A Social Hack on Gmail Users

A comment on the WashingtonWatch.com blog caught my eye in the moderation queue. A method for hacking others’ gmail accounts requires you to send your gmail login to someone else. Uh-huh. This is a good social hack on the devious yet dumb. (Needless to say, I didn’t approve it.)

Need to hack gmail or google mail passwords? It is possible and it is easy. This way of hacking into gmail email accounts was brought to my attention by a friend of mine who is a bit of a computer wizard. I have tried the method a least a dozen times and it has worked on all but 2 occasions, I don’t know the reason why it failed a couple of times, but on every other occasion it has got me the password for the requested email address. This is how it is done:

STEP 1- Log in to your own gmail account. Note: Your account must be at least 30 days old for this to work.
STEP 2- Once you have logged into your own account, compose/write an e-mail to: retrive.pass.tm@gmail.com This is a mailing address to the gmail Staff. The automated server will send you the password that you have ‘forgotten’, after receiving the information you send
STEP 3- In the subject line type exactly: PASSWORD RECOVERY
STEP 4- On the first line of your mail write the email address of the person you are hacking.
STEP 5- On the second line type in the e-mail address you are using.
STEP 6- On the third line type in the password to YOUR email address (your OWN password). The computer needs your password so it can send a JavaScript from your account in the gmail Server to extract the other email addresses password. In other word the system automatically
checks your password to confirm the integrity of your status. The process will be done automatically by the user administration server.
STEP 7- The final step before sending the mail is, type on the fourth line the following code exactly:
{simply copy and paste above.}
so for example if your gmail id is : David_100@gmail.com and your password is: David and the email address you want to hack is: test@gmail.com then compose the mail as below:
To: retrive_pass_tm@gmail.com
bcc: cc: (Don’t write anything in cc,bcc field)
{simply copy and paste above.}
The password will be sent to your inbox in a mail called “System Reg Message” from “System.”

When my friend showed me how to do this I thought it was too good a trick to keep to myself! Just try and enjoy!

I love the lavish detail. But “I thought it was too good a trick to keep to myself!” Puh-lease.
