Phishing:

Phishing is the most common technique used for hacking FB passwords. It is easy for anyone who is having little technical knowledge to get a phishing page done, basically using HTML, CSS & JavaScript and that is why phishing is so popular. Many people become a victim of Phishing web pages due to its trustworthy layout and appearance.

How phishing works?

In simple words, Phishing is a process of creating a duplicate copy of a reputed website’s page in the intention of stealing user’s password or other sensitive information like credit card details.

In our topic, Creating a page which perfectly looks like Facebook login page but in a different URL like fakebook.com or faecbook.com or any URL which pretends to be legit. When a user lands on such a page, he/she might think that is real Facebook login page and asking them to provide their username and password. So the people who do not find phishing page suspicious might enter their username, password and the user information would be sent to the hacker who created the phishing page, simultaneously the victim would get redirected to original FB page.

Example: John is a programmer, he creates a FB login page with some scripts that enable him to get the username and password information. John put this fake login page in https://www.facebouk.com/make-money-online-tricks. Peter is a friend of John. John sends a message to Peter “Hey Peter, I found a free trick to make money online easily, you should definitely take a look at this https://www.facebouk.com/make-money-online-tricks-free”. Peter navigate to the link and see a Facebook login page. As usual Peter enters his username and password of FB. Now the username and password of Peter was sent to John and Peter get redirected to a money making tips page https://www.facebouk.com/make-money-online-tricks-tips-free.html. That’s all & now Peter’s Facebook account has been successfully hacked!

How could you protect yourself from online FB phishing?
Hackers can reach you in many ways like email, personal messages, FB messages, Website ads etc. Clicking any links from these messages would lead you to a Facebook login page. Whenever you find a FB login page, you should note only one thing which is URL because nobody can spoof / use Facebook URL except when there are some XSS zero day vulnerabilities but that’s very rare.
1. What is the URL you see in browser address bar?
2. Is that really https://www.facebook.com/ (Trailing slash is important since it is the only separator in Google chrome to distinguish domain and sub domain. Check out the below examples to know the difference)?
3. Is there a Green colour secure symbol (HTTPS) provided in the address bar?
Keeping these questions in your mind would prevent you from getting hacked of online phishing pages. Also see the below examples of phishing pages.
Some super perfect phishing pages are listed below.
Facebook Phishing Page – Note the misleading URL
Most of the people won’t suspect this page (snapshot given above) since there is https prefix with green colour secure icon and no mistake in www.facebook.com. But this is a phishing page, how? Note the URL correctly. It is https://www.facebook.com. infoknown.com so www.facebook.com is a subdomain of infoknown.com. Google Chrome do not differentiate the sub-domain and domain unlike Firefox do.
SSL Certificates (HTTPS) can be obtained from many online vendors, few vendors give SSL Certificate for Free for 1 year. Its not a big deal for a novice to create a perfect phishing page like this. So be aware of it.
Facebook Phishing Page – Note the misleading URL.
This is a normal FB Phishing page with some modification in the word Facebook.

2 Social Engineering
This is the second most common technique of hacking Facebook accounts. Actually this method shouldn’t come under Hacking since there is no much knowledge required for this method. I am listing this method under hacking to ensure the list of most common techniques used for FB account hacking in their respective order. Social engineering is basically a process of gathering information about someone whose account you need to hack. Information like date of birth, their mobile number, their boyfriend / girlfriend’s mobile number, nickname, mother’s name, native place etc.
How Social Engineering works?
Security Question
FB-Social-Engineering-Security-Question
Many websites have a common password reset option called Security Question. Most common security questions would be “What is your nickname?” , “What is your 10th grade score?” , “What is your native place?” or any custom questions defined by user. Obtaining these information from the respective people might let us hack into their account. Facebook too provides security question as password recovery option. So if anyone get to know the answer of it, they could hack account using forgot password option.
Most Common and Weak Passwords
Security Question does not let you get into others FB account easily. But setting a weak password could easily allow any of your friends to hack into your account. What is a weak password in this scenario? A password which can be easily guessed by a third person is called weak password. Below are some of the most common passwords people tend to use in Facebook.
Mobile Number
Nickname / Name and Date of Birth Conjunction
Boy Friend’s Mobile Number / Girl Friend’s Mobile Number – Most of the lovers
Boy Friend’s / Girl Friend’s Name – Most of the lovers
Boy Friend and Girl Friend Name Combination
Bike Number
Unused / Old Mobile Number
Pet Name
Closest Person Name (can be friends too)
Now be honest and comment here if you are one of the people who have any one of the common passwords mentioned above. Don’t forget to change your password before making a comment
How could you protect yourself from Social Engineering?
Security Question
Don’t have a weak or familiar security question/answer. It should be known only to you. You can set your Facebook security question here.  Additionally FB provide an option called “Login Alerts” under Facebook Security Settings , you should add your mobile or email there to get notified whenever your Facebook account is logged in to a new or unknown device.
