1) What is Common Sense?
Sound judgment not based on specialized knowledge; native good judgment.
So bascily it means you have the ability to make a good call. Place hand on hot stove? Well thats common sense.
2) Brain verse Software
So you have a cracker made by someone that knows what they are doing. That makes you Mr. Know-it-all right? WRONG. Big time no-no. As a programmer Iâ€™m glad they want to share with you but frankly you still know nothing but how to push a button and load a file. This does not make you â€œl33tâ€.
Now by gaining information about the account you want to attempt cracking then making a small wordlist containing what you believe will have the correct passcode in it and then running it threw your own cracker, manually, or someone elses is a BIG improvement.
Yes the best damn cracker known to man is someones mind. If you think â€œsomeones mindâ€ is a program that you can download please close this file now and may god have merce on us all.
So if this file is still open then I suggest poppinâ€™ the top off the two liter of mountain dew and conutine reading.
During my time I have come across an interesting theory. When people
of the net choice a password it is one that will not likey be guessed.
Most passwords can be found in common password list among the net.
Yet why spend hours running a password list of 100,000 words when you
could own the account with in 10 or 100 passwords?
So whats the key to making this work? PUBLIC MEMBER PROFILES!
People of the net take time and effort in making their password safe. Yet
something they can still remember. Then after you have an account whats
the point unless other people know its you on that screename. Profile editing time. So you fill out a few input queryies and update your profile.
How does that tell me their password? Well allow me to show a few examples
Real Name: Bob
okay well bob's password was "bobby"
Lastest News: Playing fetch with my black lab
okay well the password was "blacklab"
Okay well I replaced the name with dashes but left the numbers his password was â€œ5576â€
As you can see these people have gone and placed their
password for all
to see with out even knowing it. The above examples are true I did not
include the screen names to spare those peoples moronic minds.
Okay so your saying to yourself "all this profile has is sex of the user"
Well thats great but does it have an email? Okay if so go open ICQ and do
an "ICQ Whitepages Search" for that email maybe there is a profile in there.
Also the good thing about ICQ is a lot
of people fill out the information CORRECTLY! Yes even some of the "best" programmers and "hackers" fill out
ICQ forms correctly. I'll spare the name of this programmer which I info cracked but his information was all there "UK, 3/24/1984" and yes it worked.
Also check for homepages. Those are great even if it has little information about them.
Good tip is finding the State and City they live in. Then go to www.whitepages.com and do a â€œFind ZipCodeâ€ search. Password could be the zipcode. If they have a girlfriend password could simply be her name maybe even some ascii then her name.
Example: Jessica, jessica, ~!@jessica@!~
Brain hurt yet? Gooooood!
4) Crackinâ€™ It
So you have sent all this time, cough ten minutes cough, and now you want to crack that son of a bitch.
Open notepad.exe which comes with every standard windows.
Type a word that could be the passcode and hit enter and type another.
Remember it could be in caps or every other letter could be caped so try those also.
HAVE FUN MY YOUNG ONE. With this simple common sense
method it takes less time to own a name and when you finally do crack the name you enjoy it more trust me.
