There are many ways to defeat java-script protected web

sites. S ome are very simplistic, such as hitting ctl-alt-del

when the password box is displayed, to simply turning off

java capability, which will dump you into t he default page.

You can try manually searching for other directories, by

typing the directory name into the url address box of your

browser, ie: you w ant access to . Try typing .(almost ever y web site has an images

directory) This will put you into the images directo ry,

and give you a text list of all the images located there.

Often, the t itle of an image will give you a clue to the

name of another directory. ie: in,

there is a .gif named gamestitle.gif . There is a g ood

chance then, that there is a 'games' directory on the site,

so you wou ld then type in, and if it is

a valid directory, you aga in get a text listing of all thefiles available there.

For a more automated a pproach, use a program like WEB SNAKE

from anawave, or Web Wacker. These pro grams will create a

mirror image of an entire web site, showing all director ies,

or even mirror a complete server. They are indispensable for

locating hidden files and directories.

What do you do if you can't get past an openin g "Password

Required" box? First do an WHOIS Lookup for the site. In our

example, . We find it's hosted by

at 100.100.100. 1. We then go to, and then launch \

Web Snake, and mirror the e ntire server. Set Web Snake to NOT

download anything over about 20K. (not ma ny HTML pages are

bigger than this) This speeds things up some, and keeps yo u

from getting a lot of files and images you don't care about.

This can take a long time, so consider running it right before bed time.

Once you have an image of the entire server, you look through

the directories listed, and find /target. When we open that

directory, we find its contents, and all of i ts sub-directories listed.

Let's say we find /target/games/zip/zipindex.html . This would be the index

page that would be displayed had you gone through the

password procedure, and allowed it to redirect you here.

By simply typ ing in the url you will be on

the index page and ready to follow the links for downloading.

enjoy hacking
