5 Ways to Protect Your Computer From Hackers

 Currently, there are lots of people who have been hacked and have had their personal data taken by irresponsible people. Most of them, hacked very easily by hackers. Therefore we must know how to protect computers from hacker attacks.

Many people still think of hackers as bad people who gain unauthorized access to computer systems to steal or destroy data. But hackers are generally people who are out having fun on the Internet, while a cracker “is someone who is mentally challenged, who has probably been locked up in the room with the computer for too long,” says Doug Goddard.

The President of Client Server Factory said that.” Hackers are more for 'get it', done for fun and challenge while crackers are people who try to destroy things.” Hackers often end up going legitimate, establishing thriving security consultancies and catching their old hacker friends. The following are the types of hacker attacks that are often used.

Types of Hacker Attacks

Internet security vendor Velocet Security lists the main types of hacker attacks:

Trojan Horses

These are programs that contain hidden malicious code, and are often used to steal passwords. Computer login programs were replaced with ones that copied the passwords used by the computer owners. This information can then be used fraudulently.

Email Fraud

Counterfeiting and Anonymity. E-mail is a great way to communicate over the Internet, but it lends itself well to anonymity. Many online scams rely on fake e-mails.

Virus/Malicious Code

The best known form of malicious code is a computer virus, a code fragment that attaches to a disk's boot sector or to an executable file on a disk. Each time a boot sector or hosts file was loaded into memory and executed, the virus was activated, spreading from computer to computer via floppy disks and computer networks.

Some of these viruses reformat hard drives, destroying all their files. Others are just distractions, printing messages or pictures, playing music, or causing jams that slow down the computer.


In 1988, a graduate student at Cornell University launched one of the most famous hacker worms. These are active programs designed to spread through computer networks, often causing enormous damage. The 1988 internet worm eventually infiltrated thousands of networked computers, completely crippling them.


There are many types of bombs. “Logic bombs” is malicious code that “explodes” in response to some event. The “time bomb” just exploded at a certain time. Viruses can act like a ticking time bomb, lurking in cyberdark until they have a chance to spread and "explode" suddenly.


This is usually done through email, advertising, or through a site that looks similar to the site you've used. For example, you might get an email that looks like it's from your bank asking you to confirm your bank account number.

Protection Measures

In general, the steps for protecting your computer from hackers are as follows:

Firewalls & Antivirus

The most popular solution to business security problems, says Velocet, is a firewall, a computer that protects a company's internal network from the typical Internet. They also enable the establishment of security domains within corporate networks. And you can also add Anti Virus applications to strengthen the defense of a Computer.


Encryption schemes encrypt files or programs, protecting them during local storage or transmission via FTP or other electronic transfer methods. An example is HTTPS, a protocol that allows cyber shoppers to click “secure submit” buttons on shopping sites to encrypt their order forms and secure their credit card details. Encryption can be used to facilitate all aspects of security.

Email Security

E-mail is increasingly being protected, using technologies such as encryption, digital signatures, and anonymous delivery services.

Use a Strong Password And PIN

Effective against low-level nuisance hacks. It limits access and identifies individuals online. There is a product on the market, a token authentication system, that will generate a new PIN almost every minute so there is no chance that the code can be stolen and used.

Be Careful Of A Link

Often get a message that sends a link whose domain name is unclear and dangerous. And try if you download a file, make sure the download link is from the official site. So make sure you don't just click on unknown links.
