Why Hackers Love Public Wi-Fi

Why Hackers Love Public Wi-Fi
On the occasion of World Wi-Fi day the realisation has become strong that people are easily connected with each other globally. Modernization has brought a lot of changes around the world and now India is getting integrated in this process fast. Indians have come to know the value of Internet; now we can find Wi-Fi installed in each and every house in the metropolitian cities as well as in small towns. Nowadays, we can see free public WI-Fi which is widely and readily available in places like airports, restaurants, coffee shops, libraries etc. We all run for free things as we run for free internet connection as well. As we all know, using free internet connection can be the best way to access online accounts, catch up on work and check emails as well. However, there are many security risks involved which could not be ignored, since you could be an easy target for hackers while placing your information which can be a risk. Online crimes are taking different forms which we have come across and according to The Norton Cybersecurity Insights report has revealed that 77 percent of Indians would feel devastated if their personal financial information were compromised and 52 percent actually have either personal experienced of a credit card fraud or know someone who has. With public Wi-Fi available everywhere, what seems like a convenience can actually put you at a great risk. Free public Wi-Fi is a hacker’s playground for stealing personal information.To avoid becoming one of the victims of Cybercrime, we need to enhance our knowledge regarding Wi-Fi.
Risks of public Wi-Fi and how to stay safe online
Man-in-the-Middle Attack

One of the many dangers of using a public Wi-Fi network is that data over this type of open connection is often not encrypted and unsecured, leaving you vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack. What is an MITM? It’s when a cybercriminal exploits a security flaw in the network to intercept data. Essentially, this gives a hacker access to sniff out any information that passes between you and the websites you visit — details of browsing activities, account logins and purchase transactions. Your sensitive information, such as passwords and financial data, are then vulnerable to identity theft.

Rogue Hotspots

Another risk of using free public Wi-Fi is that you may be connecting via a rogue hotspot. This is an open hotspot, usually with a name similar to that of a legitimate hotspot, which cyber criminals set up to lure people into connecting to their network. Once a victim connects to the rogue Wi-Fi hotspot, the host hacker can then intercept data and even use tools to inject malware into the connected devices.

Better Wi-Fi Security Habits to Stay Safe from Cybercrime

Did you know that 66percent of consumers in India think that using public Wi-Fi is riskier than using a public restroom? Yet, while the Norton Cyber security Insights Report revealed that people are aware of the risks of public Wi-Fi, the survey also showed that people are not practising safe security habits online.

How Norton helps you make it harder for cyber criminals to steal your information on public Wi-Fi:
§   Avoid connecting to public Wi-Fi. If you must use a public Wi-Fi hotspot, also use a virtual private network (VPN) to secure your connection.
§  Don’t log in to password-protected websites that contain sensitive information when using a public Wi-Fi connection — for example, banking and social networking sites, or even email.
§  Keep your software patched and up to date on all your devices — even your mobile ones — to avoid any potential infections by viruses or malware if you do use unsecured public Wi-Fi.
   §   One More Security Habit: Use a Virtual Private Network

   §   A VPN creates a “secure tunnel” where data sent over a Wi-Fi connection is encrypted, making all that data sent to and from your device secure. Using a VPN is a safe Wi-Fi security habit that can protect you when connecting to the Internet on the go.

Your TV with CCTV Security

Connect Your TV with CCTV Security

Connecting a CCTV camera to a consumer TV is extremely simple and requires only the use of a coaxial or RCA cable to be run from the camera to the TV. Both of these types of cable can be purchased at any electronics store for a low cost.

Instructions 1.

Determine what connections the CCTV security camera has. The TV should have both RCA and coaxial inputs; at a minimum it will have one of them. The CCTV camera will likely not have both inputs. Look at the back of the camera and determine whether it has ports for coaxial or RCA.

Instructions 2.

Measure out the distance from the CCTV camera to the TV. This measurement will be needed to determine the length of cable to purchase.

Instructions 3.

Purchase either an RCA or coaxial cable. Ensure that a long enough cable is purchased using the required measurements. Both of these cables are widely available at most electronics stores.


Instructions 4.

Connect the cable to the back of the CCTV camera. A RCA cable will simply be plugged into the back of the camera, match colors of the cable with the colors of the input ports. A coaxial cable will need to be screwed into the back of the camera.


Instructions 5.

Run the cable from the CCTV camera to the TV.


Instructions 6.

Connect the cable to the TV's input ports. Again RCA cables will be plugged in and a coaxial cable will be screwed in. Turn on the TV, and it should be receiving the live feed from the CCTV camera. The TV may need to be tuned to a different video input or channel to receive the connection, but this depends on the make and model of the TV.
