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.
To learn more, head on over to the application thread.
