(proof.avi) Demonstration of logging into any Yahoo! account.
“Yahoo! Inc. is a leading global Internet communications, commerce and mediacompany that offers a comprehensive branded network of services to more than 274million individuals each month worldwide.
- Yahoo! Media RelationsMy initial goal in penetrating Yahoo!'s security was to take action against a constantinvasion of advertising bots, booters and credit card thieves that plague the chatsystem. Without sufficient measures in place to prevent these people coming back Ihave since realised it would be impossible for any individual to manage the problem.The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate the following..
1) It is possible for an intruder to gain unauthorized access to a Yahoo! Productionserver ( already well known )2) That access can then be used to reverse engineer the authentication system.3) The same access can also be used to access the user database.4) With the correct components it is possible to login in to any Yahoo! Account and in many cases take control of it.
