MY NEW FABULOUS TEKKIE
The Truth about HACKERS. They are thieves, born and bred.
Oh goodie, that Tekkie totally got rid of my
pop up ads, malware, bloat ware! Lucky ME!
It's the jobless recession, babe. Half of us are starving, in debt, huge car payments, insurance, rents, food costly. A lot of men (and maybe women) with superior computer skills will get itinerant jobs as PC fixers but only to get hold of your passwords, hard drives, bank account numbers, paypal accounts and such. No better PC fixer exists. Except for the FIX they will get YOU into!
HOW TO TELL A HACKER #1 - At the front door, as you greet him, his eyes reek guilt. Stare straight at him with a relaxed,grateful smile. There is no response. Deadness. Sadness and shame are in the face. He senses you saw it, so he will make some move as stillness makes him uneasy.HOW TO TELL A HACKER #2
His fingers fly as he works on your PC. His keyring has l0 USB's. (thumb drives) Feel free to ask him how each is different. What programs are in them. Turn your back he fits one in slot, hits download and he OWNS your computer!HOW TO TELL A HACKER #3
After they leave your house, open the "MY COMPUTER" icon. See how your C DRIVE has HALF the free space it had an hour earlier. Or say, for the last YEAR! They stuck some key watcher program in it. Change your passwords everywhere immediately. And don't use that PC for banking, ever again, or at PAYPAL. Plan on getting a new one with WIN l0, pre-advertised as being BACK TO THE GOOD WAY. Use that one.OTHER ADVICE. Never pull out that card with all your passwords written in plain english. CRAIGS LIST --MYMOM10 and PAYPAL --DADDSGIRL7 and BANK OF AMERICA - VILLAGELIVES10
Could you memorize that in l0 seconds?
He can sight memorize and you never see a pen move! And after all, his fingers flying on his laptop? Maybe that data he's moving seemingly TO YOU isn't for YOU at all!
So the biggest danger is YOUR HIRING a man to come into your home and not watching every move he makes. Some professional repair men hack if you look wealthy. So you go to his shop, he sees the MERCEDES or LEXUS, you leave your computer behind in his hands for a week. HE WILL definitely look around for passwords to PAYPAL or BANK OF AMERICA and if you are not password protected, extract a few, key passwords.
So what to do? Don't leave a PC in anybody's hands. Find a college kid who'll come to your home, bottom dollar cost and watch him every second. LEARN about their tricks by googling the subject.
