In such situations you need to buy your freedom for exchange of a ransom.
It sounds bizarre and almost like a science fiction but it starts taking place in our day-to-day life.

A Humble approach to my books…

First, it was a mail from Pramila Balan, the acquisition editor of Apress. They wanted to publish my book on ethical hacking.
After a few more conversations they finally decided to publish two books – another one about Laravel that has been in the market nearly for a year or more.
My Books in Apress
I saw the whole development as a warning from my creator, probably the last warning; that simply says: grow up, life is too short and there are so many things to do.

How to stay anonymous in web

That might seem a little bit confusing for some people. The question is : why should I stay anonymous?
Practically normal users don’t bother about this and their data are – normally being tracked. There are lot of reasons – of course; for collecting users data. We don’t want any debate on that presently. Because this article is not meant for the normal users but for the people who want to learn “Ethical Hacking”.
Please remember, ethical hacking stands for pure learning a computer system and creating something new. It is not meant for “Cracking” others system or stealing data illegally. What you would do, you ‘should do’ legally.
