    Default WiFi Pineapple

    What are your guys opinions on this device? Is it worth the 100$ price tag if you're really interested in learning every thing there is to learn about wireless security.
    I have a wrt54g v8 AP running in my apartment building with no security and an SSID of "use_at_own_risk" and several people are still deciding to use this unsecured AP. I can't seem to sniff any of there traffic but im literly a baby when it comes to any of this wireless stuff. Im very good with linux.

    If the router is not yours, you shouldn't mess with it. You shouldn't even connect to it, even though there is no security. Sniffing a AP that doesn't belong to you is considered an illegal activity and thus, it's discussion is not supported by this forums, according to the forum rules.

    As for the pineapple device, I can't give my opinion as I never owned one (except that 100$ seems too much for something you can create using a laptop, a wireless interface and the aircrack suite + some other tools). But I can tell you that any router should be enough for you to set up your own test lab. I have two relatively old speedtouch routers and both work great for testing purposes, letting me learn in a safe environment. I can create my "victims", set up services and exploit them without worrying about messing something up.

    Apparently Darren uses this router:

    If you could find the software you could get it a little cheaper.

    This is the old version of Jasager, Darren's software is a little more capable.

    You could also look on hak5 forums if someone is willing to pass you a nvram copy of their pineapple.
    Great minds have purposes, others have wishes

    While I don't approve of what you were talking about with regards to illegalities, I will tell you about my little piece of coding I developed a while back. It's called quickset and it will do everything the pineapple will do and more. Check it out at

    If you have any questions hit me up.

    Pffbt..[quote]I made a discovery today. I found a computer. Wait a second, this is cool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake, it's because I screwed it up. Not because it doesn't like me... Or feels threatened by me.. Or thinks I'm a smart ass.. [/quote]
