Myspace lets anyone view private profiles

On August 18 2006 a post was made at our website explaining how easy it was to access (private) comments and photos on Myspace profiles set to "private". This vulnerability in Myspace profiles had apparently been known by the "Myspace underground" for some time, but had not been addressed by the Myspace security people. On August 26, this vulnerability was made public on and suddenly the whole world knew about it. Once in the spotlight, Myspace band-aided this "view private profile" hole in less than 24 hours.

Note: The information contained on this page is for educational purposes only. It is hoped that by making such breaches in Myspace privacy/security public, Myspace administrators/programmers can correct the issue and prevent further lapses in security in the future. has been notified of this security vulnerability.

Oh, the pervs will love this.. the only people that will love this more is the lawyers :-)

It seems that even if a profile has been deleted, MySpace still retain all private images associated with the account. Hence if you look up a userid of a deleted user, it is simply identified as "Friend", and if you follow that link you will get the message that the account has been deleted.

Is it just comments you can view?

yah, this has been out for a few months. i tried it before but i could not get it to work.. hehe.. but now it does work :-)

my guess is that myspace will have this fixed soon.. like.. in another 6 months or so.

I doubt anything was actually fixed. You can still view pictures if you happen to know the exact URL. Can't do a safe mode edit on your own comments either. The code is just absent from the .cfm files now. If anyone has cached copies of and, I bet they will still work.

i really want to find out what the new vulnerability code is :|

anything duping myspace is A-OK with me :D

Honestly i can understand why concerned parents would benifit by getting into private profiles and maybe some:still in love or i can't believe he/she left me person, but we as adults must realize that YES their are alot of pedophilles out here luring in young boy's and girl's through this my space craze. The biggest security breach is one of the oldest tricks in the book, the good ol TROJAN HORSE. You see yes the stark reality is that there are holes in my space, if i may say for myself and everytime TOM & CO. fixes one it's like ten more pop up which makes the followers of this site including myself well.... good followers. Myspace is a good networking outlet/damn you got a page too/the last time i saw you was in kindergarden, medium, but we as "responsibly" (the funny thing is that as i was writing responsible i chuckled in my mind thinking to myself now who you fooling with this B.S!@#, this dude is up hear preaching to the choir, he on the wrong page wit this s!#@, and their is alway's that one geek that is going to protest to the head honcho of this site to just delete this clowns account, let me get back...) yes responsible adults must just get a lil more involved into who our kids, family and friends are contacting out their. I even got caught up on this profile view code for a while until it dawned on me that i made my own daughter set her profile to private... damn.

Has anyone found or came up with a new hack code to view private profiles on myspace. I think my husband may be cheating. I want to view the suspected 'other womans' profile. I was told she has pictures of him and her posted.

If there is a new hack for this? I'm only concerned about my family, not trying to snoop into everyone else. Thank you.

If there is a new code can someone please send it to me. I need to check on someone who has been bugging my little sister. Thanks!
