Wifi insecurity via HTTP, Sniff, URL playback

Post by DNR »

------------ Rant/NFOrmative POST by DNR aka covert1 --------------------
copyright pissed away, the internet is insecure anyways..

Foundstone Cookie Digger + SBC/ATTwifi CC login experiment

Whut?: to demonstrate insecure wifi/cabled communications. This can also be assembled via a packet sniffer that can replay URLs.

By:DNR/covert1 4/22/06

CC data is used in this experiment, and has been changed to protect the owner of the card.

Don't bother trying to replay the data, modifications made to disable them.

BTW, the #$%& post doublespaced the cookie data, it is easier to read in singlespace as thats the way its displayed in sniffers.

I fire up _Foundstone Cookie Digger v1.0_, and put in the URL of the site I want to go to-

a wifi pay connex website. I expect to find personal data exposed in PLAINTEXT HTTP
transmissions. You'll see why MAC address spoofing could be important. What was disappointing was this is a HTTPS server..

By Visiting the SBC/ATT wifi paysite,the webserver makes a GET request. This obtains my MAC

address of my wifi card and my IP. It can query on browser version, MS user/workgroup, and even machine type.

https://secure.sbc.com/ccform.adp?Proxy ... rnHost=nmd%







You can read between the html coding to identify the numbers:
You can see the MAC address

>My machine's current mac and IP>

Description : Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN - Packet Scheduler Miniport
Phys Address: 00:90:4B:F1:F9:75

The server is also identifying the wifi access point I am likely to be using.
nmd.caribuo517.shelby.mi, if the Feds wanted to trace me, all they would have to do is come

to this Caribuo Coffee shop in Shelby, mi. This is an example of a third party host.


The visitor will input their CC data and by clicking "Submit" The data input into the

webpage is sent over the network - a POST to the webserver..

<<_name and CC data_ changed of course for those criminal minded>>

Webpage POST









you have all the data you need to _'re-use'_ this CC number, name, exp.date, even the CCV2

number.<<again don't bother, the CC data has been changed dumbass>>

The POST data also includes the host, my MAC, my IP, and refers to a ID, a cookie planted

on my box. A 'TraceRoute' if you will,down to the location of the wifi access point

(shelby) and right to my laptop.

If data is sent in plaintext, rather than scrambled in cyphertext, it exposes the NFOmation

to anyone in the path of the user and server. No matter if you are sniffing the airwaves at

a wifi AP, or sitting on a desktop on a network segment.


Customer clicks "I agree" to TOS, webpage POST













Missing the expr. year and CCV #, but you still see the CC number and owner in plaintext.
Again my personal NFO exposed in Plaintext on the network.


_________The Implications of this Experiment_

With a MAC and IP, you can spoof a logged-in user, old school Session Hijacking applies

here. DoS the user and the server may never know who is who..

With PACKET SNIFFING, URL recorders (sorta like a keylogger), you can see the data that is

being transmitted, in the air as wifi RF, or on a network segment.Some are cyphertext and

might be crackable, some are Plaintext, english and a bit of HTML is the only requirement.

Criminal acts committed on networks-
Possession of the machine with the MAC address used in a crime is almost prima facie

evidence, sorta like holding a gun - the grooves in the barrel will match you back to the

crime.. But if MAC address insecurity can be proven, the Prosecutor/Legal System may not be

able to rely on a MAC address as undeniable proof..Sorta like swapping barrels on the guns,


Feel Free to discuss this with me.

Any Errors on this page is not my fault, so shut the hell up.

um,now for real: is this SBC/ATT wifi paysite completely nuts?! 8O
transmitting sensitive CC data in cleartext would me keep away from using this site at all! establishing the https protocol takes only a couple of minutes, this is more than ridiculous. all you would have to do is scanning for networks and once connected (we all know how easy this is, encrypted or not) sniffing the packets in promiscuous mode....cracking the validation md5 hash...and voila: all data you need for criminal activity of any kind (CC fraud, connection hijacking for example)!

do you have information about the APs of this provider, I mean, do they have own ones?
nmap -v -sS -sV -O -P0 -p0-65535 would be real interesting then, maybe you can provide a scan log (but safety first of course :wink:) ...
if the security of these APs is as strong as the site´s one (strong like a wet paperbag in this case :lol: ) it may be even possible to harvest sensitive data of users.

real sweet post mate... :wink:

saga of wifi insecurity

Post by DNR »


I ran a few tests on this network this am, Sitting in the parking lot of a Chili's, in my Olds Intrigue. Drinking my 4xexpresso, watching traffic increase as the day wakes...I am pressed for time, so this post may be incomplete.

The short answer is the AP is likely a CISCO AP, controlled by ROmpager and working with AOLserver to manage it. The long answer? Continue below, a vomit of digital obsession.....

Some stuff here I printed as courtesy to the n00bs,read in the <<< >>>



<<Netstat to verify my assigned IP and whom I am connected to for online wifi>>>

netstat -n = my assigned IP =

You asked about Nmap, and it did not return much results as far as port scans and OS fingerprinting as I did with several


I am tired. more on this later, perhaps someone can point out important details or a direction for me to go..

ah,I see what you mean....that´s pretty strange...

hmm...well,it´s pretty late at night here too now, but the first thing that came to my mind was: maybe a bastion network architecture?
I mean, your box has a private network IP, the private area would only supply the authentification to be connected with the public area (internet) then....
I have to think about this again when I had some sleep....later... :lol:
