Your favorite switch just got even better The Skunk gets a new version for 2022! Still providing the same features you know and love, the software remains the same but the hardware has had some visible changes. Probably the most obvious is the move from the classic green soldermask to a fresh purple. Some changes are not just cosmetic though: the physical footprint has been reduced quite a bit. From 84x75 mm down to 75x61 mm, the Skunk just got a 27% size reduction. It now takes even less space in your hacker backpack or toolbox. This becomes pretty obvious when...
Weapons-grade MitM Syphoon is a MitM (Man-in-the-Middle) tool - it abuses the network to redirect communications from other hosts through itself. This allows sniffing as well as manipulation of communications between hosts on the network. Beat the network into submission When thinking about MitM, the first thing that comes to mind is often sniffing passwords out of clear-text exchanges. This is a gross oversimplification of what Syphoon is capable of. MitM is only the beginning - Syphoon offers a wide range of tools to extract information, manipulate exchanges, strip SSL, redirect network flows and more. Written exclusively in C and optimized...
After reading many of your messages about the Skunk and its features, I was able to get a better understanding of what most users needed. I took some time the past few days to work on implementing the features that seemed to warrant the highest attention. So here it is (finally): version 1.2.0 of the Skunk firmware. In in this article I will try to present the changes brought along by this new update. A better command-line interface One of the key advantages of the Skunk is the simplicity with which it can be configured, simply by plugging in a...
Is your Netsplit tearing up the pockets of your delicate suits while on assignment? Well, you are not alone! I must admit I have been experiencing the same issue myself. This prompted me to design a small cover for the back of the Netsplit - just enough to protect the exposed pins (or rather, protect your clothes from them). After a bit of playing around in Fusion 360, I had exactly what I wanted. I started from the actual PCB outline layer, which I exported as DXF - a format which can be easily imported in Fusion. Printing the result on...
The Skunk is a Gigabit Ethernet tap and switch. Use it as a basic switch whenever you need one, or use it to sniff packets at gigabit speeds. Or write a custom firmware to do something else entirely. That's right - the Skunk firmware is open-source, simple and built with the Dooba SDK. In fact, go check it out if you are interested: https://bitbucket.org/dooba_core/skunk. When it's time to sniff some packets, the Skunk is ready to go in a single command via USB - no fumbling with complex web interfaces and IP address configuration madness. Plug in the cables, enable sniffing and start...
