I feel like most of the people saying they have been hacked are only paranoid. While most of the people who actually have been hacked do not notice it at all.

@Peter Sorry to wake you up, but we all are specifically targeted for surveillance. Google "Full Take". Today's surveillance targets everybody, everywhere at anytime. But you are right you can not protect yourself from those kind of attacker. I was not talking about "them". GSM is broken, DECT is broken, land lines are not encrypted, so why would you think your phone call is secure? Everybody can listen to your calls if he likes to.

Do not read the secret key over the phone. Your phone is most likely not secure.

@dgn It is quite common having multiple users using the same IP. Companies, Proxy, people sharing internet, ... IPv4 is just not enough.

comment JavaScript Injection using Man in the Middle Attack
@Curious First have a look how http works‌​. I linked to the server response. This is what the server tmail.com sends back to you. Here the script is injected. Now you need to know how TCP/IP works. The data (server response) is send as a TCP/IP packet from the server to you passing several router. Run traceroute tmail.com to see them. Every router can modify the data in the packet. See Man-in-the-middle.

@Curious Not sure what you like to know here. You read until you hit a </html> tag and insert you <script> infront of it.

comment JavaScript Injection using Man in the Middle Attack
If you connected to a wifi everything you download is "downloaded" by the wifi router and forwarded to you. The WiFi access point can modify this data on the fly as it pass through.
