What you can do to help prevent from being hacked?

This is a very serious Situation for all of use since we are all in a technological age to were we use phones and computers to help with our day to day lives

Sadly I have been a victim of Hacking a few times once during the end of the year some one Hacked in to my Pay pall account and stole 271 dollars and again just recently some one hacked into my e-mail account and was sending all types of Porn and spam mail to my friends and family
Talk about embarrassing when Your Dad calls you to ask why you have sent him a link to your ADULT web sight

So I thought this form would be a good Idea to have so we can share Ideas on what to do when you are hacked and ways of helping Preventing it form Happening

To Prevent it form happening

*Change your pass words often
I know that its simple to keep the same password the same but believe me when I say the computer biological code is 010011001 and those represent not only numbers but also letters

*Clear Private Data from your web browser
Most if not all internet browser have away to clear private data as well as cookies from your computer. Not only dose this help protect you passwords it also helps Keep your computer in good Maintenances.

*For Passwords Uses a Series of Capital letters and numbers
This will actually give you a stronger protection then any thing else.The stronger your password the harder it is for you to be hacked

*Get some sort of Malware scanner for your computer
believe it or not most virus and hacks happen because of Malware on your computer.Malware are found most of the times in the pop-ups that happen on your computer

*If you Have a pop-up blocker on your browser uses it
Those pop up protection's are there for your safety and if you clear your private data the pop-up counter will also be cleared

*Be sure to run virus scans and Malware scans regularly
This not only protects your computer it protects you too a lot of your Private information is stored on your computer hard drive.

How to clear Private Data

This is Pretty simple

* Once the tab for clear private data you wanna make sure every box is checked by doing this it also erases any saved password you might have on your browser

* Tell Family and Friends so they can advise you if they receive any thing that you did not send them*

* Run every scan you have to check for malwear and virus

* Clear all private data on every browser

  1. Regularly download your updates for your Operating System, especially if you use Microsoft Windows, and any version of XP, Vista, and Windows 7. Microsoft OS's are always patchy, and full of bugs, protect yourself by staying up to date.

  2. Regularly download and update the virus definitions for your Anti-Virus program, whether its bought off the shelf, or freeware like AVG. This will help to protect your PC from Malware and Virus infection.

  3. Don't turn your Anti-Virus program off, leave it on at all times, especially when you use the Internet, are connected to the Internet, disconnect from the Internet, and when you use USB flash-drives, and external devices like an external hard-drive. Viruses can be copied onto your PC from a USB Flash drive, it happens.

  4. If you use any kind of device with a portable onboard memory that 'plugs' into your PC, like a USB Flash Drive or an MP3 Player, use your Anti-Virus program and 'scan it' for viruses. It's that easy to infect your PC with a virus if you don't take proper precautions and scan the USB flash drive when you first plug it in. If you are switching the Flash drive between different PC's you can easily infect the other PC if there's a virus on one already.

  5. Becareful what you download. Avoid Peer-to-Peer programs like Kazaa, and Q-Lite where you can join a global network of PC's and download stuff. You could be downloading viruses, and trojans too.

  6. Avoid websites that your Anti-Virus program pops up a warning about. Get out of there and leave the place. It's likely to be fairly bad for your PC if you hand around.

  7. Becareful of downloading 'Freeware' that is software that is opensource, an you can download and use for free. If you want opensource packages like OpenOffice, go to the actual developer's website and download it from there directly, or find a reputable website with good online security, and download it there. Don't go to third-party sites.

  8. Do not give out your passwords to anyone. You wouldn't give a stranger the keys to your house. Think first, and be sensible.

  9. Be cautious about using different websites to buy stuff online. Check out their security policies first, especially for end-user protection, changing of passwords, and secure logins to the website itself, data-encryption, and protection of passwords.
    If you are ever about to 'login' to a website login the 'Secure' way. Check the address bar and the URL (that's the thing that reads WWW.WEBSITE.COM). If you can login securely it should have this: 'HTTPS:' in place of the 'HTTP:' before the website URL address, in the address bar in your browser window. The HTTPS stands for the 'Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol' it means that when you login your password is encrypted. Banks use this type of login alot when you use online banking. The web address for secure login should read (HTTPS: before the website URL).

  10. Clear cookies, caches, and browser history regularly.

  11. Do not write your passwords down on your PC, it doesn't take much for a person to plant a keylogger program onboard your hard-drive, so that they can record every keystroke you make.

  12. If you shop online using a direct debit card or a credit card, check out with your bank on what security measure you can take to protect yourself on their end, and make certain that you only shop with websites that have a stringent, and tight online security and protection policy.

  13. Regularly use your Anti-Virus program and do a 'Full System Scan' or a 'Whole System Scan' to scan every single inch of your computer's internal hard-drive to detect for viruses.

I can only hope and pray that this information helps you from getting hacked as well. If you have tips for helping or preventing Hacking please feel free to share your tips.
