News : Syrian Hackers Launches Several Attacks Against Western Media


A group called ‘The Syrian Electronic Army’ has been targeting various news organizations in their recent hacking attacks. One of the publications that became the latest victim of these cyber intrusions is the renowned publication ‘The Guardian’.

The Associated Press did not escape the toll as it also got hit by the hacking assaults led by the same group. The said onslaught caused their stocks to tremendously go down and their operations to suffer major setbacks.

Other media organizations that became previous targets include the BBC, the National Public Radio in the U.S., and the France 24 TV. The said Syrian Army claims to have staged the mentioned hacking assaults primarily to spread support for the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

According to cybersecurity experts, the high-profile hacks launched by SEA are aimed to cause disruption and embarrassment to draw the attention of the public. They have it that such disruptive advances may continue to bombard sites that provide an avenue to forward their propaganda.

Western intelligence agencies further suspect that SEA might be a proxy for an administration which may have been widely condemned due to their savage efforts to subdue an internal insurgence. Although their victim trail seemed random, it appears that SEA was focusing on Western media.

In this light, the widely used networking site Twitter distributed emails to news organizations warning them about the mentioned hacking outbreak. Twitter also called for these media establishments to look into their internal security measures in dealing with social media.
The popular social network encouraged media entities to utilize only one computer for their Twitter usage. Such mechanism will help safeguard their log-in credentials and keep them from spreading around.

Moreover, Twitter also advised these media establishments not to use their Twitter accounts to access the Internet or open email communications. This is to reduce the possibility of malware infection and other cyber attacks.
The networking site also encouraged the media to work hand in hand with the Twitter team to keep account details updated and protected. Twitter management said that they are continuously working to update their information on their partner accounts.

Even before this recent hacking outbreak, there has been an increasing pressure on the said social network already to further bolster their internal security. Experts from around the world are also calling for a two-factor authentication that would require two steps in verifying Twitter accounts.

Latest reports from the technology magazine ‘Wired’ suggested that Twitter has already been initiating trial launches of the mentioned two-factor authentication technology. But confirmation from the networking site itself is still at bay.

While industry experts have been pointing out that the two-factor authentication method for Twitter could prove costly, ideas from external sources on raising funds for the said enhanced security version have been coming out. 

Social Networking Secrets: How to Friend Someone On Facebook and Hide it From Your Status Updates


While it is no longer a biggie nowadays to learn of people’s whereabouts through social networking sites, many of you may still need that much needed privacy. After all, there are things that you’d prefer to keep to yourself no matter how simple or little these maybe.
So, you have found a person who you think is interesting. With that in mind, you decided to add him or her as a friend on Facebook. But then the thing is that you would not want other people to know that you actually added that person.

The reason for wanting such can be endless. It maybe that you got a crush on that person and you don’t want your buddies to know that you actually made the move to add that someone on your friend’s list. Or, it can be that you are adding someone who your other friends actually dislike.

Whatever the reason you may have, the most important thing is that you will be able to accomplish your goal. So, how do you really add someone as a friend on Facebook and prevent it from appearing on your status updates? Here are simple steps that would do the trick:

1.    Go to your Facebook homepage and click on the ‘Update Status’ box.
2.    On the lower right corner of the box, hover your mouse on the ‘Friends’ icon.
3.    On the ‘Friends’ icon, kindly click the drop-down arrow. 
4.   The following options will then be displayed on the drop-down menu: Public, Friends, Only Me, Custom, Close Friends, Family, and See all lists…
5.    Kindly click on ‘Custom’
6.    After clicking on ‘Custom’, a pop-up box will then appear.
7.    On the pop-up box, look for the ‘x’ icon labeled ‘Don’t share this with’
8.    Right below that is the entry ‘These people or lists:’ with a rectangular box right beside it.
9.    On that box, you can then choose which of your friends should not get notified of any of your status updates. 
10. Once you have entered the name of the people you do not want to see your status updates, you can then click on ‘Save Changes’.

Presto! The next time you add a friend or do anything that would merit a status update, those persons will never have a clue of what you did. So, you can now go add anyone you find interesting without having to worry about a single thing! How great is that!
See? Your social networking site does not have to be an open book for the entire world to see. You can always play around with its settings and do some adjustments according to your personal preferences. That is how technology works today!





Other Techniques - DNS Spoofing & Botnets


With more than 800 million ‘Facebookers ’ actively connecting online, anyone can be targeted by hackers. However, users themselves can become hackers as well for common reasons such as suspicion of a cheating partner, monitoring children, revenge, or recovery of a hacked account.
There are several ways to hack somebody’s Facebook account. Four of the most common methods are phishing, keylogging, social engineering, and cookie stealing. Although these techniques proved to be very effective, there are also other ways to gain access to Facebook accounts. Here are some of them:
Stealers
Many users, approximately around 80%, tend to store their passwords in their browser so that they can easily log in to their account. Although convenient, this behaviour can also be very useful for hackers to get into the victim’s profile. Stealers are programs made to catch saved passwords in the browser.
Even from anywhere, the hacker can easily steal secret codes from the computer whether the victim is using Opera, Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and most types of Messengers. It can even steal product keys or bank accounts if the hacker intends to. The bad news (and the good news), is that people can download it online for a good amount.
Sidejacking with Firesheep
Although this technique only became popular in 2010, many are still using it for their own purpose. However, this method only works when both victim and hacker is on the same Wifi roof. Hence, targets are mostly Wifi users around the area. Through Firesheep, the hacker can control any account even without knowing the password, username, and other log in keys of the target site profile.
DNS Spoofing
This can be carried out if both user and hacker are on the same network. What it does is that the attacker changes the Facebook log in page into his or her own page. Victims can never tell the fake from the original as the hacker’s page looks perfectly similar to Facebook’s homepage. The data is introduced into the server’s cache database, which diverts traffic to the attacker’s computer and causes name server to return a fake IP address.
Botnets
This is very similar to keylogging, but more sophisticated as it can provide the attacker with additional options in hacking compromised computers. However, this technique is more expensive than other methods and rarely being used to access Facebook accounts.
Mobile Phone Hacking
Smartphones are not safe as well since a lot of software is designed to get into the social networking site accounts. Attackers can gain access to the victim’s mobile phones through android apps and other software programs.
These are just some of the choices that you can make for your own end. However, each technique has its own limitation. Make sure to use them appropriately based on your need.

Not-So-Private Facebook Profiles


As much as you would love to show off your hacking skills on Facebook, you cannot because hack codes do not really work with the social network. Well, at least, not that long. The site changes rules so often, thus making it very difficult for hacking enthusiasts. Facebook designers tinker with its features and links at whim so, it is hard to tell until when specific hack codes would actually work.
But viewing private profiles is just one of the most in-demand hacks these days. Suppose there is someone whose profile you would like to see. Unfortunately, they have blocked you for one reason or another. Well, at least on this aspect, it is quite easy to play around Facebook’s rules. Here is a step-by-step method:
First, make sure you are logged in to your own Facebook account. Second, search for the person whose profile you want to view. Third, find the person’s identification number (usually found at the end of the URL) by clicking on the Send Messages button. Fourth, copy the identification number and replace it on this link:
javascript:(function(){function y(){if(x.readyState==4) {q=x.responseText.substring(9);p=eval(‘(‘+q+’)');document.getElementById(‘tab_canvas’).innerHTML=p.payload.tab_content;}}x=window.XMLHttpRequest?new window.XMLHttpRequest:(window.ActiveXObject?new ActiveXObject(“MSXML2.XMLHTTP”):null);x.onreadystatechange=y;x.open(‘POST’,'http://www.facebook.com/ajax/profile/tab.php’,true);x.send(‘id=’+ProfileURIController._profileId+’&v=photos&__a=1′);})()
Finally, copy and paste the resulting link to your browser.
With these steps, you should be able to view ten (10) to twenty (20) pictures before Facebook will be able to detect the hack and deny you access to the profile.
Now, if all that you want to do is view a person’s profile picture, which you cannot see due to the privacy settings chosen by the user, the steps to override this setting are also very simple. You just have to go to the user’s timeline and click on the profile picture. Once the image URL appears, copy it and paste it to the address bar of the new browser tab. Then, simply remove the “s160x160” (without the quotes) from the URL and be sure to retain only one slash (/). Once you hit Enter, you will see the full version of the person’s profile picture. Pretty, cool isn’t it?
Still, there is another easy way to temporarily access private accounts, and that is by sending the user a message. Once the person replies, that is your cue to temporary access. It is just a matter of convincing the account owner to send you back a message.
Indeed, unlike other social networking websites, Facebook is rather hard to tweak. It is good in the sense that it saves people from having to bear with pages that have instant music and tasteless flashing backgrounds. Nonetheless, there are a few rules you can get around with, and sometimes it is all about timing. But it will only be a matter of time before designers will figure out the loopholes and patch them up.

New Facebook Hacking Technology: Facebook Password Hacker v.3.5


Hacking Facebook accounts has become rather popular along the years. There are many reasons for why people often resort to the act. It could be that they simply have forgotten their passwords or perhaps, they wanted to check the online activities of their partners and kids. Others have more malicious reasons though, as with taking revenge on certain people or playing pranks on friends and colleagues.

There are also a lot of methods for hacking Facebook accounts. The easiest is keylogging. Other people consider phishing, DNS spoofing, session hijacking, and social engineering. However, these methods require a certain level of hacking skills which not all people have.

This is mainly why many companies and hackers have developed software technologies that make hacking profiles much easier. One of the latest software available is the Facebook Password Hacker version 3.5.

What is FacebookPassword Hacker v.3.5?

The Facebook Password Hacker is a type of multi-functional hacking software that can be used to hack Facebook account passwords. Users only need to run this software and it will automatically retrieve the password information desired. Yes, it has become that easy to retrieve and access Facebook accounts.

This software program has been designed to help individuals who have troubles accessing Facebook accounts. All they really need to secure is the Facebook ID or the email address of their target profiles.

Specifics:

  • Price: $39.00
  • OS: Vista 7 and 8, XP, Mac
  • File: 7.83 MB, MSI
  • Version: 3.5
Why Should I Pay for this Hacking Software?

There are indeed many sites that offer hacking services for free but it is important to note that a huge number of these are frauds. Usually, when downloading programs, users are not protected by any password.

This makes their computers susceptible to infections. ‘Black hackers’ take advantage of this and build their botnets, a collective network of infected computer units, which can be programmed to perform tasks from retrieving private user data to attacking other people’s websites with DDos.

It could bring great benefits to avoid downloading free programs as much as possible. In case these have already been installed in computers though, owners might want to check for malicious activities with their Antivirus or uninstall the shady system.

Ethical Hacking

It is not surprising to encounter people who have negative reasons for delving into the act of hacking. Most of us might simply be curious as to what our husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, sons and daughters are doing over the internet. But there will always be others who will hack for law breaking purposes.

It is important to know that using the Facebook Hacker v.3.5 software for illegal business will most likely entail negative consequences. Everyone should exercise responsibility for their actions, especially when hacking.

Easy Trick for Hacking Your Friend’s Facebook Account


A lot of people have been going on about hacking Facebook accounts. Many think it is necessary to have extensive knowledge on HTML coding as with IT professionals. Others go so far as learn about social engineering, cookie stealing, keylogging and phishing. These are very common hacking methods but some do not work as well as they did before anymore.

To the average individuals, hacking accounts is difficult. Facebook has now started shelling out funds to improve their security systems and further guarantee user information safety. The new password recovery feature was their latest call. Despite the continuous struggle though, this newly developed security system was still found to have some loopholes. These security holes are what a lot of users are now taking advantage of to gain control of other people’s accounts.

If there are some important things you want to access in your friend’s account or if you’re simply thinking of doing a prank, then you might want to consider this simple hacking trick.

  1. Create three fake Facebook accounts and have your target accept the friend requests from these accounts.
  1. In the main log in page, click the “Forgot Your Password?” option.
  1. You will be asked two things afterwards:
a.    Email, phone or Facebook username
b.    Your name and one friend’s name
Make sure that you know these details and fill up the spaces.

  1. You will then be asked how you want to have your password reset, whether through email or text. Discard the options and instead choose the “No longer have access to these” option below.
  1. Enter your new email address.
  1. You will have to answer a security question next. It would be great if you know the correct response but if not, simply fill in with incorrect answers three times.
  1. Because you incorrectly answered, Facebook security will proceed on to the recovery feature using trusted friends. You will be asked to pick 3 friends from the friend list. Select the 3 fake accounts that you made.
  1. Your fake accounts will then be sent security codes. Enter one when required for password resetting.
  1. Open your new email and obtain the new password.

There are also other people who will opt to make use of popular hacking tools. Among the most recent and popular ones available are Revealer Keylogger which can monitor keystrokes on systems, and Facebook Password Recovery which can retrieve Facebook passwords and other account information. For the latter, you will have to access the victim’s account using his PC though.

Hacking your friend’s Facebook account may not be as legally risky as hacking Swedish state agencies which Gottfrid Svartholm, founder of The Pirate Bay, just recently did. However, if you deem it will cause a huge uproar, then you might want to put it off or perhaps, do it to someone else.  

Popular Hacking Tool NMAP: Exploit or Protect?


NMAP or the Network Mapper is a tool which has long been used for port scanning and network mapping. It is a must-have for a lot of security and network administrators who constantly scan ports to detect potential vulnerabilities. It is also often employed for attacking systems though. Combined with popular hacking methods like phishing, keylogging, or cookie stealing, it can target computer activities whether logging on to emails or social networking sites like Facebook.

There are two main reasons why the NMAP has picked up popularity in the industry. First, it is very easy to use and second, it has a wide range of uses.

Uses

  • Scanning

There are three basic scans that can be performed on ports using the NMAP.

  1. SYN Scan is the most basic and common scan used for computer ports. Results may come faster when compared to others, but these can be really general as well.

  1. FIN Scan allows for the detection of weak firewalls and filtered packets. It also warns attackers should they need to create stealth when attacking victim networks.

  1. ACK Scan allows for the scanning of both unfiltered and filtered ports. It is currently rendered the most advanced scan the NMAP can do.

·         Use of Decoy

When scanning ports, the NMAP allows the use of decoys to avoid being caught by system administrators. Decoy IP addresses will be shown in target security logs instead of the actual IPs of attackers. However, decoy addresses have to be alive. It is still essential to check target security logs for assurance.

  • Reverse DNS Lookup

The NMAP is able to perform a reverse DNS lookup on a subnet as well. This tool can produce a listing of available IP addresses along with the related PTR record of a subnet. Subnets may be entered in a CDIR notation.

Aside from scanning ports, NMAP is also able to:
  • Find active IP addresses wi
    thin networks
  • Ping IP address range
  • Find which IPs are unused on given subnets
  • List servers with open ports
  • Get info on OS detection and remote host ports

NMAP has constantly been rated 5 stars and is often promoted by compliance, network and security engineers. The tool can be helpful in training new generation engineers since it prompt enlightening as well as the collection of valuable information regarding one’s network. It is a huge contribution to segment architecture and base lining of networks, highlighting potentially risky changes and connection information.


But is NMAP for good or bad?

It is a very powerful tool and as with others, can be a double-edged sword. The NMAP can discover open ports but it would still depend on users what they want to do further, whether exploit vulnerabilities or make networks safer.


Hacking Exercises for the Good Guys


On the first week of April 2013, USA Today reported about the hacking of Israeli government websites, which coincidentally followed after the group Anonymous warned of a massive cyberattack. Among the institutions allegedly attacked were the Defense and Education Ministry, the Bureau of Statistics, and a few banks.
The offensive was characterized by homepages being replaced with anti-government slogans. However, the state’s expert on cryptography and network security, Shlomi Dolev, sees the silver lining amidst all these. He said it is a good test to know whether Israel’s defense systems are actually working, especially in the face of even more serious attacks in the future.
Even the Associated Press was not spared from cyberattacks. On the last few days of the same month, hackers got into the Twitter account of the newsgathering organization and posted a prank message about Obama being injured and the White House being under attack. With the Boston bombing just days before it, the post was taken seriously by followers.
It took minutes before Associated Press was able to reclaim control of the account and correct the misinformation. The consequence of the incident to the stock market is more distressing though. Almost $200 billion equity value were lost that day, as stocks were sold sharply and fast after the fake news came out.
Of course, with cyberattacks becoming almost a daily occurrence, you can expect the good guys to step up against shadowy criminals. In New York University, for instance, a group of twenty-something teenagers meet up every week and train to become white-hat hackers.
Their main goal is help government agencies and businesses protect their websites from attacks on the Web. Much like spies operating from behind the keyboard, these college students hone their hacking abilities while turning up electronic funk music and eating pizza.
Of course, what they do is actually not real-life hacking; it is illegal, regardless of one’s purpose. Instead, they collaborate with their professors and industry experts in creating exercises that expose them to simulated hacking scenarios. Among the most common instruments used by hackers is the Internet Explorer browser.
One classic case is the June 2011 hack that tried to access numerous Google e-mail accounts, an attack that was eventually traced back to China. The group’s mentors recreated the exploit and had the students map out how the criminal was able to infiltrate private networks through access to a desktop computer.
While such schools as Carnegie Mellon, Purdue, and Georgia Tech are quite popular for their excellent cybersecurity programs, the NYU-Poly in Brooklyn seems to be gaining votes as the best training ground when it comes to hands-on experience and mission-critical work. Much of this may be credited to Hack Night, an annual hacking competition every fall and is the largest contest of its kind in the country.

Famous Facebook Hack Codes and Useful Tips


When the word “hacking” is brought up, what immediately comes to people’s mind is the act of exploiting weaknesses in computer systems or computer networks. With the recent news about how the infamous group, Anonymous, has been taking down sites as their move to combat internet censorship, or about China’s recent cyberespionage against American national security, hacking has taken a rather negative connotation to people’s eyes. But in reality, the term’s implication goes beyond just accessing protected information. It could also mean manipulating features that the general public typically doesn’t know exist.

Even Facebook has hack codes which a lot of people don’t know about. However, the thing with Facebook is that its designers constantly change features and links at whim. Users are often left unable to guess what would come next or why their links or plug-ins no longer works. Here are 3 Facebook tips and hack codes that a lot of Facebook enthusiasts have enjoyed along the years.

Code Lens Flare

Exactly typing in the key sequence UP-UP-DOWN-DOWN-LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT-RIGHT-B-A-(Enter) and then scrolling the page up or down will result to a display of cool lens flares. This may be quite a silly hack for some but for those who are not too computer savvy, the method might just be enough to get them impressed. The effect is also not annoying since it disappears rather quickly.

Go Pirate

This profile hack is known to be the easiest from the bunch. Facebook allows its users to change their profiles into languages they desire.

  1. On the right part of your page, beside the Activity Log is the Settings Logo. Click on it and choose the Timeline Settings option.
  2. You will be directed to another page. Look at the right side and choose General, which is the first item on the list.
  3. Click on Language and select English (Pirate) from the dropdown list.
Now you can enjoy Facebook the pirate style!

Hide From Certain People

There simply are days when you just don’t feel like chatting with someone in particular but you also don’t want to completely turn off your online status. Well, here’s a way to solve that dilemma.
  1. Open the chat list located in the bottom right of your account.
  2. Go to Settings and opt for the Advanced Settings.
  3. Choose option 1 if you just like to appear online to some people and enter in the names of friends whom you don’t want to see you. You can also go for option 2 if you want to select specific friends that you like to be seen as online then click save. 
Hacking Facebook does not really require a lot of work. Sometimes, all it takes is exploring the features made available and experimenting what you can do with them.

Hacking Methods: Clickjacking, Session Hijacking and DNS Spoofing


Many hackers are real technology buffs with expertise on how computers typically work.Although there are those that enjoy programming and take it as a means to show off their abilities instead of harm others, there are also people who make use of hacking for malicious activities. Whether you are simply curious as to what hacking methods are being used these days or you are looking for ways to protect yourself from attacks, knowing more about these complex hacking methods will benefit you one way or another.


  • Clickjacking. This is also commonly referred to as UI redress attack. In this method, attackers will be using multiple opaque or transparent layers in order to trick users into clicking buttons or links that have been programmed differently than expected. Attackers hijack clicks meant for one page and route them to another.This technique is also applicable to keystrokes. With carefully crafted combinations of text boxes, iframes and stylesheets, hackers can lead users to think they are typing passwords in their email. But fact is they are actually typing into invisible frames created and controlled by the attackers.

How to prevent clickjacking:


  • Disallow framing from any other domain.
  • Use defensive codes in your UI, ensuring that current frames are the only top level windows.
  • Session Hijacking. This attack can be of two types:
    1. In Active Session Hijacking, attackers hijack while users are still logged on to their accounts or profiles. It is called active session hijacking because attackers will have to interact with their victims in order to successfully steal the session. Interaction can be through social engineering tactics like emailing or private messaging.
    2. Passive Session Hijacking is different. This attack is carried out while users are still trying to make a connection with their server. Attackers will often only sit silently on that same network but are actually already recording login credentials being typed in.
How to prevent session hijacking:
  • Encrypt data traffic transmitted between parties; particularly the session key.
  • Use long random numbers or strings for your session key.
  • Always regenerate your session ID right after logging in successfully.
  • Never forget to log out after your session.

  1. DNS Spoofing. This is an attack where users will be presented fake DNS information. The server will be returning incorrect IP address in response to user requests, forcing users to surf fake or different sites.

How to prevent DNS spoofing:
·         Secure and update internal systems constantly.
·         Deploy intrusion detection and intrusion prevention systems.
·         Utilize DNSSEC. This is a secure technology which allows only the digitally signed DNS information to get published on the DNS servers. The technology also helps prevent fake zone transfers, preventing the infection of DNS servers themselves.

Hacking Tools - Phishing, Keylogging, Cookie Stealing & Social Engineering


Did you know that owning an account in Facebook or any other social networking site is exposing your information to hackers? Yes, you are. You might wonder why people would do this. They do because hacking is not as bad as people think. It is in fact useful and helpful for those who have relationship problems such as a better half having trust issues with the spouse or live-in friend or a mother worried of his son's or daughter's activities. Now, if you find yourself in the same position, you might want to try and hack your shared computers at home. You can choose from one of these methods:

1. Phishing - This is basically tricking a victim into logging-in to a Phisher or a copycat log-in site to infiltrate a victim's log-in information. Due to its nature, it is the riskiest type of hacking an account. It is also the most difficult as it requires a lot of computer-issue knowledge.

2. Keylogging - Keylogging is as simple as tracking a user's inputs in a computer. It can be in the form of software or hardware. If it is a hardware-based keylogging device, it will be installed in the computer's hardware. It will track and probably store screenshots of the user's messages and information as backup. If it is a software, the hacker will get access to the account's information by logging-in himself into the software manufacturer's site

3. Cookie Stealing - This is a less known means of stealing account information, but is easy. All you need is firesheep software and a wireless internet device such as laptop. Here, the hacker will capture your password as it travels through a busy wi-fi network. A Mozilla Firefox extension, the firesheep, is where it originated and is also making http session hijacking or stealing of all types easier.

4. Social Engineering - This hacking means is a lot less known hacking means due to the level of difficulty it is characterized with. In this type of hacking procedure, the hacker needs a lot of information to get into the victim's information. The hacker also needs partial personal details from the victim such as birthday, mobile number, favorites, and so on. A good example on this is the 'Lost Password' scheme that almost all social networking like Facebook uses as support for their users.

 Judging from these hacking methods, you can make a choice on which will best benefit your recent need. But if you are living with the person you are going to hack, you can try installing keylogger software or hardware in your shared computers. This is less risky and very user-friendly. It is also the best choice for parents who are trying to monitor their kid's extracurricular activities.

How Phishing Works in Hacking Multiple Facebook Accounts


Phishing is the art of tricking a Facebook account holder—or any social network prospect in handing out their log-in information unknowingly. How can that happen? Simple. A hacker makes a Phisher account, which is a spitting image of the log-in page of the site being copied, and send its url as link to a or group of prospects. Phishing is so far the most difficult way of hacking accounts, and definitely the most risky. With a little mistake or hint that the link is just a phisher, a hacker can be in trouble. That is why a Phish must be truly knowledgeable and have a great deal of convincing power.

How does Phishing work? First, the Phish or the hacker must create a dummy site. This site or the Phisher account will have to look just like the site it is being copied. Typically, it is the log-in page that hackers are concerned about because that is where the most important information of the victim are, so it is what the hacker convert into his very own log-in account. The hacker subscribe into a webhosting service and signs up for a sub domain. Then, he copies the index.htm of this account and replaces the one in the htdocs of the control panel’s online file manager of the site being copied. Another file in the folder in the folder, the one with the filename write.php, has to be downloaded to the Phisher account, too. This will result to the Phisher account being a spitting image of the log-in page of the site being copied.

The difficult part of Phishing is getting prospects to log-in to the Phisher account. This is where the convincing power of the hacker is needed. Usually, hackers succeed because of their wit in persuading their victim into logging in and giving away their username and password without sweat. The hacker will simply send a target a link that will take the victim to the log-in page and there it is the victim’s Facebook or any social network account is hacked. Usually, the hacker sends alarming message which will allow the victim to respond fast. Maybe a message like, “Protect your password, Update your account now!” may do the trick.

One of the good things in using a Phisher account in hacking Facebook accounts is that it can be used in blast e-mailing, which makes all the difficulties and time-consuming technical chores become a small chunk of work. Though making a Phisher account may be too long and so techy, once it is up, the hacker has nothing else to do but send messages to limitless number of account holders—of any social networking sites or even forum and message board accounts.

KeyLogging: Hack for Free!


Hacking is one of the primary problems of many social networking sites, including the world's most trusted Facebook. It is a means of extracting private and sometimes, very personal information with the use of acquired technical knowledge or with the help of some spy software. But hacking is not at all bad, depending on the intention of the hacker. Though admittedly, it is one of those words that have bad connotations.

There are a number of reasons why a person should or must hack an account. If it is his account, then it's basically for the purpose of reinstating his log-in details. This really happens, especially if the Facebook account had not been used for a long time. Or it may be for the simple reason that the hacker totally forgot about his own password or username. Other than this, hacking may be used for curiosity reasons or worst, for stealing log-in information of other people.

Like the many purposes of hacking, there are also numerous means of hacking a Facebook account. One of this is with the help of spy software or hardware, either paid or free. One example on these is the Keylogger Hacking Tool. A Keylogger may be in software or hardware form. It works basically to track or keep a log of the keys being pressed in a computer. There are different keylogger devices, software, or hardware a hacker can choose from. It is also the best choice for parents trying to keep track on what their kids are trying to open and subscribe to. This means has been also the more famous choice of hackers, simply because it is the easiest method one can use to hack a Facebook account—and one can use it for free!

But there is another free hacking means designed for the more techy hackers, and it is also for free. This is known as Phishing. A message that contains links taking the receiver to another log-in page is what it is. In a layman's, it is the art of tricking people to hand over their precious log-in information without asking them to. Phishing is laborious, though, but it can be fruitful as a hacker can simply create one Phisher account and blast-e-mail.

In the process, the hacker will have to sign up for a webhosting service, and replace the index.htm of the Facebook account with the index.htm file in the Phishing account's folder. Then, there's another file in the folder with the name write.php which you need to upload in the htdocs of the account. The result must be a log-in page that is a spitting duplicate of Facebook's. Copy the url of your homepage-turned-facebook login page and sent it with a really persuading intro to your prospects.

Recover Your Password through Hacking


Hacking has a negative connotation. It is almost foreseen as a negative means of breaking into personal information of a person. But that is not always true, especially if you are hacking your own account to recover some of your important information. A good example to this is when you forgot your password or username for your Facebook account. Rather than making another account, it would be better to hack this account and recover the password, username, or e-mail that you have already forgotten. And to do that, you will either need a hacking software or resort to more drastic recovery measures like phishing.

There is a number of software you can find in the web that are for free. These are legit software that you can install to your own computer, or even to a shared one. Since this software are simply tools in recovering forgotten passwords, usernames, or e-mails, they always adhere to one basic rule in hacking information—a warning message is prompt requiring the user to provide consent on the hacking process. This software works to notify the remote server of the webpage you are trying to open, and thus getting the information you need to recover your account. This information will be sent to your email, or a secondary email, which you will have to use right away to confirm the veracity of your claim. In cases where you forgot even your e-mail, a question or a number of questions will be your verifying information. You have to get all the answers right for the remote server to send your log-in information.

A faster way of recovering your Facebook account is acquiring paid spy software. They work pretty much the same as free spy software, but they are more effective in hacking accounts—primarily because they are designed to bypass the legal stuff that usually comes along with free spy software. They directly fish into your account, getting the information you need to claim your account and use it just like before. If you have enough time to do this, you can check on very reliable paid software providers and request for free trials of their product. By doing so, you can skip sizeable expenses for a one-time hacking venture.

It is therefore not true that hacking is always a negative means of gathering information. Sometimes, it is also useful—especially if what you will hack is your account. For the fastest and most effective hacking process, you can choose from different software that are designed for such purpose. In fact, you can find free software or paid ones. You just have to make sure that what you are getting is perfect for your current need.

The Art of Hacking - A New Look


There are different ways you can look at hacking. It may be good or bad, depending on the reason why it needs to be done. It is good if it will be used to gather your own information, say you forgot your password, username, or e-mail for your Facebook account. And though creating another account is actually a piece of cake in Facebook, you simply don't want to leave lose ends—you want to use this account rather than making a new one. It is also a good practice if you simply want to monitor what your younger siblings or kids are browsing when they are using the computer. Hacking only becomes bad if your intention is to simply gather other people's information, and use anything you find to bully or harm the other person.

 Hacking your own account is not as bad as hacking others. You will find this a requirement if you suddenly forgot the password or username that you have input the site as your recognizing information. To help you make through it, a number of hacking software can be found in the net. All you have to do is choose the hacking software that best matches your current need. Usually, such software comes with legal hacking stuff such as warning message for the user that says there is software that is taking note of all the necessary information of the account. This message is immediately prompted once the computer is turned on, or when  the internet service of the computer sprang to life. And to ensure that this is what happens right when the computer is turned on, you need to  install this software into your personal or shared computer.

Few Hacking software will require you to make your own account in their website. This is not a way to hack you, although it can be foreseen as another means of spamming or hacking you. This is being required by spy sites that have their own online vault for hacked Facebook accounts. This is also very helpful, although inconvenient for you, as you will just log-in to the hacking software provider site and browse the vault where all your information is sent to by the spy software.  In some other cases, an account database is created right on your hardware for you to easily take a peek on the information you have recovered. Just get into the folder where your information is sent and use this information right away to break into your set-up privacy. Whichever which way, you can rest assured that you will be able to recover your forgotten account. You can also do this through your Droid or IOS phone if you feel that this is going to be much easier for you.

The Best Way to Hack a Facebook Account


Probably not the easiest, but Phishing is the most effective way of tricking a person to hand you over his most personal information. It works by sending a target a link that will take him to a log-in page that looks flawlessly as Facebook. The moment the target keys in his information, the hacker wins the hacking game. He is now 1 hacked account richer.

So you want to learn the how-to's of Phishing? It is not easy, but is not rocket science too. All you need is a webhosting service where you will duplicate the log-in page of Facebook. A good host to consider for this is the Byethost. Now, you have to register a sub domain that you will use as the Phisher account. But to do that, you need to go to your sub domain's control panel where an htdocs folder can be found in the online file manager option. You need to download that folder and extract the file after. You will then find an index.htm and write.php files in the folder. Use these files in your htdocs to convert your homepage into a duplicate log-in page of the site you wanted to phish. Check your site to verify it is already a phisher account.

The next step is to find a target that you will send the link that will lead him to your phisher log-in page. The moment he logs into your page, you will receive a password.html file that contains the username and password of your victim. This will directly go to your htdocs in your phpnet.us account. Because Phishing can be done simultaneously in multiple accounts, it is being claimed as the best way in hacking Facebook accounts. As a matter of fact, you can send this Phisher log-in page in as many accounts as you want. And you can even design your Phisher message to automatically update the wall of your victim. That way, you will be able to multiply your victims really fast.

The only problem with Phishing is the capacity of the hacker to convince a target. This is why a person of real good intellect and eye for detail is the best candidate for this task. You don't just trick a person, you have to make him believe that he is in a legal site. And if the hacker is not as convincing, or at least his phisher site, the hacker may be in trouble. You see all those notification on your Facebook account, asking you if you want to report a spammer or flag a message. That's one of the site's hack-control techniques. You see, Phishing is effective, but it is the riskiest of all the Facebook account hacking methods.

The Different Faces of Hackers


You may not know it, but you might be one of the millions being targeted by hackers. It's not who or what you are, it's just that you are at the wrong social network at the wrong time. You see, being in Facebook, or any other social network site is exposing yourself to these unscrupulous people in the web. Chances are your information will be used to trick other people.

For this reason, most social network and mailing sites require you to change passwords often. For your information safety's sake, it is highly recommended that you keep yourself from clicking any links forwarded to you but always use the original site url in logging into your account.

But you have to be wary in opening your account, especially if you have very personal information in it, in shared computers and cafes—yes, even in the office. There's another way of hacking your account and this time, the hacker doesn't even need to go through the difficulty of creating a Phisher account. All it takes is a Keylogger, either a software or hardware, to take every one of your precious information. If it is software, the hacker will install it in the computer and once you log-in to your account, it will work like a spy—stealing your details while they are on their way to the account server. These details will then be sent to the hacker's account via the software manufacturer's site. This is very dangerous as all your information is not guaranteed to be just for use of the hacker but being in the database of another website that maybe a better hacker can steal from. Worst, the site may just be worst than your hacker and try to steal all the hacked accounts in their data base. On the other hand, if the computer owner is using a keyloggger that's hardware-based, you are again in danger. Only this time, not only your log-in information are in danger of being hacked but every bit of detail you input the computer. This type is the favorite of parents who are on the lookout for what their kids do in their computers.

Phishing or Keylogging, both are hacking means that risks everyone's vital information online. They may be bad or good, depending on the purpose why they are being used. If it's for the mere safety and security of the computer or the people using a computer, then there's nothing to worry about. But if it's for curiosity purposes, then it must be avoided for your safety.

What Hacking Tools to Use


Since the World Wide Web (www) became popular, everything become so easy—even with hacking accounts in most social networking sites like Facebook. And there are a lot of choices of tools you can use in doing so: Phishing, software and hardware spy devices, social engineering, http session hijacking, and revealing remembered password via browsers. With all these, it is best that an account be very wary with everything he clicks or trust in the web.

The five classifications of hacking tools and means are basically divided into two categories—paid and free. Paid hacking means include some software and hardware that needs to be bought from their manufacturers or suppliers. The good thing about paid hacking software or hardware is their reliability in doing the task. These paid tools and devices will also keep from prompting a 'hack alert' message brandishing the possibility of a possible second party receiving inputs and updates from the account, which is very famous in most free 'security' software. Nevertheless, these software and hardware spy tools or devices are also very user-friendly. They can be directly installed into the computer and will run every time a user logs-in or uses the computer. All information will be sent to a database, which is owned by the hacker in the site of his bought software site. This is where he will get the information he needs to trick other people, usually your own friends.

Free software and hardware hacking devices are also available, but they are more user-friendly to account users than the hackers. These devices usually flash around notices and warnings that the account is vulnerable to hacking. It is only if the user consent to its term of use that it will continue doing its monitoring task. If the user chooses not to go on, the software or hardware will not continue tracking the user's activities. Thus, the hacker will not have any access to the important information of that user. Usually, these types of hacking devices are found installed in net cafe, office, and even personal computers. Other than installable software and hardware devices, Phishing, social engineering, and http session hijacking are free hacking techniques as well. One thing that is common to all these methods is the level of difficulty on their use. Phishing, for example, will require the hacker to sign-up for a sub domain in a trusty webhosting service. The hacker also needs to alter this site so as to create a spitting image of the log-in page of the social site he is trying to copy. The risk is that this copycat site will have an additional name in the url than that of the original site, say http://gofacebook.com/login/ than just simply http://facebook.com/login/.
