7 Most Notorious Computer Hacker Groups of All Time With the recent attack on PlayStation Network and a bunch of high-profile websites, computer hackers are back in the limelight again. Hackers and hacker groups were quite famous in the 80’s and 90’s but their popularity started fading since the Y2K days. Today, we are once again witnessing hackers threatening to take on giant corporations sending chills down everyone's spine. We have already featured here some of the most infamous black hat hackers of all time. This time, we will take a quick look at some of the most notorious computer hacker groups that ever existed: Masters of Deception Security Practices: ASP.NET Security Practices at a Glance J.D.

Spambot Beware! Welcome to the "Spambot Beware" site. Here you will find information on how to avoid, detect, and harass spambots. Spambots are programs that extract email addresses from web pages, which are then used as targets for spam. Background and Information This section explains what a spambot is, how it works, and gives all the background material you will need to use the information on this site. Detection This section details how you can detect if spambots have (or still are) visiting your web pages, and stealing email addresses from them. Sybil attack Description[edit] In a Sybil attack the attacker subverts the reputation system of a peer-to-peer network by creating a large number of pseudonymous identities, using them to gain a disproportionately large influence. A reputation system's vulnerability to a Sybil attack depends on how cheaply identities can be generated, the degree to which the reputation system accepts inputs from entities that do not have a chain of trust linking them to a trusted entity, and whether the reputation system treats all entities identically.

Cheat Engine Features[edit] Cheat Engine can inject code into other processes and as such most anti-virus programs mistake it for a virus. There are versions that avoid this false identification at the cost of many features (those which rely upon code injection). Spam Buster by Contact Plus Corporation This version of Spam Buster is time limited and will expire afer 30 uses. Or if you wish to try the special challenge-response spam manager try this: Spam Buster requires a POP3 email account such as provided from a local internet service provider and does not support proprietary email such as AOL , Compuserve, MSN, Juno, or web-based mail accounts such as Yahoo, or Hotmail. To use Spam Buster you customize the filters for selecting exactly which emails you want deleted. Based upon your filters you can keep get rich quick schemes and pornographic email out of your email box.

Drive-by download Drive-by download means two things, each concerning the unintended download of computer software from the Internet: Drive-by downloads may happen when visiting a website, viewing an e-mail message or by clicking on a deceptive pop-up window:[2] by clicking on the window in the mistaken belief that, for instance, an error report from the computer' operating system itself is being acknowledged, or that an innocuous advertisement pop-up is being dismissed. In such cases, the "supplier" may claim that the user "consented" to the download, although actually the user was unaware of having started an unwanted or malicious software download. Websites that exploit the Windows Metafile vulnerability (eliminated by a Windows update of 5 January 2006) may provide examples of drive-by downloads of this sort.

8 Things You Won't Believe Can Be Hacked If movies are to be believed, hackers are mostly kept busy fighting the man with CGI animations of smiley faces, or else dwelling in the darkest corners of their mothers' basements and doing purely nerdy stuff that never affects the real world. But neither assumption is true: Hacking does not look like a rad skateboarder busting a kickflip over an onyx tower, and hackers do gain access to things that can affect your daily life ... and sometimes, even end it. #8.
