We discussed the way to hack Facebook account using Cookie Stealing in my previous article. In that method, we had used Wireshark to capture the victim’s Facebook cookies. But, many readers were unable to capture cookies of their victims. So, I am writing this article to explain a new method to capture Facebook cookies of your victim which can be used to hack Facebook account.
Note: Many argue that Cookie stealing does not work for Facebook. But, I want to assure that this Facebook hack works and it works great. In fact, this is currently my favorite way of hacking Facebook.
Problems with Wireshark:
Wireshark is the one of the best tools available today. It can capture all packets in the network. But, Wireshark can capture Facebook cookies only if the network is hub-based. If you are running on a switch-based network, you will have to implement “Man In the Middle attack” using Cain. Without “Man In the Middle attack”, Wireshark cannot capture Facebook cookies.
What is Man In the Middle attack???
Before getting to the actual method, let us brush up our networking basics which we are gonna use in this hack:
In Man in the Middle attack (MITM), the attacker makes independent connections with victims and relays the messages between them. Thus, if you implement MITM attack on your victim, all the data to and from the victim computer will be routed via your computer. So, you will be able to read whatever is being communicated, without making the victim realize that he is being intercepted.
If you are running on switch-based LAN, the simplest way to implement MITM attack is to opt for ARP Poisoning. Using ARP Poisoning, the attacker places himself in between the gateway and the victim computer. This allows the attacker to intercept the data frames on LAN, modify them or even stop the traffic on LAN.
How are we going to do this???
We will use Cain to implement MITM attack and ARP Poisoning. After MITM attack, all the Facebook cookies of the victim will be routed via your computer. This will enable Wireshark to capture cookies. Since you have the Facebook cookies of your friend, you can easily use them to hijack his Facebook session.
In my next article, I will write about the use of Cain for MITM attack (useful for hacking Facebook account). If you have any problem in this tutorial, please share it with us in comments.
Enjoy hacking Facebook…
