Hi friends, today i’m going to talk about how a hacker can bruteforce a facebook passwords.
Prepping the attack
before we get started, we need to download this script that will allow a cracker to gain access to Facebook accounts. Here is the command to type to download the tool.
git clone https://github.com/imadoxhunter/Facebook-Bruter && cd Facebook-Bruter
We just downloaded the Facebook-Bruter now we need to change the permissions of the program so we can use it, so type in this command to do just that.
chmod +x Facebook-Bruter.pl
Now to run the program, just issue this command.
./Facebook-Bruter.pl “email” “wordlist”
What you need to know before the attack
All you need to know to crack a facebook password is their email address, but.. you need a wordlist, the wordlist must contain their password.
How to generate a wordlist
A word list can be generated using cupps or some other program that comes with Kali, there are heaps of wordlist generators.
Heres a link to cupps:
To install cupps just type this.
git clone https://github.com/Mebus/cupp
This will download it from git hub.
HINT: The larger the wordlist the more chance you have of bruteforcing their password but it will take longer.
Here’s a quick video of me cracking a test account I created on facebook.
