These are the types of viruses and message traps that hackers attempt to use to scam users into buying false antivirus software. Each type of these infectious malwares and programs by hackers are different and occur in various ways. Viruses and hacking have a major impact on two main topics discussed in Computer Information Technology 110 (CIT 110). The topics are data security and operating systems. Through the infection of computer viruses and hacking, the computer’s operating system can malfunction and data’s security becomes vulnerable to loss or theft by hackers.
By this way a hacker could find the unprotected ways to your valuable data and fix them against a possible unauthorized access try to your data. For instance, Kevin MITNICK is a hacker who seeks for the weaknesse... ... middle of paper ... ... their privacy while surfing on web. Thus, people are afraid from hackers.

A Trojan horse is a program that may see and legit software or files but once the program is executed, the damage comes into effect. The damage goes from being small, spamming programs into your computer and can go up to stealing computer data or even destroying and eliminating all information from computer. Through Trojans, computer hackers are able to hack into some one’s unit and remote control the computer. It all takes a simple click, from either you or the hacker to infect the computer.
According to Armor2net, these programs can allow intruders easy access to a computer without the user's knowledge, change the system configurations, or infect the computer with a computer virus. These back door or remote administration programs are also known as social engineering. In fact, hackers usually use BackOrifice, Netbus, and SubSeven to gain remote access to users' computers. Once installed, these programs will allow them to access and control the computers. Denial of Service (DoS) is another technique that hackers frequently use.
This program simply makes the virus of beholders choice. It can make viruses that simply put a constant beep in you computer speakers or it can be disastrous and ruin your computers hard-drive. Hackers also go onto chat rooms and cause trouble. Chat rooms are simply a service given by internet providers to allow people all over the world to talk. As I was saying, Hackers go into these rooms and basically try to take over because in chat rooms there is one person in control.
black hat hackers hack the system without authorization and destroy files or steal data for their purposes. black hat hackers will destroy secure network which is unusable access to user as a result authorize will get a downtime access of network. Black hat hackers majorly damage computer users and large organizations by exploiting sensitive data, shutdown of servers and modifying data in websites and network. Significance: Black hat hackers are very clever programmers but they violate computer security rules because of gaining access to other computer without authorize. Beliefs: Black hat hackers having profound knowledge of internet and network security but they do things in negative way means illegal accessing of network or security.
An intentional breach to digital security often involves a deliberate act that is against the law.1 Cybercrime refers to online or Internet-based illegal acts such as distributing malicious software or committing identity theft. Perpetrators of cybercrime typically fall into one of these categories: hacker, cracker, script kiddie, corporate spy, unethical employee, cyberextortionist, and cyberterrorist. The term hacker refers to someone who accesses a computer or network illegally. Some hackers claim the intent of their security breaches is to improve security. A cracker also is someone who accesses a computer or network illegally but has the intent of destroying data, stealing information, or other malicious action.
Hackers are the robbers of cyberspace. They are able to gain access to peoples computers using special tools, methods and programs. Some of these are backdoors, viruses, and port scanners. The most popular form of virus, is known as the Trojan horse, named after the Greek Trojan Horse. This virus is implanted in a computer, then it lets someone from another computer have access to all the computers information, including passwords and any other personal data that might be present.
These are all caused by viruses, particularly the “Malware” type of viruses. These type of viruses are created by hackers to steal the computer user’s website or corporate credentials and other sensitive information like credit card number, passwords, etc and personal information like private chats and photos, accessing your webcam live feed, etc. These viruses often avoid detection from antiviruses by blending into legitimate windows processes and programs. They can be removed using malware remover tools or manually by experienced computer analysts. They can be avoided altogether by scanning email attachments before downloading them, avoi... ... middle of paper ... ...knesses from the own OS manufacturers as a result of bad programming or coding mistakes.
If someone was on bad terms with a business or website, anything, the person doing the crime would take over or destroy their website. Currently in todays world, cyber crime criminals want to use your computer for illegal activity, to steal your profit. Cybercriminals utilize many websites to develop “crimeware”, like viruses, trojans, and keyloggers, so other criminals can pick up on their own wicked ways. Most of the crimeware doesn’t act as a command, but as a data supplier. A data supplier can steal private information from anyones computer, which then can be used and seen by any cybercriminal.
