FaceNiff Visit to Facebook From Android Smartphones

02 Jun

FaceNiff makes it easy to hack Fackebook from android smartphones. FaceNiff is an Android application that lets users sniff and intercept web session profiles over Wi-Fi networks, stealing other users’ credentials from services such as Facebook, Twitter and others.

The app requires root access on the user’s Android smartphone, but other than that it’s fairly simple to use, which makes it perhaps even more dangerous than Firesheep, a Firefox extension that lets users hijack Facebook and Twitter sessions over Wi-Fi networks. FaceNiff also works on WPA-encrypted Wi-Fi networks, which Firesheep doesn’t support.

It is better of using HTTPS, which offers a fair degree of protection against attacks such as those from FaceNiff and FireSheep. If you still haven’t switched to HTTPS connection on all your favorite web services which support it (both Facebook and Twitter have the option), we recommend you do so right now.Besides Facebook and Twitter, the latest version of FaceNiff also works with YouTube, Amazon and Polish social network Nasza-Klasa.

Amazing! At the moment, you might need to drop your burden on carrying a laptop computer to walk about looking for who to sniff,… Android has actually made that incredibly simple for you to do so. My question now is, Is it a necessary evil? I won’t thing so… Anyways, I’ll get back to you on this topic as I find out more.
