Trick #10 - Basic Security Tips Against Hackers

Hackers and Browser Hijacking is one area of the Net that affects everyone at some stage.

In addition to having third party utilities such as SpyBot, Anti Virus scanners and firewalls installed there are some changes that can be made to Windows 2000/XP. Below are some details to make your system safer from hackers and hijackers.

Some of these tips require editing of the Registry so it is wise to either backup the registry and/or create a Restore Point.

1. Clearing the Page File at Shutdown


Windows 2000/XP paging file (Sometimes called the Swap File) can contain sensitive information such as plaintext passwords. Someone capable of accessing your system could scan that file and find its information. You can force windows to clear out this file.


In the registry navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSe ssion ManagerMemory Management and add or edit the DWORD ClearPageFileAtShutdown. Set it to 1.


Note that when you do this, the system will take much longer to shut down: a system with a really big Page File (! Gig or more) may take a minute or two longer.


2. Disable the POSIX and OS/2 Subsystem.


Windows 2000 and XP come with little-documented subsystems it at allow compatibility with UNIX and OS/2 systems These rues systems are enabled by default but so rarely used that they are best off bring disabled completely to prevent possible service hijackings.


To disable these subsystems, open the registry and navigate to HKEY LOCAL MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerSubSystems. Delete the subkeys Os2 and Posix. then reboot.



3. Never leave default passwords blank.


On installation, Windows 2000 sets up an Administrator account with total system access and prompts for a password. Guess what: by default, it allows that password to be blank. If a user doesn't want to type a password, he can simply click Next and the system will be an open door for anyone who wants to log on. Always opt for a password of some kind when setting up the default account on a machine.



4. Disable the Guest account


Windows XP comes with a Guest account that's used for limited access, but it's still possible to do some damage with it. Disable it completely if you are not using it. Under Control Panel, select User Accounts, click on Guest Account and then select Turn Off the Guest Account.



5. Install Windows In a different directory.


Windows usually installs itself in the WINDOWS directory. Windows NT 4 0 and 2000 Will opt for WINNT. Many worms and other rogue programs assume this to be the case and attempt to exploit those folders files. To defeat this install Windows to another directory when you're setting it up - you can specify the name of the directory during setup. WINDIR is okay; so some people use WNDWS - A few (not that many) programs may not install properly if you install Windows to another folder but t hey are very few and they are far between


6. Fake out hackers with a dummy Administrator account


Since the default account in Windows 2000 is always named Administrator, an enterprising hacker can try to break into your system by attempting to guess the password on that account. It you never bothered to put a password on that account, say your prayers.


Rather than be a sucker to a hacker, put a password on the Administrator account it you haven't done so already. Then change the name of the Administrator account. You'll still be able to use the account under its new name, since Windows identifies user accounts by a back-end ID number rather than the name. Finally, create a new account named Administrator and disable it. This should frustrate any would -be break-ins.


You can add new accounts and change the names of existing accounts in Windows 2000 through the Local Users and Groups snap in. Right-click on My Computer, select Manager, open the Local Users and Groups subtree, look in the Users folder and right-click on any name to rename it. To add a new user, right-click on the containing folder and select New User. Finally, to disable an account, double-click it, check the Account is disabled box and click OK.


Don't ever delete the original Administrator account. Some programs refuse to install without it and you might have to log in under that account at some point to setup such software. The original Administrator account is configured with a security ID that must continue to be present in the system.


7. Set the Hosts file to read-only to prevent name hijacking.


This one's from (and to a degree, for) the experts. The HOSTS file is a text file that all flavors of Windows use to hold certain network addresses that never change. When a network name and address is placed in HOSTS, the computer uses the address listed there for that network name rather than performing a lookup (which can take time). Experts edit this file to place their most commonly-visited sites into it, speeding things up considerably.


Unfortunately hijackers and hackers also love to put their own information into it - redirecting people from their favorite sites to places they don't want to go. One of the most common entries in HOSTS is local host which is set 1770.0.1. This refers to the local machine and if this entry is damaged the computer can behave very unpredictably.


To prevent HOSTS from being hijacked, set it to read-only. Go to the folder %Systemroot%system32driversetc, right-click on HOSTS, select Properties check the Read-Only box and click OK. If you want to add your own entries to HOSTS, you can unprotect it before doing so, but always remember to set it to read-only after you're done.


8. Turn off unneeded Services


Windows 2000 and XP both come with many background services that don't need to he running most of the time: Alerter, Messenger, Server (If you're running a standalone machine with no file or printer shares), NetMeeting Remote Desktop Sharing, Remote Desktop Help Session Manager (the last two if you're not using Remote Desktop or NetMeeting), Remote Registry, Routing and Remote Access (if you're not using Remote Access), SSDP Discovery Service, Telnet, and Universal Plug and Play Device Host.


9. Disallow changes to IE settings through IE

This is another anti hijacker tip. IE can be set so that any changes to its settings must be performed through the Internet icon in the Control Panel, rather than through IE's own interface. Some particularly unscrupulous programs or sites try to tamper with setting by accessing the Tools, Options menu in IE. You can disable this and still make changes to IE's settings through the Control Panel.


Open the Registry and browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER SoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftInternet ExplorerRestrictions. Create or edit a new DWORD value named NoBrowserUptions and set it to 1 (this is a per-user setting). Some third-party programs such as Spybot Search And Destroy allow you to toggle this setting.


You can also keep IE from having other programs rename its default startup page, another particularly annoying form of hijacking. Browse to HKEY.CURRENT USERSoftwarePolicies MicrosoftInternet ExploreControl Panel and add or edit a DWORD, Homepage and set it to 1.


10. Disable simple FileShares


In Windows XP Professional, the Simple File Sharing mode is easily exploited, since it抯 a little too easy to share out a file across your LAN (or the NET at large). To turn it off, go m My Computer, click Tools, Folder Option and the View tab, and uncheck Use Simple file sharing (Recommended). Click OK. When you do this you can access the Security tab in the Properties window for all folders; set permissions for folders; and take ownership of objects (but not in XP Home)

Trick #13 - How To Verify Paypal Account in India



Paypal is used for online money transactions and is a wholly owned subsidiary of eBay .To sign up for a new account you will need PAN card number.If your account is not verified you can’t withdraw more than $500 in one month.


There are two methods to verify a Paypal Account

  • Confirm Your Bank Account
  • Confirm Your Credit/Debit Card

Confirm Your Bank Account:-For bank account verification paypal deposits two small amounts in your bank account.You have to look in your account statement and enter the exact amount that have been deposited in your account.


I tried to verify my Punjab National Bank (PNB) account but the amount deposited by paypal didn’t show in my bank statement.

Confirm Your Credit/Debit card :-If you use this option paypal will deduct a small amount usually $1.95 (around 100 Rs).You have to enter the expuse number (4 digit number ) for that transaction in your paypal account.Expuse number should be visible in your credit card statement.The deducted amount will be added into your account after you verify the account.



When I tried to verify using my PNB credit card the money was deducted from my account but the expuse was not available in my credit card transaction details.



I discussed the matter with an employee of my local PNB branch but he had no clue about expuse number.

After a lot of research I found a way to verify paypal account.You need to have a HDFC account for using this trick.

HDFC Netsafe Cards:-Hdfc netsafe is used to create Vitual Credit Cards (VCC).You can create as many virtual master/Visa cards as you want and they will only have the amount you fill in them.

  • Sign Up for HDFC Netsafe account.
  • Now login into your Netsafe account.
  • We have to create a new Virtual credit card. Enter any amount between Rs 100 and 200 and click on GO button.


  • Now your new credit card will be generated.Copy Virtual Credit Card Number, CVV2 & Card Expiry Date
  • Open your paypal account and click on Get Verified link.
  • Now fill all the required fields such as Name,Card Type.In Card number,Expiry Date and Security code enter the details of Virtual credit card (VCC).


  • Now Click on Save and Continue Button

Now Paypal will deduct an amount of $1.95 from your VCC and you have to locate the expuse number for this transaction.

How To Locate Expuse Number In HDFC Netsafe Card

  • Login Into your HDFC Netsafe Account.


  • Click on All Accounts and Services Link
  • Now click on the Txn. Details button at the bottom of this page.It will open all the transaction details of your virtual credit cards.


  • Locate the 4-digit Expuse number with paypal transaction.



Copy the code and enter it in your paypal account verification page , click on Submit button.



  • This will verify your paypal account.

Trick #14 - How to access WUpload in India


#1.1 What Happened?

In simple words - Wupload is banned for Indian Internet Users. At least that's what happened to Indian Users like one of my friend. Whether permanently or temporarily, that we do not know. Nevertheless, We've put up 100% working fix which worked for my friend in #1.4.


#1.2 What other members are saying:

Some say that Wupload is working in both Tata Photon and BSNL. We made this topic just to inform you, We're always entitled to our view.


#1.3 how can some Indians still download from Wupload?

That's because they're using a different ISP which could be Airlel, MTNL or others. If you have BSNL or Tata Photon and you can access Wupload - good for you.


#1.4 What's the solution?

We are proud to announce a 100% working solution tested on Our Friend's System... So Here it goes - After changing my friend's PCs DNS to Google's DNS, everything started to work absolutely fine. Wupload was working fine after we did the changes on his pc. All you need to do is change your PC or Laptop's DNS server to Google's DNS server i.e. and Once done, you'll find that Wupload is working absolutely fine. Huge thanks to us. tongue.gif


#1.5 How to change the DNS? (Source)

Open Network Connections. Start menu > My Computer > My Network Places > View Network Connections

Locate the network connection that is associated with your Internet connection.


This may be labeled something like Local Area Connection or Wireless Network Connection. If you have more than one connection to choose from, be sure you determine the right one before proceeding.


Right click on the appropriate connection and select Properties.

In the list that appears under the General tab, double click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).

In the window that appears, you want to select the option to Use the following DNS server addresses.

Enter in Preferred DNS Server.

Enter in Alternate DNS Server.

This should be the final image before you click OK.

Press OK out of all windows until you are back to the Network Connections window.


Now open your preferred web browser to verify that WUpload is Working!


#1.6 Would you recommend any ISP?

Since we now have a working fix, we don't think it'll be necessary for us to change our ISP. If however, you would want to change your ISP you could go for Airtel.


#1.7 What do the (actual) downloaders do?

The solution is uploaded. Use it and Wupload works just fine. If you don't have a premium account - then I suggest you go for RapidPremium. Its one of the best service we have ever used and something we can still personally suggest.


#1.8 What about uploaders?


The best way is to use the solution mentioned above and change your PC's DNS. If you don't want to do so, then this is a list of (old) possible solutions -


RDP (relatively expensive if you don't have one already)


Proxy server




Changing your ISP


Use Hotspot Shield -> http://www.mediafire.com/?sz2uya2a1pc7k7h


Please note that this suggestion is just for accessing Wupload for blocked users in India, We dont guarantee this to work for uploaders in India though.
