@Mr Programmer Not possible? Or won't work on any real website? 😜 Take for example this website: http://www.elephant.se/search.php?open=Home%20-%20Start Type ' in any text box and hit enter. It would be vulnerable.

Download viruses? You mean make them? Orrr. You can edit code from any website just by using either firebug or right clicking and clicking inspect element. That won't change anything on the actual website, just your page. Can be fun to mess around with it though, show your friends the horrible things the school website says! xD. Anywho, people can hack things in various ways, doing various things. This is a pretty broad question, so I respond with a pretty broad answer. If a website has a vulnerability it can be exploited. For example, let's say your website connects to some database server by taking the input in a text box as the "username", which will check if the user has already been signed up. Lets say the website uses this input within an SQL statement directly. Then the hacker could, instead of inputting a username, input an SQL command that would run against the database. This is called 'SQL injection'. sooo yea. there's ways of doing stufffff with thingsss.

I think phishing is easiest way if you want to hack a password. Sometimes fake google doc pages also work.
