In a situation like this, however well intentioned, giving the wrong advice is worse than giving no advice at all.
Yes, it would take years for Drillakilla, he can't even install a program on his own laptop atm ....I'm just pointing out the facts.
From the horses mouth:
IT security is technical, you must possess technical intelligence which is used investing time to build up experience & understanding of multi layered computer systems...it takes time, but we're talking about anti-IT-surveillance which is another level again, really you need a deep knowledge of IT to go there, that's why so many people superstitiously download useless apps like malwarebytes to do it for them or why they install security which they'll never work out how to configure properly, it worked for them last year with that porn virus so it must also work in this situation, it's a keylogger so it will get detected ...errr No!
That's quite the retarded comment ...aptitude is only acquired through practical application over time & yes it takes years, not only that but it requires you to keep your hand in and keep updating what you think you know.
Funny how after twenty years of trying you have zero success in hacking win admin which in terms of difficulty I would rank as entry level beginner, a gimme if you like ....where is your aptitude in this matter?
Only acquired through practical application over time? Oh, right. So, that's why, back in the 70's when I started in DP (Data Processing not the other DP, which only later became ICT, then IT) companies, local governments and other government agencies, like the old Coal Board, gave applicants an 'Aptitude Test' as the first step in recruitment, with those who passed going on to interview. In those days they took a few different forms, but the most widely used one was called 'QUIS', Questions Using Instruction Sequences. Obviously, they wanted to recruit people who take time and experience to acquire the aptitude to do the job effectively, rather than ascertaining that applicants have that aptitude from the word 'Go'. Silly me.
Having gone on to explain to us that IT security is 'technical' (well, shit, I never realised), and that, 'you need a deep knowledge of IT to go there', all you do is recommend ESET, which is, from a quick Google of their website, just another anti-virus. Like McAffee, Sophos, Kaspersky, Symantec, Avast.......pick your own flavour. Oh, that's right, you have. No talk of Security Policies or registry hacks to deny access to menus, dialog boxes, navigation panes or anything like that.
Cracking Win passwords? I said I hadn't ever cracked one in a few minutes. I also said I never tried too hard because there was more money in sucking my teeth and saying, 'Ohhh, it needs rebuilding, really.'
I know what I do for a living. I know how much my employers pay me, and I know how much they value the quality of the job I do by the amount of money they've given me over the last two years to see us through a huge, long overdue network infrastructure update and migration. I know how many Support Engineers I've trained down the years and I know how many other contracts and roll-outs I've led on.
I also know that sharing a pc doesn't work.
Yeah, you're another one.
