Hacking Yahoo Mail account: How did he do it??

After yesterday hacking incident on my gf's yahoo mail account, we called and emailed yahoo customer service and answered all of the security question just to prove that she owns the yahoo id. Yahoo then emailed  us the new password and we were able to retrieve the account from the bastard.

So how the hacker did it???? It was just a simple page that collects username and password. But he is skilled on "social engineering". At first you will not notice anything because the flow of conversation is friendly.

The yahoo mail phishing webpage was so simple. Last night i debug the page by using fiddler2, a free web debugging tool. So after the victim entered the username and password and clicked the fake Sign On button, the account information will be then be saved in a clear text file that the hacker then can retrieve and used to logon unto the victim's account. After that he will change your password and 0wn your account.

Saves username and password on clear text

So if you are a victim of such incident, call Yahoo Customer Service, email them and never forget all information that you used during the creation of your account, alternate email, pet's name, birthday, etc. War against cyber crime is true so always be on guard.

Yahoo Mail Account hacked

My gf yahoo mail account was hacked. A friend of her chatted thru yahoo messenger and asking for a load. At first you will not notice the scam because the chat was in Tagalog (native language in the Philippines). And after that the hacker asked her to check a URL for him.

Yahoo account scam

The page looks like a yahoo mail login page. She then mistakenly entered her username and password.. and boom, her account was hacked.

The hacker then used my gf's yahoo account and chat her friends in yahoo messenger asking again for a load. After a series of conversation on one of her friends. A former officemate in Manila called her and asked if she were in the Philippines and if she is online on YM. They were puzzled why would she then asked for a cellphone load. Rachel notified me to check her Yahoo  but no avail, the hacker already changed the password.

I tried to reset the password but she forgot her alternate email. We called yahoo's customer service but they are already closed for the day.

We spent the night changing all of our account's password and calling friends not to chat her YM ID just to avert further damage.

Steamboat Singapore

Steamboat is a mini personal pot with choices of chicken or tom yam as soup for the food. It reminds me of Japanese's "shabu-shabu".

Yesterday we had a night out with our housemates in  "Hook on Steamboat" at East Coast Singapore. It was really great!!! Unlimited food and ice cream for only $S17.00 per person. Highly recommended.

Cook egg using cell phones

Is it true that you can boil egg by using two cellphones???? I will never again put my cellphone inside my pants pocket.
In the experiment, researchers placed one egg in a porcelain cup (because it is easy to conduct heat), and put one cell phone on one side and another cell phone on the other. The researchers then called from one cell phone to another and kept the cell phones on after connecting.

During the first 15 minutes, nothing changed. After 25 minutes, however, the egg shell started to become hot and at 40 minutes, the surface of the egg became hard and bristled. Researchers found the protein in the egg had become solid although the egg yolk was still in liquid form. After 65 minutes, the whole egg was well cooked.

What is blogging?:?

My housemates asked me "what is blogging???" I told them blogging is writing everything you want... writing about life, recipes, cars, music, sexcapades etc. And it is true, there is money in blogging if you work for it. You must dedicate some of the time in link building, page optimization and most of all, the working on the blog's content. I also show them some successfull blogs and how they can build their blog network around it. Thru blogging, you gain friends and at the same time enemies if you allow it. Happy blogging to all.
