One of my friend's Wordpress blog has been deleted recently by some cyber guy. My friend always used the same cyber. Recently this cyber had a new employee. The two of them had a little quarrel n it seems this new employ used keyloggers at the cyber to get the passwords... and has now he has deleted the blog. Some other cybers are having keyloggers installed too.
"Keylogger is a software program or hardware device that is used to monitor and log each of the keys a user types into a computer keyboard" - actualspy
For all guys who are using cybers I'll give a tip to protect yourselves
Let’s say your password "welcome"
- Click the password box, type some random keys. Select the entered random key with the mouse and type W. So u have entered the first letter of the password.
- Click the password box, type arnd 3 random keys. Select these 3 letters with your mouse and type the next valid key of your password.
Continue in a similar way to finish typing the password. You can choose any number of random characters between your password.
So the keylogger will log something like:
Note you can use unwanted mouse clicks so that a mouse click is recorded before the random letters. You can also experiment entering the password in the reverse order, infact any order.
This method can be used for entering the username too....
Hope cybers will stop this bad trend...
