Welcome back to 2-Bullet Tuesday, where we’ll share useful tips and awesome stuff sent in by you, the users who made the Omega2 possible!
A WiFi sniffer project that talks to WireShark posted on the Onion Community by Tommaso Tani was our favorite project this week.
The Omega is configured as a WiFi AP and uses tcpdump to capture all of the inbound and outbound WiFi traffic. The data is then piped using SSH to a computer running WireShark so it can be analyzed and visualized:
Awesome work Tommaso! We dig that you’re taking the white-hat approach to show people how insecure open WiFi networks really are and how easy it is to fall victim to a man in the middle attack!
