Maybe you heard about “DroidSheep” or “DroidSheep Guard” and your are looking for information about these apps.
DroidSheep [Root] is an Android app for Security analysis in wireless networks and capturing facebook, twitter, linkedin and other accounts.
DroidSheep Guard is another Android app for monitoring Androids ARP-table. It tries to detect ARP-Spoofing on the network, such as an attack by DroidSheep, FaceNiff and other software.
DroidSheep demonstrates how easy an attack like this can be – Just start DroidSheep, click the START button and wait until someone uses one of the supported websites. Jumping on his session simply needs one more click. That´s it.
Although DroidSheep is not made for doing such attacks, anyone can test and assure that it really works. For the ones who are interested in how this works, there is the source code public available (see download section).
DroidSheep is NOT INTENDED TO STEAL IDENTITIES.
It shall show the weak security properties of big websites.
Please be always aware of what you’re doing.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES THAT HAPPEN BY USING THIS SOFTWARE!
DroidSheep was developed as a tool for testing the security of your accounts and is based on my Bachelor thesis with title “Session Hijacking on Android Devices”. This software is neither made for using it in public networks, nor for hijacking any other persons account.
It should only demonstrate the poor security properties network connections without encryption have.
So do not get DroidSheep to harm anybody or use it in order to gain unauthorized access to any account you do not own! Use this software only for analyzing your own security!
