Hack Facebook account by Cookie Stealing Attack

 

What Are Cookies ? And What Is The Use Of Stealing Cookies?

Cookies are the small files that stored on users computer by websites when a user visits them. The stored
Cookies are used by the web server to identify and authenticate the user .For example when a user
log on in Facebook a unique string is generated and one copy of it is saved on the server and other is
saved on the users browser as Cookies. Both are matched every time the user does any thing in his
account
So if we steal the victims cookie and inject them in our browser we will be able to imitate the victims
identity to the web server and thus we will be able to loging is his account . This is called as Side jacking
.The best thing about this is that we need not no the victims id or password all we need is the victims
cookie.
