(SOLVED) How Session Hijacking Is Done?

The attacker can compromise the session token by using malicious code or programs running at the client-side 🙈 The example shows how the attacker could use an XSS attack to steal the session token 😁 If an attacker sends a crafted link to the victim with the malicious JavaScript, when the victim clicks on the link, the JavaScript will run and complete the’s having instructions made by the attacker 😊 The example in figure 3 uses an XSS attack to show the cookie value of the current session; using the same technique it’s possible to create a specific JavaScript code that will send the cookie to the attacker.
Due to the sheer number of websites that we access each day, session hijacking is a very scary idea. Consider how many websites you use daily to log into with the same credentials. For the vast majority of us, it’s a number that’s much higher than just one or two. It’s also a number that has most likely been steadily growing over time, as more and more online services become a part of our increasingly “connected” lifestyles. Since then, store extremely sensitive information all over the place online The effects of these numbers and credit cards can prove to be very damaging.

Locating the target user is the first step of a session hijack attack. The attackers search for two things before they launch an attack. One, they seek out networks with high usage. These networks provide anonymity and a steady supply of victims, both of which help them in their attacks. Due to their vulnerability, insecure designs, such as Telnet and FTP (file transmission protocol), make them easy targets. To locate vulnerable protocols such as FTP, Telnet and rlogin, packet sniffing software is able to monitor network traffic. You can use port scanning software to find servers with FTP, Telnet or rlogin ports opened. Demonta Kilpatrick, New York City USA (last modification 19 days ago)

In a session hijacking attack, the hacker steals the user’s session token and uses it to access the user’s account. There are several ways that an attacker can stage a session hijacking attack, such as inflicting the user’s device with a malware that monitors and steals session data. An alternative method to session hijacking is cross-site scripting. This involves an attacker uploading a malicious file. programming script into a webpage that the user frequently visits and forces the user’s computer To send session cookie data to server. Other methods of session hijacking leverage flaws in the application’s programming to guess or reveal session cookie information.

According to the experts, heimdalsecurity.com, session hijacking stands for a cyberattack where a malicious hacker places himself in between your computer and the website’s server while you are engaged in an active computer session (the time between you first log into your bank account, and then log off after your operation, for example) in order to steal it. Every activity is actively monitored by the hacker. happens on your accountIt can kick you out, or even take full control. This is also known as cookie sidejacking, or cookie hijacking. The hacker has access to your session cookie and can impersonate you by performing actions such as transferring money to your account.
