3 Plain Password Grabbing




This is another common method used to steal Gmail user’s password. Most people are unaware of these method but traditional hackers use this method to hack user accounts.

How Plain Password Grabbing works?
In this method, the Gmail hacker / attacker target a particular low quality website where the victim is a member and hack their database to get the stored plain username & password of victim. Here how could the hacker / attacker get access to Gmail? Many of us use the same password for Gmail and some poorxyz.com so its easy for a Gmail hacker to get your password through the low quality poorxyz.com.

In another scenario, the Gmail hacker / attacker creates a website in the intention of getting victim’s password. Whenever a user signup or register his account using email and create a password and those details will get stored in their db. So the Gmail hacker get your email and password. Common people who uses same email and password for these kind of low quality websites might end up getting their Gmail account hacked.

How can you protect yourself from Plain Password Grabbing?
You should never trust third party low quality websites, even popular websites like Linkedin passwords are getting hacked. So never and ever trust third party low quality websites. Most of the website developers are storing plain passwords in database without even thinking about encryption or security. This makes Gmail hackers job easy since the password is stored as plain text. Best way to prevent this method is to have a unique password at least for websites that you really trust. Don’t use your Gmail password for any other website/portal and that’s when your password will never get exposed.

How Key Logging works?
All keyloggers run in background (except trail versions) and won’t be viewable to users until you know the keylogger password and shortcut used to view it. It will record all the keys pressed and give you a detailed report of when and what keys are used for what application – Simply a clean report to identify passwords. Anyone who is reading the keylogger logs might be able to see the Gmail password or any passwords typed and sensitive information like credit cards, bank username password etc. Whenever you login to a public computer, there are chances for you to get your password hacked.

In another scenario, your friend/colleague/neighbor could ask you to login using their computer as a help. If their intention is to get your password then you are most likely to get your FB account hacked.

How can you protect yourself from Key Logging?
You need not be afraid of key loggers when you use your personal computer since you are the only one who is going to access it. But whenever you use any public computer or any of your friend’s computer, you should not trust it.

I always suggest my friends to use On Screen Keyboard whenever they are in need to type a password, also please make sure nobody is checking your screen while you type your password since your screen would expose what you had typed. In windows, there is a inbuilt tool called On Screen Keyboard that helps us to select keys using mouse. You can open OSK by using Run dialog box. WinKey R opens Run dialog box, type osk and then press enter. Now a days many banking portals provide a screen keyboard in browser itself. So please make use of it whenever you are surfing in public computers.

5 Browser Extension Gmail Hacker
This method don’t let the Gmail hacker / attacker give complete access to your Gmail account but gives some power to control your account indirectly. I’ve seen multiple Google Chrome and Firefox addons which secretly perform actions like sharing a post in Google plus, following a Google page etc.

When you visit some malicious websites or webpages, you will be prompted to install a browser addon. Once you install the addon, it would perform all the tasks described by Gmail hacker or attacker who created it. Some primary actions are posting status updates in your Google wall, following a Google page, following a person, inviting your friends etc. You may not know these things happening in your Google account except when you check your Google Activities periodically.

You can monitor your Gmail account activities using a feature called Google History. You should not trust any third party websites prompting you to add a browser extension. Install addons only if you trust the publisher. Why should you take risk if you don’t know the publisher or intention of the addon? Always stay from these malicious browser extensions.

Having an updated anti-virus software do not guarantee you to stay safe from hacking. Basically an anti-virus software is a collection of detected malwares and viruses. Its job is to compare each and every file with their database of viruses. There are many softwares which enable us to create a undetectable trojans.
