This post will show you a “proof-of-concept” on how to hack polldaddy polls for unlimited and automated votes
- Polldaddy Poll URL (ex. http://polldaddy.com/poll/7300120)
- Poll answer you want to use (ex. PDI_answer33136443)
- Java installed in your system
- This PolldaddyHack Java program
To obtain the Poll URL you must have a browser that has a DOM inspector OR that allows you to install firefug extension on it.
Assuming you have “FIREFOX” install firebug from this website
Once that is installed go to where the poll is (ex. bottom of this post).
Right-Click the poll and select “Inspect Element with Firebug”
Ctrl-F to find the URL in the noscript tag, search for “http://polldaddy.com/poll/”
Now point your browser to the URL you’ve just obtained
To get the Answer ID, Right-Click on the desired answer(radio-button) and again select “Inspect Element with Firebug” It should take you to the DOM representation of this element. Copy the answer id attribute that starts with “PDI_”
Ok great we now have everything.
Poll URL: http://polldaddy.com/poll/7300120/
Poll answer: PDI_answer33136442
Our last step is to use these values to submit votes to the poll.
Make sure you have downloaded the program from the above requirements (zip file containing one jar file).
Extract this jar file and put it in any folder. Depending on your OS this next step will vary:
Open Command Prompt (CMD+RUN type cmd+ENTER). Navigate to where the jar file is located. OR Shift-Right-Click where the jar is and select “Open command window Here”.
You probably know how to get to the jar file 🙂
Not helping you
Ok, now to run this jar file use the following command.
java -jar PolldaddyHack.jar arg0,arg1,arg2[,arg3]
- arg0: is for Polldaddy Poll URL,
- arg1: Poll answer id,
- arg2: Amount of votes you will like to submit,
- arg3(optional): In case poll has been setup for IP BLOCK you can add a proxy-list for multiple IP vote submission.
WITHOUT proxy list:
java -jar PolldaddyHack.jar "http://polldaddy.com/poll/7300120/" "PDI_answer33136442" "5"
WITH proxy list:
java -jar PolldaddyHack.jar "http://polldaddy.com/poll/7300120/" "PDI_answer33136442" "proxies.txt" "5"
Proxy list requirements:
Each proxy IP must be in one line and contain connection port union by colon. ex.
Dependencies have been already packaged into JAR file, for limiting purposes the program puts a 10 second delay between votes to prevent polldaddy from blocking you.
