But how do they steal my password? Well the possibilities are many! The most ‘frequent use of a password is too easy to guess … many users for simplicity, use passwords like “12345678″ or your name or phone number propio … nothing more ‘wrong! Always use password “complicated” or words without meaning. An example can ‘be’ magma5500 “or” fiat77opel …
Another common method for stealing the password is that of social engineering: the person who wants to send you your password, by pretending to be an engineer at Microsoft, asking for your personal data, or sends you the email link for a page “camouflaged” (fake login) very similar to MSN, where you are invited to enter “user” and “password”. Never, ever, Microsoft will contact you to get your data! And always pay attention when you enter your personal information over the Internet, checking the address of the website. In this manner also could go back to your “secret question”.
Always pay attention to the computer that stores your passwords! especially on your home computer, you always put a password for access. Anyone with a USB key configured to steal all the passwords in a computer using special software, can ‘the rubarvela less than a minute!
Pay attention to spyware running on the net! Circulating several programs that promise to run special features and amazing for your Messenger … in fact, once installed, will fill your PC from viruses, worms and Trojans and withdraw your MSN password and sends it to the creator of the malicious software. Always download software from trusted sources like this site and the official website of Microsoft.

NEVER MSN PLUS script posted by your friends or by malicious web sites because circulating malicious script once imported can steal your password as well as being able to do damage to your PC.

All scripts are sure of MSN Plus is available on the official database. In this case, the very people most ‘unexpected that can work around them. Trust is good, not to trust is better!
Another method used to steal your password, is to exploit the Winks: these are special files used on Messenger that use flash technology, but which, if properly modified, can take your passwords with a simple submission. If you do not feel safe, you can disable the receipt of Winks directly between the options of the Messenger (Microsoft claims to have solved the bugs from version 8.5 of msn).
Finally, we mark a final method, called Brute Force. It is probably the least used, given the unreliability and the considerable time it takes. This method is nothing more than a software test tens of thousands of passwords automatically, using a “dictionary” which contains many words. Again, it will be sufficient to have the foresight to use an alphanumeric password is meaningless to waste time at the pirate guy.
Finally, be sure to use an alpha-numeric password is meaningless and difficult to guess, beware the phantom Msn technicians who ask you your personal data, secure access to your computer and you use only secure software downloaded from official
NB: I forgot my password, but fortunately it is saved on your computer. How can I remember it? Very simple, there is a software stand-alone “which is called MessenPass that you remember passwords stored on your PC.
