How to Avoid Hackers, part I

Avoiding hackers might seem easy but it's not. In Stardoll, there are thousands of girls being hacked daily, because they fall into hackers and scammer's traps. Today, there are lots of tools hackers can use; from key loggers to fake proxies to fake offers. We'll cover them all in different posts.

Today we are seeing the easiest and most used hacking form, the fake offers. I can't remember how many times I've seen"Free DKNY", "Free Miley Cyrus Clothes", "Free Stardollars!" and "Free makeovers" in presentations, broadcasts or comments.

This offers are never true! Do not trust them and anyone who says it's true! If you think they might be true, create a fake account and give the user your password to see if it works. If you cannot acces your account later (you've been hacked) or if it doesn't, well, now you know.

Keep tuned for more!
