Cookie Cadger: Taking Cookie Hijacking To A New Level Derbycon 2012 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Cookie Cadger: Taking Cookie Hijacking To A New Level
Derbycon 2012

Web providers have started stepping up to the plate since Firesheep was released in 2010. Today, most major websites can provide SSL/TLS during all transactions, preventing cookie data from leaking over wired Ethernet or insecure Wi-Fi. But the fact remains that Firesheep was more of a toy than a tool – and so I’ve created ‘Cookie Cadger’, the first open-source pen-testing tool ever made for intercepting and replaying specific insecure HTTP GET requests into a browser. Cookie Cadger is a graphical utility which harnesses the power of the Wireshark suite and Java to provide a fully cross-platform, entirely open-source utility which can monitor wired Ethernet or insecure Wi-Fi for requests, or load a pre-captured pcap file for offline analysis. The utility (+ source!) will be released to the world during the talk.
