dSploit: Android-Based Network Penetration Suite
Have you ever wanted to dabble in network security testing? Or just simply test the security of your home network? If so, XDA Forum Member evilsocket may just have the application for you. dSploit is an Android based network penetration suite. A comprehensive set of tools which can be used by anyone in order to perform a number of advanced network related tasks.
dSploit contains a number of powerful functions that allow you to analyze, capture, and manipulate network transactions. You can scan networks for connected devices, identify the operating system, running services and open ports on each device, as well as checking them for vulnerabilities.
You can also use dSploit to perform so-called “man in the middle’ operations. This is where the ‘fun’ comes. You can use it to intercept traffic from a network-attached computer, and mess with it in a number of ways. For example you can cause havoc with friends or family by replacing all images that appear on every web page on a computer with an image you specify. You can also completely block all internet traffic on the computer. There are a number of other tools such as password sniffers and login crackers, which of course should never be used for anything malicious.
The app is currently in beta, so there may be bugs present. However, a large number of users are reporting good feedback in the thread. You need to be running at least Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and the device must be rooted.

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
