This is a short post about howmanypeoplearearound, an open source tool in Python that can help you identify the number of people in the vicinity of your WiFi connection.
If you stay in California and want to protect your privacy, or you want to circumvent internet censorship imposed by your government or simply want to stay anonymous on the wire chances are you use use TOR or use a anonymous, no-log-keeping VPN. This post lists a few Do-It-Yourself projects that involves not more than a Raspberry Pi to try and keep you anonymous. As always I will try to keep this post updated. Additionally, if you know of any projects that I may have missed, you sure can let me know!
An older post describing Wifiphisher can be found here. Recently an update was made to the open source tool that helps you execute speedy and automated phishing attacks against wireless networks. Most notably, this new release includes the Lure10 attack – a novel way for associating automatically with any device that is within range running the latest Windows.
A human is the weakest link in cyber security and tools like Wifiphisher cement the fact. This tool exploits this weak link by launching a social-engineering attack leading the user to a phishing page and then you can get the users password or install your stuff.
