Hi guys and girls.
Today i am posting about “Facebook hacking tools” and why they never work and more than likely never will work. Before we start talking about this a disclaimer.

I WILL NOT BE SUPPLYING ANY TOOLS AND NEVER WILL. YOU AND ONLY YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU ACTIONS. MISS USING THIS INFORMATION WILL MORE THAN LIKELY BRAKE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY. THERE IS INFORMATION LEFT OUT TO STOP THIS INFORMATION BEING USED FOR ILLEGAL ACTS.
I Will NOT Help You, I will NOT tell you any methods of DOING it that are stealthily, I Will NOT Aid you in any way.
So some Back story to this post.
We it seems to me, every time i get introduced to a new person by a friend or a person that knows me and they mention i am in to computer security, The very next question i get is “Can you hack someones Facebook for me ?”. I promptly reply this every time, Its not hard but i will not do it for you nor tell you how to do it your self.
The Thing People always over look or just don’t understand,
So i am about to disclose something that a lot of people will have never considered , Do you really think with all the money Facebook makes and that they offer on there bug bounty “Facebook Bug Bounty Page” Some White hat hacker have been paid $15,000. First That someone who found a bug that allows you to see user’s password or allows you to recovery passwords would ever put it out for Free. of course they will not, Second that Facebook doesn’t have a massive team of security experts Looking for suspicious activity and last of all why o why would a real hacker put a target on his/her own back by posting it on YouTube for the world to see.
So if we can hack Facebook what are these tools for ?
So the tool’s are Not tools at all most of them are malware , Yes malware , hidden in fake tools that do nothing 99% of the time.
This is a Topical YouTube video On hacking Facebook accounts with this tool “OOOOOOHH” must be legit. em yeah. Lets have a look at the comments section
Comments Disabled “Hmmmm” Strange or may be the YouTuber doesn’t want people to comment stating that the file is just a Malware and not the tool being shown or is just fake software with a download embedded in the code that you cant see.
So lets download it shale we. (I would STRONGLY recommend that you DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY OF THIS KIND OF SOFTWARE).
The Download opens but the download buttons is disabled as the hosting company have noticed that this is malware.
So Why Do they Do this ?
So the next logical question is why do people post this on YouTube if it doesn’t work and never will ? Because They what to Infect you with there malware most of the time it is kids trying to infect computers to use them as botnet for DDos or (Distributed denial of service ) . To kick each other off Xbox live or PlayStation network. But this it not always the motive be hide it. some times it is by cyber criminals that are after you money or information. Be careful.
So Distributed Denial Of Service is the use of infected computers or servers to flood a website or network with requests or packets. this overwhelms the network or website stopping over users from using it. Denying the service targeted.
So how Do most Facebook accounts get hacked?
Most Facebook accounts get hacked due to another infection, Most often this is that you download a tool like “Facebook Hack Tool V 1.0”. This is not the only way you could get infected by a Drive by download. an automatic attack script that automatically infect computer that visit a website that is also infected. How ever you get infected most Trojan tools have functionality to steal password or key-log your computer both effective methods of getting someone Facebook passwords.
How To Stop hackers From stealing my Facebook ?
The easiest method is to just enable “Two factor authentication Facebook” This means that from you normal computer you can log straight in to your account no problem, but if you log in on a different computer,phone or tablet Facebook with ask you for a pin number sent to you phone. So if you login from the UK normally and then try to login from France for example. Facebook will ask you for a pin number sent to your phone. In this manner if you password gets stolen or hacked. You will get a text message with a pin number and the hacker is unable to access your account and you are still safe. This is not a end all this can be bypassed if a hacker infects your phone.
There are also the old fail safes install antivirus software, keep everything up to date to lower the chance of you getting infected by drive by download attacks.
