In this post, I'm describing how I was able to take over 4 tabs on Facebook's own Pages. 1. Facebook India Ambassadors I was browsing Facebook as usual and not in a mood to test anything. I then visited Facebook India's page to check is there any update from Facebook India and that's when I noticed a page tab Facebook India Ambassadors . I clicked on it to see Facebook India's Brand Ambassadors and the tab showed a heroku error page. I was surprised to see that there. It looked interesting to me so I decided to dig further. I found out that it loads a third party website in an iframe in main section. The url was http://immense-atoll-4159.herokuapp.com/ and I visited the url directly to verify that the subdomain doesn't exist. Heroku shows a does not exist error page if the subdomain doesn't exist. So I logged into my Heroku account and created a new project and give immense-atoll-4159 as project id.

Facebook Provide you the ability to create test accounts for white hat testing. You can create it by visiting the url facebook.com/whitehat/accounts . Facebook wants you to test for security issues using test accounts only and if you're unable to reproduce an issue with a test account, then it is okay to use a real account you own or you have to get permission from the account owner.

Facebook recently introduced a feature called Profile Picture Guard. It protect others from downloading your profile picture. If you want to know more about it, you can read it here Profile Picture Guard | Facebook Help . When turning on Profile Picture Guard, Facebook assure you that no one else can download your profile picture. Really??? 😆😆😆 Never!!!
