"Never reply to the e-mails that offer lottery prize money. Always keep your anti-virus updated and do not download pictures of celebrities from mails sent by anonymous sender. Also avoid downloading songs from Pakistani wesbites. All these steps if taken can help a person in avoiding his personal information getting passed on to the hackers", informed Sunny further.
The cyber-expert further advised that people should avoid using pirated anti-virus softwares that are of no help and can't check a virus inside a computer.
He also advised that person should never disclose banking passwords or PINs on a website as that may get recorded with the wesbite that can be misused later.

"Such calls will originate from the cellphone of a person without his knowledge.

He concluded by saying that the threat e-mails originating from computers used by a hacker for some wrongful purpose can also be tracked and traced.
