Performing Man in the Middle Attack Using Ettercap

Last night one of the reader of my blog has asked me to write an detailed post on Man in the Middle attack so I deeply searched on Google and brought to the following results below- The man-in-the-middle attack (also known as a bucket-brigade attack and abbreviated
MITM) is a form of active eavesdropping  in which the attacker makes independent  connections with the victims and relays messages between them, making them believe
that they are talking directly to each other over a private connection when in fact the
entire conversation is controlled by the attacker.

Brief description of Ettercap

Ettercap is a suite for man in the middle attacks on LAN (local area network ). 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 (even ciphered ones) and includes many feature for network and host analysis. In this tutorial i will explain how to sniff (user names,passwords) in LAN using Ettercap.

Man in the Middle Attack Using Ettercap :

1. First of all download Ettercap From Here

2. After installation it open Ettercap , select sniff mode and select your network interface

3. Now scan for hosts in your sub net  by going to Hosts ---> scan for hosts

Now open host list from hosts tab and select the IP address of the victim as target 1 and IP address of the router as target 2 respectively.

Now start ARP poisoning by going to mitm ---> ARP Poisoning. Note- ARP Poisoning is a technique used to attack an Ethernet wired or wireless network and sniff some data frames on a local area network (LAN).

Finally start the sniffer by going to start ---> start sniffing . Now if victim logs into Gmail , face book yahoo mail...etc. .we will get the user name and password.

Done !
