Malicious Hackers


One of my friends was emailed by a hacker the other day, saying he gained her password from an insecure site. While I have my doubts about this being true (more likely someone in a third-world country who’s searching for money), I wanted to just post this as a warning for insecure sites: [sign in to see URL]

He’s the kind of person who posts the answers to all school assignments online and asks for a ton of money for each emoticon It makes me SO mad!

Yeah. But as long as he doesn't charge $800, I suppose it's not too bad.

Re: Malicious Hackers


These kinds of warnings can be completely bogus, or sometimes a way to get a person to inadvertently enter their password by following a link to a fake page.

My best advice for a "prevention > cure" solution is to use a service like Dashlane to manage your passwords and generate a unique password for every site. You just need to create a good master password to manage them all.

The free service is good if you use less that fifty websites (it might seem like you don't use many, but it can all add up if you buy things online for example) but I use their premium option.

It costs me just over $3 a month and offers unlimited passwords and usage on all my devices. I think it's a good deal. For less than the cost of one coffee a month you get complete protection. And even if somehow somebody got your password for one site, that's just one password and every other account is safe. Whereas if you use the same password everywhere, if that gets revealed you're screwed.

Re: Malicious Hackers


That's a smart idea emoticon We just have to hope and pray that no one ever learns how to hack DashLane (though I know it'd be very, very protected).

When I was on here, I used to change my password frequently, but I've kept mine the same for the past few years. And used a very similar version to it for my email emoticon Oh dear, probably given too much away now emoticon

Hacked your account! The password was "pa55word". Now I'll proceed to delete every Takeshi's Castle thread. emoticon
