Data Mining MySpace Bulletins

Use Netsparker


An interesting find made by John Hackenger surfaced today. For those of you familiar with MySpace, you’ll know that it uses ‘Bulletins’ to send a single message to multiple friends in your list.

Because the message is sent only to the people you have authorized to be on your list, sometimes you get a feel of safety that will make you post information that otherwise you would not want available on the Internet.

What if this information wasn’t private and could be available to everyone?

Because the messages are numeric and sequential at the URL, you can easily get information out of those bulletins.

John Hackenger explains his finding with a complete post of the information.

As you can see, he coded a little application in C to make the whole process simpler – needs some work with the syntax errors.

    Okay, for about 3 weeks now bulletins (that i did not post) have been appearing on my myspace page. They are adware or spyware, I can’t figure out how to get rid of these posts. I have deleted them but they will come back eventually. Any thoughts. Its very annoying and I think it has been infecting my friends pages.

    It’s been doing the same to me, I don’t know how to stop it. I can only expect it’s hackers who managed to duplicate attributes from the people.

    It’s not hacking it’s because you guys signed into seperated servers that now have your E-mail and your password. Why/how? because once u clicked on another person’s bulletin you were brought to a sign in page eventually. Change your password and you’ll be fine. This was an obivious solution once it happend to me. Myspace can’t be hacked. It can though be easy though to give out information such as your E-mail and password without knowing it. Just check your URL address once in a while to make sure your signing into a “Myspace” or some other server that will log you into myspace but will also steal your login info.

    scratch that 2nd though I was typing it quickly and without looking over what I was typing lol. Well hopefully this has helped a couple of people from pissing off there friends with bulletins full of ads.
