This is why you don't leave that option on.. on your phone. You only connect at home and ignore all other wireless networks and do not search no matter what for external public wifi networks.

Once I launched a MITM attack at my local library and by a MAC adress I traced a phone that was looking at mature mom pornography. I look around the place and the only person with that brand was a little 8 year old boy sitting in the corner. Never went back again!

If your website sends passwords in plain text, you need to be banned from web design.

ATTWireless, COMCAST, ATTXXX(XXX being some three digit numbers), and any other common AP name, would be better than a business name, if those places are not near. If you are in a public area, then just pick a place and name the wifi after it. Maybe add GUEST in the name. INN_GUEST, QUICKSTOP_GUEST. This is what you would name your own wifi_pineapple ssid. No one really needs a wifi pineapple to do this, you can get a usb wifi antenna that is capable of promiscuous mode and an everyday use Linux build, pen-testing Linux distro or a couple of windows tools, Linux is better, and do the same thing. Remember, your wifi pineapple has to have a stronger signal than the other signals in the area before people's devices will connect automatically! The tool/script she is using to gather images from users, I have gotten images from people surfing Facebook, the fun part, you can change the images, so if they want to see an image, you can inject your own image! RICKROLL!!!

Eric Month ago
No program. If you want to protect yourself from this type of an attack, use a VPN, do not allow your devices to connect automatically to open wifi.

The thing with VPN's is that you are merely shifting your traffic into another location. The VPN owner could still be tapping into all of your unencrypted HTTP- and DNS-requests. *Here's a few useful tricks to keep you reasonably safe on the internet* - Don't connect to open or public wifi unless you really have to. If an attacker gains physical access to the (legit) wifi access point that is hosting your signal, then they can read all of your unencrypted internet traffic. - Use Two-factor authentication and a password manager with a strong master password. It does not have to be cryptic, something like "MyFavouriteMovieIsSomethingAndMyCatIsOld" works just as good. Just make sure it's something that can't be "social engineered", i.e., extracted from your social media / internet presence through guesswork and investigation. - Use a DNS-provider that supports DoH (DNS over HTTPS), e.g. Quad9 ( or Cloudflare ( This is important because whoever hosts your internet can still see your request metadata (what & when) if you are not careful about this. - Ask or force your web browser to always request everything via HTTPS. The websites that don't support HTTPS should be avoided like the plague. - Use a privacy-focused web browser if you are genuinely concerned about your privacy. Websites can still identify you using a technique called "browser fingerprinting". This means that any website that really wants to identify you can do that if you are using a "generous" web browser like Google Chrome, even if you are using "incognito mode", a VPN and HTTPS. Use amiunique.org/ to see if your browser fingerprint is identifiable. - Use a VPN that respects your privacy and does not sell your traffic logs. Try to look for a VPN that has had its codebase vetted by a reputable cybersecurity company. Remember, they can also access your unencrypted internet traffic.

It should be known that the vast majority of websites nowadays utilize HTTPS which added a layer of RSA encryption onto the standard HTTP protocol. RSA is an encryption scheme explicitly designed to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks from seeing the data you send and receive. It can still see the basic HTTP request to the website, but it won't be able to see any of the content, neither web pages or login credentials.

This is quite an ineffective way, just run Kali Linux n run a lil wireshark sniffer between your router, n even encrypted sites aren't that safe

You guys should make a video about images meta data. Using images meta data you can determine exactly where someone took there last selfy via the GPS saved into the image file when it was taken and also the direction it was taken in, as well as the time and date of course. Theres methods to remove them and I think all this information about this security hole is useful for everyone to know. Also there's a great story about the US military and uploading images of there new war planes going wrong because of image meta data.

The following phrase is for Jason. All stress is self-induced, it's in your mind, you don't need it, lay it down. Panic is contagious, but so is calm, stay calm, do your work. Slow is smooth, smooth is smart, smart is straight, straight is deadly.

So for those not educated in IT. If you use a free WiFi make sure you use a trusted VPN. I'm sure it's been commented but just putting it out there again. Also you pretty much should never use an open WiFi if you can help it. Use your phone or get a hotspot for remote work especially.

You guys should make a ultimate modern rogue course, where you put all your modern rogue knowledge to the test. Like you have to find dead drops, take down people with martial arts and nunchucks, get ride of the meat of the thing they stacked in rye, parkour, set and find bugs, find and place hidden cameras, try to solve a crime, all the things that you have ever covered in modern rogue just in a course

9:11 "Oh! Those are certificates from the site you're in" some time later "Oh! That site was secure! Who could've known?"
JW Month ago
+HALAVLUV thanks :)
JW Month ago
+HALAVLUV I appreciate the response, but I'm actually a software dev with a focus on security, so I'm well versed in assymetric encryption :) I was just wondering why the requests weren't visible at all, although, as we've discussed, it must just the pineapple/module config
HALAVLUV Month ago
Guess it's a configuration of the device. Even if it was visible there would be no realistic way for it to decrypt the messages, so you wouldn't be able to see anything except for the IP address and maybe the domain of the site. If you find this interesting you should read about asymmetrical encryptions (Don't let the name scare you, it's actually interesting)
JW Month ago
+HALAVLUV sorry, to clarify, I understand that. But I'm just confused as to why the encrypted requests themselves weren't visible. Or is encrypted content not displayed when using dwall (sort of makes sense)?
HALAVLUV Month ago
+JW That's because when you have a VPN on and you're visiting a website, you're not the one that connects to it. Your VPN connects to the site for you, and then sends you the web page it found. The conversation between you and the VPN is encrypted, so if the pineapple would catch encrypted traffic, you'd see that Brian's phone is only talking to TunnelBear's servers.
