Re: Accessing the laptop of a stranger remotely

I don't know if hackers can get into your system without some sort of permission or not, but I do know that they often use certain websites that are designed just for that purpose, to gain remote control over someone else's machine. They usually have to have you input some data or go to that site yourself in order for this to work. But once inside your computer, they have access to pretty much everything, which is very scary.

Would such access not constitute hacking? I won't want to do this.

Yes it absolutely would constitute hacking and you are wise to steer clear of it.

They can easily obtain user names and passwords for anything you do online and divert any money transacted to themselves.


Is this as easy as you make it to sound? I mean. Supposing a hacker obtains my online banking password, is it this breezy to withdraw my cash?

I have heard that sometimes,viruses and worms that makes ur system vulnerable to attacks are usually put inside some essential apps so that whenever u download such apps,you are indirectly giving hackers unlimited access to your computer.
