Gatecrashing the Google+ Launch Party

Google+ the new buzz in town !! I see every one on Facebook , commenting about Google+. What is Google+ ? Well it is a social networking project by Google. It has alot of very nice features. Though its not mature enough but still the limited release is very nice. As it is a limited version so even if you Invite some one , they would go up on the page and it would not let you get in . A message saying that the limit has been exceeded.

Today Mr. Usman Ahmed and Mr. Ali Raza Khuwaja  , friends of mine  who are  Penetration Testers working with me , found a work around for inviting people for sure. The fun thing is that it has a 100% success rate uptil now.

The bug found , basically takes advantage of the Circles feature. If you directly send the invite , their would be a problem but if you goto your Home page and in your update section Write any update and just beneath it is an option for adding a Circle (group) to whom the update would be visible to. Write the email address of the Gmail person  as a Circle and post it.

After a while your friend would receive a mail saying:

<< Update on Google+ >>
[Hyper link to Google+] ==>  View or comment on <<Your Name>> post »
The Google+ project is currently working out all the kinks with a small group of testers. If you’re not able to access Google+, please check again soon.

Just click on the hyperlink and your in.

Peace !!!
