Today, I am going to battle-test four antivirus programs: a British one, a Chinese one (featuring an original engine), a Finnish one, and an exciting Czech project at the beta-version stage. All of them are free and offer extra protection features aside from the basic system scan. Let’s pit the new antiviruses against hordes of trojans and worms I prepared for them!
The best way to check the network’s security is by trying to hack it. In the past, HackMag had published materials about auditing Wi-Fi networks. Unfortunately, such guides quickly become obsolete. Today, I will share some practical and up-to-date experience in this area.
Remote access to Web cameras and security cameras is a common hacking technique. It does not require any special software or even special skills. All you need is a Web browser and a few simple manipulations. In other words, you may gain access to thousands of electronic eyes around the world if you know how to find their IP addresses and exploit their vulnerabilities.
The phrase “hacking utilities” has gradually come to acquire a negative meaning. Antivirus software teams curse them out, and users look down on them, placing them on a par with potential threats. But one can perform an audit and other relatively significant tasks simply from the browser, if it is prepared properly. In this article we take a look at the respective add-ons to Chrome, but one can find similar additions for Firefox as well.
Often, the manufacturers of routers do not particularly care about the quality of their code. As a result, the vulnerabilities are not uncommon. Today, the routers are a priority target of network attacks that allows to steal money and data while bypassing local protection systems. How can you personally check the quality of firmware and adequacy of settings? You can do this by using free utilities, online test services and this article.
