Comments, Questions and Answers


Need A Letter Brought Down - Help, I need a document brought down this month. It is in a one oz. letter and can be sent anywhere. - Thanks - Patricia Baum, teampaty1 [-at-] hotmail.com, 612 145-0882


Lost Wetsuit - If anyone found a mens large Excel 4/3 surfing wetsuit, light Blue and Grey with Yellow interior lining on the road between El Centro and La Pastora Wednesday morning, please call me. I would greatly appreciate it if someone found it for me. 612.152.8180 - Tommy Castelo, tommybcs [-at-] gmail.com, 612-152-8180, Todos Santos


More Hacked Yahoo Email Accounts - This week, two friends of mine both had their Yahoo Email accounts hacked. The hacker was able to figure out their password and log into their account. Once in, the attacker sent spam Emails to everyone in the victim's address book. The spam message usually promotes some website, often located in China, or countries in the former Soviet Union.

The attacker may also turn on the account's auto responder function so that every time someone sends an Email to the victim, they receive an automatic spam message. Worse yet, the attacker may also change the user password, locking the victim out of their own account. Fortunately, both victims in this week's attack were able to log in and change their passwords.

VERY IMPORTANT! First of all, you need to make absolutely sure your computer is completely free of viruses or malicious programs like "Key Loggers." Key Loggers are nasty little programs that secretly record your keyboard strokes and then send them to a remote attacker. When you type in your password on an infected machine, the attacker has it. Many of these burglar tools can be freely downloaded from hacker web sites all over the internet. Here is an example of some of the information that is out there (ugly stuff):

http://rahulhackingarticles.wetpaint.com/page/How+to+Break+Into+Email+Accounts?t=anon
Unfortunately, your own PC may be clean but you might check your Email from an infected PC at a friend's house or Internet Cafe. Unfortunately, others may not be as dilligent as you are in preventing their PCs from becoming infected. Just because it's a business doesn't mean that an Internet Cafe has safe machines.

There are many products out there that will scan your PC to ensure your computer is free of viruses and malicious programs. Most anti virus programs will do this, as well as programs like Spybot Search and Destroy. Although it's not a substitute for a good anti virus program, you can download Spybot Search and Destroy for free here:
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html
Password Security: Is your password something like "surfer1" ?

This is a very weak password, and can easily be figured out. Experts recommend you avoid using passwords that contain any word that can be found in a dictionary. Instead, you should create strong passwords composed of a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation marks. Here is an example: "J486Gmx!"

But how to remember such a combination? One technique is to use the license plate number from your car and alter it to include upper and lower case letters and a punctuation mark. For example, 6RUD058 becomes 6Rud058! or 6!ruDD058.

We covered this subject in more detail in the December 03, 2008 issue of the Baja Western Onion. You can find it online here:
