Sniff and intercept web session profiles on Android

Cyber Chief Magazine brings you the tactics to uncover and neutralize the insider threat

FaceNiff is an Android app that allows you to sniff and intercept web session profiles over the Wi-Fi that your mobile is connected to.

It is possible to hijack sessions only when Wi-Fi is not using EAP, but it should work over any private networks (Open/WEP/WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK).

It’s kind of like Firesheep for Android and it works on WPA2.

A rooted phone is required and keep in mind that if the user uses SSL this application won’t work.
