Hack Easily From Your Smartphone

This week at at DefCon, Itzhak Avraham and his security firm Zimperium showed off their new Android app “The Android Network Toolkit” called “Anti” for short.  The new “hacking” app will be available for free on the Android Market sometime this week but there will also be an option of a $10  corporate upgrade.

The company says that the app was made for the purpose to increase security awareness but we both know that people won’t be using it for that reason.

Here’s how it works:

The app scans for surrounding open networks, target devices on those networks as well as revealing ip addresses of the network.  When the selected target is identified, a menu will pop up on the app (see image).  There are multiple links to choose from such as “M.I.T.M.” (Man In The Middle), or “Attack”.  Now the app isn’t designed to do any serious hacking (Only white hat hacking).  What you CAN do is little things such as opening the calculator, grab a screenshot, or eject a CD.  These are all harmless things you can do but still fun messing around with.

Seems like a great app, keep checking the market to see when it comes out.
