Hacking Your Friends and Neighbors For Fun

  • Joshua Wright
  • Friday, January 18th, 8:15pm - 9:15pm

I regularly see my neighbors trying to connect to open wireless APs I run in my house. A while back, I setup a special open AP to give them Internet access. The cost? My entertainment.

My neighbor-hack AP is setup to manipulate the web traffic of its users, randomly redirecting people to websites of my choosing, manipulating the format and content of pictures they download and more. All it takes is an inexpensive AP, a Linux box and an Internet connection.

In this talk, I'll show you how to setup your own neighbor-hack AP and, in the process, you'll learn just how scary (or fun) an open wireless AP can be.
