People are already sick of physical stalkers lately, but more troublesome people are now the Cyberstalkers. Now, it is more common than physical harassment.

Hoaxers are similar to spammers but are more exaggerated. Do you get unexpected fake news on your email? If yes, please don’t fall for these hoaxes.

Hoaxers come in the form of hoax photos, email chain letters and exaggerated fake stories in the mailbox.
Do you get emails announcing that you’ve won 50 million dollars? Do you get exciting offer emails from different companies?

Cyberbullying or in other words digital harassment is not less than physical bullying. In simple terms, it’s like dominating other users by harassing them online. This is almost like going through public humiliation. It’s no more like a trivial teenage trend. This trend is actually causing deep trauma in people and has even led to suicides.
This is by far the dirtiest violation of privacy. Being zombied means, someone will install remote control programs onto your PC and then take over to use for bidding. When your machine becomes a zombie computer, it will perform hackers attack other websites as well.
Hackers come in varied versions. But, here we are trying to know what a modern-day computer hacker is? Well, there are basically four types of hackers in the world and not all of them are evil. If you also tinker with your PC, then you might be considered as a lowkey hacker yourself.
I don’t know why this is even a trend. Sexting is not bad if you’re a couple. But, stay clear of this game if you’re doing it with any random guy. It might get you into a world of humiliation. It can either embarrass you or defame you. Trust me, the viral risk included is hampering the youth by putting them down in the eyes of thousands of people. Don’t be a sexter and never play this game even if you are lured to the core.
