Hack Wi-Fi With The Same SSID To Create Fake Access point. Security researcher N B Sri Harsha's has shared this trick with us.
"Hello friends I Share My One Of My findings trick In WIFI Network.
I Have Found This Vulnerability In My College Network , We have 70 Rooms In Our College , Every Room Has a Router , All Routers Are Connected To A Switch , When I Tried To Connect To A Router It Was Showing Only 1 AP , Rather Than Showing 70 AP's , ( For Both Smartphones And lappies)
This Made Me To Think Something Evil , What will happen If i Started A Wifi Hotspot With The Same SSID :D :D ,
Ya this Worked , Who Are Near To Me Will Connect To My Wifi , *If He Was Connecting For The First Time * , Between I Have Put The Same password as that of my college WiFi password ,
But This is Something Social Engg , To make him To Connect Him For The First time :/ , I don't Like It
Then i Got A New Idea , Why I Should Not Try In Public Open Networks
There Are Many Public Places Which Gives Open Wifi Hotspot . like kfc ,starbucks , pizzhut ...etc
So I Have Tested This Vulnerability With Two Android Devices and Windows 8 lappy
- I Opened My Lappy And It Was Only Showing One SSID
- When I Tried To Connect , It Was Connecting To The Wifi Hotspot Which is Near
- So if in a public place , if the attacker starts a fake access point with same SSID , The Victim Who Is Near To Attacker hotspot , Will Be Connected To The Attacker's AP , The Attacker Can Now Sniff The Packets
I Have Checked This Vulnerability In Laptops And Smartphones , Both Are Vulnerable.
So Every Traffic Will be Sent To Your Access Point So you Can Do Man In The Middle Attack.
This Video Will Help You In How To Create An Fake AP and Capture traffic
The Script used In The Video :- link So I Will Be Going To Make A Full Demonstration Video On This After My Exams , probably in the end of this month.
Thanks For Viewing :)"
