Ok i had a question earlier and this is my results.
I was wondering if ettercap automatically adds new hosts and arp posions them.
I have 2 labtops on a wireless network. i made sure to watch autoscan to make sure my labtop was on and off the network. So i started ettercap and then posioned the only thing which was the router. then logged on the net with the other computer. seen it come up as a request on ettercap, but the computer was not posioned. logged into hotmail, facebook, etc and the username and password does not get intercepted.
So then i restart ettercap and do the same thing and sure enough, boom ettercap works.
So is there something i don't know about to keep ettercap current to keep adding a new host after ettercap is already ran?
