    hacking hotmail..fyi

    i came across an exploit on my own the other day and i thought i'd ask if this had already been done. i guess you can say this is a form of social engineering but oh well. you must know the name and birthday, area and zip in order for this to work. this is the process. go to this site


    that should bring back a page for resetting passwords. now all you have to do, is enter in the adress you want to hack, the "alternate email address" is going to be your account that you want their email sent to. and then you must enter all the other appropriate fields. and this is important, at the bottom, for last sign in date, you must put a really old date of last sign in, or a date that you know they have checked since then and make it one day before that. now hotmail is kind enough to send you an email to the alternate email address you specified. and if you entered in a date that you know is too old to be the last sign in date, they will say that they are sorry and you have signed in since then...this is the good part.. reply to them saying someone has hacked your account and you need to have your password reset immediately. they will then reply to you with a new password that they specify(all to the account you told them to send to)...now you have access to the account. do what you want in it, and here is what i suggest. assuming they have AIM, go to aol.com and say you forgot your password for the sn you gave. they will send an email to the account the sn is registered to. aka the account you have access to. so read the email and you now have their sn pass...most likely their sn pass and their email passes are the same. so just change the email pass to the sn pass and they wont know the difference. however, i reccomend getting into their personal information(going thru the options section) and then copying their old secret question but putting a new answer in it so you will always have access to their account if need be

    As true as you likely believe that statement to be, you picked a really bad day to make it. You might want edit this and find a way to delete the tread before you end up on the "Close to being Banned" list.

    Yes, this is a security site. I think your post would be fine, but you have to include ways to PREVENT this from happening. Include ways to protect yourself from having this happen to you. Then it might be acceptable. If you want to share knowledge on how to hack stuff go somewhere else.

    To try to make this a more positive thread, I'm going to share my methods for protecting my previous hotmail accounts, and I will then proceed to balance my AP assignments. First, I don't give out any real information to the hotmail people. Even if you know me extremely well, knowing my name, birthdate, zipcode, etc., you still won't be able to steal my password. And I change my lies each time. One day I'll be Alex Baston, born June 16, 1973, of 90210, and then I'll be Sam Goodwin, December 3, 1992, of 46512. If you're random, and you leave no pattern to be found, chances are that your account should be pretty safe from impersonators.

    Now, for the reddies....

    I know you\'re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you\'re afraid. You\'re afraid of us. You\'re afraid of change. I don\'t know the future. I didn\'t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it\'s going to begin. I\'m going to hang up this phone, and then I\'m going to show these people what you don\'t want them to see. I\'m going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.
