Hack Account Password Using Cookie Stealing And Session Hijacking
What is Cookie and How to hack Email account using cookies :
Cookie is a piece of text stored on user computer by websites visited by the user. This stored cookie is used by webserver to identify and authenticate the user while login. So, if you steal this cookie (which is stored in victim browser) and inject this stealed cookie in your browser, you can imitate victim identity to webserver and enter his Email account easily. This is called Session Hijacking. Thus, you can easily hack Email account using such Cookie stealing hacks.
Tools Required for Cookie stealing attack :
- Cookie capturing tool
- Cookie injecting/editing tool
1 : Cookie capturing tool :
Suppose, you are running your computer or laptop on a LAN. The victim too runs his/her computer on same LAN which you are also using. Then, you can use Cookie capturing tool to sniff all the packets to and from victim computer. In those packets some of the packets contain cookie information. These packets can be decoded using such Cookie capturing tool and you can easily obtain cookie information necessary to hack Email account. Wireshark , WebCookieSniffer and HTTP Debugger Pro softwares can be used to capture cookies.
2 : Cookie injecting/editing tool :
Now, once you have successfully captured your victim cookies, you have to inject those cookies in your browser. This job is done using Cookie injecting tool. Also, in certain cases after injection, you need to edit cookies which can be done by Cookie editing tool. This cookie injection/editing can be done using simple Firefox addons Add N Edit Cookies and Greasemonkey scripts.
Drawbacks of Cookie Stealing :
Cookie Stealing is easiest way to hack email account but it has some serious drawbacks:
1. Cookie has an expiry time i.e. after certain trigger cookie expires and you cannot use it to login into your victim account.
2. Cookie stealing becomes useless in SSL encrypted environment i.e. for https (Secure HTTP) links. But, most Email accounts and social networking sites rarely use https unless vicitm has manually set https as mandatory connection type.
3. Also, most cookies expire once victim hits on LogOut button. So, you have to implement this Cookie stealing hack while user is logged in. But, most of the user have the habit of checking "Remember Me" so i dont think it is big issue.
So friends, this was a short tutorial on basics of how to hack Email account using Cookie Stealing And Session Hijacking. As I have mentioned, Cookie stealing has some disadvantages. But, I think Cookie stealing is a handy way to hack an Email account.
