Found some fake yahoo hackers!!!!!!!!
Just for fun I was searching various newsgroups
There i got some people who told ridiculous ways of
hacking yahoo mail
They said to write the Mail address of victim and
then our own mail id and password in some special format
and the send to some email
like firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.
and claimed we will get it in one hour
but what they really do is make their own id by some
secure name and claim to be of yahoo admins.
So be careful guys to not to give your password like this to them....

We have all seen this. It has been posted several times.
If you fall for that, you deserve it. You shouldn't be trying to crack others e-mail accounts.
I think that most people are aware at the different ways of social eng. techniques.
This is just a lame attempt at it.
If you want to learn about social eng., why not learn from one of the most infamous?
Kevin Mitnick has a good book about it called The Art of Deception. It is a real eye opener.
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
