MyBlogLog Trick – How To Surf The Web As ShoeMoney

by Jeremy Schoemaker on February 21, 2007 · 66 comments

In this weeks MyBlogLog hack of the week we show you how to surf the web as other MyBlogLog members.

This one is really pretty simple. If you are using Firefox just open up your cookies.txt file and look for the line that says:

.mybloglog.com TRUE / FALSE 120364175 mbl_sid 2006122713042995

Now if you have never used mybloglog just paste in the above line and restart Firefox to surf the web as me.

If you want to be someone else just change that last number to whoever you want to be. Here are a few noteable people that it could be fun to surf the web as….

Scott Rafer – 20070220175514
Jason Calacanis – 20070220172928
Jeremy Zawodny – 20070220173258
Gray Wolf – 2006121823222200
Neil Patel – 2006112001595691
Chris Hooley – 2006122217174655
Tech Crunch – 2005092013300934
Andy Beal – 2006120114424866
Loren Baker – 2006120114424866
Danny Sullivan – 2006112409071004
Kid Disco – 2006122401534873
Barry Schwartz – 2007011808190075

Again… you actually don’t even need a mybloglog account just put that line in your cookies.txt file.

Fun stuff!

Ever wonder how the spammers are getting so many links in your “hot communities” that you are never a member of? We will cover that next week!

Hilarious!
Quick, somebody setup a site with a cross reference to everyone!
I wanna be Matt Cutts, no Darren Rowse, no, Greg! Ya Greg B.

2 Icheb

Holy crap that’s so awesome. :D

3 Andy Beal

Hacking MBL is a sport for Jeremy. ;-)

4 John

Ouch. Just, ouch.

5 Andy Beal

Well I see you added my name to the list. If my wife finds my profile on a porn blog, you can do the explaining! ;-)

6 Dan

These guys are really having a bad week :)

7 Jeremy Steele

You’re scary sometimes, you know that, right?

8 Eric Marcoullier

Hey, can y’all verify for me that this has been patched? Thanks!

9 blue

I am still surfing as shoemoney here!

10 Eric Marcoullier

Hey Blue — can you tell me which site you’re on that shows you as Shoe? It’s possible that one of our scripts didn’t get upgraded and it would be great to know where you’re seeing this.

Hilarious…the MBL guys needs some makeover now.

13 Todd Sampson

Man, you scraped the whole site?!? You should have just waited a few weeks for the API.

-T

14 joe whyte

LOL this should be fun to play with ;-) I hope mybloglog is watching your blog jeremy so they can fix this issue.

15 King Chris

M*tha F*ckin Genius! You the man Shoe! I want to be your Padawan Learner so I can be come the next Shoemoney Jedi Pimp!

16 Bradford Knowlton

Now you can build your own site, with a ton of ringtone ads. Same content, same images, but more ads, and more money.

This is slowly becoming the end of MBL as we once knew it back in 06.

17 Kumiko Suzuki

That’s a real shame – they really didn’t benefit from banning you. If anything, they’ve drawn more attention to their faults without eliminating the true problem – their site.

There’s probably a lesson here though. Whenever you’re going to “stick it to the man”, put it on a fake myspace site and just link to that!

Have a great day!

Kumiko (although my mybloglog avatar may be John Chow)

18 Bashar

That’s really scary. How did this system go live that way?
Anyways, I think they fixed it. Right now if I try this, once I go to MyBlogLog the sid is changed again.

LOL!

20 gregoftheweb

I wish I had never signed up to MBL now….

21 derrich

Scary stuff. Hey, Shoe…will you visit my blog 10 times please? I need some help.

22 Stuart

The exploit could hurt others reputations maybe, but otherwise you’re just freely advertising for them.

23 wildbluff_matt

Ouch. These guys need to get it together.

24 Nathan Hannig

They need some real help over there, horrible programming.

25 Aaron Bassett

and why would your wife be on a porn blog to see it?

26 John Beckley

Hi Shoe, I was just getting into all this Social Networking…Digital Signature stuff and then read your post :( Not sure what to do now as MBL has come rrecommended from a number of top blogs!

27 Gert Jan

old post but nevertheless interesting!

28 Edwin Waelbers

Isn’t that illegal, impersonating someone?

29 divemaster

I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

30 Rich Rick

Hey blog is mentioned on a squidoo lens which is not at all related to the content here :S, also just for ur info your rss is not working. Peace, Rick
