    Hey everyone,

    I read a thread the other day and someone mentioned that they bruteforced a verification for someones site on WMT without owning the domain and its been playing on my mind every since.

    Is this even possible without having access to the site?

    False information. There is no bruteforcing, there is only a single hash per website, it's generated from the domain name, so no matter how many times you do it, it'll generate the same hash.

    Bruteforcing refers to repeated guessing of login credentials. I suspect what they were referring to was bruteforcing WP installations which hackers have been doing for a long time. Once they gain access they can add meta.

    Another possibility is file injection through cross-scripting techniques on vulnerable installations. Of course there are the old FTP brute force attempts also that if successful will allow editing or uploading files.

    Without knowing what you read it's impossible to know the technique but there are many hackers use.

    Thanks for the replies guys i get it now, guess he was talking about bruteforcing WP or the FTP side of things.

    Just thought it was a bit strange.

    Case closed thanks :)
