How To Track  Down  A Newbie Hacker 1
Tracking down a hacker isn’t very easy .You have to be smart and when i say smart , i mean very smart.
High class hackers are hardly caught because they keep their identity hidden, however i won’t go into
that now. Low class hackers are those that simply hack your site because there was a security flaw in your
system. i’ve searched around the net, the hackers here in nigeria are very dumb , if i must say.

They want to show off that they just hacked a site ,and put their email addresses ,facebook usernames and
even  their facebook pages so  that webmasters can easily contact them and  pay some money
to regain their sites back. I released a list of those who hacked the inec site  during the elections but
i later deleted it since i got many calls pleading with me to remove it. I removed the post from my site for
reasons best known to me however the post still exists on nairaland.com.

There are many ways to track down a hacker however i’m only going to drop the easiest methods as
the other methods are very complicated.

How To Track  Down  A Newbie Hacker 2

1. LOGIC
2. IP TRACKING.

1. LOGIC

This is all about taking time to think and analyse every part of the hacked site and
determine how best to track down the hackers. If there is an email address. Google the
email address and check other sites where they have been used. there is 80% possibility that
the email has been used else where. It might appear on  reappear on websites or forums or youtube comments.
If it pops up on facebook then you are 75% close to knowing who hacked your site.

Youtube comments and forums give you a hint of who the hacker might be.
Let’s assume [email protected] hacked your site and dropped this email.
Go to google and search for [email protected] and see what it brings up.
Don’t be deceived when you track down a hacker on facebook and his location shows it’s indonesia or
any other country, it’s just a way to deceive you.

Hackers use funny but deceptive names. You might see Something like Discr33tH8xor or H33TM8N,V3CT0R, as the name of the hacker shown on
your site . If you google it and nothing comes up just decrypt it.

DISCR33TH8XOR IS EQUAL TO DISCREETHAXOR
H33TMAN CAN BE DECRYPTED TO HEETMAN, HITMAN OR HEATMAN
V3CTOR IS VICTOR OR VECTOR

THAT IS 3=E OR I
AND 8 = A OR AT

depending on where it is used.

If there is something like fb.m3/discr33th8xor type www.facebook.com/discr33th8xor on google then search. if nothing comes up then decrypt it.

To be sure that it’s a hacker that you’ve detected go to his photos and review the pics there. You must see hacking related pictures and if you come
across any hacking related image and he tags some certain people compare the names written on your blog to those he tagged. There’s a possibility that it might
match.

Unless the hacker hid his friends, go to his friends list and check the top 5 peole on his list. Facebook algorithm works in a way that those you interact with
most appear at the top of your list. Hackers interact more with hackers. If that’s done then you’ve caught the hacker.

2. IP TRACKING

This method is not effective most times because people can change their ip. A hacker with a Nigerian Ip like 45.345.789.908 can easily change to 193.087,786 which might be a us or
canadian ip. all you have to do is to check the last time a page in your site was accessed and check the last time your blog was loaded by an ip before it went down.I hardly use this service but it’s worth
a try . the ip that reoccurs most is probably the hacker. to use ip tracking services just type ip trackers on google ,select your preferred service and follow their setup instructions carefully.

Mediatek unveils Helio G95 gaming Processor for budget smartphones, could debut on Tecno Camon 16 or Realme 7 9

Adding to its ever-growing portfolio and stern competition to it’s Qualcomm counterpart, Taiwanese chipmaker, Mediatek has announced a new gaming Chipset for the Helio G90 series. The Helio G95 SoC offers a 5% boost in GPU performance over the G90T though the rest of the feature set is identical to the latter.

With the G95, MediaTek aims at closing the huge gap existing between the mid-range and flagship gaming smartphone segment and the first phone to use this processor could be the Tecno Camon 16 or Realme 7 with both due for official releases on September 3.

The G90T ended up on phones like the Redmi Note 8 and Note 9 Pro and Realme 6 , so the odds are on we likely get to see more phones with the G95 chip launch in the final lap of the third quarter of the year.

Here’s everything the Mediatek Helio G95 has on offer

Mediatek Helio G95 Features

Essentially, it would be best to understand that the Helio G95 SoC is an overclocked G90T processor, in that it comes with an upgraded Mali-G76 GPU running at 900MHz. The G90T, on the other hand, is equipped with a Mali-G57 GPU that’s running at 800MHz.

Features like HyperEngine game technology, multi-camera support of upto 4 sensors and an APU (AI processing unit) are also very much welcome. The chip also supports upto HDR10+ enhancement quality in real-time.

The G95 processor is manufactured using the 12nm fabrication process and has two Cortex-A76 cores running at 2.05GHz while the six power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores can run upto 2.0GHz.

MediaTek’s famed HyperEngine game technology is responsible for optimizing the gaming experience to provide the best connection speed, picture quality and ensures a smooth gameplay experience on budget devices. There are several customisation options that users can fine-tune further.

Furthermore, Helio G95 chipset supports upto 10GB LPDDR4x RAM, UFS 2.1 storage, upto Full HD+ displays with 90Hz refresh rate and dual 4G SIM cards.

Additionally, the chip can be paired with upto 64MP cameras with upto 4K UHD rerecording.

The MediaTek Helio G95 will power many phones set to launch in September. The first of such as confirmed by Naijatechguy could be the Tecno Camon 16 set to launch on September 3 in India.

The smartphone has been teased with stunning bezeles display, a 64MP camera unit with Samsung’s GM1 or Sony’s IMX686 sensor here which could all play into the hands of the new Helio G95 processor.

"Fitbit of tiny wires in your skull" - Elon Musk set to define future of Neurotechnology  with landmark Neuralink chip unveiling 11

In case you missed it probably you’ve been living under a rock or something incredibly heavy, a major global announcement was passed on couple hours ago which could well determine what value our lives still hold here on Earth

Naahh, definitely not another wave of Coronavirus but

Research nerd and Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s neuroscience startup Neuralink on Friday unveiled a coin-sized computer chip that could provide the age-old solution to treating brain and neuro-ailments.

The move is regarded as another giant stride though early step taken toward the goal of curing human diseases with the same type of implant.

Co-founded by Elon Musk’s Tesla Inc and SpaceX CEO Musk in 2016, San Francisco Bay Area-based Neuralink aims to implant wireless brain-machine interfaces that include thousands of electrodes in the most complex human organ to help cure neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s, dementia and spinal cord injuries and ultimately fuse humankind with artificial intelligence.

Though the mighty risks of artificial intelligence can’t be understated, Neuralink implant’s most important achievement beyond medical applications would be “some kind of AI symbiosis where you have an AI extension of yourself.”

This practically would mean having small-smart devices that electronically stimulate nerves and brain areas to treat hearing loss and Parkinson’s disease have been implanted in humans for decades.

Brain implant trials have also been conducted with a small number of people who have lost control of bodily functions due to spiral cord injuries or neurological conditions like strokes.

“An implantable device can actually solve these problems,” Musk said on a webcast Friday, mentioning ailments such as memory loss, hearing loss, depression and insomnia.

Musk did not provide a timeline for those treatments, appearing to retreat from earlier statements that human trials would begin by the end of this year. Neuralink’s first clinical trials with a small number of human patients would be aimed at treating paralysis or paraplegia, the company’s head surgeon Dr. Matthew MacDougall said.

For the Friday Neuralink webcast, Musk presented what he described as the “three little pigs demo.”

Gertrude, the pig with a Neuralink implant in the part of its brain that controls the snout, required some coaxing by Musk to appear on camera, but eventually began eating off of a stool and sniffing straw, triggering spikes on a graph tracking the animal’s neural activity.

Musk said the company had three pigs each implanted with the chip for the past couple months, and also revealed a pig that previously had an implant. They were “healthy, happy and indistinguishable from a normal pig,” Musk said. Musk said the company predicted a pig’s limb movement during a treadmill run at “high accuracy” using implant data.

Furthermore, the Neuralink’s chip, is roughly 23 millimeters (0.9 inch) in diameter which Musk described as “a Fitbit in your skull with tiny wires” making it relatively minute in size.

“I could have a Neuralink right now and you wouldn’t know,” Musk said. “… Maybe I do.”

We hope you don’t for now though Mr Musk!

Stanford University neuroscientist Sergey Stavisky said the company had made substantial and impressive progress since an initial demonstration of an earlier chip in July 2019.

“Going from that to the fully implanted system in several pigs they showed is impressive and, I think, really highlights the strengths of having a large multidisciplinary team focused on this problem,” Stavisky said.

Neuralink’s chip could also improve the understanding of neurological diseases by reading brain waves, one of the company’s scientists said during the presentation.

Though some researchers however opined longer studies would be required to determine the longevity and lifespan of the device.

Also, Startups such as Kernel, Paradromics and NeuroPace are trying to exploit advancements in material, wireless and signaling technology to create devices similar to Neuralink making it really a race in time to create an actual feasible device.

Though another question which albeit could be on the lips of users will be about personalization of data. We are not envisaging a Google Ad kind of scenario here, but with the extent user data is been mined and misused, you can only prepare for the worst nowadays.
