Hacking Yahoo Messenger To Find IP Addresses!

By -

yahoo messenger hackingHacking Yahoo Messenger is all about using some tricks to track and find out anyone’s IP address. We all chat with our friends or relatives using Yahoo messenger. This is very familiar with us. To respect everyone’s privacy, Yahoo messenger does not show us the IP address of those people we are talking with. But this is possible to apply some simple tricks to bypass yahoo’s security settings and hack anyone’s IP addresses. Lets discuss how.

Whenever we chat with someone, the whole process is controlled by Yahoo server. There is no way to hack Yahoo server, this is almost impossible. As we don’t communicate with the person directly using our own system or network, this is impossible to hack this encrypted IP source. So, we have to set up a direct connection with the person in order to track his IP address using Yahoo messenger. Simply send the person a big file (Not less than 3 MB) via Yahoo Messenger File Transfer. Once he accepts the file, his computer makes a direct connection with your computer for the file sharing process. And here we go.

Once both the IPs (Your’s & the Victim’s) get engaged in the file sharing process, it will take you a maximum of 2 minutes to track his IP address. Now it’s time to hack his IP address by following below steps. Remember, do not start file sharing from the beginning. Read the instructions carefully.

  1. Go to Start –> Run (This will open your windows command prompt)
  2. Type CMD and hit Enter
  3. You will get a list of IP addresses like the below screen shot.
  4. hack yahoo messenger

  5. You can notice two columns as Local Address and  Foreign Address there. Local address is your address while foreign address is the IP of the recipient with whom you are sharing the file.
  6. Send him the 3 MB file (You can send him a small clip, zipped images etc)
  7. Now type netstat -n in the command prompt
  8. You will get a output. Suppose the following is the output.

  10. In the above one is the IP address of that person and 1646 is the port no where the file transfer is taking place. You are done here.

Once you get a person’s IP address and port no, you can use any remote hacking tool to do anything. Also remember that, few times Yahoo transfers the file using it’s own server. In that case this trick won’t show effects. But hacking is illegal and I strongly encourage all my readers NOT to do this. Treat this post for educational purposes only.

  1. Nope, they don't. If you are asking me the same thing indirectly, lol, then let me tell you that this is not a hacking site. This is a information site and I also requested you guys to treat this post for information purposes only. And also, there is no hacking tool involved in this trick. It's just we use our own mind and PC to get certain things.

    if your having any trouble finding said ip address remember this command used in the command prompt netstat -n is a way to see all open connections with with computer which in-advertantly gets u the address of your victim, but most of you dont know what to do with said information. what im about to tell u is for imformation purposes only this is what u do after u get the ip address say u found a ip address that u got for a messenger for example this is a real ip address of probords,com ok heres what u do trace said ip address to see if there is any firewal between the too u can do this by typing in tracert it will take a maximum of 30 hops ( hops are the amount of jumps ur internet takes through different severs to reach the location ) if it doesnt keep timing out and it says trace complete then ur pretty much golden ok now for a telenet command which is taking contole of the computer over the interent in the command prompt type the word telnet then it will take u to a screen similar to command prompt but dont be fooled its only a similar interface type 0 hit enter and then type in the ip address u want to controle like this 25 the extra 25 at the end is spaced and it is the port u are opening to gain controle note if u do not type 25 in it will use the defualt 23 port for internet connection your on ur own from here. remember information only

  15. Hello Bapun,

    It sounds like you really know what you are talking about (having read your answers to posts oine).

    I have a serious issue that I wondered if you might be able to assist with..

    Just a few days ago my Facebook account was bring hacked, several attempts made from 2 different computers (from a state I used to live in and my future ex had friends). FB provided me with the IP addresses of the computers and the locations (just county). I strongly suspect someone (a Mac user) which was mentioned in FB’s notification.

    FB locked my account because of multiple attempts from a non known computer or device. Thank goodness they do this!

    I’m freaking the heck out!!! I need to find out who is would want to drive my FB account. Or hack it. Husband doesn’t have the knowledge to do this, but his friends probably do.

    If you can give me any advice, at all, I would appreciate it.

    My email is: redgreen13 at yahoo.com

    Thank you!!!

  16. I installed yahoo multi messenger. I signed in with 2 different messengers and started file tranfering. after that I executed the command netstat -n in cmd. it was very confusing. local address was giving and my local(lan) ip address of system whereas foriegn addresses was giving alot of different ip addresses with port numbers 5050, 80, 8080. I checked my ip from whatismyip.com. My ip was not in the list of different ip foriegn addresses. Isn’t it that my external ip (wan ip) should have been in the list of foriegn addresses because I was using yahoo multi messenger and was transfering the file to another email address of mine which was also signed in. now if I transfers a file to any other person, will I face the same situation? What wxactly is someone’s ip address with whom we are communicating in a long list of foriegn addresses?
