10 Hacking Tactics Hackers Us To Steal Your Data:

10. Keylogging is a type of surveillance spyware that record key strokes off your computer like emails information, password information or anything you type in on your computer. For example if you use your social security number or your bank account number, keylogging will capture those information.

9. Denial of Service (DoS\DDoS) is a way that hackers can use any devices connected to the internet and program it to send phony requests to a website or anything with an IP address to use up resources and take down the system by using up all of it’s resources. For example, security cameras have been used in the past to carry out DDOS attacks. Once the system become overwhelmed by getting fake traffic from multiple sources. It has to be taken offline. You will hear teams like botnets, also called zombie computers which are system that are taken over, sometimes unknowingly, by a hacker.

8. Waterhole attacks are when hackers take advantage of the face that their targeted victims often meet or work at particular physical or virtual location. So they “poison” that location to achieve malicious objective. Fake WiFi is used in such attacks. Hackers setup fake open WiFi access points that can be enticing to someone looking for a hot spot.  By setting up a fake WAP (Wireless Access Point) fake system hackers can  sniff unprotected data that transferred between the victims and their remote hosts/websites to get your login and password.

7. Eavesdropping (Passive Attacks) is when hackers use network tools known as sniffer to monitor a network to capture information they can use to steal information of companies or individual. The point isn’t to cause damage to computers but to harvest information as its transmitted, its also known as sniffing or snooping.

6. Phishing hackers sends an electronic/email message to an unsuspecting user under the impression that the message is from a trusted institution. This could be a link that ask you to click or an email that seems to come from a trusted company asking you to login to your account. The user is fooled into believing it’s from a legitimate company hence giving that fake company the information to login to an account or a network. 

5. Viruses (Active Attacks) Active attacks, such as viruses and Trojans are techniques where a hacker manipulates or deletes data to create a desired result. And a Trojan is simply a computer program that fools the user into thinking it’s another kind of program and once installed, releases the malicious code.

4. Hackers are now attacking home and business routers more than ever before. Because most people setup their router and forget it. They leave their routers open to hackers on the internet who will run pings to discover new routers. Consumers and business owners most of the time never go back and update the firmware, change default password, turn off access from WAN or turn off open ports. These are ways hackers use to gain access to your system to steal personal information.

3.Click-Jacking Attacks are also called UI Re-direct attacks. This when after a hacker has gain access to your computer and setup a proxy that send you to a website that you had no intention of going to. Most of the time this will cause your computer to process task extremely slow.

2. Bait and switch. Bait and switch hacking involves running malicious content though the user believes he is running something standard. Hackers create “free” content that can be downloaded and used by anyone. But later replaces the link that the victim looked at originally with a malicious link.

1. Software exploit is when a smart device firmware become out of date and exploit was found, but that firmware was never updated. Hackers can use this exploit to gain access to your system. This can happen with routers, smart TV’s, computers or any smart devices that use any type of firmware.
