How To Hack Facebook Using Kali Linux
In this article, we’ll show you how to hack Facebook using Kali Linux. Kali Linux is a Linux distribution that comes with hundreds of pre-installed tools for conducting penetration tests and ethical hacks.
It’s also a popular operating system for security researchers and hackers. The tool we will use to hack Facebook is called Credentials Harvester Attack.
Hacking into a Facebook account is one of the most common methods of identity theft. Hackers will use various methods to get your password, but the easiest method is to use a Credentials Harvester Attack.
In this tutorial, we will use the Social Engineering tool i.e Credential Harvester attack in kali Linux. All you need to do is follow the tutorial as it is to see the Credentials Harvester in action.
It is a part of the SOCIAL ENGINEERING TOOLKIT. In this method, the attack started with the creation of a phishing page. The attacker set the postback IP address to receive the credentials like usernames and passwords. The attacker can shorten the IP address to make the IP address looks like a genuine URL.
When the victim visits the URL and feeds the login details, the post-back feature of the page will send all the data to the attacker.
1. Boot up kali Linux on your machine and open the terminal.
2. Type this command in the kali Linux terminal.
3. Enter ‘y’ to agree to the social engineering toolkit terms and conditions.
4. Select the following options one by one from the menu
‘1’ (Social Engineering Attacks) then
‘2’(Website Attack Vectors) then
‘3’(Credential Harvester Attack) then
5. Type ‘2’ (Site cloner)
set:webattack> IP address for the post back in harvesting:192.168.x.xxx (your IP address)
set:webattack>Enter the url to clone: www.fb.com
6. Go to Places > Computer > VAR > WWW and move all the files from the www folder to the HTML folder.
7. Shorten your IP address with tinyurl.com and send it to the victim. When the victim opens the link and enters the login details, you will get the username and password in a harvester text file which is located at Places > Computer > VAR > WWW.
The investigative information there could be used for bad intentions. So, try to avoid any phishing links or malicious sites and protect your passwords (a complex and hard-to-guess one will do trick).
There are various methods hackers can get from your Facebook profile. One of the most common ways is to make a fake login page on Facebook using the same domain name but with a “.co” extension. The user will enter his credentials on that site instead of the original Facebook because it is having the same layout and proper logos as the original website.
The Credentials Harvester Attack is an easy way to hack into a Facebook account. But taking the data from the Facebook account is not as easy and there are some serious issues with this method.
Getting a password is one thing, but successfully logging in and not getting caught or having your IP address banned by Facebook is another. We’ll talk about this more in-depth later on.
Technology is a continuous process, and all of the best tools will be updated frequently. What worked this year won’t necessarily work next year. It’s up to the security aficionado to stay on top of the latest trends, techniques, and tools.
And since there are so many ways to hack, we’ll probably never find out about every new way that comes along. That might terrify some people, but for us tinkerers and other knowledge seekers who take an interest in security, it’s a thrilling prospect that keeps us looking forward to what’s next.
