Can Emails Be Hacked?

Yes. As a matter of fact, almost anything can be hacked in the Internet. The problem is that email accounts are the repositories were people store their private information or even their business data. It is a quite serious condition and most of the mail providers have taken some measures for stopping it. Unfortunately, users don't take them seriously and they don't follow the precautions.

There are several methods for hacking yahoo, msn or AOL email accounts. One of these methods is social engineering. Considered a revolutionary art among the hacker community, it has proven to be an interesting tool that can be exploited by anyone.

Social engineering consists in the ability to trick someone in believing that he is giving information to someone who has the authority to ask for it. The most common way to do it is through the telephone or via the internet. Let's say that a user receives a call from someone who identifies himself as a system administrator of his company and that he requires some information that could be considered harmless.

It's quite probable that that bit of information is the final piece that the hacker required for finishing his work. Something as innocent as when was the last time that the system asked the user to change his password could be used by him in his advantage.

A quite ingenious method within social engineering was a webpage were users required to enter their mail and password for finding if someone had deleted or blocked them from their Instant Messenger (IM). Unfortunately, many fell under this scheme. Hacking yahoo messenger or any other messenger is quite easy if you find how to exploit the user's needs.
