There are various methods to hack facbook account password like Keyloggers, Phishing websites etc.. whereas bruteforcing, dictionary attacks, DDOS attack etc will not work directly due account lockout feature. Today in this post I am going to share a very effective way to hack facebook account I named it Top 10 ways to hack facebook accounts
1. Facebook Phishing
Phishing still is the most popular attack vector used for hacking facebook accounts, There are variety of methods to carry out phishing attack, In a simple phishing attacks a hacker creates a fake login page which exactly looks like the real facebook page and then asks the victim to login into that page, Once the victim logins through the fake page the victims “Email Address” and “Password” is stored in to a text file, The hacker then downloads the text file and get’s his hands on the victims credentials.
Keylogging, according to me is the easiest way to hack a facebook password, Keylogging sometimes can be so dangerous that even a person with good knowledge of computers can fall for it. A keylogger is basically a small program which once is installed on victims computer will record every thing which victim types on his/her computer. The logs are then send back to the attacker by either FTP or directly to hackers email address.
3. Session Hijacking
Session Hijacking can be often very dangerous if you are accessing Facebook on a http:// connection, In a Session Hijacking attack a hacker steals the victims browser cookie which is used to authenticate a user on a website and uses to it to access victims account, Session hijacking is widely used on Lan’s. I have already written a three part series on How session hijacking works? and also a separate post on Facebook session hijacking.
4. Sidejacking With Firesheep
Sidejacking attack went common in late 2010, however it’s still popular now a days, Firesheep is widely used to carry out sidejacking attacks, Firesheep only works when the attacker and victim is on the same wifi network. A sidejacking attack is basically another name for http session hijacking, but it’s more targeted towards wifi users.
5. Mobile Phone Hacking
Millions of Facebook users access Facebook through their mobile phones. In case the hacker can gain access to the victims mobile phone then he can probably gain access to his/her Facebook account. Their are lots of Mobile Spying softwares used to monitor a Cellphone.
The most popular Mobile Phone Spying softwares are:
6. DNS Spoofing
If both the victim and attacker are on the same network, an attacker can use a DNS spoofing attack and change the original facebook.com page to his own fake page and hence can get access to victims facebook account.
7. USB Hacking
