Firesheep Makes Facebook Hacking Easy

Recently a new firefox addon Firesheep have been a cause of thousands of email accounts, As reported by techcurnch, Firesheep has been downloaded more than 104,000 times in roughly last 24 hours, With Firesheep the hacker can control any account without even knowing the username and password of the desired account, As Facebook is worlds most popular Social Networking website, therefore it has been the major victim of it, Firesheep uses Http Session hijacking attack to gain unauthorized access to a Facebook or any other account

What is Session Hijacking?

In a Http session hijacking attack an attacker steals victims cookies, Cookies stores all the necessary Information about one’s account , using this information you can hack anybody’s account and change his password. If you get the Cookies of the Victim you can Hack any account the Victim is Logged into i.e. you can hack Facebook Google, Yahoo, Orkut, Flickr etc or any other email account

How can a Hacker use Firesheep to Hack a Facebook or any other account?

Now I will tell you how can a hacker use firesheep to hack a facebook or any other account, You will need the following things:


Method

1. First of all download "Firesheep" from the above link and use the "openwith" option in the firefox browser


2. Once you have installed firesheep on firefox web browser, Click on view at the top, then goto sidebar and click on Firesheep



3. Now click on the top left button "Start capturing" and it will start to capture the session cookies of people in your wifi network, This will show you the list of those people whose cookies are captured and have visited unsecured website known to firesheep, Double click on the photo and you will be logged in instantly

    your cookie logger technique is not working i hope you have not learn about php language don't copy what ever you see in internet and paste http://rafayhackingarticles.blogspot.com/2009/09/hack-into-email-account.html if u don't know hacking follow my brother's blog www.latest-hackers.co.cc do u have any proof that ur tricks are 100% working if yes hack my id then i will belive (trisha281990@gmail.com)

  24. @trisha281990
    Cookie stealing is the widely used method and If you have a very little knowledge about hacking, you should know where the
    cookie stealing works, And about your brother's blog, This website has more ads then the content, So he is just making money from his blog not any thing to people, And the website is spamming on RHA for months now.

    I can say it without any doubt that RHA is one of the top Ethical hacking and security websites around, Well I can't change your mind, I do meet lots of jealous people on daily basis :P

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ya Rafay that website is completely a bullshit, It has lots of pop ups...

    ReplyDelete
  26. @ dear rafay

    your cookie stealing script is wrong i am master's in HTML embedded scripting language it has error in 7th line and 14th line i am not jealous on you :-P because your profile introduction is so funny (i am a, he is a ) lol i am saying you to just dont copy and paste in your blog what ever u see in internet i hope every one are doing the same

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Trisha281990
    I challenge you to prove that any of my post is a copy paste, RHA is a blog which provides unique content, not like the blog you mentioned in your earlier comment making money with few visitors, You don't have any facts or proofs for what you speak,And if you know PHP then you should have got the script to work for you.

  52. Hi Rafay,
    Thanks for sharing above valuable info.

    Liked your way, of answering to naive/complex & funny comments(eg. trisha).

    Keep posting we are reading.

    ReplyDelete
  53. First of all. firesheep wont work standalone on closed networks, you have to have a man in the middle attacker too, and on that not, if you know how to use a man in the middle attacker such as caine and able, or a pass cracker like John the ripper, you really wouldn't need firesheep it just makes things maybe a bit...easier for newbies. now then. there is a way to intigrate a man in the middle attacker into firesheep, here is the link ->https://www.antago.info/download/firesheep-arpspoof-howto-101107.pdf it is a PDF so you will need an adobe PDF reader to view it. I do not know anything about these guys so use at your own risk. I do not know how to do this with Mac (even though I'm on windows 7 on my Macbook pro right now, yes it is sad)So if you do know how, please follow up. i can be reached at army.greg_25c@ymail.com for anymore questions.
