1) Relies on auto-connections ie the device connnects without the owner being aware. You can then attempt to exploit it. Target the fake-AP ESSID to something the device has likely connected to previously eg Starbucks WiFi 2) Sometimes it is easier to steal the handshake than sniff it passively. Set up the AP with the same name and channel as the target, and then DOS the target. Airbase will save a pcap containing the handshake to /root/PwnSTAR-n.cap. 3) Provides an open network, so you can sniff the victim's activities. 4) Uses apache to serve a webpage. There is an option to load your own page eg one you have cloned. The provided page (hotspot_3) asks for email details. Note the client is forced to the page by DNS spoofing. They can only proceed to the internet if you manually stop dnsspoof. DNS-caching in the client is a problem with this technique. The captive portal in the advanced menu is a better way of hosting hotspot_3 5&6) Provides all the arduous config files to properly set-up these attacks. http://code.google.com/p/pwn-star/downloads/list Have fun, and READ THE SCRIPT!
