MITM 8: Countermeasures

March 4, 2012


There are two main kinds of countermeasures  for the ARP poisoning and the man-in-the-middle attack in general. The first is the prevention and the second is detection. Prevention try to avoid an attacker while detection trigger an alarm when it notices that looks like an attack or the result of an attack. To ensure a […]

MITM 7: Sniffing with TCPDump

February 25, 2012


I’ve been thinking about whether develop a new application — and reinvent the wheel like for ARP poisoning with libnet and libpcap — or using tools already available. I finally decided to use TCPDump because this tool might be really handy in many situations. I think I will improve ARP Spoof SI anyway with a […]

MITM 6: ARP spoofing (exploit – 2)

February 21, 2012


Today we are gonna reinvent the wheel, and the worst part is that we won’t even improve it. Why? Because I want to develop an ARP spoofer in C from the scratch based on what we’ve learnt so far in this tutorial. For this program, I used the multi-platform libraries libnet (for forging packets) and […]

MITM 5: Forwarding packets

January 31, 2012


As mentioned in the previous post, after spoofing the ARP table of both victim and default gateway, you may block the internet connection of the victim because packets are sent to the attacker which doesn’t forward them to the default gateway: the attacker open the packet (data link layer) and read the destination IP address […]

MITM 4: ARP spoofing (exploit)

January 31, 2012


Now I described how ARP works, let’s exploit the weakness: deceiving the victim and the default gateway by pretending to be both of them. There are many tools for the ARP spoofing such as Cain & Abel, Ettercap and DSniff (I will soon write a tutorial about Ettercap and Cain & Abel). In order to […]

Ettercap – All roads lead to CLI

January 24, 2012


For the tutorial about the MTM attack, I started an article in the Sec IT’s wiki about Ettercap. Ettercap is a free and open-source tool for man in the middle (MITM) attack on LAN. It features sniffing of live connections, content filtering on the fly and many other interesting tricks. It supports active and passive […]

MITM 3: ARP spoofing

January 20, 2012


The first step in a Man In The Middle attack is to modify the ARP table of the victim’s computer and the default gateway router in this way: ARP table (victim) ARP table (router) IP MAC address IP MAC address (router IP) Attacker MAC address (victim IP) Attacker MAC address Before spoofing, you […]
