Resurrection: sniffing tool Ettercap has returned
More than six years after the arrival of 0.73, the Ettercap developers have released version 0.74 of their open source security tool for man-in-the-middle attacks on LAN. Although the only change was the removal of several small bugs, many are excited just to see that Ettercap has been revived after such a long time. Fittingly, the developers named the new version Lazarus.
Ettercap is still the tool of choice for pen testers who want to redirect connections in switched LANs via their own computers. The H's associates at heise Security also use the tool to test manufacturers' security claims and analyse secure data transfers.
