    Man-in-middle Attack

    Hi,

    I have an assignment to complete and it is implementing the Man-in-middle attack.

    I have a Linksys access-point and two machines with orinoco card.
    one of them is Associated to the AP. Is it possible to implement the attack using ettercap ?
    the wireless card that I am using the orinoco 802.11b.


    This is purely an academic assignment.

    I understand that if you run ettercap with ARP cache poisoning or packet forging, I believe that would be your man in the middle attack.

    Yes, you can use ettercap for a man in the middle attack.

    Search google for "man in the middle attack" and "ettercap man in the middle attack".

    Also, RTFM on ettercap and the other programs you might use (hunt , Achilles )

    Have phun and do some searches on it. There is MUCH out there already.

    Really? An assignment to complete a man-in-the-middle attack? Where in blue blazes do you go to school?

    Actually, these kinds of assignments are getting really common. My friends at purdue are always talking about these classes that teach all kinds of malicious stuff. Even at my school, upper classmen are doing all kinds of that crap. At least for net security.

    arp poisoning is dangerous?

    and you say this... why? i know i wouldn't want to be responsible for the death of an innocent arp but if its a planned test im sure it's not going to disrupt or compromise a working network.

    Your address is spoofed to the targets in a man in the middle attack, so its not extremely dangerous. But be careful when you run ettercap, i have found that a couple of times Ive used it, it killed the remote connections when I was shutting down the que.

    Another good tool to use is, Dsniff (http://monkey.org/~dugsong/dsniff/), sniffs traffic and strictly grabs passwords. Ettercap does this also but I think dsniff works much better.
    The command completed successfully.

    Hi,

    First it's an assignment. Second the lab that I wok in is isolated from the university's network. So it's not affecting others at any point of time.

    Lets see next year A+ software and hardware are done and what do I get in return. Hacking and Basic Programming.

    Looks like its pretty common.
