when u connect to a wifi hotspot, what information can the hotspot owner see when a person connects using a wifi card if they use 3rd party traffic analysis/logging software? eg: MAC address, pc name etc
also, if ur wifi network card is using a fake MAC address that was changed using a mac address changer software, can the hotspot owner use a tool to see what the original MAC address is?
Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
I'd say the only way to do it would be to run an exploit and get control of the hacker PC, and from there try to figure out the original MAC address. Unfortunately though I don't think there's been any exploits found for BT4 yet
Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".
Yes they can see everything thats not encrypted unless a vpn or ssh is used as suggested by barry.
And no they can't detect if you have a spoofed mac.
Also they dont even need to connect to see this information, in fact its far easier if you just sniff it all and then later decode the packets.
Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.
