Identity Theft and Organized Crime

Many identity thieves have a personal connection to victims, and they can even be family members, friends, employers or employees. Not all do, however, as they can also be total strangers who stole your mail, went through your trash or even come from a foreign country.

Why do these criminals do this? People who practice identity theft are usually driven by mental illness, desperation or greed. Some, however, are also organized criminals who will do what it takes to steal the money of others.

Hackers across the globe use tools to access databases that contain valuable information such as:

  • Birth dates
  • Credit card numbers
  • Social Security numbers
  • Home and business addresses
  • Bank account information

These people break into the networks that store this information, steal the data, and then use it to take over existing accounts. In only one day, they can make changes to a victim’s credit card account, transfer money and even take everything.

One of the most notorious cybercriminals in history is Albert Gonzalez. He began with reign of cyber terror at the age of 12, when his home computer became infected with a virus. By learning how to protect his computer from invasions, he also learned how to make a profit from them.

By the age of 14, Gonzalez was regularly using stolen account information to buy things online. He eventually hacked into the servers at NASA, and even after a visit from FBI agents at his school, he did not slow down.

Gonzalez was finally arrested at the age of 22 while at an ATM. He was wearing a woman’s wig, had a fake nose ring, and was using several debit cards in order to obtain cash. Police soon realized who he was, however, and had the leader of a cyber gang in their grasp.

Following his arrest, police convinced Gonzalez to turn on his gang, but he also was a double agent, of sorts.

While helping authorities to capture other cyber criminals, he was continuously stealing, and even pulled off a scheme to have into the network of ATMs at 7-Eleven.

When all was said and done, Gonzalez received A 20-year prison sentance, and it was found that he had access to more than 180 million debit and credit card accounts.

How Hacking is Done

So how do people like Gonzalez hack others? They use a number of different hardware and software, known as penetration-testing tools, to seek out any holes within a network. These holes may be found in an operating system or Internet connection. Hackers also commonly look for vulnerabilities within Internet browsers.

Approximately 15 years ago, criminals began creating viruses that got into a computer, deleted files or crashed hard drives. Today, this is no longer the case. These days, hackers want computers to run smoothly, and the viruses can sit dormant in the hard drive until they become activated in some way. For instance, a modern Trojan may have a design that detects when victims are doing online banking. At this point, they strike.

A virus can easily attack a computer without the operator knowing simply by visiting a website, clicking a link in an email or downloading a certain program.

These are the most common ways to get a virus on your computer, but there are many others. The latest studies should that the number of computer viruses have quadrupled over the past couple of years. On top of this, the criminal hackers will use technology that is brand new and evolving at a faster rate than the technology used by those who are trying to stop the viruses. This is why we should do all we can to protect our computers from viruses.

Shodan a Search Engine for Hackers

Many people have described Shodan as a search engine for hackers, and have even called it “the world’s most dangerous search engine”. It was developed by John Matherly in 2009, and unlike other search engines, it looks for specific information that can be invaluable to hackers. John Matherly is an Inernet Cartographer, hence the shodan.

Shodan is a type of search engine that allows users to search for Internet-connected devices and explicit website information such as the type of software running on a particular system and local anonymous FTP servers. Shodan can be used much in the same way as Google, but indexes information based on banner content, which is meta-data that servers send back to hosting clients. For the best results, Shodan searches should be executed using a series of filters in a string format.

So in conclusion we can say that, Shodan is a search engine for finding specific devices, and device types, that exist online. It is like an internet map that lets us see which device is connected to which or ports are open on a specific device or what operating system a certain system is using, etc. Rather than to locate specific content on a particular search term, SHODAN is designed to help the user find specific nodes (desktops, servers, routers, switches, etc.) with specific content in their banners.

What Shodan can do?

Shodan pulls service banners from servers and devices on the web, mostly port 80, but also ports 21 (ftp), 22 (SSH), 23 (telnet), 161 (SNMP), and 5060 (SIP). Since almost every new device now has a web interface (maybe even your refrigerator) to ease remote management, we can access innumerable web-enabled servers, network devices, home security systems, etc. Shodan can find us webcams, traffic signals, video projectors, routers, home heating systems, and SCADA systems that, for instance, control nuclear power plants and electrical grids. If it has a web interface, Shodan can find it! Although many of these systems communicate over port 80 using HTTP, many use telnet or other protocols over other ports. Keep that in mind when trying to connect to them.

How to use Shodan?

Understanding shodan is very important at first you might find it complex but once yu get to know it you will find it very handy in use and  very resourcefull too. So, now let us learn how to work with fasinating search engine. To use shodan to your advantage you have

Follow the steps to register. After registration a link will be sent to your e-mail ID for your activation of account on Shodan. Once your account is activated login to Shodan and now that you are logged in you are free to search anything.

Here are some examples for which you can use shodan to search up the things you want.


When you search for webcam, it will show you all the webcam present in the world. It will show the results as shown in the image below :

Traffic Signals

Searching about traffic signals or traffic signals camera then it will show you all the traffic surveillance camera present.


Searching about cisco will show you all the cisco routers in the world but you can search them by country. Like, here, i have found cisco routers in India and result is below image :


You can also search about Scada and you will get its information around the whole world as shown :


Shodan can also show you about all the netcams in world and you can access them too with your hacking skills.


Shodan even lets you find all the GPS devices all over the world and for this you just have to type gps in the search box.


Not only the devices but it can help find which port is open in which device. For example I have here searched port : 1723. Now we all know this port is used for VPN so through this we can know which device is using VPN as shown in image below :

When you search for port : 3389 it will show the operating system used by the device too which can be very useful.

This is how Shodan is useful for hackers as it gives all the information necessary to collect that too all over the world. And so you can manipulate this information as you desire.

You can use your smartphone as a PC controller using a smartphone app and PC app combo called Unified Remote.

The app you install in your phone talks to the server app you installed in your PC. The mobile app sends

mouse, keyboard, and other remote control-type input to the server app.

 The features offered by Youtube and VLC media player to stream media on to PC and control it from your smartphone is good. But these features are limited with only a set of things you can do. The best way to deal with this problem is to use your smartphone as a mouse and keyboard.
