How a hacker can gain access to your PC?

hacker_gain_access

There are many ways in which a hacker can gain access to your PC. Infact it depends on the ability of hacker, in how many ways he/she can break into your PC. I am going to list how a hacker exploits already existing things to get his job done.Hacker needs to have the security feature turn off from your PC so that he can get into easily. The process now gets divided into two case.

  1. Hacker makes a fool out of you and you yourself help the hacker.
  2. Hacker exploits the level of security you have on your PC.

Now second option is the most difficult for a hacker (Remember, most difficult but not impossible). Its like you are fully armed at your end and he still manages to break into the security. The first option is very easy. A novice hacker to a Pro hacker, every class of hacker uses it and this is what I am going to explain in detail here.

Phishing Art : A fake page is designed looking exactly like a genuine one where users are asked to login & when they do it, details are sent to the hacker.

What you can do?

Always check the URL where you are logging in and if you find something suspicious, just close the window and open the page by typing the URL.

Trojans : Trojans are malicious program that disguised itself as something useful and attracts users. Users installing up the so called useful application end up with the malicious code installed on the system. Trojans can capture screenshots, log every key strokes, allow access to your hard disk and can use your PC for other hacking stuff.

What you can do?

Never use cracks, any suspicious tools & use security suite on PC.

Exploiting Vulnerability : This is what I am going to explain because this is the most important method on which every hacker works on. Every thing has flaws, nothing is perfect in this world. This is why beta versions & updates are released for fixing vulnerabilities left in the applications. Lets there is a application APP which has a flaw A which can be used to gain access to B which further allows you to control Z and Z allows you to take over the control of PC. Now this process of handling control can go from A to B, B to C can go on till Z. That means leading to a small flaw you can have access to a series of process/features which eventually allows to take over the PC.

What you can do?

Keep yourself updated with all patches of any software application you use.

Note : Never annoy a hacker. :cool: They can crack you and make you pay. :lol:

    Please stop defaming hackers.

    Don’t mix cracking with hacking.
    They don’t go hand in hand….people need to draw a line between these two terms….

      Why are you sounding so frustrated? If you want to be a hacker, no one can spoon fed you. You gotta learn by yourself.

    Hi all,not being rude or funny but your missing the point of why hackers are doing what they do. Sure there are people who simply use programs or follow shitty how too’s. But what makes a hacker a hacker is the obvious question ?. How do these things work and why and once they find out they realise weak points. we question everything and constantly study.wanna be a hacker ?. Learn to code and write programs at least 5 or 6 different languages understand all opererating systems home based and server, understand the protocals of communications and even telephone systems after that the rest will become obvious it will not happen over night.ive been into this for 15 years and im only 26 and i learn more everyday. follow those rules and one day you might become uber. thanks
