Are you curious how hackers easily hack your facebook account? No? Let’s see how they do it. I am going to share how hackers hack a facebook account using Desktop Phishing.

Difference b/w Desktop Phishing and Simple Phishing
In simple, victim types the URL where our fake page is stored.. This make victim’s mind in doubt. For simple phishing, you can check out this article, how to hack a facebook account with simple phishing.

2. fake page

Steps to follow

After installiing wamp server, ‘start all services’.

Now copy your fake page and paste it in the following directory.

Now we’re gonna do the most important part of desktop phishing.
We’re going to change hosts files. This will make link to stay as it typed.
To open hosts file, run notepad ‘as administrator’. And goto C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and choose hosts files.
If nothing appeared in the folder, click on all files, where is txt.

After getting it opened, make a lil change in it.
now at the end of the text in hosts file, we enter as follow.

127.0.0.1 www.facebook.com
127.0.0.1 facebook.com

And SAVE IT.

We’ve done all…
Now whenever victim visits facebook.com/ he’ll get onto our fake page and when he’ll enter email and password and hit login button.

His/her email and password will be saved in the following directory.
C:\wamp\www\usernames or passwords
