How to Hijack a Browser

Update: When you open it in notepad, it will try to save it as a text file. While it's asking you how to save it, click the drop down and select "All files *.*" and save it as filename "HOSTS". You can also save it as HOSTS on your desktop and drag it into the "etc" folder. Hope this clears up some of the confusion.

Household Prankster! Today we'll show you how to make any website your friend types in on his computer go to a completely different page. Turn Myspace into Facebook, Facebook into, whatever you like. For this demo we'll show you how to convert into a special message your friend must sit through every single time he wants to visit the site. Pretty sneaky!

Note: You can easily remove the website redirect by adding a # in front of each line of text that you add to the hosts file, or you can remove the added lines altogether.

Happy hacking!
