While we certainly don’t condone malicious hacking, a friendly prank played on friends and family often doesn’t hurt. Users looking to play some jokes on their pals via their internet connection now can using an app that does all the hard work for you.
XDA Senior Member EdgaBimbam lets us know about Netwoork Spoofer, which allows users to have a little more control than is typically necessary on unsecured internet connections. As EdgaBimbam explains:
