  1. Hi. I'm trying to devise a means to quite literally find a phone - perhaps in a field etc. I can see with various tools some makes of phones and even detect how far away they are by seeing the signal strength. However, some phones appear to be silent or perhaps are using random MACs? In my use case I wont know the MAC address of the phone so all I need is to know there is one and how far away it is. I appreciate the range is limited, but thats fine. I've seen old and newish Samsung phones get detected while out of range from their APs. Equally, I've seen Huawei not. What happens for the ones that cant be detected away from their home AP is that as they come in range, I suddenly see them. This is with the likes of airodump-ng, kismet, and from gitgub trackerjacker. On the Tetra, I cant see this 2nd class of phone with Recon, signal strength or site survey modules. I'd tried to use the Tetra with the likes of airodump-ng in parallel to get get the Tetra to respond to probe requests. My assumption if the phone isn't using random MACs is that it is in fact silent until the AP reaches out 1st. Does anybody have any thoughts or way of detecting such devices. My remaining idea is to simply try to detect any 2.4G signals emanating from the phones. Thanks.
  2. Hi All, I have a question regarding the pineapple but a bit of background would probably be helpful. On a daily basis my job is to hunt down and remove unauthorized WiFi devices people accidentally bring into a very large building. My management has decided they don't want any outside WiFi devices and have put money into technical solutions. I have an enterprise solution that can put me to within 20 meters of the target device. This system will provide me with the MAC address of the offending WiFi device. Once I am in the area, I have a WiFi sniffer that will give me a MAC address readout with it's associated RSSI. Before the pineapple I would wait for the device to broadcast every 30 seconds to 20 minutes depending the device's broadcast frequency. Tracking could take hours. The pineapple really changed the game. When the device connects to the pineapple the hunting time drops fantastically. In the best of scenarios the WiFi device pushes out a steady stream of RF breadcrumbs to the pineapple that allow me to track it down. Here's the problem. There are many devices I've come across that the pineapple cannot ensnare. At last check my pineapple is blasting about 400 different SSIDs to attract attention but the fish aren't biting. Anyway, here's my question. Is there anything I can do to get these devices (mostly phones) to just respond. I have the MAC address. I know I am within range. Is there anything I can do, pineapple or not, to just get these devices to just chirp. I'm not at all interested in connecting. I just need a steady, repeatable response to assist with tracking. I know this may be a bit of an odd application but any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help you can provide. Skinny
  3. Hello, If I use the SDR to listen in on airplane communications, can I be tracked and located? The reason I'm asking is because if I can be located, and it is easy to tell I am listening to such communications, this could be a big safety hazard for me (more than what curiosity is worth) in the part of the world I'm living in. Should I be worried? In case it makes a difference, I will interchangeably be using two antennas, the ANT500 Telescopic Antenna and the GSM 900 - 1800 MHz Antenna. Thanks.
  4. Is it possible to integrate snoopy by gleen at sensepost with the Mark V https://github.com/sensepost/Snoopy http://money.cnn.com/2014/03/20/technology/security/drone-phone/ On a side note i have tried installing this W/O the pineapple and havn't been successful on using ubuntu server.
  5. I want to use the pineapple to bridge clients to a MiFi unit. As my cellular traffic has a monthly limit, I would like to track the monthly usage of each client on the network. I would like the be able to determine which of my clients is excessively using the bandwidth. I am less concerned about a per-protocol breakdown, and more concerned about over all per client traffic. Is there an infusion that would be able to track this? Per hostname would be best as the IP address could change.
