Hacking Techniques 2. Phishing – The Difficult Way

The other common way to hack passwords or online accounts is via Phishing. This is the most widely used technique by many hackers to gain access to Facebook and other social networking websites. This method will make use of a fake login page (often called as spoofed web page) which will exactly resemble the original one. Say for example, a spoofed web page of Facebook looks exactly same as that of the original page. This page is actually created by the hacker and is hosted on his own server. Once the victim enters his/her password in such a fake login page, the login details are stolen away by the hacker.

Most Internet users would easily fall prey to such online phishing scams. Thus, phishing scams trick users in such a way that, they themselves give away their passwords. But phishing requires specialized knowledge and high level skills to implement. Therefore, it would not be possible for a noob user to attempt this trick. It is a punishable offense too. So, I would recommend that you stay away from phishing and make use of the keyloggers since it is the easiest and safest way to gain access to any online account. (collected)
