Description

A collection of tools for network auditing and penetration testing. Dsniff, filesnarf, mailsnarf, msgsnarf, urlsnarf and webspy allow to passively moni tor a network for interesting data (passwords, e-mail, files). Arpspoof, dnsspo of and macof facilitate the interception of network traffic normally unavailab le to an attacker (e.g, due to layer-2 switching). Sshmitm and webmitm impleme nt active monkey-in-the-middle attacks against redirected SSH and HTTPS sessio ns by exploiting weak bindings in ad-hoc PKI.
