had
published web pages that looked
similar to the original ones in
order to steal login information
from legitimate users and use
their accounts for spamming or
other purposes.
Phishing can be controlled, but
user intervention and caution is
required too. New phishing web
pages and e-mails are published
and sent daily and lots of
accounts are stolen.
E-mail phishing
Every internet user received at
least one e-mail telling him that
the bank wants his card details
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

- 142 -Namit

Page 142


for security purposes, or to enter

some link and log-in with his
credentials on a fake website.
Here is an example of an e-mail
sent from a bank.
As you can see the bank informs
the user that an unauthorized
withdrawal was attempted,
encouraging him to click the link
and enter his personal
information for verification. As
you may know, banks never ask
for personal confidential
information (like your card
details) via e-mail/web/phone.
The banks e-mail address can be
easily faked with a simple (even
free) cPanel e-mail account. In
order to avoid e-mail phishing,
do not enter your e-mail address
on webpages that you dont trust,
use an e-mail client along with a
spam filter, or anti-virus. Its best
to use an e-mail client with an
anti-virus capable of filtering
spam and detecting phishing.
Most of the online e-mail
providers have a spam filter, but
not all bad e-mails are filtered.
Thieves use programs to harvest
e-mails from internet, especially

find your e-mail address if its
listed on public websites.
Online phishing
Phishing through websites is very
common, and now, that everyone
has a Facebook account, hackers
are very determinate to access
their personal information,
especially for spamming.
For example, if you mistype
Facebook and you enter (DO NOT enter this
website!) you will see a page that
is identical to
On the right is a screenshot of
the website.If you can see, the
page looks exactly like but its not
Facebook. If you enter your email and password, you will be
redirected to the Facebook login
page, to make you think that you
didnt enter the e-mail and
password correctly. Fortunately,
the hackers forgot to change the
year of the copyright, making
some users recheck the URL of
the page.
Unfortunately, neither anti-virus
programs nor browsers can detect

this page as phishing attempt and

block it. You however can
manually set your anti-virus to
block this page.
In order to be safe, use an antivirus program and use its antiphishing feature to prevent these
sites from stealing your personal
IM phishing
Phishing may occur when using
an instant messenger, most often
from other stolen accounts that
send a mass message containing a
link where your login credentials
are stolen. Dont ever trust IMs
that say something like: check
out my new pic :D http://...
Also through IM, you can receive
links that will lead you to an .exe
file. Do not download any exe file
(or save any .exe file) from
anyone. Even if you trust the
user, his account may be stolen.
Its best to use an anti-virus
program and scan every

containing a zip attachment from
IRS, you know that you must not

download any files, especially

executable files without scanning
them first. If you dont like an
anti-virus program (although it is
strongly advised to use one), use
a free online service like However,
attachments can contain viruses.
You might say, what can a virus
do to my computer, Ill just
reinstall my operating system and
thats all.
No. They can do more. A
computer virus can spread to
other locations on your
computer, and even if you
completely delete all your
partitions, the virus might have
already sent your sensitive
personal information to a hacker.
What can it steal?
Well, if you have saved passwords
in your browser, its very easy.
Many viruses look for saved
passwords and auto-fill form data
in common used browsers. If they
find anything, they send all data
to a hacker that will then have
access to your passwords.
I dont save my passwords. I cant
get hacked.

Yes, you can. Some of these

viruses are key loggers. They
write a log file containing each
key you typed using your
keyboard. After some time, they
send the file to a hacker that uses
a program to analyze the file and
extract login info.
In order to be safe, use an antivirus program. Most anti-virus
program can detect a key logger.
Text message phishing
In some situations (in
some countries), you can receive
a call from an unknown number
that will say that theres a
problem with your phone
number, and in order to fix it,
you have to type a code and press
Green. When you do that, you
charge that SIM user account
from your account. Never trust
someone whos calling you with
an unknown number and never
give away your personal details.

double-check the websites and
software where you enter your
personal details.

Phishing is the most popular and widely used method

for hacking email accounts. Phishing is not as easy as
it's name. Creating a phishing page is an easy task and
any one can download it from various hacking forums
for free. The main step of phishing comes after creation
of fake login page..
How to send this fake page to the victim?
Here comes the Tab Napping which can make your
second step easy than before. No need to send fake page
via email to victim.
Tab Napping use the modern browser's multi tabbed
environment. Now a days all people use multiple tabs
for accessing Gmail, facebook, orkut and other websites
simultaneously. The trick is to confuse user in his/her
multiple tabs and redirect any of idle tab of his browser
to your phishing silently. Tab Napping works on the
user's assumption that a tabbed web page stays the
same when other Internet services are being accessed.
How does tab napping work?
It is done by checking wether your page is idle or not, if
it is idle or not used for some particular time period
then it gets redirected:
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

- 148 -Namit

Page 148


Things to be done:
1.check for mouse movement
2.check for scroll bar movement
3.check for keystrokes
If any of the above event is not triggered till few seconds
, this means user is not using that tab, either is off from
system or using other tab, so if these coditions are met,
then we redirect it to our phished page, which user
thinks it to be genuine page.
The idea behind this is very simple and is done by
javascript. Tab napping is all about the relation of 2
pages. suppose Page A and Page B. Victim was viewing
page A in a tab of a browser and then left this idle and
and now using some other website in another tab of
browser. If the user will not return to page A for some
pre-specified time, page A will automatically redirect to
Page B. This Page B is your phishing page. This
redirection and cheking for user actions is done by
Make a web page and use the tab napping script in that
page say it page A. This script will not affect the layout
or content of the page. This script will check for user
actions. If the page is idle for some time, this script will
redirect this page to a pre-specified page which may be
your phishing page. You have to specify this page in the
script. Be sure to change this in script.

this line will redirect to Gmail after 10 sec. Change this
location to the address of your phishing page. This line
is used 2 times in the script so change is both lines.
so, page A with tab napping script will redirect to
phishing page B.
Now send the link of the page A to your victim. This is a
normal page. If the page is idle for some time it will be
changed to page B otherwise no effect.

Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

It is a vulnerability found in websites which allows an
malicious attack/cracker to inject client-side scripts into
the web pages. By using this vulnerability an attaker
can deface a website, redirection attacks can be done
and session cookie stealing is also possiable by
exploiting this vulnerability.
There are two types of XSS vulnerability found in web
1. Non-persistent
2. Persistent
Non-persistent type of XSS vulnerability is the most
comman one. Non-persistent XSS happens when a
malicious HTML query is done by an attacker and that
query is used immiediatly by the server-side to generate
the page result.
Persistent type of XSS vulnerability is a dangerous kind
of vulnerability. This happens when a malicious HTML
query is done by the attacker and that query is
immediatly saved by the server and is permanently
displayed on the normal pages.

XSS vulnerable site via Non-persistent XSS

get a Jquery box saying "XSS Detected", if you got that

How To Protect Your Facebook Account

from Hackers
Here are some simple practices that will help to prevent
that from happening.
#1 Enable HTTPS
When you bookmark the URL for Facebook or any of
your other social networks, be sure to use HTTPS
instead of HTTP. This encrypts your communications.
In fact, you will have to temporarily disable this feature
any time you give access to a new application. That
alone should give you confidence that you have achieved
a greater level of protection.
#2 Disable Online Chat
All of us have witnessed Facebook scams, with the most
common being the infamous chat message Im in
the UK and have been mugged please send money so I
can get back home.
While I have no technical basis for this, it stands to
reason that the hackers get in through the chat service.
Every time I have noticed bogus comments allegedly
made by me to my Facebook friends, it is because I had
previously used the online chat.
To disable chat just click on the little wheel in the right
sidebar and take yourself offline. Then close the window
and make sure is registers as chat offline.

#3 Review Permissions Granted to Third Party Apps

When you grant access to Facebook apps, those
permissions endure long after you top using them.
Go to this link
and disable any you are no longer using.
You will probably be surprised at the long list
permissions your have previously granted!
#4 Activate Text Message Notifications
Facebook allows you to receive text notifications
whenever your account is accessed from a device other
than your primary computer or mobile device.
You simply go to Account Settings and then to Security
Settings to set-up the proper notifications to your
mobile device.
First go to login approvals then login notifications.
You can only choose email or text notifications. By
choosing text notifications you not only get an
immediate notice, but you also activate both your
mobile device and your primary computer as approved
access points.
#5 Maintain Public and Private Email Addresses
The email address you use for Facebook should be
distinct from the one you use where security is more
critical such as your online banking or Paypal
Print to PDF without this message by purchasing novaPDF (

Page 156


If your Facebook account gets hacked its embarrassing.
If that is the same email used on your more secure
accounts, now that vulnerability could be costly.
Obviously, if you are selective with your email
addresses and periodically change your passwords, you
minimize your chances of being hacked.
Did you know that anyone can search Facebook for an
email address? For example, if you are looking a
common name such as John Smith, you only need to
search with their email to find the right one.
This is handy for finding your friends on Facebook, but
also useful for hackers. The safe bet is to use distinct
passwords for your public and private email addresses.
There are even more ways to protect your Facebook
and other online accounts, but these 5 are the most
essential, and they are specific to Facebook, which
seems to be the site that is the most vulnerable.
