IASG Lecture: The Magic of Ettercap

A month or two ago I gave a lecture about the rather magical software suite Ettercap for the Information Assurance Student Group at Iowa State University (IASG @ ISU).  Ettercap can do crazy things with Ethernet traffic, including packet tampering, injection, and dropping.  Anyone with an interest in security should watch this; I post it hoping it gives you a better understanding of an Ettercap attack.

Ethics Statement:

Please take this knowledge and use it to better understand the mindset of an attacker and the anatomy of a network attack.  I do not support unethical behavior in any way.  I will not answer any questions regarding malicious use.  This video does not show you how to cover your tracks, meaning that any malicious activities you perform using Ettercap can easily be traced, so don’t do anything stupid!
