How To Stop Wi-Fi Stealing And Catch That Person

March 29, 2016

Wifi stealing is the common problem we face in our everyday life. It even happens without our knowledge. However the control is in our hand and we can stop wifi stealing using the admin panel of our wifi router.

ften we are unable to locate an uninvited user who uses our Wi-Fi. If someone uses our wifi without our knowledge, that would be termed as wifi stealing.
Whatever be the case, to be on the safer side, we must know who is using my Wi-Fi without my permission and how can we stop them. So, here are the steps on –

How To Stop Wifi Stealing And Catch That Person:

Login to your router.

Different routers support different login styles. So, I am listing a few of the logging in style, out of these, one might work for you:
  • Punch in the IP address of your router in your browser address bar directly like 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
  • If the above address does not work, you can also try routerlogin.com and it will redirect to your router admin panel.
  • Enter the administrator username and password.
  • Once you are inside the admin panel, look for menu options like ‘Connected devices’ or ‘Attached devices’.
  • If you are able to find that menu, you can see the MAC Address, IP Address and Device name of all the devices which are connected to your network. This is how my Attached devices looks like.
  • If you see some extra person’s name or some extra device then they are the one who might be using your wifi without your permission. Read on to know the steps to stop wifi stealing.

How to stop someone from wifi stealing?

Once you come to a conclusion that someone else is making use of your Wi-Fi resources, you can simply change the password of your Wi-Fi to a stronger password. You can also switch off your SSID broadcast.

If you want a stricter action, you can set up a filter based on the MAC address of the devices.

10 steps to learn hacking and cybersecurity with ease

March 26, 2016
10 steps to learn hacking and cybersecurity with ease

Want to learn hacking and cybersecurity? Follow these 10 steps to kickstart on your hacking career

Hacking! The term has glamourous connotation for some while others view hackers with contempt. Hacking was mainly used in the “good old days” for getting information about systems and IT in general. Over the years it has got a negative connotation due to few hackers who are also cyber criminals.
If you leave aside the cyber crime part, hacking is a very respectable field with top dollar being paid to top grade ethical hackers. Most of the tech companies hire hackers to test the strengths and weaknesses of their own system and software. These hackers know when to stop, and the positive trust they build earns them a large salary.
If you are ready to jump in and learn the art, below are a few tips that will help you get started!

Question yourself: Why do I want to learn?

Hacking does not mean interrupting a website or breaking into someone’s email accounts. While cracking is malicious, hacking is about how to usefully deploy systems and involve in a specific style of programming.
Nowadays, hacking is normally used to include data breaches, system cracks and malicious attacks, but you need to ask yourself — is it really worth the risk? If you are truly interested in programming and systems, then ethical hacking could prove to be a lucrative career choice — for the right reasons.

What is hacking?

Hacking is much more than using software to brute-force a password, or hiring a botnet to launch DDoS attacks against a website for the fun of it or cracking your media streaming kit to download shows for free. It is about solving problems and finding answers, whether in the IT field or otherwise.

Why hacking?

As said above, hacking is a romanticised term for many. This is due to movies where the protagonist can crack anything from White House servers to ISS spacestation by punching in a few keys. There are some who view hackers with contempt but top hackers generally evoke respect among the online fraternity. Moneywise, hacking offers many career options that include a range of software issues from exploit development to network defence. However, hacking is about finding the answers to your own questions and the hunger to put in very long hours to find that evasive bug in the code.

Research

While there is no set guidelines to learn hacking and cybersecurity, but to start off with you can learn more on different programming languages, job opportunities, skills, and join hacking and cybersecurity community groups.
Before you commit yourself, there are lot of questions you may want to ask yourself and also learn a few terms such as are you interested in networking, or penetration testing, or the security of mobile applications, or bug bounties? You will be able to follow your passion, if you have a common idea of where your own interests lie.

Choosing the correct programming language

You shouldn’t limit yourself to any particular language. But you need to learn the programming language before you start prodding around. The important factor here is interest. If you become bored, you are likely to become irritated and give up your efforts. Be it any programming language such as Python, C++, Perl or any other language, the important thing is know the basics that also gives an idea of operating systems such as Windows and Unix, as well as networking. This will help in fundamental understanding to bind everything together at a later stage.

Getting the right tools

What operating system are you using, and why? Research different tools and systems normally used by those in cybersecurity while you are learning programming or working on a project. For instance, the open-source Linux build Kali is a popular option — as it comes pre-loaded with hundreds of tools for use in the ethical hacking field.
You can run this along with other systems, such as Windows or Mac. However, using a virtual machine to run Kali on Mac can lead to problems due to Apple’s code and permissions, such as an inability to use the internal wireless adapter. It is recommended to use this situation only as a way to learn Kali and workarounds methodically.
Kali also has a Android version and since Android is ruling the landscape, it would do you a host of good if you concentrate your bug finding venture on smartphones.

Be a part of a project or sign up for a course

Most youngsters want to take up hacking but dont know where to start. As said above, most of them think hacking happens at a click of fingers but it is not so. You have to put in lot of hours to get your hacking targets right. Websites such as Coursera and Udemy are a good place to learn these basic skills, you can also sign up for a course for the same. Depending on how to learn best, taking a step-by-step course with tutorials could be the way forward, or otherwise, find a project.
Hacking, patches, improvement, and mods are all interweaved through understanding a programming language or an operating system. So take up something that interests you whether it is streamlining and creating a program, or creating a gaming mod, or fixing a security issue, or joining community competitions offered by groups such as Hackthissite.org.

Hacking, Learn what to avoid!

One of the keys in hacking is to draw a thick dark red line in what you can to and what you wont do. Once you have learned some newly-acquired skills and rearing to show it off, you may want to slow down. Avoid getting tangled with authorities at any cost. Learn about your own country’s rules on ethical hacking and cybersecurity so that you do not overlook the illegal elements in your activities. For instance, slipping into a corporate network without consent is not legal.
Also some companies may not like you looking at their code while many have specific terms and conditions on how you should go about bug finding in their codes. Almost all tech companies fret at hackers going public with their vulnerabilities without informing them and you may not like to make a big tech company your enemy. Maybe, it will offer you a job with a big fat paycheck.  So, it’s better to be safe than never!

Specialise

Hacking is about choosing the right path and you need to specialise. You cant go about hunting for desktop vulnerabilities one day and switch on to finding Android vulnerabilities on the nex. If you really want to become a specialist, then do not limit yourself to just learning a programming language. There are a huge range of topics and subjects that you should research and learn about, including learning about the essential fundamentals.
Learning about hacking history, the Metasploit framework, online security and privacy, social engineering, Shell, and databases are only some of the areas you should explore.

Be a part of bug lovers community

Sharing helps and in hacking, sharing is often the key to success. The open-source community always welcomes people who have a good knowledge of computers, operating systems and programming and love to solve problems and think creatively. A great place to start is GitHub, which is not a wonderful way to meet other hackers, developers and both professionals and enthusiasts but also is a good way to polish your skills and have a hand in enhancing coding and streamlining.

Choosing it as a career

The decision is left to you. You can hack purely for the love of it and hopefully contribute to software development or projects for the good of all and research, or you could go down a path that may land you with fines and jail. After following this road, if ethical hacking is still something that you want to follow, then your skills are in definitely in hot demand that you get a fun job to enjoy along with a decent paycheck.
Remember hacking pays well but stick to being on the right side of the law at all times.

How to Download Torrents Online Using IDM? 4 Working Ways for You!

March 25, 2016
Download Torrents Online Using IDM

So, you are in college or in a firm where you operate behind a proxy server. The company and colleges have placed many restrictions on many sites and you can not download torrent files . I was going through the same problem when I entered into my college. In my first year, I made use of the following sites. I used to download almost all of my stuff through torrents, simply because they are easy to find and quick to download. Now I use Tor but sometimes I still make use of these sites. So, I would like to  share with you some of the methods to download torrents online.
BoxoPus

What is Boxopus?
Boxopus is a service which downloads your torrents without any software and stores it in the cloud. Also, Boxopus is a nice monster that you see in the logo.
How does Boxopus work?
Simple. You point Boxopus what torrent you want to download. After Boxopus downloads the files it will notify you by email and you can get it from here.
How much does the service cost?

The basic account is absolutely free. You can download a torrent file up to 512 MB in size with unlimited speed with a free account.  Also, you can get much more with PRO account (more traffic, more features, more anonymity, higher speed).


2. ByteBX
ByteBX

ByteBX is a cloud storage service which lets you store files from the computer and also upload torrent files in its server. You can download the particular torrent after it is uploaded in its server. It has a free account which lets you store torrent files up to 2.5 GB. But the download speed comes with a limitation of 200KB/s.
BT Could

BTCloud is a cloud storage integrated with the global BitTorrent network. It comes with a free account which lets you upload 1 GB of torrent files and the download speed is unlimited.

 4. ZbigZ
 ZbigZ  used to provide unlimited download speed  two year back, but it has changed its speed restrictions to 150 KB/s. The main advantage of this site over others is you don’t need to sign up to download if you want to download for free. Two years back there was a hack which lets you download torrent using its premium account. I don’t know if it works now, and you can search it online. I would write an article on it if somebody ask for it.  So leave a comment below.

Conclusion –  My favorite has always been Boxopus simply because it provides unlimited download speed. Although there is a size restriction but I mainly used it for downloading torrent low in size. I don’t have to leave my browser for downloading any torrent.  Simply add a magnetic link and wait for the torrent to upload. Surf the internet till it is uploaded. Download it and enjoy. Simple.

10 Best Android N Features: Which New Android Feature Suits You?

March 15, 2016
Android N features are said to be creating the biggest change in recent Android history. Google has also hinted that Android 7.0 could also be finally named Android Nutella. While some say Android N features have been motivated by the iOS 9.0 features, others call it Windows 10-inspired as well. Well, taking a sneak preview from Android N Developer Preview, we will dig deeper into it and find out the truth.


Android N is the next iteration of Android that will be coming with the most sought-after features. Though Android N is still under development, however, we can still anticipate some of the best Android N feature taking at a sneak preview at the Android N Developer’s previewrecently released by Google.
Some are terming the upcoming new Android N features as a follow-up of thebest iOS 9.0 features. Well, we will take a quick look at those and we will also see how Android N’s upcoming features vary from iOS features as well. So, here are some of the new Android N features:

1. Multi-Windows Support: The Best Android N features

Android N is going to introduce the much-requested multitasking feature into the platform — multi-window support. Multi-windows support might mimic split-screen view of iOS 9.0. Using Multi-Windows support,

  • A user can run two apps side-by-side on phones and tablets running Android N. In the war of superiority in Android N vs iOS 9.0, this new and the best Android feature, outruns iOS 9.0.
  • While Apple restricts using two different apps to a fixed screen size like one-third (in split view mode) and one-half (in Split-screen mode), Android N, on the other hand, lets users resize the apps by dragging the divider between them.
  • On top of that, on Android TV devices, different apps can be put themselves in picture-in-picture mode, allowing them to continue showing content while the user browses or interacts with other apps.
Multi-Windows Support: The Best Android N features

On devices with a larger screen, especially on tablets and other larger-screen devices, multi-window support gives users a freedom of multi-tasking.
An Android N user can even enable drag-and-drop in his apps.
When we talk more about iOS 9.0 vs Android N, iOS 9.0 does not give you a virtual freedom to configure split-screen view on all the apps whereas Android N lets you configure your app as how it handles multi-window display.
For example, in Multi-Windows support in Android N, you can specify your activity’s minimum allowable dimensions. This prevents users from resizing the activity below that size. Even you can also disable multi-window display for your app, which ensures that the system will only show your app in full-screen mode.

2. Notification Enhancements: The Smart Android N features

By swiping and dragging down the notification alerts in Android, we often built an urge to reply then and there instead of tapping and going to an app like a WhatsApp chat notification. And this time, Google has come cleaner on this with Notification Enhancements.
Notification Enhancements: The Smart Android N features

Avatar and Images: In the notifications enhancement, Google has integrated avatar and Images so that you can see who has sent you an email or a chat message.
Bundled Notifications: Just like tagging in Gmail, you can also bundle your chats and messages based on a tag or a topic. The bundled notifications feature of Android N lets you archive the entire mail or chat in one go as you can see in the image above.
Direct reply: Now you do not need to tap in the notification alert and go to the app to reply a chat, you can directly reply a mail or a chat from the notification window itself.
Custom views:  The custom views in Android N lets you decorate your notification style in your own way.

3. Quick Settings: The handy Android N features

Quick Settings lets you define your key settings and actions directly from the notification shade. This new Android N feature has enhanced the scope of Quick Settings to make it even more useful and convenient
3. Quick Settings: The handy Android N features


Pagination: Google has paginated the Quick Settings tiles which can be accessed by swiping left or right. Even Google has given freedom to add or move tiles just by dragging and dropping them.
From the developers’ point of view, Quick Settings can be used by developers to add tiles for the apps that are either urgently required or frequently used.

4. Data Saver: A Hybrid Child of iOS Background App Refresh and Windows 10 Metered connection

Google has wisely made use of iOS background app refresh and Microsoft Windows 10 metered connection to restrict the data usage by the Android apps in the background as well as the foreground.

Data Saver: A Hybrid Child of iOS Background App Refresh and Windows 10 Metered connection

Android N Data saver feature takes cues from iOS background App refresh in terms of the Android apps in the background restricting the background data usage by the apps in the background.
On the other hand, Android N takes cues from Windows 10 metered connection to restrict data usage by the Android apps in the foreground by limiting bit rate for streaming, reducing image quality, deferring optimistic pre-caching, and so on.
It should be noted that most of the battery are consumed by the cellular data plan and battery consumption increases when we are on roaming. So, in the settings, a user can turn on Data saver to save battery life on Android.
Apart from this best Android N features, there are other significant feature enhancements on Android N. Keep on reading for them.

4. Localization of Android

Just like Ubuntu or free open source operating systems, Android will also support language localization. You can directly relate localization with old Nokia basic mobile phones which supported a lot of local languages. Localization in Android will surely enhance the bilingual experience of the mobile users.

5. Android TV recording in Android N

Android N adds the ability to record and playback content from Android TV. This features can be used via new recording APIs.

6. Android Accessibility enhancements:

Well, if you do not know, then you should know that some of the apps which have visual and audial interactions with the mobile users who are visually impaired or deaf, must comply with certain rules. Developers have a hard time complying with such rules.

With Android N new features, a user will be offered Vision Settings directly on the welcome screen for new device setup. This makes it much easier for users to configure accessibility features like magnification gesture, font size, display size, and TalkBack.

7. Call screening feature in Android N

Android N allows the default phone app to screen incoming calls. Some the call screening features are:

Reject the incoming call
Do not allow the call to the call log
Do not show the user a notification for the call

8. Number blocking

On the other hand, Number blocking features are:

Numbers blocked on calls are also blocked on texts
Blocked numbers can persist across resets and devices through the Backup & Restore feature
Multiple apps can use the same blocked numbers list

9. Key attestation in Android N

Hardware-backed key stores provide a much safer method to create, store, and use cryptographic keys on Android devices. They protect keys from the Linux kernel, potential Android vulnerabilities, and extraction from rooted devices.

10. Network Security Config

Android N gives you the freedom to customize the behavior of their secure (HTTPS, TLS) connections safely, without any code modification. On the development side, this Android N feature is going to support the developers a lot especially in the VOIP, SIP, RTP/RTCP setups.

Some of the supported features of Network Security Config are:

Custom trust anchors. Lets an application customize which Certificate Authorities (CA) are trusted for its secure connections. For example, trusting particular self-signed certificates or a restricted set of public CAs.
Debug-only overrides. Lets an application developer safely debug secure connections of their application without added risk to the installed base.
Cleartext traffic opt-out. Lets an application protect itself from an accidental usage of cleartext traffic.
Certificate pinning. An advanced feature that lets an application limit which server keys are trusted for secure connections.
While Google hasn’t revealed the final name of Android N, Google has hinted that it could be Android Nutella. If you are betting on some other name like Android Nougat or Android Naankhatai, do tell us in the comments below.

Why Android N is Going to Be the Biggest Change in Android’s History.

March 15, 2016
android n nutella


While Google is slowly rolling out the Android Marshmallow 6.0 update, the company has announced that the next Android version will result in the merger of Chrome OS and Android. With a bigger picture in mind, and a new Android name, Google’s upcoming Android N could be its biggest change in Android till date

urning a successful service enterprise into a product company is a feat that is difficult to achieve. Microsoft has been trying hard to accomplish it and Google is moving fast on the same track from past many years.
With Alphabet restructuring, Google is focusing more on making its operations more effective. Android is one of the biggest products of Google. And understanding the growing dominance of mobile, Google is moving ahead to combine its desktop-focused Chrome OS and the Android mobile OS.
As the media reports suggest, this convergence of Chrome OS and Android was in talks from some time and Android emerged as the obvious winner. If we compare the both, Chrome OS is less flexible and more secure. Chrome OS has found its application in the education sector due to its focus on schools.
With Android Marshmallow, Google has made progress on the security front with mandatory encryption and secure boot. With the upcoming Android N, to be announced at Google I/O, we can expect Google to make a move towards more laptop-type bigger screen devices powered by an advanced Android OS.
Last month, Google announced its Pixel C tablet taking inspiration fromMicrosoft’s Surface Pro and Apple’s iPad Pro. Deciding which OS would be suitable to run the larger screen touch devices, Microsoft invented an OS that switches smoothly between tiles and desktop mode.
With the decision to kill the Chrome OS and fold its best features in the upcoming Android Nutella (Sorry! Unable to resist, I predict this name for Android N), Google is following the footsteps of Microsoft. Talking about the name predictions, Android Nougat is another strong contender.
While Android Marshmallow focused on tightening the security hinges and making Android a corporate-suitable product, Android N will be a major change. Earlier this year, Google announced that the newer versions of Android will befree from unnecessary bloatware and Android N will the perfect platform to begin with.
Compared to Android Marshmallow, expect some bigger feature additions coming with Android N. While Marshmallow featured changes on the security and enterprise front, Android N will bring one of the biggest changes ever in Android OS.
In the past, Google has Android-running bigger screen devices, but Android just didn’t feel right. This move to merge the Chrome OS and Android OS in Android N is Sundar Pichai’s attempt to make an OS that can run on all form factors. The Android operating system already runs on smartwatches, TV, tablets, phones – and adding the laptops in this list could be Android’s biggest step yet.

What are your expectations with Android N? Which name do you like better – Android Nutella or Android Nougat?

X-Ray Mod for Minecraft 1.9/1.8.9/1.8/1.7.10

March 14, 2016
Hunting down resources in caves, abandoned mineshafts and sunken, underground
fortresses is one of the more exciting parts of Minecraft. Who knows when that patch
of coal or iron you chop out of a wall will lead to a dungeon with mob spawners and
chests, or whether it will be a long drop to a fiery end in a pit of lava that waits for you
on the other side of that next wall? Well, now you can know with the XRay Mod 1.9,
which works a lot like any old XRay
resource pack you might find.
By turning specific blocks like dirt or stone invisible, the textures for these blocks will
simply disappear from your view. The blocks will still be there of course – you can’t see
them but they’re still there. With all of the filler made invisible, you can more easily find
your way to veins of coal, iron, gold, diamonds and other valuable resources buried
beneath the ground in Minecraft. If you want to play on Hardcore mode or go through
Survival without turning on cheats, the XRay Mod is probably the most powerful tool

around for helping you to quickly amass resources and get the goods you need.



Of course, actually using the XRay Mod will be considered cheating by many players.
Server owners don’t like the mod either, and there are specific plugins which watch
exclusively for people finding patches of ores and metals too frequently while playing
online. If you use this mod on a multiplayer server you should expect to get banned,
either automatically when the server security system detects you using bad mods, or a
little down the line when some moderator or owner notices you finding too many

valuable in too short a time. The bottom line is, don’t use this mod online.


If you’re playing alone though, why go through the bother of digging through stacks
and stacks of blocks of dirt, stone and other worthless materials to get what you
want? Nobody actually like the digging and mining parts of Minecraft; they love pulling
ores and gems out of the world though, and you need to do the first thing before you
can do the second thing in most cases. The XRay Mod features a config file which will
let you “erase” any blocks you like, so you can focus on just the resources you need or

want to find and forget everything else.

XRay Mod for Minecraft 1.8 Changelogs

Updated to Minecraft 1.8.9, removed cavefinder (will try to add it back).
Fixed the open to lan bug.
Blocks are being rendered in the game output.
Cleaned up installer code.

How to Install X-Ray Mod for Minecraft?

1. Download the official Xray installer.
2. Open the installer and click on “Install” button!

How Do Cyber Criminals Steal Your Money? And protect yourself from these Cyber Thieves

March 12, 2016
Today is the world where people worry less about getting mugged on street and more on the internet. With the cyber security scams popping out daily, it clearly indicates the route modern thieves have taken. Not at a gun point or knife, your money is now being stolen with utter subtlety, where you don’t even recognize the theft until it is done.

The security of even big commercial banks like J.P. Morgan and numerous financial institutions has been breached and millions of business and individual accounts have been compromised. It seems no armor can provide protection from these Cyber Attacks.

What are Cyber Attacks? Am I vulnerable to Cyber Attacks?


What are Cyber Attacks? Am I vulnerable to Cyber Attacks?


Cyber Attacks are the offensive gimmicks whose goal is to extract the personal or classified information from the targeted computer systems or networks. This information is later used to either steal or alter the specified data. On a larger scale, the attacks have the potential to become a threat to national security. These attacks could be made either by the individuals or a full-fledged organization.
“Everyone” is vulnerable to Cyber Attacks. Professional hackers target the users based on their level of affluence and the ease to enter into their systems. The targets include from individuals to large companies like finance and banking and even government owned organizations.

How are YOU attacked by these Cyber Criminals?


Stage I: Identity Theft


How are YOU attacked by these Cyber Criminals?

As suggestive as it is, Identity Theft means that your identity is stolen and anyone could now impersonate you. The thievery starts with an access to your e-mail id. Then you will receive a fraudulent or a ‘phishing’ email that would link you to a ‘phishing’ website. The site looks pretty convincing and genuine. Here you are asked about your personal information and even bank account and credit card details. Sometimes, a humble looking mail also contains malwarethat would spread into your computer and give more of your personal information such as login account, passwords and other important files to the hacker.
The more information the Cyber Thief has about you, the more you are closer to lose all your money. Not just money, the thief practically becomes YOU in the digital world and can do anything he wants.

Stage II: Draining of Your Money

After becoming YOU, the thief can do online shopping to his hearts fill. Your bank account is compromised.
The money in your account is transferred to ‘certain’ other accounts. Now these accounts could either be created for this purpose, or they could be hijacked by the criminals with the permission of the account holder. From there, your money is simply cashed out and goes into the hands of the Cyber Criminals.
The money from your account can also be flushed out through less obstructed online sites, to the fraud accounts.

Can’t I protect myself from these Cyber Thieves?


Can’t I protect myself from these Cyber Thieves?
Yes, You Can. Knowing how you are attacked by these Cyber Criminals is the only way to stay safe. You can’t fight, but you can protect yourself by taking precautions.
  1. Do not click on random emails and advertisements.
  2. Do not reveal your personal information online unless you completely trust the website.
  3. Do not share your personal information online.
  4. Protect your PC with good anti-virus softwares.
  5. Create strong passwords/ passphrases
If at any point you feel your personal information has been compromised at any level, take immediate actions. For eg: If your email account has been hacked, then change the passwords of all the accounts that your email is connected to. Report it to concerned email service provider.
If Your bank account is compromised, then immediately change the information on your online account gateways, like Paypal. If you are suspicious of the activities through your credit card, Immediately contact your Bank.
