Hack A Facebook Account Using Wireshark Software. What Is Wireshark?
Wireshark is a software program that is primarily used by hackers to sniff and monitor networks in order to extract sensitive data from the intended victim. Though not widely used or known, it has proven to be exceedingly effective, especially for hub networks. So, here’s how it works. Wireshark basically collects and monitors the data sent or received over a network and lets you go through this data. Wireshark can also capture cookies which can even be used to hack a Facebook account.
However, it can only work if the website the victim is logging onto does not use a secured HTTPS connection. It works only on HTTP connection which does not encrypt login data.
The Way To Hack A Facebook Account Using Wireshark Software
Firstly, gain access to the Network. Open networks or your own network would be easy but if you have a specific slave you want you should be able to gain access using Backtrack. Secondly, right click Cain and choose “run as administrator”. On the top bar go to “configure” and be sure to select your wireless card/adapter. Now click where it says “Sniffer” then this little button towards the top left.
Next click any empty white box then the blue “+” symbol near the button you pressed just before. choose okay.
These are all the devices it was able to detect. Now we go to APR on the bottom bar. Once again click any empty white box then the blue cross. It’s easiest to just go one by one and choose all possibilities.
Thirdly, run Wireshark as administrator. On the top bar choose ‘Capture’ then ‘Interfaces.’ Here you will have to choose your interface that is connected to the Network we are sniffing from. if you wait a few seconds you might see some traffic being collected as seen in my photo, just choose that interface b/c that most likely it.
Wireshark will list and color-code all the traffic it sees for you. To make this simpler we can use the filter to only see the traffic we want, Type “http.cookie” in the filter. Final: Open up your firefox browser with Add and Edit enabled. You can get to your add ons by going to tools and they should all be listed in the drop down tab. First go to the website you are hacking the session from then open your cookie editor. Hack a Facebook account becomes easy with Wireshark.
