Omar Butti is one of the most charismatic TV presenters in Dubai. He is also an artist, a filmmaker and a writer. Curiosity led him into allowing a hacker to break into his Facebook account Live during the shows he presents and we know exactly what was the program the hacker used.
In order to hack a Facebook or even to hack an Instagram password, hackers can easily use Istealer 6.3, a program designed to create servers. Hackers can easily install this program by taking the steps you can find in our How hackers hack any Facebook & Instagram account with Istealer 6.3 tutorial from the coolest website related to Social Media and hacking tools: Fbpassworder.com. Basically, Omar had two guests in his show: Nicolai Solling, the one sending Omar a fake link with a virus included and the other guest was the actual hacker.
How did the hacking occur?
One of the guests became friends with Omar Butti on Facebook right before the show. While being Live, he sent Omar a link on Facebook through Messenger: a Facebook Fan Page link. Then Omar just clicked on it: this is the moment when the virus entered Omar’s Facebook account and allowed a ‘hook’ to be installed on his computer. It means that the virus managed to help the hacker steal Omar’s Facebook credentials and gain full control of his browser. It doesn’t even matter the topic of Fan Page used for this experiment: the thing is that the TV presenter did open it and Liked it. This was the key moment in the hacking process.
The hacker Omar invited brought his own tablet in the show. By using this one, he had access to the Hacker Command and Control. Once Omar clicked on the link he got, the hacker received a notification saying ‘linked with a victim’. Once the hacker clicked on ‘Send command’ from his tablet, Omar Butti was automatically logged out of his Facebook account.
When this happens, you naturally want to go back into your account. That is exactly what Omar did and what happened afterward? The hacker got an SMS with Omar’s Facebook credentials: username and password.
Boom! That easy! This is what you can through as well, if a hackers tried to steal your credentials.

Omar Butti’s guests provided the audience with a few examples on how you can become friends with a hacker.
