A good friend once mentioned how cool it’d be to practice brute forcing for a website login. I created a simple web page with a login form. Incorrect logins display a red error message while successful logins show the rest of the web page. There’s no database or complex code behind the webpage. It simply hashes the user input and compares it to a stored value.
Before we continue, I must make it blatantly obvious that hacking any online service without consent could land you in a lot of trouble.
