Internet Hacking and Identity Theft the Probability of becoming a Victim without Knowing it

With the revolutionary fast changing world of Internet makes our life run through the soft touch in a keyboard through fingertips. Recidivist individual or group connive to render  their palpable work of eavesdropping to ones account and testing the vulnerable homepage they like is what seem to be unfathomable during the introduction of the Internet to the world. And the once extra-hard to penetrate softwares and firewalls were translated into an open playground of the not so expert infotech person who’s silent type persona can sow hostile effects to unaware victim especially the identity and other personal data he’s been keeping secretly. 

The anti-cybercrime policy seems to be no match to those infotech-villains who can extract whatever they seem to think they need or helpful in their own interest would do it anytime anywhere and in the magnitude they’re only satisfied with. Does our personal data really safe in this high technology age? Are Firewalls efficiently protecting our data saved in the so called internet vault run by the largest internet domain? So many questions and chilling effect it brings to us once we fell to these braggarts. Does a faster internet speed do the trick of getting away safely from these cyber criminals lurking around the World Wide Web of everything and effectively do the unwanted transaction to your bank and personal needs. In this age of digital technology we should exercise with utmost care our transactions with any financial institution to avoid being trap in a black hole of identity theft and be surprised with a huge bill of credit card paid expenses your wild imagination could ever make. 

We are all fascinated with the breeze results of our searches in the bar that we forget to check some important symbols to look at in the same bar to check the authenticity of the information spread right in our face. We reluctantly forget that it is twice dangerous to make your transaction in the Internet than haggle a piece of apple in the market. In the market the fear of getting a rotten apple is highly probable and the fear of getting your information hacked is at highest since we are being watch somewhere else simultaneously a thousand times. So how do we fight this is a question that needs a better and in a laymans term solution. 

With the world interconnected transactions and communications it became a good fishing ground for the hackers watching events unfold right in their mischievous minds gifted with high mathematical IQ and strong drive to commit the acts motivated by the weaknesses of the infotech world. 

Changing password in your own convenient cycle will create an unpredictable pattern to their monitoring system. Lifting out of all browsing history including downloads leaves no print to select and scrutinize or analyze for their own means. Thinking before you click is the one of the most deterrent with high impact results. Social media coming from the word itself doesn’t tell to you to go so much in your personal level and doing so will reciprocate into a simple but hard to solve problem big time. OTP or one time password should be treated with care and responsibility at high level to avoid being the unwanted victim. 

Hackers lurk around 24/7 and they’ve investment in this activity enough to run a digital office and continuously trained and extracts or lifting information at a random basis. They do have a preset software that they’ve manipulatively improve for their own use. Identity theft is just a part of the whole wherein they can discover or invent data eating program or crushed and crashed your efiles sparingly. What is most disturbing the propagation or increasing number of young individuals who finds the rewards it brings to be a certified one. Does password protect question really makes our personal sites safe and indestructible? Creating your questions in your own vernacular language will somehow do the trick as what we’ve heard from the US $ 81,000,000.00 bank heist done to an Asian bank institution. The simple misspelling of a word have provided the turning point of flagging then the transaction. 

I bet most of the passwords being used is already incripted and randomly tested to find its email address match. Eavesdropping is one of the most common type of hacking we are unaware of, have you tried logging off and found yourself stuck in your seat for a longer than usual sign offs? Had your earphones resonates foreign language speaking voice as if talking to someone? And another way to normally detect that your site is hacked is when you find your new email address locked in a new domain asking followers from Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Vine and Facebook. Don’t panic but study the link bar and there you’ll find the open door you’ve left the last time you’ve logged out in the web. Erase after restoring all the browsing history to secure your hardware at safe mode. You doing the geeky thing without being geeky. 

Though we have the slowest snail pace internet speed in Asia it makes us the most susceptible and an easy target. Single coverage return the same protection unlike with the presence of a DIGITAL HIGHWAY where all domain can ride and pass on with strict protection and authenticity check before reaching its destined receiver of point of connection. The multiple belt of authentication of ensuring it was created by a human user and not as the pre-set one is one of the modest way to survive this digital world or Internet safety and healthy use.
