A few possible ways for a hacker to obtain Facebook passwords:
**NOTE THAT THIS IS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND SHOULD NOT TO BE ATTEMPTED WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM THE TARGET. THE REASON THIS WAS WRITTEN WAS BECAUSE OF A GENERAL MISUNDERSTANDING OF HACKING THAT SEEMS TO EXIST HERE**
(Easy)- You guess password based on various details you know about them.
(Easy)- You click on “forgotten password”, you choose the option which specifies His/Her name and one of his friends. You need to know his/her e-mail address and e-mail password. If you don’t know them then you can always try and guess their e-mail account password via the forgotten password and choosing “secret question”, the answer is usualy their first name.You connect on to his/her account and choose a new password.
(Easy)-You have physical access to his/her computer. You can install a “keylogger” which will send you everything he/she types on the keyboard including passwords. Google search “keylogger” for more info.
(Easy)- You leave your phone/camera recording the keyboard without them knowing, rewind it to see their password.
(Easy)- If they have a Mac, there is an app called keychain. If you have their computer password(easier to obtain than facebook password if they don’t fully trust you, you could wait for him to get into the shower and shout out “Hey gimme the password for ya’ computer l just want to go on the internet quickly, he/she will be wet and won’t come out just to avoid giving you the password) you can do a search in the keychain app for “facebook”, then click “show password” and enter the computer’s password. If you have the Mac’s password then you can get anything you like. I am unaware of similar programs on windows.
(Medium)- You have at least a basic knowledge of Web building, MySQL etc. . You may search their facebook’s page to see which apps they use on facebook. Their password is only as strong as the weakest security wise application they use. Choose something random not many people use, something that looks poorly coded. Use SQL injection to dump database :) , all you would have to do after that is to search for his pass in the list and decrypt the hashed password with one of the many websites offering this service for free.
(Medium)- You have a minimum knowledge of terminal commands. Download Backtrack and buy yourself an external wifi card (30$). Learn how to use the aircrack-ng package (there are lots of tutorials on youtube, very straight forward). With the aircrack-ng package you can crack their wifi if they use WPA encryption. If you already have their wifi password or if you can invite them over to yours and they have a laptop which is connected onto your local network (your wifi modem) then you won’t need to learn about aircrack-ng. You will however need to learn how to ARP poison a network (again extremly easy with backtrack, lots of tutorials on YT). When you ARP poison a network and the target connects onto a website with a pass and id you recover both without them knowing. All they will see is a Certifacate asking for permission to access to website. We’ve all seen them, and think nothing of it, but if someone is poisoning your wifi, beware.
(Impossible)- Hack Facebook’s mainframe. Although few have already penetrated Facebook crazy defence of firewalls and security mesures, l assure you none of them will be lurking around on this website :) Some are probably in prison, others get it done without ever being noticed or caught. NONE will be here :)
All people offering you any services here are fraudsters. They will con you out of money and never give you a valid password. It is also illegal and you can be judged as an accomplice.
I hope you have a better understanding of the different ways a hacker can obtain your credentials etc… You must never display any private information such as emails address’s etc. on your facebook account.
If you do, people know where to attack.
**BE CAUTIOUS, THERE ARE MANY MORE WAYS OF OBTAINING PASSWORDS SO ALWAYS BE CAFEFULL WITH YOUR OWN PASSWORDS! DON’T HAND THEM OUT! HACKING IS ILLEGAL**
