THIS HACK HAS BEEN FIXED BY BEARSHARE !!!
THAT’S WHAT I WANTED 🙂
THIS HACK NO LONGER WORKS.
Hi again !
So this is what you all are waiting for, cool !
DISCLAIMER : I AM NOT A HACKER, AND I AM POSTING THIS HACK BECAUSE I WANT BEARSHARE AUTHORITIES TO KNOW THIS IS POSSIBLE, AND THEY SHOULD FIX THIS BUG. AND I DID NOT HACK INTENTIONALLY. I WAS VIEWING MY BLOG’S STATISTICS, AND I CAME TO KNOW ABOUT THIS HACK.
How to Hack BearShare ?
URL STEALING. Yes, no Cookie Stealing (I am not hungry right now :D) .
Ever wonder why BearShare doesn’t have a address bar or URL indicator ?
Because if you have a URL you could hack that account.
How BearShare Community Webpages work ?
Where does this URL link to ?
To every page of BearShare Community. Like viewing a profile, viewing messages, doing anything inside BearShare.
How does this URL look like ?
How do I get the link ?
Nice question, by REFERRAL METHOD ! You need to steal the URL, by REFERRAL METHOD.
If you are not familiar with Referral, it a URL, from where the user comes from. Like If I am at http://www.yahoo.com, and at that page I saw a link to my page (for suppose), now if I view my page’s statistics, I will see http://www.yahoo.com as a Referral URL to my page. But you don’t need yahoo URL, you need BearShare’s URL.
So place your page link in your BearShare account, and if someone clicks on to your page from BearShare you can get BearShare link 😉
STEP BY STEP ( YOU MUST HAVE LITTLE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT HTML)
1, First create a blog or site of your own on any free blog provider or any website provider like geocities or something.
4, Now it’s tme to edit your BearShare account, open BearShare and login to your account. Click on My Layout Edit

Replace “http://www.my-webpage.com” with your webpage or blog link. And click Save Changes.
5, Ask someone to visit your website or blog.
6, Login to StatCounter.com and view your site’s statistics. On the left side, you will see a link “Recent Came From”, look for a link starting like
If you find one, yupee ! You got it !
7, Copy this link and paste it into your Internet Explorer (No it doesn’t work in Firefox, I tried :D) and press Enter. You are in his/her acocunt.
8, And now give me a comment 😀 lol
