I'LL TELL U LITTLE BIT BOUT CRACKING ,THE EASIEST SPFTWARE TO USE IS BRUTE FORCE ATTACKERS,BUT THEY R NOT USUALLY THE BEST TO HACK WITH
ANYWAYZ A GOOD ONE IS WWWHACK
BELOW IS SOME TIPS ON HACKING
(And a small digression about passwords)
If you are interested in site-access techniques, you may download here a simple 'bruteforcer' that you may use for ALL sites that have HTTP basic authentication. (that's when you try to get to a site and your BROWSER, not an HTML form, asks you for the password).
Download wwwhack, a very simple, yet effective, password busting program, quite useful to gain user access and study the directory structure of your commercial smut targets... wwhack, keeps TRACK of the sites you gained access into in a file called sites.dat and stores its passwords inside a file called password.txt. Older versions of wwwhack used a 'best before protection', in the following code you can see the relative snippet for a version which "expired" on 19 June. Of course this crap protection does not make any sense, better software [protections] are explained here, have a look by yourself...
:03723 83781005 cmp dword ptr [eax+10], 5
:03727 7F0C jg 00403735 ;; You could insert here 3F = jg 00403768
:03729 83781005 cmp dword ptr [eax+10], 5
:0372D 7539 jne 00403768
:0372F 83780C14 cmp dword ptr [eax+0C], 14
:03733 7E33 jle 00403768

:03735 8B5371 mov edx, dword ptr [ebx+71]
:03738 8B4204 mov eax, dword ptr [edx+04]
:0373B 6A00 push 0
:0373D 6A00 push 0
:0373F 68A5FC4200 push 0042FCA5 ;;"This copy of wwwhack expired on June 19"
Redirecting the jump (do not just nop the 7F0C, it won't work :-) will make this old copy of wwwhack work in modern times, yet as I said, this is just a very crude program, valid only for username/password combinations where BOTH strings are identical. You may of course slightly modify this old wwwhack code (or use a more recent version of this same appz) in order to try DIFFERENT STRINGS during your busting approaches (it is incredible how many sites you can bust with the older wwhack 'same strings' approach, though)
This said, wwhack is only a very primitive tool: in order to gain root and nuke some of the smut sites, as you probably know, you'll want to try also a very old trick: play with finger and with port 79 and 80... telnet your.commercial.target 80, for instance... but you'll learn far better tricks either on both my "CGI-wars" public pages one and two or following what you you'll read in my Simple email stalking techniques essay
a small digression about passwords
Wish I had a rupee for all the password I found out! As any hacker knows, the best password attack is NOT a brute force attack, but rather a 'stupidity based' attack. See, there are SO MANY passwords you must learn (at work to enter your Intranet, Internet, resume work, etc. at home to enter the web, free email, special sites, telnet, etc.), that 99 humans out of 100 will REUSE the same passwords more than once and will USE SIMPLE passwords most of the time.
As you'll soon notice using for instance the simple wwwhack program above, there are MANY that use as username fred and as password fred (have a look at the letters f,r,e and d on your keyboard and you'll understand why). I found HUNDRED of usernames: username and passwords: password, believe it or not...
There are also, very frequently, "site-related" passwords: if you want to access the financial times database, you shold start with financial and times, and it would probably work. The 'solution' to this problem is of course even easier to hack: if the site-protection gives passwords depending on an algorithmus (and few smut sites do this, because lusers want easy to remember passwords), just reverse the algo and you'r done.
Where to find passwords
Don't be silly: the vast majority of sites advertising free passwords to porn sites are actually smut sites themselves, luring traffic through deceptive advertising. There is at the moment a frantic battle for traffic on the smut sites (see my polite conversation between a commercial smutsite nuker and a commercial smutsite owner), smut sites that attracted their traffic pretending to offer 'free' pictures and videos are now increasingly offering 'free' passwords as well. These 'passwords' come directly from the smut sites that are purportedly being violated. The smut sites can pay to the pasword sites a FEE to feature ostensibly faked passwords. The 'pasword' sites sell advertising banner space to the smut sites and list paid-for faked passwords first (mostly the user will land in a banner-clicking nightmare in those cases). In my experience, four password sites out of five are in cahoots with the smut sites (that is a good reason to nuke some of them as well :-)
Other common password gathering methods
As strange as it may sound to us, all zombies use the SAME passwords again and again. So the simplest thing of the world is to fetch the less-protected occurrence of it, should you feel the necessity of having it.
Screen savers have notoriously weak protections (you just reboot in order to have access to the box) but the password chosen could be of some interest for you.
First of all let's see how you can bypass a screen saver password routine WITHOUT CLOSING the running session (useful - ahem - in corporate habitats :-)
CTRL+ALT+DEL and close the screen saver (duh)
Autorun for CDrom MUST be active.
burn a cdrom with this simple dos batchfile that must be launched by autorun.inf:
REM fravia's windoze95 screensaver bypasser
REN c:\windows\system c:\windows\bogus
Et voilą, the screen saver wont find its resources and will vanish.
Just rename back the subdir once you have access:
REM fravia's windoze95 screensaver bypasser
REN c:\windows\bogus c:\windows\system
