In this Blog Post, I will tell you Top 5 Methods of Hacking A Social Media Account (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc)
The Methods in here will be explained very clearly. This is only for Educational Purpose, nor TheGingerCo or the Publisher will be responsible.
Man in the Middle Attack
This type of attack occurs when a hacker privately steals and alters the communication between the sender and receiver.
A user may think he is communicating with a legitimate user, but actually, all the conversation is passing through hacker, and he possibly alters their communication without their knowledge.
In this attack, a hacker will make a fake social media login page that looks legitimate and share it with victimes to get login from a fake site.
When a victim enters credentials, it directly redirects to the hacker’s machine
DNS Spoofing/ Cache Poisoning Attack
Attackers can poison DNS Cache by manipulating DNS resolvers into caching false information, with the result that the resolver sends the wrong IP Address to users, and users attempting to navigate to a website will be directed to the wrong place.
This attack is generated by saved cookies from your browser. When the user login an account such as Facebook or Twitter Account, the server returns a session cookie.
The Hacker would steal the session token and with the help of this token, the hacker can access the victim’s account.
Another most straightforward way to hack social media is keylogging. There is a software named “Key logger” that is made by hackers to trace out the pattern of the keys of keyboard typed by the user.
After that, it immediately generates a file of that key pattern and sends it to the hacker’s computer through the internet.
