Beware of search engine ads: Social engineering in action

Sanjeev Kumar Jaiswal's picture

Cyber crime in actionBefore proceeding further some common question to all readers.

  • Which search engine do you use? Google, yahoo, Bing, Lycos etc?
  •  How many of you know about virus, worms, malware, spam, social engineering, session hi jacking etc.?
  • How many times you clicked the link which led you to a known page but the web address is somewhat different?
  • Have you ever been the victim of such things, like clicking on image or any link may lead spam installation by default into your system? Or one fake message will be spread to all you friends from your account? (I am sure more than 70% would lie in this category).

I love GmailEverybody is already well acquainted with the mailing system’s usages. In brief it’s a platform through which you can send, receive your messages with/without attachments. Attachment may include audio, video, books, exe files too! (Beware of social engineering!).

There are hell lot of mail providers are there like yahoo mail, rediff mail, hotmail, Gmail , gmx, in.com and now facebook too!  You can read the features of mail providers from here.

But I personally prefer Gmail over other mailing services due to various reasons:

Gmail allows access to multiple account: Multiple Sign-in

gmail-after-click-switchAlthough Gmail introduced multiple Gmail account login somewhere around March 2010 but at the same time very few percentage of Gmail users have tried it or using it. I really liked Google’s concept.

You can login to as many multiple accounts as you may have. I tried to login with my 6 account credentials and it allowed me to login at the same time.

Not sure about its maximum account login limit. But I guess, nobody would be having more than 5 accounts at Gmail. (Fake people may have. By the way I use it for experiment purposes. I am not a fake guy!)

Q: How you can enable/disable Multiple Sessions facility in my Gmail account?

exe files attachedHave you ever noticed that you cannot send any executable file format through mail?
Whatever mail agent would be, say Gmail or Yahoo or Rediff. No one allows you to send files which have executable format like .chm, .exe, .js, .vbs etc

But there are two most common ways to send such files through your mail id. I would show it using Gmail Account.

Problem:  While attaching above mentioned formats, I got error stating that it’s an executable file. For Security reason Gmail doesn’t allow you to send this type of file.

1. Will not it be nice, if we could get something useful instead of those advertisements? 
2. How about getting social updates from different linked sites from the mail sender?

Apache HTTP ServerIf you ask me which server is the number one http server is over the internet, I would support for Apache HTTP server. It’s very light and very efficient.
