The following article is a short introduction to EtterCap 0. Ettercap heaviliy relies on Etterczp spoofing, and if this concept is new to you, you might want to read more about it at www. ARP spoofing could cause damage to your network!
Be sure to try this in a separate lab environment! Ettercap can be found at http: It supports active and passive dissection of many protocols even ciphered ones and includes many features for network and host analysis.
These features include Characters injection in an established connection: You can inject character to server emulating commands or to client emulating replies maintaining the connection alive! You can set up a filter that search for a particular string even hex in the TCP or UDP payload and replace it with yours or drop the entire packet.
Check for other poisoners: EtterCap has the ability to actively or passively find other poisoners on the LAN. We will examine only a few of EtterCap’s features – the rest is up to you. The lab network consists of the following computers. A quick IPConfig on the I start EtterCap on my attacking ettercal Once this is done, a quick ARP scan is performed in order to map out the network, and then the following screen is shown: This is the main screen.
From here you can perform most of EtterCap’s functions. You may press “H” on every screen to get a help menu, as shown in the next picture.

EtterCap knows how to “FingerPrint” machines. This is done by selecting a machine in the main screen, and pressing the “F” button.
I chose a client in my network This will effectively sniff all Internet traffic coming and going to We now chose our source and destination as shown in the next picture, and press “A” in order to start the spoofing.
Once “A” is pressed, the attacked machine gets ARP poisoned, as we can see from the following picture. Notice that the ARP addresses for We now will open an FTP session from the attacked computer just as an example and see what is logged. We can see that the FTP session was captured and logged, including the cleartext username and password. If we chose the specific session and enter it, we will see the actual data that passed on the network see next picture.
We have successfully managed to sniff a machine on a switched network. However, EtterCap can go beyond sniffing, and even intervene in existing sessions. It’s definitely one of those tools worth investigating.

Don’t forget that by pressing “H” on each screen you’ll get a “Help” menu, to guide you as you go along. Where’s the “Beyond” you promised? Well, the beyond bit lies in the etterca the EtterCap can intervene in the traffic stream, and modify strings at our will!
The implications of this are endless, but I’ll give a short demonstration of this capability. Chose the Spoofed ettfrcap and destination computers, as shown before, and start the spoofing process. Press “F” to edit your filters: We want to edit the “Filters on source” to replace www. To do this, we press “W” to enter the Source filters.
We then press “A” to add a filter. Choose the specified filter in case we have a few and press enter to edit it. Add the required input to create your filter. Pressinq “Q” will exit this screen and ask us if we want to save our filter. Choose ” yes “. We are now back at the filter screen. To activate the filter we need to press “S”, etteercap then we should see the filter status turn dttercap “ON”.
We now try to surf to www. In this example we will manipulate text from a financial article on cnn. This is the page before we intervene: Let’s reverse the meaning of the article.
Let’s make the heading – ” Investors cash out “. Basically what this means in Ettercap terms is that we will replace the string “in” to “out”, on the http session.
Please note – this is not a Web server defacement – it’s manipulation of the data stream that reaches a specific host in our network, in conjunction with ARP spoofing.
Conclusion So how do we protect our Organization from this evil, evil type of network activity?
Well, you’re not going to like the answer – There’s no simple way. We could use Arpwatch, which is a small ettercqp that runs on Linux. Or, we could occasionally use Ettercap to check for the presence of other poisoners. I’ve heard of other solutions, concerning switch port security, however I haven’t had the opportunity to test this – I’d be glad to hear your experiences.
By the way, the Egtercap version of Ettercap has many more features and plugins such as DNS spoofing pluginsbut you have to start somewhere right? Note that options in the file override command line.

To dump in HEX mode add the -x option. This example will prevent showing your telnet: Will check if someone is poisoning you and will report its IP. Will tell you if you are on a switched LAN or not. Only works if the LAN is hubbed, or if collected password are directed to your host. SecurityProNews is an iEntry, Inc. Part of the iEntry Network over 4 million subscribers.
