Network Eavesdropping (network sniffing) is a network layer attack which is able to capture packets from the network transmitted by others’ computers and reading the data content in search of sensitive information like passwords, session tokens, or any kind of confidential information.
This attack could be done using many tools called network sniffers. These tools collect packets from the network and , depending on the quality of the tool, analyze the collected data like protocol decoders or stream reassembling.
Thats not all about this technology , It just a summary . I’ll provide the complete description soon . Hope you like this post .
Hello everyone , I have resested my Website due to some technical issues and try to make it working soon . So here’s my new post which guide you to strengthen the weakest point of any security solution on this planet . No matter how much effective—or expensive—the security tools for protecting your network are, there’s no way to predict the damage caused by any careless user. The war against every cyber criminals is fought each time a user decides to click an unfamiliar link or open an attachment thats a only single mistake could be the reason for massive data loss .
If you take security seriously, you’re already using Umbrella to protect your network from malware, botnets, and other advanced threats. And if you’re smart, you know that there’s no substitute for educating yourself and others .
Follow below Interesting facts which can make you secure against any threats and cyber crime activity :
- Always remember and Realize that you are an attractive target to hackers. Don’t ever say “It won’t happen to me.” . As anything can happened at any moment of time .
- Prefer for good password management . Use a strong combination of characters, and don’t use the same password for multiple sites. Don’t share your password with others at any moment of time , don’t write it down, and definitely don’t write it on a post-it note attached to your monitor.
- Never leave your devices unattended. If you need to leave your computer, phone, or tablet for any length of time—no matter how short—lock it up so no one can use it while you’re gone. If you keep sensitive information on a flash drive or external hard drive, make sure to lock it up as well.
- Always be careful while clicking on attachments or links in email . If it’s unexpected or suspicious for any reason, don’t click on it. Double check the URL of the website the link takes you to: bad actors will often take advantage of spelling mistakes to direct you to a harmful domain.
- Sensitive browsing, such as banking or shopping, should only be done on a device that belongs to you using Internet Explorer only and on a network that you trust. Whether it’s a friend’s phone, a public computer, or a cafe’s free WiFi—your data could be copied or stolen.
- Back up your data regularly, and make sure your anti-virus software is always up to date.
- Be conscientious of what you plug in to your computer. Malware can be spread through infected flash drives, external hard drives, and even smartphones.
- Watch what you’re sharing on social networks. Criminals can befriend you and easily gain access to shocking amount of information—where you go to school, where you work, when you’re on vacation—that could help them gain access to more valuable data.
- Offline, be wary of social engineering, where someone attempts to gain information from you through manipulation. If someone calls or emails you asking for sensitive information, it’s okay to say no. You can always call the company directly to verify credentials before giving out any information.
- Be sure to monitor your accounts for any suspicious activity. If you see something unfamiliar, it could be a sign that you’ve been compromised.
Thats not at all be the end boundaries of Security its just a few key features to make everyone aware about it .
