Airport Security Hacked

Most of us never consider that a customs official could confiscate our laptops as we travel across borders, copy information from it and return it to us hours (or days or weeks) later – but it happens. C|net has created a handy guide for frequent travelers who are concerned about this issue and wish to protect their personal or professional data from prying eyes.

OK, so we’ve all probably considered what it would be like to be one of those poor saps who falls victim to online con artists – but how many of us have thought about what it would be like to think like one of these con artists? This ‘guide’ takes you on a brief and somewhat disturbing tour of how to approach cons and respond as a con artist would on the internet. Strange but interesting.

In most cases people would like to think they would at least know if they had been hacked even if they were unable to prevent it in the first place. However, many people remain completely oblivious to the fact that things as private and important as their email have become compromised. MakeUseOf has created a guide to making digital ‘tripwires’ so you’ll know if you have been hacked.
