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.

f33l fr33 to 8sk 8ny qu3stion. Decrypt that …

iTunes is going to be shut down officially 10

After almost two decades of service, Apple is reportedly dumping iTunes.

It first started off as rumors, but now it is going to be made official at WWDC in just a few hours.

iTunes is going to be shut down officially 11

Before this, you might have noticed that the Instagram and Facebook page of iTunes has had a slight change.

iTunes is going to be shut down officially 12

iTunes is going to be shut down officially 13

Posts on both pages has been entirely deleted – Apple’s move at shifting away from iTunes links, I guess.

Before this, there has been separate apps for music on its mobile devices, however, not available for Mac OS.

Relating to that, there is supposedly going to be an announcement for three separate apps for its music, TV and podcasts, and hopefully they’ll also be available for Mac Books.

We’ll just keep our fingers crossed for this and other big announcements at WWDC.

Google Stadia – The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? – Reader Opinion

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 14

A few weeks ago, Google announced the release of Google Stadia a new state of the art gaming platform that would change gaming as we know it apparently.

Google Stadia

This has been met with a lot of skepticism in the gaming community if this is going to actually work but I believe Stadia has what it takes to change the whole console gaming model that we have been used to for years, However, it would take some time to actually give Microsoft and Sony a run for their money.

Google Stadia Controller

Google Stadia actually got me thinking Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox would have a strong problem to contend with when it fully launches this year. Google Stadia’s cross-platform play is something I’m looking forward to, so you can play hardware intensive games on a system or phone with low specs.

Imagine playing PUBG or FIFA on a 1GB RAM Phone or Laptop and it runs without any lagging or glitches. So it’s practically goodbye to having to get a new system to play some games if they are available on Stadia.

I decided to put out this question to you guys on facebook and I was pretty impressed with the replies I got.

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 15

Apeh Ikechukwu said – Even if it will be the beginning of the end for PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it will take time A very long time for it to gain popularity and to be accepted by all.
What if it becomes more expensive? That you have to pay huge to access it?

George Oz said – I don’t think to gain popularity is a problem, the announcement alone gathered enough publicity online. And yes it is definitely the end for others Like x-Box and co…Sometimes let’s learn to think Outside the Box.
#MyOpinion🚶🚶🚶🚶🚶

Osazeme Usen said – Stadia will take quite a long while to catch on. Internet speed is still an issue in most nations of the world. In the long run, stadia will eventually be cheaper than owning a console and purchasing games but that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Olusola Glory Olamide said – Before we throw those Xboxes, PlayStations, Nintendo Switches and stuffs to the bin of history we have questions to answer.
Will most gamers’ broadband connections be fast enough to make a streaming service of that proposition? Will developers all come on board? And is Google the right company to trust with the future of the games industry? Though we’ve got Apple on board and Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon are also in the launch plus Sony Nintendo and others won’t stay put.

ューセッ州 小岩 マサチ said – I feel we will have to pay for most of the games…and Nigeria’s 4g speed is about 2mb/s.

Samuel Jarvis Adeyemi said -Stadia is a good innovation from Google and I think it’s great since gaming could be done on a device, they said it would be super fast even cheating the speed of light in 4k Res without a glitch.
Anyways Google is the software boss, I think they can do it.

I hope Xbox and PS4 meet up but cloud gaming is not really their stuff. And Google has the resources.

Swiss Alex said – well mainly I would say Google Stadia is a welcome development but Xbox and the ps4 has to upgrade too

Google Stadia Reader Opinion – Join The Conversation

Google Stadia looks like something that would work very well in countries with very fast broadband connections for now. Hopefully, Google would find a way to bridge the gap and fix things before it gets rolled out to Africa and Asia. Nevertheless, it’s a win for gamers with this. So what’s your take on this?
