Weak or strong the all fall sometimes.
Nowadays, Internet hacking is the most dangerous things that may happen to you. Some people could think that their password is secured however, for other it is just a matter of time to hack into your system and turn your life into a mess.
This research has proved me that most people think their live is secure, their password is save, on the other hand some of them thought that they might even find themselves hack someday. Today, I tried to hack into the system of three of my closest friends. The first one was an Email password, the other one was an online Banking, the last but not least was putting you in your friend mind and tried to figure out his Facebook password.
Password cracking is the process of ...view middle of the document...
There are many way of doing so just a manner of time and wisdom.
For instance, let take a look of the most social network uses this day. Facebook; is an online social networking service, that helps you to keep up with friends faster than ever, see what your friends are up to, allow you to share updates, photos and videos and so one. According to Henris levis; a social network researcher, he stated that there is 1.15 billion of people that frequently use Facebook almost every day. According to him, there is at least one of them every single minute that have been hack in without even notice. We share our lives on Facebook. We share our birthdays and our anniversaries. We share our vacation plans and locations. We share the births of our sons and the deaths of our fathers. We share our most cherished moments and our most painful thoughts. We divulge every aspect of our lives. But we sometimes forget who is watching.
Password, weak or strong the all fall sometime into the hand of a hacker or a programmer. Likewise, my friends and I thought that we had a secure and uncracking password, I proved them wrong by hacking their account without their knowledge. We use Facebook as a tool to connect, but there are those people who use that connectivity for malicious purposes. We reveal what others can use against us. They know when we're not home and for how long we're gone. They know the answers to our security questions. People can practically steal our identities and that's just with the visible information we purposely give away through our public Facebook profile.
The scariest part is that as we get more comfortable with advances in technology, we actually become more susceptible to hacking. This paper had showed how strong or weak may appear to be our password we might be a victim one day. Hopefully, this will show you how to prevent it from happening to you by not trusting the internet and not even revealing it to someone else.
