MODULE 11:- Sniffing and Spoofing
Welcome back, you are reading Penetration Testing Tutorial and I hope learnt lots of things and enjoyed to reading my blog.Today I will cover Arp poisoing attack with ettercap tutorial in Kali Linux 2.0 through this articles. If you want to get good knowledge about arp poisioning attack its my suggestion don’t left article in middle read complete tutorial for best knowledge.
What is ARP?
ARP stand for Address Resolution Protocol It works on network layer and used to resolve IP Address into a MAC Address (physical Address). When a new computer or device is connected in the network it broadcast its MAC Address over the TCP/IP network, then all the connected devices find the MAC address of new machine and make the entry into the ARP table. It also request to obtain the MAC address and IP address of connected devices in network by broadcasting and When it gets the reply from the connected devices with IP and MAC it create a ARP table and make the entry of IP address and MAC address of connected devices.
To see the available arp table in your PC run the following command in command line prompt
This command will work both Linux and Window systems.
ARP Poisoning Attack:
ARP poisoning is type of attack in which Attacker changes the MAC address on victim’s ARP table. Attacker sends request and reply with forged packets to the victim, victim think these packets come from destination and can’t identify the forged packets and it make entry of forged MAC into his ARP table. As result victim sends packets to the attacker machine instead of real machine because, Now Victim works according its ARP table where destination MAC address is replaced by Attacker’s MAC.
ARP poisoning attack is very effective over the network, wired or wireless. By the help of this attack, Attacker can steal very sensitive information like username, password and credit card information.
Ettercap is a comprehensive suite for man in the middle attacks. It features sniffing of live connections, content filtering on the fly and many other interesting tricks. It supports active and passive dissection of many protocols and includes many features for network and host analysis.
