The Facebook PWN Tool: An Egyptian social engineering tool

A group of security researchers in Egypt have created a tool that will make social engineering easier. The facebook pwn tool automates the collection of hidden facebook profile data that only is accessible to a facebook friend.

One of the security researches claimed that the facebook pwn tool is made to educate users and facebook. He also said that the facebook pwn tool will be published to the wild.

 The cross-platform, Java-based tool is called "Facebook Pwn" and is described by those who developed it as a "Facebook profile dumper."

 

"(The tool) sends friend requests to a list of Facebook profiles, and polls for the acceptance notification. Once the victim accepts the invitation, it dumps all their information, photos and friend list to a local folder," the description notes.
