Hide website SOURCE Code in View Source using One line Hack Code

Home / Blog / Hide website SOURCE Code in View Source using One line Hack Code

Let’s Start with What is it?

– It’s Javascript “windows History” Hack.

window.history.pushState()

Let’s take this with an example:

Example 1:

Actual Login URL: http://example.com/login” or “http://example.com/login.php” or “http://example.com/login.jsp” or “http://example.com/login.py” or “http://example.com/login.html

Add below javascript code at the footer of your page:

 

<script type="text/javascript">
window.history.pushState(null, null, "/user-login")
</script>

 

Now, whenever user will open “http://example.com/login“, User will see the login page, but your URL will dynamically get changed to: ‘http://example.com/user-login

Anyone doing,  “Ctrl+U” or “View-Source”, will immediately see either “non-existent page” or if you have set the “/user-login” page with your cool weird text, it will render that.

Try the above code in “Console” right away for this page and then do View-Source, You will see page content other (probably 404 error content) then this page .

Example 2:

Get the Current Path And Append to History State with extra text.

Actual URL: “http://example.com/blog/1/anything-here” or “http://example.com/category/hello-world” or “http://example.com/tag/hello” or “http://example.com/question/1000/what-if-it-rains-today

 

<script type="text/javascript">
// Get the current path.
path = location.pathname; // window.location.pathname;

// append with our juice
window.history.pushState(null, null, path+"/fool")

// or, as below
window.history.pushState(null, null, path+"-fool")
</script>

 

It will automatically change the current URL with above push state URL and When a user tries to view-source, it will give them “404 error” page message or “the message” you have rendered for non-existent pages or above fake pages.

Problem? Yes!

– If the user by mistake refreshes the page, they will see “error page” now and not the actual page. So, What can be done for that? Well, there is a hack for that too:

Override “f5” or “refresh event

 

function disableF5(e) {
    if ((e.which || e.keyCode) == 116 || ((e.ctrlKey || e.metaKey) && (e.which || e.keyCode) == 82) || (window.event.ctrlKey && e.keyCode == 82)) {
        fetchPage(originalURL);
        e.preventDefault();
    }
}

function fetchPage(originalURL) {
    jQuery.get( originalURL, function( data ) {
        jQuery( "body" ).html( data );
    });
}

 

Now, When a user tries to refresh the page, they will still see the original page content.

You can find more about “window.history.pushState” code at – https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/History_API#Adding_and_modifying_history_entries

 

This trick is stupid as the texts are still visible in “Inspect element” or if the user finds your above code and fix it.
