How to validate that your home router is not compromised

The wireless router can be the easiest target for hackers to compromise your network, if configured improperly. Hackers will employ many different methods to attempt to hack your router. Some of these methods that I will be talking about include Wi-Fi hacking and DNS hijacking. There are many different preventative measures than can be taken to ensure that you have a secure router. Setting up a secure router is very important because not only can your network and personal information be compromised, but you may be held legally responsible for all of the potentially illegal traffic that goes through your network. Validate that your router is secure A popular method for hackers to compromise all devices in DNS hijacking; DNS hijacking is when a hacker subverts the resolution of DNS queries. In other words, they can direct you to malicious websites even when you try to visit a known secure website such as your online banking website. This can be done to a personal computer within a network, or even the router if a router has vulnerabilities within its firmware. There are tools that exist to test if you are a victim of DNS hijacking. One such tool is F-Secure, you can check your security with this tool by visiting f-secure.com/router-checker/. What this tool does is analyze your own router’s DNS requests to see if they are being redirected to a third-party rogue DNS, or if the DNS requests are acting as they should.   Hackers may also try to gain access to your router by cracking your Wi-Fi password or simply joining your network if it is left...

How to setup and configure a wireless network in a secure manner

An improperly configured wireless network can present massive consequences for anyone. Consequences can range from freeloaders using your internet – to malware, data theft, and liability for illegal activity. If your network is left open and unsecured, you are practically inviting freeloaders to use your internet; you wouldn’t leave your doors open and unlocked at night, would you? You might know your neighbors well, but you do not want to be responsible for them or their kids downloading movies on your network. More dedicated hackers would prey on networks might prey on wireless networks using old weak encryption or might even try to guess weak and common passwords regardless of what kind of encryption you are using. Methods of Attack You should not only worry about those who live around you, there is a method called ‘wardriving’ that hackers use to prey on wireless networks. Wardriving involves people driving around, searching for and trying to gain access to networks while in a vehicle. Obviously open networks can be joined with ease, however there are more complex methods for more knowledgeable hackers. They use software such as Aircrack to obtain a handshake with a wireless network. The handshake is the exchange of the encrypted key between the client and the wireless router. The handshake is retrieved by sending de-authentication packets to disconnect devices from the wireless network; they then wait for a device to reconnect (most will automatically). Once a device attempts to reconnect, Aircrack captures the handshake as a .CAP file. The .CAP file can then be cracked with Aircrack using the CPU or converted to another format to...

How to setup and configure wireless network in secure manner?

Whether it be for home or business, a secure network connection is very important to protect the information stored on your computer or while using the internet. If you want to set up a secure network you must first determine the type of connection you want- either wireless only or the option to cable (Ethernet). Once you have established the type of connection you want for your home or business you can now protect your network. To protect your network you can begin by changing the SSID of your router. It’s recommended to use a SSID that is not recognizable or can be identified by your business or home name to avoid the attention of hackers or even neighbors that may try to use your connection. Once you have chosen an unidentifiable user name you can disable the routers SSID Broadcast setting to prevent hackers from detecting your wireless network. The next step in securing your wireless network is to set up encryption. A 128-bit encryption is more secure but the process will depend on the software installed on your router.  Using a WPA is most effective, WEP have been known to be insecure. Unfortunately, older computers may not support WPA and you will need to WEP by default. If you are able to use WPA you should set your password as a long alphanumeric combination with more than 10 characters that will be hard to guess by neighbors or hackers. If you have a firewall, which most antivirus software includes.  Another way to set up and configure a secure wireless network is to disable wireless administrating. This disables...

Visiting an infected website can result in unauthorized installation of adware on your computer. Virus: Is design to spread from host to host. It has the ability to replicate itself. A computer virus is a type of malicious program written to alter the way a computer operates. It is also designed to spread from one computer to another. A virus operates by inserting itself to a legitimate program in order to execute its code. Worms: A computer worm is a self-b replicating computer program that penetrates an operating system with the intend of spreading malicious codes.  Worms utilizes networks to send copies of the original code to others computers. Worms cause harm by consuming bandwidth or sometimes deleting files or sending document via e-mail. Worms can also install backdoor on computers. Worms are often...
