Hackers, they are the people that use various software to track down your passwords, user names, bank account numbers and so on.
Viruses, they are the malicious software that do various things to your computer, without your permission.
Trojans are quite similar to the viruses, however, they can be used to track down your passwords and so on.
Phishing is the same as racketeering, but it happens virtually, over the Internet.
Trusting people you shouldn't trust can lead you to giving the bank details to people you shouldn't trust

Website security is the branch of internet security related directly to websites (as the name suggests). Common website security issues include:
Validation of input and output data. The issues is that all data that enter or leaves the website must be of a valid type that is safe for both the user and host server.
Direct data access. If data exists, it can and will be viewed and extracted. This includes personal information and banking information.
Data poisoning. This is the modification of data, such as wiping a websites blacklist of blocked IPs.
Malicious file execution. This can mean user generated content designed to directly damage the website, or its security system.
Authentication and session management. If a user manages to alter his session/authentication credentials, they could potentially access services/information that they shouldn't by rights.
The following are solutions to many of the problems that a website or server may suffer from; Keep programs up to date , build up your passwords include a mix of numbers and letters , Lock down file permissions, Check your links and use SSL for emails, and PHP. If an IP is known to cause trouble, blacklisting their IP can keep them out. To give your website the best security, switching to VPS security is your best bet. It is separate from other sites, gives you firewalls and allows you to create your own security measures.
The main threat to server integrity is the hacker. Recent developments like remote access make the server ever more vulnerable than before.
