DroidSheep demonstrates simplicity of session hijacking within a WiFi-Network — just a single click and your facebook, ebay, twitter, linkedin, … account is taken over by an adversary – and you´re defenceless…
When I developed DroidSheep for my Bachelor Thesis, I was seriously surprised and frightened of using any public WiFi.
So I developed a simple tool – DroidSheep Guard – which helps to determine if an attack is running on the network you´re currently using.
DroidSheep Guard runs silently and monitores your phones ARP-Table. As long as everything looks normal, it will be invisible. But in case it detects suspicious entries in your phones ARP-Table, it will pop up and warn you. If you want, the WiFi connection is disabled immediately to protect your accounts.
DroidSheep Guard works with all ARP-Based attacks, like DroidSheep and Faceniff use and even “handmade” attacks will be identified.
DroidSheep Guard works ON ALL ANDROID PHONES! (not only rooted ones!)
