Permanent link: [Article]-Video: Man-in-the-Middle Attack on MySpace with Cain
By Brian Wilson, CISSP, CCNA, CCSE, CCAI, MCP, Network+, Security+, JNCIA
Last year at ChicagoCon 2007, Brian Wilson gave a great talk entitled "Cain & Abel: Windows Can Hack, Too!" Although the presentation and audio recording of the talk can be downloaded from the ChicagoCon Media Lab
2007 Evening Presentation Files, I had totally forgotten to publish his videos. Just in case things didn't go as planned during the live event or his laptop crapped out on him, Brian made a video of the MITM attack he demonstrated using Cain. They made it on the DVD passed out to the attendees, but unfortunately not in his column... until now!
Although we often talk about this incredibly versatile tool here on EH-Net, for the uninitiated...
Cain & Abel is a password recovery tool for Microsoft Operating Systems. It allows easy recovery of various kind of passwords by sniffing the network, cracking encrypted passwords using Dictionary, Brute-Force and Cryptanalysis attacks, recording VoIP conversations, decoding scrambled passwords, recovering wireless network keys, revealing password boxes, uncovering cached passwords and analyzing routing protocols.
Thanks again Brian. Please offer Brian your thoughts and also requests for additional Cain vids.
