As Social Engineering hacks are now getting effective, I can really say all hacks can’t be done effectively without the help of Social Engineering tactics.
Though I have taken my time to write some post about Social Engineering Attacks, Preventive Measures, and Means Of Hacking Facebook or other Social Media Account using Social Engineering Method.
But here today we are going to focus on getting mainly some details such as Email Addresses and Passwords, so we are going to build up a website to target some particular people and have them create an account on the website we have developed.
So let’s start with the meaning of What Social Engineering Means?
Social Engineering is the art of getting people to submit the information to you with ease. Instead of breaking through their systems or devices to get it yourself.
#1. Select Your Target Audience
The first step of it all is for you to pick up a target, be it an industry or a particular people, here we are going to use students, so you can create a particular website that students can log in to read.
#2. Use Their Email Address as Their Username
Now that the website has been set up and running, you will need an authentication mechanism. we will just ask the students to enter their email address as their username since many sites do use the email address means to allow people to register into their sites.
After they enter their details username, they will also select password part for them to be part of your blog.
#3. Promote/Advertise The Website.
This shouldn’t be considered the hardest part though, but to some, it will be hard, you need to promote the site so that even busy students will find the site and open account on your site.
I will advise you to make use of Google AdWords to reach out to people or rather some other Advertising sites that help you reach out to the World.
Although this might take some few time, to be successful in anything in this world, you have to learn to be patient and creative, some effective hacks take years to be completed.
#4 Try Entering Their Email With The Passwords.
Sure, we’ve got some serious students that love reading a lot, which is good, so they will surely click to read some books, so they will surely Sign up with their emails and passwords will the aim of reading.
So there are 90% of them that will be re-using their normal passwords to register because not everyone can go through the stress of using different passwords for different accounts.
#5. Find Other Accounts
Now that you have successfully login into any Gmail account, actually you shouldn’t expect all the submitted details to match their Gmail details, so if few get logged in successfully, Congrats.
Now after full access to the Gmail accounts, now let’s search for other accounts such as Facebook, bank, brokerage because emails accounts are the means of verifying accounts
And viola, Social Engineering Completed, so I hope you have learnt a practical example of how you can hack accounts using Social Engineering Method, it just all about patience.
