Hacking is the activity of identifying Nairobi

Hacking is the activity of identifying weaknesses in a computer system or a network to exploit the security to gain access to personal data or business data. An example of computer hacking can be: using a password cracking algorithm to gain access to a computer system.

Who is a Hacker?

A Hacker is a person who finds and exploits the weakness in computer systems and/or networks to gain access. Hackers are usually skilled computer programmers with knowledge of computer security.

Types of Hackers

Hackers are classified according to the intent of their actions. The following list classifies types of hackers according to their intent: White hat hacker


Ethical Hacker (White hat): A security hacker who gains access to systems with a view to fix the identified weaknesses. They may also perform penetration Testing and vulnerability assessments.

Cracker (Black hat): A hacker who gains unauthorized access to computer systems for personal gain. The intent is usually to steal corporate data, violate privacy rights, transfer funds from bank accounts etc.

Grey hat: A hacker who is in between ethical and black hat hackers. He/she breaks into computer systems without authority with a view to identify weaknesses and reveal them to the system owner.

Script kiddies: A non-skilled person who gains access to computer systems using already made tools.

Hacktivist: A hacker who use hacking to send social, religious, and political, etc. messages. This is usually done by hijacking websites and leaving the message on the hijacked website.

Phreaker: A hacker who identifies and exploits weaknesses in telephones instead of computers.

State-sponsored hackers/ Nation-State: actors aggressively target and gain persistent access to public and private sector networks to compromise, steal, change, or destroy information. They may be part of a state apparatus or receive direction, funding, or technical assistance from a nation-state.

Type of Cybercrime

The following list presents the common types of cybercrimes:

Computer Fraud: Intentional deception for personal gain via the use of computer systems.

Privacy violation: Exposing personal information such as email addresses, phone number, account details, etc. on social media, hacking a website, etc.

Identity Theft: Stealing personal information from somebody and impersonating that person.

Sharing copyrighted files/information: This involves distributing copyright protected files such as eBooks and computer programs etc.

Electronic funds transfer: This involves gaining an un-authorized access to bank computer networks and making illegal fund transfers.

Electronic money laundering: This involves the use of the computer to launder money.

ATM Fraud: This involves intercepting ATM card details such as account number and PIN numbers. These details are then used to withdraw funds from the intercepted accounts.

Denial of Service Attacks: This involves the use of computers in multiple locations to attack servers with a view of shutting them down.

Spam: Sending unauthorized emails. These emails usually contain advertisements.

What is Ethical Hacking?

Ethical Hacking is identifying weakness in computer systems and/or computer networks and coming with countermeasures that protect the weaknesses. Ethical hackers must abide by the following rules.


Get written permission from the owner of the computer system and/or computer network before hacking.

Protect the privacy of the organization been hacked.

Transparently report all the identified weaknesses in the computer system to the organization.

Inform hardware and software vendors of the identified weaknesses.


Why Ethical Hacking?

Information is one of the most valuable assets of an organization. Keeping information secure can protect an organization’s image and save an organization a lot of money.

Fake hacking can lead to loss of business for organizations that deal in finance such as PayPal. Ethical hacking puts them a step ahead of the cyber criminals who would otherwise lead to loss of business.

Legality of Ethical Hacking

Ethical Hacking is legal if the hacker abides by the rules stipulated in the above section on the definition of ethical hacking. The International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) provides a certification program that tests individual’s skills. Those who pass the examination are awarded with certificates. The certificates are supposed to be renewed after some time.

Wondering

If you are Asking, I don't Know


Why are you constantly trying to Measure my intelligence?

IQ which is not so common as you might know by now....

Fixated to recurring thoughts... Side by side wind blows... Shivers on my chest

She took my Phone to write a text message

I had some credit left... After one hour browsing keeping up with the trends...

But no was gazing at the moment wondering why...?

She might be throwing the tantrums this time round.

As you would presume I don't know

I actually don't wanna know at the moment...

Am far away past the Seven Seas

I see want they can't see

"Dumpsite Dummies "

Am over here claiming my Powers all this time I sacrificed under the Surface.... nightmares no sleep.

Gathering all I can find "Gold" they don't see... They have labeled me crazy....

I eat the Crazy... Am in Nairobi

"Janga la Mawe

Vijana wako juu ya Mawe... Kokoto

Wataokota Wakikosa kikosi

Polisi mistaken Identity yet niko na Identification card

I. D

Mimi si idle na jenga nchi

Lakini bei ya bidhaa Aaaa

Wanaumiza nyama, matumbo, tumbo, mwili hadi Tumaini"


All this time you have not been listening to me


Deaf ears haaiya...

We have talked about this a lot lately you don't pay attention....

~ When am talking to you

~Always on your phone all the time

They are keeping you company I See


How.... How would I be paying attention to this anyways

Will it pay my bills

Stima (electricity bills)


Silence fills the ambiance

Like we are waiting at doctor's bay

For our names to be called out


At this moment you bet we have already booked an appointment..

Gun blazing on our heads I mean

Noting the best points to oppose the opponent.


Cool down your temper and the Ego 2

Pride apart

You will fly higher than ... Kenya Airways

I was just Wondering....

Communication is key in each and every relationship.

Is World War 3 Imminent?: Russia’s defacto expansionist policy in eastern Ukraine !



Perhaps Hans Morgenthau ( 1948) was right when he opined that politics among Nations is entirely anchored on selfish interests and I suppose neither was John Mearsheimer ( 2001) wrong in his analogy that great powers will hardly agree on a common blueprint especially if their interests are at stake. The recent tensions between Moscow and Kyiv is not unprecedented especially from a realist point of view as opposed to a liberal standpoint.


Why Russia invaded Ukraine?


During the cold war paranoia in the 20th century that witnessed a worldwide computation for political influence between the Union of Soviet Socialists Republic ( USSR) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization ( NATO) alliance, Ukraine was part of the 15 states that made up USSR. Infact, Ukraine was pupported to be the second largest state after Russia. It is worth noting that Ukraine and Russia shared a pedigree of mutual relations to the point that in 1954 Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev gave Ukraine the Crimean peninsula so as to strengthen cordial relations between them. But when the Soviet Union collapsed during the abatement of the cold war, Ukraine got their own Independence in 1991. Subsequently, Ukraine began to strengthen ties with the West and gradually weaken ties with Russia sia. To add insult to injury, Ukraine decided to join NATO which Russia perceived as an existential security threat and in 2014 Russia annexed Crimea. Post – Crimea annexation has witnessed massive tensions between Moscow and Kyiv. This explains why Ukraine has been relentlessly trying to join NATO to balance Russia’s irredentism. Although Ukraine is only a partner and not a member of NATO, she stands the chance to gain from NATO’s guiding principle,” All for one and one for all”. This is to mean any attack on a NATO member is an attack to all members. Most of Moscow’s neighbouring countries like Latvia, Liuthania and others have joined NATO and maybe Russia feels it needs to flex its muscles to counter NATO influence in Eastern Europe.


Is World War 3 Imminent?


Samuel Huntington ( 1996) predicted that people’s cultural and religious identities will be the main source of conflict in the post – cold war world. But we are witnessing a paradigm shift in the nature of conflicts globally with inter – state and intra – state conflicts skyrocketing in almost equal proportion. Are they largely predicated on culture and religion? Partly yes. Forthrightingly, the possibility of conventional war in a unipolar world today is something that we have deemed unthinkable. Can the tensions between Moscow and Kyiv lead us to a world war 3? If we extrapolate our thinking based on how world war 2 began then it’s very difficult for one not to take this interstate conflict seriously. Of course the international milleau has changed over time but we cannot downplay the fact that power configuration in the international system is in a continuous state of flux and states are guided by selfish national interests.


Has International Law failed?


On 23rd February 2022 the United Nations security council convened a meeting to discuss Moscow – Kyiv tensions which is a threat to international peace and security. 11 security council members voted to condemn Russia and called for an end to Russia’s defacto expansionism into eastern Ukraine. Russia who is a member of the security council vetoed while India, China and the United Arab Emirates abstained. Will Russia respect the final decision of the security council?

International law has attracted a lot of criticisms with many contemplating that International law is on its death bed. But the questions that we need to ask ourselves is ; how would the world be if it was completely anarchical? If the law of the jungle was to prevail, what would the world look like? What if there was no jus cogens, opinio juris, jus gentium, jus in bello, jus adbellum, post – adbellum and international humanitarian law? Well I’m not trying to justify that international law has been entirely effective. But with the rising threats to international peace and security, we need international law more than ever before.


Which way for Ukraine – Russia conflict?


Moscow and Ukraine must respect the Minsk declaration that happened back in 2014 and settle their differences amicably. War as an instrument of foreign policy in this case is unthinkable. It was Eleanor Roosevelt who said that there are no winners in war. For us to end the crisis in Kyiv, both regional and global cooperations must work together to enable a smooth peace process. A rapprochement between Moscow and Kyiv will also bring NATO to the table and negotiate with Russia. If compromise will bring peace in the region so be it. In the final analysis we need to fully embrace preventive diplomacy in the 21st century and I think maybe if principled negotiations were given a first hand priority, maybe things wouldn’t have escalated this far between Moscow and Kyiv.

В Казани сотрудники спецподразделений Росгвардии провели показательное занятие для студентов юридического института


Сотрудники казанского ОМОН и СОБР Управления Росгвардии по Республике Татарстан организовали экскурсию и выездное занятие для студентов казанского филиала Всероссийского государственного университета юстиции.

В преддверии празднования Дня Победы в расположении ОМОН «Ак Барс» Управления Росгвардии по РТ состоялось выездное военно-патриотическое занятие для студентов казанского филиала Всероссийского государственного университета юстиции. В проведении занятий приняли участие также сотрудники СОБР «Тимер Батыр» и кинологи МВД по Республике Татарстан. Будущие юристы, большинство из которых проходят обучение на кафедре уголовного процесса и криминалистики, задавали много вопросов и интересовались различными подробностями.

Студентам показали практическую работу кинологов с собаками при поиске запрещённых веществ, опасных предметов, а также при задержании преступников. Затем вниманию гостей представили выставку вооружения и специальной техники спецподразделения Росгвардии, подробно рассказали о назначении и особенностях каждого элемента экспозиции. Сотрудники СОБР продемонстрировали мастерство в высотной подготовке, выполнив эффектные спуски с 20-метрового здания.

«Для нас было очень важно провести выездные занятия именно в боевом подразделении Росгвардии, чтобы студенты лично пообщались с правоохранителями, которые стоят на переднем крае борьбы с преступностью и терроризмом», - отметил доцент кафедры уголовного процесса и криминалистики Газинур Хуснетдинов.

В завершение мероприятия с гостями провели патриотическую беседу и показали документальный фильм о войсках национальной гвардии Российской Федерации.
