1. Welcome to the basic NETBIOS document created by aCId_rAIn. This document will teach you some simple things about NETBIOS, what it does, how to use it, how to hack with it, and some other simple DOS commands that will be useful to you in the future. THIS DOCUMENT IS FOR NEWBIEZ ONLY!!! If you are NOT a newbie then don’t go any farther reading this because if you’re smart enough you probably already know it all. So don’t waste yourt time reading something that you already know.

1. Hardware and Firmware

1a. The BIOS
The BIOS, short for Basic Input/Output Services, is the control program of the PC. It is responsible for starting up your computer, transferring control of the system to your operating system, and for handling other low-level functions, such as disk access.
NOTE that the BIOS is not a software program, insofar as it is not purged from memory when you turn off the computer. It’s
firmware, which is basically software on a chip.
A convenient little feature that most BIOS manufacturers include is a startup password. This prevents access to the system until you enter the correct password.
If you can get access to the system after the password has been entered, then there are numerous software-based BIOS password extractors available from your local H/P/A/V site.
NETBIOS/NBTSTAT – What does it do?

2. NETBIOS, also known as NBTSTAT is a program run on the Windows system and is used for identifying a remote network or computer for file sharing enabled. We can expoit systems using this method. It may be old but on home pc’s sometimes it still works great. You can use it on your friend at home or something. I don’t care what you do, but remember, that you are reading this document because you want to learn. So I am going to teach you. Ok. So, you ask, “How do i get to NBTSTAT?” Well, there are two ways, but one’s faster.
Method 1:Start>Programs>MSDOS PROMPT>Type NBTSTAT
Method 2:Start>Run>Type Command>Type NBTSTAT
(Note: Please, help your poor soul if that isn’t like feeding you with a baby spoon.)
Ok! Now since you’re in the DOS command under NBTSTAT, you’re probably wondering what all that crap is that’s on your screen. These are the commands you may use. I’m only going to give you what you need to know since you are striving to be l33t. Your screen should look like the following:

NBTSTAT [ [-a RemoteName] [-A IP address] [-c] [-n]
[-r] [-R] [-RR] [-s] [-S] [interval] ]
-a (adapter status) Lists the remote machine’s name table given its name
-A (Adapter status) Lists the remote machine’s name table given its IP address.
-c (cache) Lists NBT’s cache of remote [machine] names and their IP addresses
-n (names) Lists local NetBIOS names.
-r (resolved) Lists names resolved by broadcast and via WINS
-R (Reload) Purges and reloads the remote cache name table
-S (Sessions) Lists sessions table with the destination IP addresses
-s (sessions) Lists sessions table converting destination IP addresses to computer NETBIOS names.
-RR (ReleaseRefresh) Sends Name Release packets to WINS and then, starts Refresh
RemoteName Remote host machine name.
IP address Dotted decimal representation of the IP address.
interval Redisplays selected statistics, pausing interval seconds between each display. Press Ctrl+C to stop redisplaying
The only two commands that are going to be used and here they are:
-a (adapter status) Lists the remote machine’s name table given its name
-A (Adapter status) Lists the remote machine’s name table given its IP address.
Host Names

3. Now, the -a means that you will type in the HOST NAME of the person’s computer that you are trying to access. Just in case you don’t have any idea what a Host Name looks like here’s an example.
there are many variations of these adresses. For each different address you see there is a new ISP assigned to that computer. look at the difference.
these are differnet host names as you can see, and, by identifying the last couple words you will be able to tell that these are two computers on two different ISPs. Now, here are two host names on the same ISP but a different located server.
IP Addresses
4. You can resolce these host names if you want to the IP address (Internet Protocol)
IP addresses range in different numbers. An IP looks like this:
Most times you can tell if a computer is running on a cable connection because of the IP address’s numbers. On faster connections, usually the first two numbers are low. here’s a cable connection IP.
on dialup connections IP’s are higher, like this:
notice the 208 is higher than the 24 which is the cable connection.
Some companies make IP addresses like this to fool the hacker into believing it’s a dialup, as a hacker would expect something big, like a T3 or an OC-18. Anyway This gives you an idea on IP addresses which you will be using on the nbtstat command.
Getting The IP Through DC (Direct Connection)
5. First. You’re going to need to find his IP or host name. Either will work. If you are on mIRC You can get it by typing /whois (nick) …where (nick) is the persons nickname without parenthesis. you will either get a host name or an IP. copy it down. If you do not get it or you are not using mIRC then you must direct connect to their computer or you may use a sniffer to figure out his IP or host name. It’s actually better to do it without the sniffer because most sniffers do not work now-a-days. So you want to establish a direct connection to their computer. OK, what is a direct connection? When you are:
Sending a file to their computer you are directly connected.
AOL INSTANT MESSENGER allows a Direct Connection to the user if accepted.
ICQ when sending a file or a chat request acception allows a direct connection.
Any time you are sending a file. You are directly connected. (Assuming you know the user is not using a proxy server.)
Voice Chatting on Yahoo establishes a direct connection.
If you have none of these programs, either i suggest you get one, get a sniffer, or read this next statement.
If you have any way of sending thema link to your site that enables site traffic statistics, and you can log in, send a link to your site, then check the stats and get the IP of the last visitor. It’s a simple and easy method i use. It even fool some smarter hackers, because it catches them off guard. Anyway, once you are directly
connected use either of the two methods i showed you earlier and get into DOS. Type NETSTAT -n. NETSTAT is a program that’s name is short for NET STATISTICS. It will show you all computers connected to yours. (This is also helpful if you think you are being hacked by a trojan horse and is on a port that you know such as Sub Seven: 27374.) Your screen should look like this showing the connections to your computer:
Active Connections
Proto Local Address Foreign Address State
The first line indicated the Protocol (language) that is being used by the two computers.
TCP (Transfer Control Protocol) is being used in this and is most widely used.
Local address shows your IP address, or the IP address of the system you on.
Foreign address shows the address of the computer connected to yours.
State tells you what kind of connection is being made ESTABLISHED – means it will stay connected to you as long as you are on the program or as long as the computer is allowing or is needing the other computers connection to it. CLOSE_WAIT means the connection closes at times and waits until it is needed or you resume connection to be made again. One that isn’t on the list is TIME_WAIT which means it is timed. Most Ads that run on AOL are using TIME_WAIT states.
the way you know the person is directly connected to your computer is because of this:
Active Connections
Proto Local Address Foreign Address State
Notice the host name is included in the fourth line instead of the IP address on all. This is almost ALWAYS, the other computer that is connected to you. So here, now, you have the host name:
If the host name is not listed and the IP is then it NO PROBLEM because either one works exactly the same. I am using host name as an example. Ok so now you have the IP and/or host name of the remote system you want to connect to. Time to hack!
Open up your DOS command. Open up NBTSTAT by typing NBTSTAT. Ok, there’s the crap again. Well, now time to try out what you have leanred from this document by testing it on the IP and/or host name of the remote system. Here’s the only thing you’ll need to know.
-a (adapter status) Lists the remote machine’s name table given its name
-A (Adapter status) Lists the remote machine’s name table given its IP address.
Remember this?
Time to use it.
-a will be the host name
-A will be the IP
How do i know this?
Read the Statements following the -a -A commands. It tells you there what each command takes.
So have you found which one you have to use?
Time to start.
Using it to your advantage
6. Type this if you have the host name only.
NBTSTAT -a (In here put in hostname without parenthesis)
Type this is you have the IP address only.
NBTSTAT -A (In here put in IP address without parenthesis)
Now, hit enter and wait. Now Either one of two things came up
1. Host not found
2. Something that looks like this:
NetBIOS Local Name Table
Name Type Status
GMVPS01 <00> UNIQUE Registered
WORKGROUP <00> GROUP Registered
GMVPS01 <03> UNIQUE Registered
GMVPS01 <20> UNIQUE Registered
If the computer responded “Host not found” Then either one of two things are the case:
1. You screwed up the host name.
2. The host is not hackable.
If number one is the case you’re in great luck. If two, This system isn’t hackable using the NBTSTAT command. So try another system.
If you got the table as above to come up, look at it carefully as i describe to you each part and its purpose.
Name – states the share name of that certain part of the computer
<00>, <03>, <20>, <1E> – Are the Hexidecimal codes giving you the services available on that share name.
Type – Is self-explanatory. It’s either turned on, or activated by you, or always on.
Status – Simply states that the share name is working and is activated.
Look above and look for the following line:
GMVPS01 <20> UNIQUE Registered
See it?
GOOD! Now this is important so listen up. The Hexidecimanl code of <20> means that file sharing is enabled on the share name that is on that line with the hex number. So that means GMVPS01 has file sharing enabled. So now you want to hack this. Here’s How to do it. (This is the hard part)
7. There is a file in all Windows systems called LMHOST.sam. We need to simply add the IP into the LMHOST file because LMHOST basically acts as a network, automatically logging you on to it. So go to Start, Find, FIles or Folders. Type in LMHOST and hit enter. when it comes up open it using a text program such as wordpad, but make sure you do not leave the checkmark to “always open files with this extension” on that. Simply go through the LMHOST file until you see the part:
# This file is compatible with Microsoft LAN Manager 2.x TCP/IP lmhosts
# files and offers the following extensions:
# #PRE
# #DOM:
# xnn (non-printing character support)
# Following any entry in the file with the characters “#PRE” will cause
# the entry to be preloaded into the name cache. By default, entries are
# not preloaded, but are parsed only after dynamic name resolution fails.
# Following an entry with the “#DOM:” tag will associate the
# entry with the domain specified by . This affects how the
# browser and logon services behave in TCP/IP environments. To preload
# the host name associated with #DOM entry, it is necessary to also add a
# #PRE to the line. The is always preloaded although it will not
# be shown when the name cache is viewed.
# Specifying “#INCLUDE ” will force the RFC NetBIOS (NBT)
# software to seek the specified and parse it as if it were
# local. is generally a UNC-based name, allowing a

# centralized lmhosts file to be maintained on a server.
# It is ALWAYS necessary to provide a mapping for the IP address of the
# server prior to the #INCLUDE. This mapping must use the #PRE directive.
# In addtion the share “public” in the example below must be in the
# LanManServer list of “NullSessionShares” in order for client machines to
# be able to read the lmhosts file successfully. This key is under
# \machine\system\currentcontrolset\services\lanmans erver\parameters\nullsessionshares
# in the registry. Simply add “public” to the list found there.
# The #BEGIN_ and #END_ALTERNATE keywords allow multiple #INCLUDE
# statements to be grouped together. Any single successful include
# will cause the group to succeed.
# Finally, non-printing characters can be embedded in mappings by
# first surrounding the NetBIOS name in quotations, then using the
# xnn notation to specify a hex value for a non-printing character.
Read this over and over until you understand the way you want your connection to be set. Here’s an example of how to add an IP the way I would do it:
Pre will preload the connection as soon as you log on to the net. DOM is the domain or IP address of the host you are connecting to. INCLUDE will automaticall set you to that file path. In this case as soon as I log on to the net I will get access to on the C:/ drive. The only problem with this is that by doin the NETSTAT command while you are connected, and get the IP of your machine. That’s why it only works on simple PC machines. Because people in these days are computer illiterate and have no idea of what these commands can do. They have no idea what NETSTAT is, so you can use that to your advantage. Most PC systems are kind of hard to hack using this method now because they are more secure and can tell when another system is trying to gain access. Also, besure that you (somehow) know whether they are running a firewall or not because it will block the connection to their computer. Most home systems aren’t running a firewall, and to make it better, they don’t know how operate the firewall, therefore, leaving the hole in the system. To help you out some, it would be a great idea to pick up on some programming languages to show you how the computer reads information and learn some things on TCP/IP (Transfer Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) If you want to find out whether they are running a firewall, simply hop on a Proxy and do a port scan on their IP. You will notice if they are running a firewall because most ports are closed. Either way, you still have a better chance of hacking a home system than hacking Microsoft.
Gaining Access
7. Once you have added this to you LMHOST file. You are basically done. All you need to do is go to:
Once you get there you simply type the IP address or the host name of the system. When it comes up, simply double click it, and boom! There’s a GUI for you so you don’t have to use DOS anymore. You can use DOS to do it, but it’s more simple and fun this way, so that’s the only way i put it. When you open the system you can edit, delete, rename, do anything to any file you wish. I would also delete the command file in C:/ because they may use it if they think someone is in their computer. Or simply delete the shortcut to it. Then here’s when the programming comes in handy. Instead of using the NBTSTAT method all the time, you can then program you own trojan on your OWN port number and upload it to the system. Then you will have easier access and you will also have a better GUI, with more features. DO NOT allow more than one connection to the system unless they are on a faster connection. If you are downloading something from their computer and they don’t know it and their connection is being slow, they may check their NETSTAT to see what is connected, which will show your IP and make them suspicious. Thats it. All there is to it. Now go out and scan a network or something and find a computer with port 21 or something open.


well this is some piece of info i got frm a hacking site and i thought it might interest the socail networking addicts. The owner of this post if a friend of my. back in the days when we were still in high school, we use to go to war driving and defacing websites of companys and government organization to impress this hot high cheer leaders. I posted this info for educational purpose only. what ever u do with this info be it legal of illegal am not to be blamed.

Uncovering Personal Information over the Internet

published by aramis4kill .^_^
Hello all. This is my first article ever written for anything anywhere,
and my first real attempt at teaching anything. So any feedback is much
appreciated. You can reach me (sometimes) by e-mail at You might even be lucky enough to catch me on
Google Talk. Do not e-mail me saying “it’s M-A-Y-B-E”, and please be sure
that you’ve checked for subtle humor before you complain, unless you’re
complaining about the subtle humor. I will answer any question, pertaining to
this article or not, provided it is intelligent, and I have the time. Good
luck on the latter.

Part 1 – Generic disclaimer

This information is meant for instructional purposes ONLY. This site and I
are not responsible in any way for anything you may be dumb enough to do with
any knowledge gained here, or elseware.

Part 2 – The introduction

With ‘social networking’ becoming more and more popular nowdays, it’s easy to
meet people online, and in many cases, people that you have never met face-to-
face, or ‘in real life’.

This opens quite the array of possibilities, and some questions.

What if this person isn’t who they say they are? Often times people will lie
about their identity to protect themselves from those ‘online predators’ you
hear so much about on those talk shows designed to scare mothers into locking
their children in a cage. Perhaps they are one of these people looking to do
bad things to you, the kind of bad things that are beyond the scope of this
article, and perhaps this whole site (I do have to wonder sometimes, though).

What if you want to know more about this person without revealing too much
about yourself? This is also a valid question. In many cases, there may be a
bit of information you want to know about someone, and even though you have
the best of intentions (right?), they may not want to share this information
with you.

This article is intended to help you in these situations. This topic is far
too complex for step-by-step instructions in most cases, in fact, it’s rare to
see any one method give you all the information you need, in most cases
personal information is put together by obtaining many small pieces of
seemingly useless data and putting them all together to reveal the whole, it
may even come to process of elimination.

In other words, this article is an introduction to uncovering information such
as age and location (personal information) about someone without directly
asking. Or, in a broader scope, this is an article on social engineering.

The person’s information you want will be called the ‘victim’ hereon. You
will be ‘you’. I will try to make as little assumptions as possible, but I
will assume you have the victim’s e-mail, and that the bulk of interaction is
taking place over some sort of instant messaging (Google Talk, MSN, Yahoo,
pretty much any chat room, that sort of thing). I will also assume you have a
good memory, as it’s almost essential, unless you want to waste countless
hours looking through notes and conversation logs.

Part 3 – What to do with e-mail

Obviously, you’ll want to somehow con them into sending you an e-mail. This
shouldn’t be hard, and there’s a good chance that it will happen without the
need for any fancy social-engineering. Maby not, though, but the lamest
excuses are known to work here. You may try asking them to send you a file
by e-mail so you can download it later, you might first send them an e-mail
and hope they will reply to it.

Anyhow, once you have a message they sent you, and not a message sent by some
automated service, the first thing you’ll want to do is check the ‘from’
header. Some people put their full name here, and their real one at that.
Naturally, this is useful information.

You’ll also want to flip through ALL the headers. For those that don’t know
there are many headers beyond to, from, and subject. In gmail you can view
these headers simply by clicking “show original”. There are ways to do this
on other mail services, and figuring that out is your problem. It should be
noted that many of these headers can be spoofed. The from field for example
is similar to the return address on a letter. There’s nothing preventing a
person from writing someone else’s address here

Back again, you may see a line like this


Received: from [] by via HTTP…

Those numbers in the brackets represent the victim’s IP address. This is
also useful information that will be explained later.

There is one more thing I’ll discuss here. As you may know, many social
networking services (Myspace, for example) allow you to search for users by
their e-mail. This can point you to information you don’t have, and provides
a good way to check if you have their real e-mail, if you happen to know their
page, profile, whatever on said site. You can, and should, even try to Google
the address. You may be surprised, but you should use your better judgement
with Google results. Say something you found with Google directly contradicts
something the victim told you. Were you lied to? Maby. Google could be
wrong, though. I can’t tell you the answer.

There are other things you can do with an e-mail address. Play around with it
and have fun.

Part 4 – IP addresses

Every computer has an IP address. Even ones that aren’t on the Internet.
Even ones that aren’t connected to ANY network (I’m talking about the loopback
address). I’m not going to get into internetworking here, but you need to
know that an IP is not always specific to any one computer. As if that wasn’t
enough, some computers are given IP addresses dynamically when they connect to
the Internet. This means that a computer’s IP can change from time to time.
To combat this, you should try to find out everything you can about an IP
while you can be sure the victim’s IP hasn’t changed (in most cases, if the
victim hasn’t ‘singed off’ or anything like that, the IP should be the same.
Should.), and try to get a new IP and check it every once in a while.

Getting the IP address can be done several ways, depending on the way you
converse with the victim. My personal favorite is setting up a webserver,
configuring it to log IPs, and asking the victim to ‘see if it works’ for you.
The are many other ways.

The only thing you can do with an IP is trace it, and try to map it
geographically. Neither of these are completely accurate, but can be helpful,
if you want more proof of the victim’s location. There are plenty of online
tools to do this for you, and they aren’t hard to find, so find them.

I lied earlier. There are other things you can do with an IP address, but
most of them are beyond this article, and I’ve never found them particularly
helpful in uncovering personal information.

Part 5 – Social networking

Most people make use of some social networking service nowdays. Facebook,
Twitter, Myspace . . . Many people even have more than one. Finding a ‘page’
that belongs to your victim is outright easy. Ask them, they’ll probably tell
you. There are other ways, like mentioned in the e-mail section if you don’t
want your victim to know you’ve seen their page.

These services are gold mines for people like you. Few stop to think about
unwanted viewers before posting to these things, much less what kind of
personal stuff might be in it. Even if they have it set to ‘private’ or
‘protected’ (the name varies), there may be useful info for you. Example:
Myspace allows users to set their profile to ‘private’, meaning only people
they have allowed can see their full information. However, even if they have
enabled this option, a non-allowed user still sees their age, location, and
gender as entered (yeah, smart people tend to lie here). Along with a
picture and a ‘username’ of sorts.

Alternatively, you can request that they allow you to see this page. This
usually requires you to have an account with the same service, but most people
will allow this regardless of how well they know you.

Besides that, you can use them to validate information. Think you’ve found
your victim’s real name? Search for them on Myspace. Does it turn up their
real Myspace page?

You can literally spend weeks digging in these mines, but it’s usually worth
it. At least in my experience.

Part 6 – Direct interaction

Finally. Some real social engineering. I can’t stress this enough – log your
conversations. There is no way you will remember everything, but the time
will come when you can faintly remember something said, and you’ll be able to
look it up in your logs. The most important thing is that you pay attention
and watch for things that go against eachother, and it’s nice if you can
confirm it before you confront the victim.

Anything that your victim says can potentially be useful, even if it doesn’t
seem so. For example:


12:00:00 Hey, dude, what time is it?
12:00:01 1:00

Now you know their timezone. Which helps narrow down their location.
Timezone may not seem all that important, after all, it’s a pretty general
area. But, think about it. Many people will lie about location on social
networks and even to your face, but most won’t think to lie in telling you the
time. Seriously, this works more than you’d expect.

How about this:


What’s up?
Gettin’ ready to go to a concert
Cool. What kind of concert?

How does this help you location-wise? With Metallica being the most over-
played band on radio today, I’m sure you can look on the Internet to find out
where they’re playing, which is another way to narrow down their location.
Most people will not travel too far for a concert, unless they’re following a
tour, in which case you’ll probably already know.

In other words, pay attention to what events the victim attends, maby the
event will be big enough for you to find out where it’s hosted.

You should also pay attention to the way they talk. Often times, you can give
a good guess at their heritage, location, and age from how they talk, and how
mature they seem to be. Someone who says “y’all” a lot is likely from the
south. Someone who uses “eh” all the time could live in the north. Someone
who uses a lot of question marks could be French. Someone who uses a lot of
exclamation may be Irish.

Gender is usually an obvious one to pick up on. Men and women tend to have
different personalities. I think it’s safe for me to assume that anyone that
may read this article knows the differences between men and women.

It may also help you to identify phrases, punctuation, quirks and the like that
the victim tends to use more often than not. These sort of things may help
you identify the victim in certain situations, and may help you spot
impostors. Over time (years), you will be able to recognize the victim
without putting any thought into it, but in the short run, you can look for
unique tendencies, like myself and the word ‘maby’.

Part 7 – Conclusion

This may seem like a lot of information to a complete newbie, but I’ve just
scratched the surface. Uncovering personal information is a broad topic, and
an art that takes years to learn and master. The best way to learn is to make
a few online friends and see what you can learn without them knowing. Or you
can try to surprise your current friends with your skills. Be patient,
listen, and you may surprise even yourself.

Again, please provide feedback either here, or to my e-mail.

well to all of u wanting to view the IP address of someone ur chatting with, here is what to do. If u have any problems just ask i will find a way 2 solve it for u.

“We scan the ports where most hacking activities or unauthorized access might take place. We also do regular network monitoring to look for any suspicious activity. We are not perfect at it, but we are like a credit card company looking for some suspicious activity on the network.”

IP catcher script : Steal Someone’s IP Address !

Here is next worth for my Visitors. Most of you may be curious to know how to find the IP address of your friend’s computer or to find the IP address of the person with whom you are chatting in Yahoo messenger or Gtalk. Finding out someone’s IP address is like finding their phone number, an IP address can be used to find the general location where that person lives. Now while most of the tutorials on the net teach you how to steal an ip address via MSN, or any other chat software, in this post I’ll show you how to find IP address of someones computer using script. Using this method for hacking someones ip adress is very easy and effectively, so just follow the steps bellow.

NOTE: This tutorial is for educational purposes only, I am NOT responsible in any way for how this information is used, use it at your own risk.

How to Hack Someones IP Address ?

Alright, I’m gonna give you this script. Register a Free hosting at and follow the steps.

get.php :

$file = “ips.txt”;
$f=fopen($file, ‘a’);

File not found

1.) First of all you need to make a new .txt document on the website you’re uploading this to. Name it ips.txt (You can change that in the script aswell where it says $file = ‘ips.txt’; in the second line. Then change the CHMOD to 777.

2.) Now you need to past the script above in to a get.php document, and upload it.

3.) Now you make people visit your site, and they will see only ” File Not Found ” !

4.) To view the IP, you simply add “/ips.txt” after your domain, and you’ll see the IP.
