Hotspotter

 

Project Homepage: http://remote-exploit.org/codes_hotspotter.html

 

Local Mirror: hotspotter-0.4.tar.gz  MD5: 1fa7f4822732c8798832f8ce2f4fb703

 

Hotspotter passively monitors the network for probe request frames to identify the preferred networks of Windows XP clients, and will compare it to a supplied list of common hotspot network names.  If the probed network name matches a common hotspot name, Hotspotter will act as an access point to allow the client to authenticate and associate. -Hotspotter homepage

 

NOTE: Hotspotter only works with the hostap drivers/prism cards.

 

UPDATE: Due to the changed behaviour of windows clients as a result of the recent changes in Microsoft service packs hotspotter's effectiveness has been depreciated; more specifically the fact that that windows clients (by default) no longer probe for networks they have previously been connected to - if those networks are not visible (for more information see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917021).

 

 

Installation:

 

tar zxvf hotspotter-0.4

 

cd hotspotter-0.4

 

make

 

 

Hotspotter Options:

 

 

 

Running Hotspotter:

 

cd hotspotter-0.4/src

 

./hotspotter -i ath0 -f ssidlist -a

 

Note: Do not put the interface into monitor mode prior to running hotspotter, the tool will do this itself.

 

 

 

Client Connection and switch to AP mode:

 

Once a client has been detected - hotspotter will switch to AP mode to allow the client to connect.

 

 

Commands can be added to the initial hotspotter command with the -e option to allow further interaction with the host i.e. by starting dhcpd and allocating an IP to the client.

 

e.g. hotspotter -i wlan0 -f HOTSPOTLIST -a -e dhcpd
