Hacking Your Friends and Neighbors For Fun

  • Joshua Wright
  • Thursday, January 23rd, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

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

My neighbor-hack AP is set up 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 set up your own neighbor-hack AP and, in the process, you'll learn just how scary (or fun) an open wireless AP can be.
