passwdSecurity researcher Robert Fuller discovered an attack method with which Windows and Mac user credentials can be stolen from a locked machine.
This attack is affected against actual Windows and Mac OS computers on which the user has already logged in.

The researcher used USB-based Ethernet dongles like USB Armory or Hak5 Turtle , for which he modified the firmware code to run special software that sets the plug-and-play USB device as the network gateway, DNS, and WPAD servers on the computer it’s connected to.

Router der Marke FRITZ!Box verfügen über einen mehr oder weniger versteckten Modus in dem sich sehr einfach und schnell Paketmitschnitte auf den einzelnen Schnittstellen erstellen und im pcap (packet capture) Format speichern lassen.

Aufrufen lässt sich das Menü über die Webschnittstelle indem die Unterseite /html/capture.html aufgerufen wird. Eine valide Benutzerkennung ist von Nöten.

Beispiel: http://192.168.178.1/html/capture.html
