Fighting Back Against Illegal Email Spammers, Internet
Hackers, and other Web Thieves
Article Summary and Conclusion
We began this article with a definition of spamming and
hacking. Then we discussed how to defend your computer from spammers
and hackers. Finally we went through the details of identifying spammers
and hackers, and how to complain to ISPs and legal authorities.
Hopefully, now that you have a better understanding of
spammers and hackers, you will be able to defend yourself and your computer
from many types of illegal Internet activity. Some of you will be interested
and knowledgeable enough to make attempts to fight back against the
spammers and hackers.
I think the most important thing is to take some kind
of action against the spammers and hackers. Don't believe that by ignoring
spam or by using a firewall program that you have solved all your problems.
Yes, you are probably safe from spammers and hackers, but you are doing
nothing to make your family members and other relatives safe.
If everyone takes a little time to try to rid the Internet
of thievery, it will be a safer, more productive place. Who knows? Someday
maybe we will all be using our real email addresses again.
