The first step to understanding honeypots is defining what a honeypot is. This can be harder then it sounds. Unlike firewalls or Intrusion Detection Systems, honeypots do not solve a specific problem. Instead, they are a highly flexible tool that comes in many shapes and sizes. They can do everything from detecting encrypted attacks in IPv6 networks to capturing the latest in on-line credit card fraud. Its is this flexibility that gives honeypots their true power. It is also this flexibility that can make them challenging to define and understand. As such, I use the following definition to define what a honeypot is.

A honeypot is an information system resource whose value lies in unauthorized or illicit use of that resource.

A honeypot is valuable as a surveillance and early-warning tool. While it is often a computer, a honeypot can take other forms, such as files or data records, or even unused IP address space. A honeypot that masquerades as an open proxy to monitor and record those using the system is known as a "sugarcane". Honeypots should have no production value, and hence should not see any legitimate traffic or activity. Whatever they capture is therefore malicious or unauthorized. One practical application of this is the spamtrap - a honeypot that thwarts spam by masquerading as a type of system abused by spammers. These honeypots categorize trapped material 100% accurately: it is all illicit.

Honeypots can carry risks to a network, and must be handled with care. If they are not properly walled off, an attacker can use them to break into a system.

Victim hosts are an active network counter-intrusion tool. These computers run special software, designed to appear to an intruder as being important and worth looking into. In reality, these programs are dummies, and their patterns are constructed specifically to foster interest in attackers. The software installed on, and run by, victim hosts is dual purpose. First, these dummy programs keep a network intruder occupied looking for valuable information where none exists, effectively convincing an intruder to isolate themselves in what is truly an unimportant part of the network. This decoy strategy is designed to keep an intruder from getting bored and heading into truly security-critical systems. The second part of the victim host strategy is intelligence gathering. Once an intruder has broken into the victim host, the machine or a network administrator can examine the intrusion methods used by the intruder. This intelligence can be used to build specific countermeasures to intrusion techniques, making truly important systems on the network less vulnerable to intrusion.

Honeypots can be classified based on their deployment and based on their level of involvement. Based on the deployment, honeypots may be classified as

   1. Production Honeypots
   2. Research Honeypots

Production honeypots are easy to use, capture only limited information, and are used primarily by companies or corporations; Production honeypots are placed inside the production network with other production servers by an organization to improve their overall state of security. Normally, production honeypots are low-interaction honeypots, which are easier to deploy. They give less information about the attacks or attackers than research honeypots do. The purpose of a production honeypot is to help mitigate risk in an organization. The honeypot adds value to the security measures of an organization.

Research honeypots are run by a volunteer, non-profit research organization or an educational institution to gather information about the motives and tactics of the Blackhat community targeting different networks. These honeypots do not add direct value to a specific organization. Instead they are used to research the threats organizations face, and to learn how to better protect against those threats. This information is then used to protect against those threats. Research honeypots are complex to deploy and maintain, capture extensive information, and are used primarily by research, military, or government organizations.

Just as honeypots are weapons against spammers, honeypot detection systems are spammer-employed counter-weapons. As detection systems would likely use unique characteristics of specific honeypots to identify them, a great deal of honeypots in use makes the set of unique characteristics larger and more daunting to those seeking to detect and thereby identify them. This is an unusual circumstance in software: a situation in which "versionitis" (a large number of versions of the same software, all differing slightly from each other) can be beneficial. There's also an advantage in having some easy-to-detect honeypots deployed. Fred Cohen, the inventor of the Deception Toolkit, even argues that every system running his honeypot should have a deception port that adversaries can use to detect the honeypot. Cohen believes that this might deter adversaries.

Two or more honeypots on a network form a honeynet. Typically, a honeynet is used for monitoring a larger and/or more diverse network in which one honeypot may not be sufficient. Honeynets and honeypots are usually implemented as parts of larger network intrusion detection systems. A honeyfarm is a centralized collection of honeypots and analysis tools.

The concept of the honeynet first began in 1999 when Lance Spitzner, founder of the Honeynet Project, published the paper "To Build a Honeypot":

    "A honeynet is a network of high interaction honeypots that simulates a production network and configured such that all activity is monitored, recorded and in a degree, discreetly regulated"


Honey Drive : HoneyPot In the Box, HoneyDrive is a virtual hard disk drive (VMDK format) with Ubuntu Server 11.10 32-bit edition installed. It contains various honeypot systems such as Kippo SSH honeypot, Dionaea malware honeypot and Honeyd. Additionally it includes useful scripts and utilities to analyze and visualize the data it captures. Lastly, other helpful tools like tshark (command-line Wireshark), pdftools, etc. are also present. Read more

Value of Honeypots:

Now that we have understanding of two general categories of honepyots, we can focus on their value. Specifically, how we can use honeypots. Once again, we have two general categories, honeypots can be used for production purposes or research. When used for production purposes, honeypots are protecting an organization. This would include preventing, detecting, or helping organizations respond to an attack. When used for research purposes, honeypots are being used to collect information. This information has different value to different organizations. Some may want to be studying trends in attacker activity, while others are interested in early warning and prediction, or law enforcement. In general, low-interaction honeypots are often used for production purposes, while high-interaction honeypots are used for research purposes. However, either type of honeypot can be used for either purpose. When used for production purposes, honeypots can protect organizations in one of three ways; prevention, detection, and response. We will take a more in-depth look at how a honeypot can work in all three.

Honeypots can help prevent attacks in several ways. The first is against automated attacks, such as worms or auto-rooters. These attacks are based on tools that randomly scan entire networks looking for vulnerable systems. If vulnerable systems are found, these automated tools will then attack and take over the system (with worms self-replicating, copying themselves to the victim). One way that honeypots can help defend against such attacks is slowing their scanning down, potentially even stopping them. Called sticky honeypots, these solutions monitor unused IP space. When probed by such scanning activity, these honeypots interact with and slow the attacker down. They do this using a variety of TCP tricks, such as a Windows size of zero, putting the attacker into a holding pattern. This is excellent for slowing down or preventing the spread of a worm that has penetrated your internal organization. One such example of a sticky honeypot is LaBrea Tarpit. Sticky honeypots are most often low-interaction solutions (you can almost call them 'no-interaction solutions', as they slow the attacker down to a crawl :). Honeypots can also be protect your organization from human attackers. The concept is deception or deterrence. The idea is to confuse an attacker, to make him waste his time and resources interacting with honeypots. Meanwhile, your organization has detected the attacker's activity and have the time to respond and stop the attacker. This can be even taken one step farther. If an attacker knows your organization is using honeypots, but does not know which systems are honeypots and which systems are legitimate computers, they may be concerned about being caught by honeypots and decided not to attack your organizations. Thus the honeypot deters the attacker. An example of a honeypot designed to do this is Deception Toolkit, a low-interaction honeypot.

The second way honeypots can help protect an organization is through detection. Detection is critical, its purpose is to identify a failure or breakdown in prevention. Regardless of how secure an organization is, there will always be failures, if for no other reasons then humans are involved in the process. By detecting an attacker, you can quickly react to them, stopping or mitigating the damage they do. Tradtionally, detection has proven extremely difficult to do. Technologies such as IDS sensors and systems logs haven proven ineffective for several reasons. They generate far too much data, large percentage of false positives, inability to detect new attacks, and the inability to work in encrypted or IPv6 environments. Honeypots excel at detection, addressing many of these problems of traditional detection. Honeypots reduce false positives by capturing small data sets of high value, capture unknown attacks such as new exploits or polymorphic shellcode, and work in encrypted and IPv6 environments. You can learn more about this in the paper Honeypots: Simple, Cost Effective Detection. In general, low-interaction honeypots make the best solutions for detection. They are easier to deploy and maintain then high-interaction honeypots and have reduced risk.

The third and final way a honeypot can help protect an organization is in reponse. Once an organization has detected a failure, how do they respond? This can often be one of the greatest challenges an organization faces. There is often little information on who the attacker is, how they got in, or how much damage they have done. In these situations detailed information on the attacker's activity are critical. There are two problems compounding incidence response. First, often the very systems compromised cannot be taken offline to analyze. Production systems, such as an organization's mail server, are so critical that even though its been hacked, security professionals may not be able to take the system down and do a proper forensic analysis. Instead, they are limited to analyze the live system while still providing production services. This cripiles the ability to analyze what happend, how much damage the attacker has done, and even if the attacker has broken into other systems. The other problem is even if the system is pulled offline, there is so much data pollution it can be very difficult to determine what the bad guy did. By data pollution, I mean there has been so much activity (user's logging in, mail accounts read, files written to databases, etc) it can be difficult to determine what is normal day-to-day activity, and what is the attacker. Honeypots can help address both problems. Honeypots make an excellent incident resonse tool, as they can quickly and easily be taken offline for a full forensic analysis, without impacting day-to-day business operations. Also, the only activity a honeypot captures is unauthorized or malicious activity. This makes hacked honeypots much easier to analyze then hacked production systems, as any data you retrieve from a honeypot is most likely related to the attacker. The value honeypots provide here is quickly giving organizations the in-depth information they need to rapidly and effectively respond to an incident. In general, high-interaction honeypots make the best solution for response. To respond to an intruder, you need in-depth knowledge on what they did, how they broke in, and the tools they used. For that type of data you most likely need the capabilities of a high-interaction honeypot.

Hackers Types

Hackers are three types:-
1.    White hat hacker
2.    Gray hat hacker 
3.    Black hat hacker

White Hat and Grey Hat Hacker & What is the Real Difference?
What is worse, the public is not able to understand terms like grey hat, white hat, Linux OS, or cracker.
However, the truth is that the subculture of the hacker world is more complex than we think. Especially if we consider that, these are very intelligent people.

So, what is ethical hacking white hat and how does it differentiate from grey hackers? The only way to find out is to submerge ourselves in the world of hackers and understand, at least, the most basic concepts. 


What Is A White Hat Hacker?
A hacker can be a wiz kid who spends too much time with computers and suddenly finds himself submerged in the world of  cyber-security or criminal conspirators. On the other hand, he can be a master criminal who wants to obtain huge amounts of money for him, or even worse, dominate the world.
In the movie Matrix, the concept of hackers changed a bit. Although the agents of the Matrix considered them terrorists, the truth is that they were rebels fighting for the liberty of humanity. Things do not need to reach that extreme, though. We are not at war with intelligent ma chines so that kind of scenario is a bit dramatic.

Therefore, a hacker is an individual who is capable of modifying computer hardware, or software. They made their appearance before the advent of computers, when determined individuals were fascinated with the possibility of modifying machines. For example, entering a determine code in a telephone in order to make free international calls.

 When computers appeared, this people found a new realm where they could exploit their skills. Now they were not limited to the constraints of the physical world, instead, they could travel through the virtual world of computers. Before the internet, they used Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) to communicate and exchange information. However, the real explosion occurred when the Internet appeared.

Today, anyone can become a hacker. Within that denomination, there are three types of hackers. The first one is the black hacker, also known as a cracker, someone who uses his computer knowledge in criminal activities in order to obtain personal benefits. A typical example is a person who exploits the weaknesses of the systems of a financial institution for making some money.

On the other side is the white hat hacker. Although white hat hacking can be considered similar to a black hacker, there is an important difference. A white hacker does it with no criminal intention in mind. Companies around the world, who want to test their systems, contract white hackers. They will test how secure are their systems, and point any faults that they may found. If you want to become a hacker with a white hat, Linux, a PC and an internet connection is all you need.

Grey Hat Hackers
A grey hat hacker is someone who is in between these two concepts. He may use his skills for legal or illegal acts, but not for personal gains. Grey hackers use their skills in
order to prove themselves that they can accomplish a determined feat, but never do it in order to make money out of it. The moment they cross that boundary, they become black hackers.
For example, they may hack the computer network of a public agency, let us say, NOAA. That is a federal crime. 

If the authorities capture them, they will feel the long arm of justice. However, if they only get inside, and post, let us say, their handle, and get out without causing any kind of damage, then they can be considered grey hackers.

If you want to know more about hackers, then you can attend one of their annual conventions. Every year, hackers from all over the US, and from different parts of the world, reunite and meet at DEF CON. These conventions are much concurred. In the last one, 6,600 people attended it.

Every year, DEF CON is celebrated at Las Vegas, Nevada. However, hackers are not the only ones who go to this event. There are also computer journalists, computer security professionals, lawyers, and employees of the federal government. The event is composed by tracks of different kind, all of them related, in some way, to the world of hackers (computer security, worms, viruses, new technologies, coding, etc). Besides the tracks, there are contests that involve hacking computers, l ock picking and even robot related events. Ethical hacking, white hat hacking or whatever names you wish to use, at the end, it has a purpose: to protect the systems of organizations, public or private, around the world. After all, hackers can now be located anywhere, and they can be counted by the millions. Soon, concepts like white hat, linux operating system or grey hat will become common knowledge. A real proof of how much has our society been influenced by technology.

Black Hat Hackers

Black hat hackers have become the iconic image of all hackers around the world. For the majority of computer users, the word hacker has become a synonym for social misfits and criminals.
Of course, that is an injustice created by our own interpretation of the mass media, so it is important for us to learn what a hacker is and what a black hacker (or cracker) does. So, let's learn about black hat techniques and how they make our lives a little more difficult.
Black hat is used to describe a hacker (or, if you prefer, cracker) who breaks into a computer system or network with malicious intent. Unlike a white hat hacker, the black hat hacker takes advantage of the break-in, perhaps destroying files or stealing data for some future purpose. The black hat hacker may also make the exploit known to other hackers and/or the public without notifying the victim. This gives others the opportunity to exploit the vulnerability before the organization is able to secure it.

What Is Black Hat Hacking?
A black hat hacker, also known as a cracker or a dark side hacker (this last definition is a direct reference to the Star Wars movies and the dark side of the force), is someone who uses his skills with a criminal intent. Some examples are: cracking bank accounts in order to make transfernces to their own accounts, stealing information to be sold in the black market, or attacking the computer network of an organization for money.

Some famous cases of black hat hacking include Kevin Mitnick, who used his black hat hackers skills to enter the computers of organizations such as Nokia, Fujitsu, Motorola and Sun Microsystems (it must be mentioned that he is now a white hat hacker); Kevin Poulsen, who took control of all the phone lines in Los Angeles in order to win a radio contest (the prize was a Porsche 944 S2); and Vladimir Levin, which is the handle of the mastermind behind the stealing of $10'000,000 to Citigrou. 

Hack Windows Admin

Today, i am going to show you many aspects of the Windows Password Storage path, Method of Encryption, and breaking into Windows by cracking the admin password. We need this often for many reasons:
1) Sometime we have forgotten our old password and Hint isn't helping out.
2) We want to break into someone computer to get the information.
3) Just want to take revenge from someone.
4) Stealing computer data.

Lets, take a deep dive in Cracking Windows password and also where these are stored and in which format.

SAM file and Password Hashes~Place where these passwords are stored in Hashes:
Password Hashes - When you type your password into a Windows NT, 2000, or XP login Windows Seven, Vista etc Windows encrypts your password using a specific encryption scheme that turns your password into something that looks like this:

This is a password Hash. This is what is actually being checked against when you type your password in. It encrypts what you typed and bounces it against what is stored in the Registry and/or SAM File. 
You can break this hash password from
SAM File - Holds the user names and password hashes for every account on the local machine, or domain if it is a domain controller.

Location of SAM/Hashes:
You can find what you're looking for in several locations on a given machine.
It can be found on the hard drive in the folder %systemroot%system32config (i-eC:\windows\system32\config). However this folder is locked to all accounts including Administrator while the machine is running. The only account that can access the SAM file during operation is the "System" account.

The second location of the SAM or corresponding hashes can be found in the registry. It can be found under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESAM. This is also locked to all users, including Administrator, while the machine is in use.(GO to Run and Type Regedit and Hit enter, Now scroll to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESAM, However you may not access to it.)

So the two (Some other also) locations of the SAMHashes are:
- %systemroot%system32config
- In the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESAM
Cracking or Breaking Into Admin Account:
How to get Hashes form SAM file?
Well, Below are the methods to do so:
1) Well, the easiest way to do this is to boot your target machine to an alternate OS like
NTFSDOS or Linux and just copy the SAM from the %systemroot%system32config  folder. 
It's quick, it's easy, and it's effective. You can get a copy of NTFSDOS from Sysinternals( The regular version of NTFSDOS is freeware, which is always nice, but only allows for Read-Only access. This should be fine for what you want to do, however, if you're the kind of person that just has to have total control and has some money to burn. NTFSDOS Pro, which is also by Sysinternals has read/write access but it'll cost you $299.

2) You can also get password hashes by using pwdump2 (Google It to get software ~ Search at pwdump uses .DLL injection in order to use the system account to view and get the password hashes stored in the registry. It then obtains the hashes from the registry and stores them in a handy little text file that you can then  paste them into a password cracking utility like l0phtcrack or John the ripper (Linux Based works well) also cain and abel can be used. 

3) Import Hashes directly from l0phtcrack, and let them open to you by cracking.

Obtained Hashes? Now crack them:
Well, as i have said that these can't be reversed but somehow automated famous cracking softwares can be used to achieve the target. Yes, it is possible, All we have to do is to have a bit patience. The software will use a lot of strings and will compare these hashes also, Inshort it will decode them.
1) John the Ripper - John the Ripper is to many, the old standby password cracker. It is command line which makes it nice if you're doing some scripting, and best of all it's free and in open source. The only real thing that JtR is lacking is the ability to launch Brute Force attacks against your password file. But look at it this way, even though it is only a dictionary cracker, that will probably be all you need. I would say that in my experience I can find about 85-90% of the passwords in a given file by using just a dictionary attack.

L0phtCrack - Probably the most wildly popular password cracker out there. L0phtCrack is sold by the folks at @Stake. And with a pricetag of $249 for a single user license it sure seems like every one owns it. This is probably the nicest password cracker you will ever see. With the ability to import hashes directly from the registry pwdump and dictionary, hybrid, and brute-force capabilities. No password should last long. Well, I shouldn't say "no password". But almost all will fall to L0phtCrack given enough time.

Making Your Own Password in Windows: 
Injecting Password Hashes into the SAM:
Easiest ways to gain Administrator privileges on a machine, is by injecting your own password hashes into the SAM file. In order to do this you will need physical access to the machine and a brain larger than a peanut. Using a utility called "
chntpw" by Petter Nordhal-Hagen you can inject whatever password you wish into the SAM file of any NT, 2000, or XP machine thereby giving you total control, just burn the .iso on a disk and use it. I would give a tip like backing up the SAM file first by using an alternate OS.Make a USB disk of linux or Windows Live dsik can also work. Go in, inject the password of your choosing. Login using your new password. Do what you need to do. Then restore the original SAM so that no one will know that i was hacked.

You need to have admin access to perform this change from the command line. This is an especially handy trick if you want to change a password on an account but you’ve forgotten the original (going through the Control Panel can require confirmation of the old password).

Now we hack Admin Password To verify the user name, by simply typing net user, I get a list of all the user names on that windows machine. Now, go to the command prompt and enter:

cd windows\system32
net user  
If there are people near you and you don’t want them to see the password you type, enter:
net user *
                                                             E.g. > net user username *
                                                      > Type a password for the user:
                                                      > Confirm the password:

Another Easy method, Using  ophcrack to Hack into Admin Account:
Ophcrack is a Windows password cracker based on a time-memory trade-off using rainbow tables. This is a new variant of Hellman's original trade-off, with better performance. It recovers 99.9% of alphanumeric passwords in seconds.

This is a type of offline cracking, Just grab .iso of ophcrack from here. Burn it and enjoy using.
1.  Opchrack can crack passwords for Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.
2. Ophcrack can recover 99.9% of passwords from Windows XP, usually in a matter of seconds. Any  14-character or smaller password that uses any combination of numbers, small letters, and capital letters should be crackable.
3.  Ophcrack can recover 99% of passwords from Windows 7 or Windows Vista. A dictionary attack is used in Windows 7 and Vista.
4.  The Ophcrack LiveCD option allows for completely automatic password recovery.
5.  LiveCD method requires no installation in Windows, making it a safe alternative to many other password recovery tools.
6.  No Windows passwords need to be known to use the Ophcrack LiveCD to crack your Windows passwords.
I think this ophcrack method is far better, Try this one just get a disk and write it, Or else USB disk can aslo be used.

Some security Tips ~ Making strong passwords:
Now, You might have come to know that how passwords can be cracked, So there are some tips for you.
1) Do not make common passwords like 123456 or the one of your own name.
2) Use @, *, # or other symbols in your passwords to ensure maximum security in this case John the ripper and Ophcrack and also other cracking tools may take long time, it will be frustrating for hacker.
3) Keep changing your password. So, that if long time is taken by one hash to decode, until it decodes you have generated another hash.

Hack Instagram Account

Nir Goldshlager Founder of Break Security find the critical vulnerability in Instagram. Succesful hack allows attacker to access private photos and ability to delete victim's photos, edit comment and post new photos.

1. Hijack Instagram accounts using the Instagram OAuth (

2. Hijack Instagram accounts using the Facebook OAuth Dialog (

He reported a few issues to Instagram Include OAuth Attacks, But  the acquisition didn’t closed yet and Facebook Security was unable to put their hands on security issues in Instagram, So I was waiting, Waiting like a good WhiteCollar,  Then Facebook Security send me a message, They say even that they was unable to fix this issues because the acquisition didn’t closed yet, They will still payout for this vulnerabilities,

So, first,  checked Instagram’s OAuth protocol:  (

While researching Instagram’s security parameters, Nir noticed that Facebook Security had produced some impressive results in regard to their own Instagram OAuth vulnerabilities. They essentially blocked access to any and all files, folders, and subdomains by validate the redirect_uri parameter.


In addition, redirection was only allowed to go to the owner app domain.
Thus, hacker needed to locate some other way to get past their protection. Further complicating the issue was the fact that you can’t use a site redirection / XSS on the victim’s owner app. This is because you have no access to the files or folders on the owner app domain through the redirect_uri parameter.

Block Files Folders

For example:

Allow request:

Block requests:




Redirect_uri=,? or any special sign

As it stands, it appears that the redirect_uri is invulnerable to OAuth attacks.

While researching, I came upon a sneaky bypass. If the attacker uses a suffix trick on the owner app domain, they can bypass the Instagram OAuth and then send the access_token code to their own domain.

For instance:

Let’s say Nir app client_id in Instagram is 33221863xxx and my domain is

In this case, the redirect_uri parameter should allow redirection only to my domain (, right? What happens when we change the suffix in the domain to something like:

In this example, the attacker can send the access_token, code straight to For the attack to be successful, of course, the attacker will have to buy the new domain (in this case,

PoC Bypass (Fixed By Facebook Security Team):

Game Over.

Bug 2.

With this bug, Nir used the Instagram client_id value through the Facebook OAuth (

When you use the Instagram app, it can be integrated with Facebook.

For example:

When a user wants to upload their Instagram photos to Facebook, they allow this interaction and integration to take place.

Instagram Would like to access your public profile and friend list

Nir discovered that an attacker can use virtually any domain in the redirect_uri, next parameter. This was actually sort of baffling, and I don’t know why this happened, but it worked. You can literally use any domain in redirect_uri, next parameter via the redirect_uri in Instagram client_id.

This effectively allows the attacker to steal the access_token of any Instagram user,

With the access_token the attacker will be able to post on the victim behalf in his Facebook account, Access to his private friends list.

PoC (Facebook Already fixed this issue):

Hack Facebook Account

Hence we know that there are many techniques for Hack Facebook Account like Phishing Attacks, Keylogging and other Social techniques but today we are going to see how to hack passwords using new feature introduced by Facebook the 3 Trusted Friends Password Recovery Feature in this what happens if you have lost your password and you don’t have any access to your default email address than this feature will handy by sending request to your 3 trusted friends and hence gaining your account password again.
For this technique you need to create 3 fake Facebook account and you need to surely add these as friends into your victims account whose account you are going to hack.

After success full addition of your fake accounts into victims account as friends follow the below steps .:

3. After entering everything check it again and click on search.

4. After succeful search for the user Facebook will show some information about how many emails are linked to the account and there is simple option saying 
No Longer Access to These click that one.

5. Now it will promote you to enter a new email address on which you will get the password resetting option so enter your email address I suggest you creating a Fake or Temporary email address for safety purpose.

6. Than it will promote you to enter the Security well if you have some security guess about that one than that’s ok but if you don’t know it than simply enter 3 wrong answers and it will take you to the 3 trusted friends recovery page like below.

7. Now just click continue and facebook will ask you to choose 3 trusted friends choose the 3 fake profiles of your which you created and added into the victims account. 
8. After selecting 3 accounts facebook will send security codes to these accounts just enter these codes and you will get Password Resetting email from Facebook on the account you created in Step 5

That’s it now you are successful in Hacking Facebook Password with the 3 Trusted Friends Method.

Note: This Vulnerability has been fixed by Facebook
