What is QRL Jacking?

QRL Jacking or Quick response code login jacking is a simple social engineering attack vector capable of session hijacking affecting all application that rely on the “Login with QR code” feature as a secure way to login into accounts. In a nutshell, the victim scans the attacker’s QR code which results nutshell, the victim scans the attacker’s QR code which results in session hijacking.

By cloning the hackers QR code through QRL jacking, you can access Victim by accessing it on your system, and once WhatsAppSpace is open, then WhatsApp’s messages can be viewed. Anyone can be given a message, the current GPS location can be seen. Apart from this, more sensitious information can be seen.


How does this process work?

In the Normal Condition when you scan the whatsapp web’s QR code in your mobile, then Mobile App Secret Authentication Token generates and sends the website. The website verifies it. And you also get the Whatsapp session open.

Attacher verifies it by doing it. Victim whatsapp access  on their system.
