Some people that are shopping in the internet or using their credit cards to verify teir identity on the ney or something else get their credit card numbers stolen and then all the money on their bank account "is gone with the wind", but even after they go to their bank and the bank refund their money,they will be still asking how did my money go like that.
So in this blog post I decided to share with you how did your money diseappear and how to protect yourself for each way of hijacking.
The most popular: THE pishing
This is how the pishing works,the hacker sends you an email similar to the emails that your bank sends saying that your account has to be verified or it has been hijacked...So,it contains a link that you click on after reading the scary message and that redirects you to a fake page that looks like your bank website so you enter your information thinking that you are giving your info to your bank.
How to prevent?
There is two ways:
1- the easiest is to click on the link and check it on the adress bar if it is really your bank website
2-the advanced way is to check the smtp server that the email is coming from.
TRojans: the most dangerous viruses
So it consists that the hacker who send you this message see all what you do,record all your keystrokes and of course he takes all the valuable informations.To avoid it,I'll recommend using antiviruses and don't trust anybody giving you a file to click on or use a usb key that has been used on a lot of computers.
When you shopping website gets hacked
So I think that you probably heard about sony,sony was hacked by a group of korean hackers,so what you have to know is every system is hackable no exceptions,what I want to say is even if your shopping at amazon or ebay,your info could be,one day,revealed,so I'll recommend that you don't even think at leaving you credit card info recorded at even the most popular shopping websites.
