Today, passwords play a significant role in human life. Everywhere on the Internet, on every site, each account must have its own password in order for the user to gain access to its data. Losing or breaking a password can often result in a big problem and headache.
This article will focus on passwords, hacking methods and creating passwords.
How do passwords break?
There are always at least two ways to crack a password. This is a banal selection (which takes a huge amount of resources and time, but with proper luck, or rather, with due naivety of the user, it will not take an hour) and no less banal “attack of pets”.
Recognize after all somewhere, at least once you set the banal and well-known qwerty password. This is certainly good if it is not in your mailbox through which you can crack almost all your existing passwords. Password guessing is a set of random numbers in the password field and it implies the need to know the account itself. On some sites this is obvious, on others it’s hidden. Continue reading
There are a huge number of computer viruses in the world. To establish their exact number (along with all modifications and upgrades) no one is taken. Instead, it is customary to calculate the loss or intensity of a virus attack. But, neither one nor the other allows users to understand what, exactly, how and why it gets to their computer?
Reasons for creating viruses
There are no reasons for the appearance of viruses as such. These are the reasons for human stupidity. We simply have the actual value – a huge number of computer viruses and virus programs that inhabit the Internet along with sites. It’s true that it’s worth highlighting several reasons, it’s still worth it, they are especially clear to any person.
Banal reason. Someone wanted to try “what happens if?” True, almost no one is now engaged in viral childishness. However, it is impossible not to mention it. Indeed, this is how the first virus arose. Continue reading
This protocol allows you to implement a secure point-to-point connection by creating a tunnel in an insecure network.
The work of PPTP is to implement PPP frames in IP packets for transferring them to any IP network, including the Internet. In addition, this technology can be used to create a tunnel between local networks.
A TCP connection is used to service the created PPTP tunnel.
The protocol specification was published in 1999 in RFC2637, but the IETF community has not ratified it.
Less secure than IPSec, PPTP establishes a PPP session using the GRE protocol. The 1723 TCP port is used to control and initiate the GRE connection. Redirecting PPTP to the firewall is difficult because the protocol requires two sessions to be established simultaneously. Continue reading
Regional content protection checks your account for belonging to a specific country, and checks it against the IP address of your console. If your account is American, and the IP address belongs to any other country, then you won’t be able to download content intended only for USA. We will describe the options for solving this problem using a VPN below.
Using a router
One of the options, which may also be the simplest, is to set up a VPN on the router and give them Wi-Fi to the XBOX. But we want to immediately warn that with some routers it may not work. Although it’s worth a try.
If in the settings of the router the section with VPN is not occupied by your provider, then just enter the settings of our VPN there. Continue reading
Today, many who are interested in computer technology and communications have heard about such a popular technology as VPN. However, most of the articles describe subtle nuances of technology that are often not understood by less experienced network users. This article will help you understand the basics of VPN technology. We tried to state everything in the simplest language and include at least technical terms in the text.
The acronym VPN stands for Virtual Private Network (Virtual Prvate Network). This technology is designed to organize an internal network within another network with reliable protection of the transfer of all data between users. Typically, the core network for a VPN is the Internet.
In order to imagine the meaning of technology, it is enough to take as a basis any company that has a head office and several branches in different parts of the city or even in different regions of the country. Each branch has its own local area network for data exchange. At the same time, data transfer between branches is carried out through publicly and insecure channels. Continue reading
