Password Protect Your Modem/Router Before You Get Hacked

Start protecting your modems/routers before hackers dSploit it.
Yes ! dSploit is an android application that allows hackers to steal your passwords and hijack session right from your browser. They are able to see what websites you are browsing and are able to redirect you to an other website. They are also able to disconnect you from the network. They are able to do many other things. Therefor, make sure your modems/routers are password protected. Give your modem/router password to trusted ones only.

If you are thinking that an antivirus can protect you from this attack, well you are wrong. If you are browsing your online bank account, they are able to gain access to your bank account without you even knowing. They could use the session from your browser to transfer money into an other bank account.

If you are using an internet connection that other people are using, consider your self as a target. Try to avoid visiting websites such as your bank account & Paypal accounts from a network that is shared amung other users. Mostly hotels and restaurants provide internet/free wifi that is shared amung other users. It is not safe to browse sensitive websites on those networks since its shared. Many people may not know about this, but share this with your friends and loved ones before they are compromised.
