Have updated WB Driving School for Folkestone driving lessons. The website is now fully responsive, and focuses on the great offers available from the driving school.
Online skincare product supplier Skinaddict was launched last month and is now taking orders. They specialise in Environ and DermaQuest products and are the only online retailer certified as official stockists for both brands.
The website uses the Volusion eCommerce platform, our involvement being in managing the store set up process, fine-tuning the site template, and helping to add their products and content.
A skincare blog has now also been added for skincare tips and news.
Hacking and Phishing attacks have been a problem on Twitter for a while, and they show no signs of slowing down so I thought I would post some tips to help other Twitter users not become the next target on the hacker’s list.
There are two main methods by which a hacker can compromise your Twitter account:
The main method to hack your account is to simply trick you into giving the hacker your account details, or trick you into allowing a rogue App access to your Twitter account.
A usual way for a hacker to do this, is to send a Direct Message to you from an already hacked follower account. This message has taken the form of ‘This person is spreading nasty rumours about you’, or ‘Look what people are saying’, or more recently ‘how is this possible?’, or ‘what?’. The message will also contain a link, typically created through a URL shortening service such as tinyurl.com. If you click on this link then you will be taken to a fake Twitter website where you are asked to confirm your Twitter details and/or allow access to a Twitter App.
After doing this, the hacker can access your account and can re-send the DM on your behalf to the next wave of targets (all your followers…). Tweets will also be posted to your timeline, with links to spam or malware.
The less likely way for a hacker to gain access to Twitter accounts, is to simply keep trying variations of passwords until they find the correct one. This might sound unlikely, why would someone bother hacking your account in preference to anyone else on Twitter. However, most hacking is performed using automated scripts, and so the image of a hacker sitting in front of a computer targeting you personally hasn’t been true for several years.
Their hacking script will build (and add to) a list of target accounts, and then keep trying passwords over a long period of time until the correct password is found. Obviously, if you have a common and/or simple password then within a few days, weeks (or even months) your account is vulnerable to this sort of attack.
Once the hacker has access to your account then they can use automated scripts to send out spam direct messages to all your followers, or post spam tweets on your behalf.
Hope this helps, the main points to remember are “secure password” and “don’t click on unsolicited links“!
We’ve set up websites for vets before, and we can proudly add Kynoch Vets to our client list.
