Thanks for the info! Is this to say that if someone being monitored by the pineapple connects to a website via http, rather than https, then login information entered could be stripped easily?
Morning all, I'm not particularly knowledgeable about how the wifi pineapple works, or how networking in general works for that matter. So I'm hoping this question makes sense. Is it possible to use the wifi pine apple to log like the username/password someone enters online? I'm imagining a scenario like this: - I set up my pineapple, and it's successfully middle-maning some computer near me. - That computer navigates to gmail.com or something, and logs in. I understand that it's easy to monitor the websites a connected computer visits, but I wonder if some sort of encryption prevents login info from being sent in the clear. If anyone's concerned, I assure I have no malicious intent. The goal is to learn what I can about network security and whatnot by playing around with my home network :) . Thanks!
Hello all, I stumbled across the hak5 store today, and after reading about the Wifi Pineapple I think I'm going to order one soon. My current computer is a Macbook Pro running OSX 10.7.4. I also have an Ubuntu 12.04 VM (VirtualBox). Will I be able to configure and work with the Wifi Pineapple easily enough? From what I've read, trying to use OSX can be difficult and Linux is preferred, but I'm wondering if trying to configure the Wifi Pineapple with a VM brings about any extra complications. I also have a laptop running Windows 7, if that would be the easiest option. However it's a work computer, so I'd rather not, if possible. Hopefully this question's not too vague, if there's other information I should be providing, please let me know! Thanks.
