A short story behind how I got hall of fame in by finding my first broken link hijacking in just two minutes.

Hey everyone! I hope you all are doing well!

I am rohit soni and this is my first write-up hope you will enjoy :-)

First of all, What is broken link hijacking.!?

Broken Link Hijacking (BLH) exists whenever a target links to an expired domain or page. In simple terms, Broken Link Hijacking is process to find expired links and exploiting them.

Wondering how can I find broken/expired links?

Read this amazing blog written by Edoverflow:

Let’s hit the bull’s eye. I mean let’s come to the main topic.

While roaming on linkedin feed, I saw one guy posted a picture of hall of fame of website. At that time I was free and I read about broken link hijacking 2–3 days ago. So, I just casually visited the website and was trying to find broken links.

I saw their social media links in footer of the website. There were 5 social media links: Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Instagram and LinkedIn.

I opened all links in new tab. While going through all tabs I saw this.

Company linkedin page was not claimed.

After seeing this I quickly created a company page with the same name “teamsterapp” and boom..!!

Claimed the company linkedin page and taken over the broken link.

I found broken link hijacking vulnerability in just 2 minutes. Yeah.!😎

I quickly informed them about this and as appreciation they added my name in their credits page:

Got listed in credits page of for reporting broken link hijacking.

Read Edoverflow’s blog on broken link hijacking:

• How much bounty for broken link hijacking?
