What is Social Engineering?


Social engineeringIn simple words, Social Engineering is an art of stealing someone's personal information and data in legal way. Hence, it means to know the person's security question answers by just querying him as usually. Always keep in mind that your victim should not be aware of this and only perform this attack when your victim is a good friend of you properly. This attack is now a days very famous and generally tried by newbie hackers. So therefore I decided to write a brief post on it.

What to Gain before doing this attack-

All you have to gain trust or be in a good relation with your victims.

How to perform this attack?

Before doing this attack, simply check your victims security question and other information by just going to his/her any registered account for ex- Facebook and now click on forgot password, then enter his/her email id and click submit. Now the next page is about your victims password retrieving methods like by security question, primary email address, mobile verification etc..Hence After that, follow the below steps carefully.

1. First of all simply chat with your friend (victim) as usual.

2. Now in the talk, simply refer to him about security question answer. for ex- if its security question is what is your library card number?, then just say that can I issue little bit books from your library card no. as my one is stolen. If he/she says yes, then just ask library card no. and say thank you to it.

3. Now once you get its security question answer, simply input it at forgotten password and reset it with your once.

That’s it! Enjoy….
