Jinx161 Posted February 12, 2012 Share Posted February 12, 2012 So I just got my new Alfa AP51 Router today, and just flashed it with the newest Mark III firmware. I logged in and got ICS going in windows 7 to test it out, logged into the "Free_Wifi" to see if its working and sure enough ICS is working. I have a few questions though. Please answer seriously, this is an attempt from a novice to probe some peoples minds and expand my own based on their recommendations and ideas, not a plea to walk me through hacking someones facebook or doing all the work for me. So here we go: 1. To my understanding, the pineapple will only get connections from devices that have saved open unsecured networks on auto connect, However I noticed a few associations that said "Pass through Linksys, and Pass through NETGEAR" etc. So these wifi networks that are secure when I scan, so I am curious what the "Pass through" means? Did it just grab them? Also I am kinda new to Infosec and penetration testing and have been reading a lot lately. Besides trying to follow along with the videos on Hak5 and use the pineapple, I was curious what other people are doing with it? I got the pineapple thinking it would be really cool for me to play with at home and mess with my girlfriend on our network and just learn a bit more, but I must say its a bit confusing to me at first. I know a working knowledge of linux and some networking, and understand a lot of different attacks. Currently I am just using Wireshark and watching the stream from the interface sharing the internet with the pineapple as people are on it. Id like to try session hijacking myself but I need to get ferret and hamster going. So 2. What are some things I can do with the pineapple? Id like to read up on more things people are doing and learn about. For now im going to just watch some traffic, and try to mess with ngrep a bit. Thank you for all your input.
