Hacks the System

Hackers have a motive and that is the reason why they indulge in hacking systems. The reason can be personal or entirely professional. You should avoid having a biased attitude towards hackers. Some hackers work in an ethical manner and save the company from frauds. They even find flaws and locate the loopholes in the system that can be repaired for the better functioning.

Hackers can hack the system and get the private files only by clicking the mouse button. Within a minute they can get the password of your system. Computers at home or at work place either protected with firewall or not can be hacked easily and firewall can’t do anything about packets coming so fast.

There are so many free hacking tools available on the internet that anyone can download easily and try to hack the system using those programs. Documentation to understand these files are also given with them. Scanning utilities and sniffing programs are very commonly used by hackers. One other tool used by hackers is Whisker. It is a tool used by system administrators to test the security of the system. Using this tool, hackers can find about the operating system running on the machine and whether the un-patched holes exists in it or not.

Security software programs are able to stop hackers alone. Administrator must avoid common mistakes done by him like not changing the password of operating system, not updating the software time to time, etc. So these common mistakes must be avoided by the administrator to protect his system from hackers. Hackers find different ways to hack the system so you must be very careful for your system and websites.
