Hack Facebook Account Status - Facebook Status Vulnerability


Hello Friends in this article I will talk about a common vulnerablility which can be used by hackers to hack a facebook account status. Before I proceed with this article I would like to mention it clearly that every thing explained here is for educational purposes only. Our mission is not to encourage people to hack facebook accounts, However we want to raise awareness among people regarding latest internet security threats.

Methodology

There are tons of Facebook users who use a feature called facebook text in order to update a facebook status. If you have enabled this feature all you need to do in order to update your status is to type in your status and send it to "923223265".


However the idea behind this facebook Account status hack is to send a fake sms from your friend's number, therefore the facebook will think that the message has came from the legitimate source and hence it will update the victims Status.

SMS Global

SMSGlobal is a website that allows you send fake sms, The free account only allows you to send 25 SMS, However the business account allows you to send more. All you need to do is to register on SMS global, activate your account. After logging in to your account, click on “Send SMS to a Number”.


 

Send SMS To: 923223265 (Facebook)

Sender ID From: Victims Mobile Number.

Message: The Status which you would like to be updated.
