Know about Phishing Websites..!!

I like to bring a note on Phishing Websites. This is one of the Misuse of Internet Technology. To be frank, Stealing Account Details like Credit Card Number, Username and Password of Internet Banking of an Innocent. Few days back i got a Spam mail addressing ICICI Bank requesting to Update my Profile Details of My Credit Card and a Link specified to Login to my account. Actually I dont have any Bank Account till now, I wonder why did they mail me. On my previous Search i found a Website Called Ipligence.com and dnschart.com. These two websites helps me to find whether the mail is fake on not. And using those Websites i was in Surprise that the Phishing Website looks the same as Actual ICICI Bank website. See the Picture below, then you may understand what i am trying to say.

Phishing Website:

Actual Website:

I hope you can understand what these frauds were trying to do with such websites. I tried a lot to find out how it works and found a cool thing they used behind this website design. For every website including every secured website, we are capable to get Source Code (Just Right Click on the Webpage and Select "View Source" - You will get the source code). So its easy to get a Genuine Webpage code. What these guys do is, they get the source code and host it in another location and get a domain name related to the original webpage name. For example (ICICI bank website : http://icicibank.com/ ,
the Fake ICICI Bank Website: http://icicibnk.0lx.net/verify.php (Phising Website - Be Safe to enter details to login column).

Once they host it, they get the control of buttons in that website and they are capable to route the links. Then one more website named MailMyForm.com. When your website has a form that can be filled by some persons, then you may sign in to MailMyForm.com and get Source codes to be used in your website. This works when anyone press the button filling the form in your webpage, then the whole form is mailed to your email. So this is the thing, the frauds use them for wrong activities. So, as usual you enter your Credit Card Details to that Phishing Website, it will be mailed to that Fraud Group without your Knowledge. So, the only idea you can use to aware about these websites is you should have a keen look to the website you are loging in. This blog is just to Create Awarness among the people who are not aware of Fake Websites. Also i like to suggest a Group to report about these Phishing websites. Take time to Visit: Anti-Phishing Working Group. I have already reported about this Phishing Website. Be Safe while you browse through internet. Happy Browsing..!!!

Communication Technology...!!!

Communication is one of the Advanced Technology that makes me communicate with the world through this Blog entry. That's the reason why i choose to write about Communication Technology and I am too communication engineer. Communication is the Basic method of being in Link and Information sharing. There wide categories in communication technology. Some of them are:

  • Mobile Communication,

  • Satellite Communication,

  • Wireless Communication,

  • Wired Communication,

  • Aerospace Communication,

  • Short-Wave Communication,

  • Long-Wave Communication,

  • Network Communication,

  • Telephone Communication and So on...!!!

The Basic Application of Communication is to Share information from One end to the other. This Communication is Effectively possible with help of the sender and receiver. The factors that determine effective communication are: Sender, Receiver, Medium of Communication & Information. Information is the precise data, to be carried to the receiver from the Sender. As per communication theory, the Precise data can be accessed only by the specific receiver that could addressed by the Sender. This Precise data can also be accessed by Specially equiped persons called Hackers. This Disadvantage of Communication was overcome by a special scheme called Security. This Scheme of Communcation technology sends the precise data to the exact Receiver in highly Secured way. This Security Scheme involves Cryptography Techniques for the Secured delivery of high precise data. I will publish more information regarding this.

How come you know about New Technologies?

As in my previous post, A Technology is a Scientific Method that prevails in our day-today life. So, Once you need to know about new technologies, I recommend to become a member of Scientific and Technology related societies like IEEE(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.), AWS (American Welding Society), ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education, FASTS (Federation of Australian Scientific and Technological Societies), OSA (Optical Society of America), FEAST (Forum of European-Australian Science and Technology), ISA (Instrument Society of America) and many more. These societies promote and conduct high qualified research activities. As a result of such researches, are the Technologies we handle in our real life now like Mechanical Instruments, Mobile Phones, Computers, High Speed Networks through Land and Space, etc.
These researches were either conducted virtually or physically according the resource availability. Also many of these societies were sponsered by Collabration of Research based companies and Research Institutes. Also for an Individual research works, these societies awards Patent rights and Recognition. Each Society has a Membership Area, so People of Interest in Learning Technoolgies related to their Departments can Apply for Membership directly through the websites of that particular society.
After becoming a member, as per the plan you have adopted, you would receive Mails, Magazines, Newsletters, etc about the Functions, Conferences Innovative Technologies, Patent Holders Details and their projects, etc periodically.

What is Technology?

While googleing around, i found lot of meanings about technology, I didnt get a clear definition for the word Technology. Also it is hard to quote an exact definition for Technology. In general Technology is a Scientific method of prolonged research that was made to help the Society to lead a sophisticated life. Here're some meanings of technology, while i gone through some websites.
  • The branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science.
  • The application of science, especially to industrial or commercial objectives.
