On getting Pineappled at Web Directions South

So I’ve just wrapped up another Web Directions presentation where the Pineapple has featured. The what now?! You know, the WiFi Pineapple, that little guy with the ability to do all sorts of nasty things to wireless traffic. Now I’ve Pineappled before, but I’ve never Pineappled quite like this and that’s all down to the Mark V which performed significantly better than the old IV when it comes to the act of Pineappling people.

You can read the background on the device in the links above if it’s unfamiliar to you, let me give you an example of what I see in the Pineapple UI. Keeping in mind that the most recent record is first, here’s a device probing for known SSIDs:

KARMA: Successful association of 84:38:35:56:6b:80
KARMA: Checking SSID for start of association, pass through slqwireless
KARMA: Probe Request from 84:38:35:56:6b:80 for SSID 'BigPond0AC3'
KARMA: Probe Request from 84:38:35:56:6b:80 for SSID 'DCA-STUDENT'
KARMA: Probe Request from 84:38:35:56:6b:80 for SSID 'DCA-STAFF'
KARMA: Probe Request from 84:38:35:56:6b:80 for SSID 'QUT'
KARMA: Probe Request from 84:38:35:56:6b:80 for SSID 'ABC_WIFI'
KARMA: Probe Request from 84:38:35:56:6b:80 for SSID 'Goat'
KARMA: Probe Request from 84:38:35:56:6b:80 for SSID 'School House'
KARMA: Probe Request from 84:38:35:56:6b:80 for SSID 'maryellen'
KARMA: Probe Request from 84:38:35:56:6b:80 for SSID 'slqwireless'

The last line and the second line tell the story. The device has previously associated with an SSID of “slqwireless”. This network did not have any encryption so when the Pineapple observed the probe request and then changed its own SSID to “slqwireless”, the device happily connected to it. It has now been Pineappled. Further up in the Pineapple interface I also see this:

44473 84:38:35:56:6b:80 Artemis 01:84:38:35:56:6b:80

This tells us the device on that MAC address is named “Artemis” and has been assigned an IP address of “”. This is useful as it means we can start to take a stab at who owns the device and when requests are then made via that IP address, we’ll know who’s making them. Often the device is named something like “SerenasiPhone4S” which starts to narrow things down a bit. Is there someone in the immediate vicinity named “Serena” and using an iPhone 4S? There’s your target.

So that’s how we can identify the devices and potentially the individuals connecting, now lets’ look at what we can do after that.

DNS spoof

This is my usual approach as it’s not something that’s really going to invade anyone’s privacy (later approaches we’ll discuss are a different story). What DNS spoof does is simply routes requests for a host name to another target. For example, you could reroute all requests for to That would work for all HTTP requests to Google but not for HTTPS requests as you now have an encrypted transport layer (I’ll come back to that too).

Now this approach only works when the Pineapple actually has an internet connection, for example by being tethered to my PC via ethernet whilst the PC wifis into an access point. Doing this would mean we could do things like, say, load the normal page then replace every JPG image with my photo instead (crikey, imagine that?!)

Instead, I use the built in web server on the Pineapple to serve up a little web page of my own. I call it Pineapple Surprise and as you can see from that link, it simply loads a page like this:

Stack Overflow dnsspoof

My objective is purely to raise awareness about the risks of unknown wireless connections and apps that don’t sufficiently implement SSL and that’s the best way I can think of to do that without invading anyone’s privacy and I’ll talk more about that in a moment. But if you did want to do that, well…

TCP dump

Going back to the point about routing traffic through an intermediary, a dead easy approach with the Pineapple is just to capture every packet that connected devices send through it. Every packet! This means that for every request that’s not made securely over HTTPS, the Pineapple has your data and it can be read by an attacker. Credentials, authentication tokens, personal data on web pages – if it’s not properly protected then it’s captured, stored and can later be analysed using a tool like Wireshark.

That’s seriously nasty business and every single one of those devices that connected to my Pineapple at Web Directions could very easily have succumbed to an attack like that. But again, it only matters when the traffic isn’t sufficiently protected by the app! That’s the real story here.

Manipulation of insecure responses

A little while back I wrote about how Your login form posts to HTTPS but you blew it when you loaded it over HTTP. This is exactly the sort of risk the Pineapple can exploit; who cares if the site posts over SSL when the page your entering your creds into has a keylogger that’s already captured them and sent them to the attacker before you even hit the submit button?! I’m sure you can see the problem.

SSL strip

Ok, so secure requests are ok, right? Kinda. Let’s imagine you go to your credit card account by typing “” into the address bar then hit the enter key – what happens? The browser makes an HTTP request to the domain where it then responds with an HTTP 302 “Redirect” asking the browser to load the HTTPS version instead. That works just fine – usually.

SSL strip has the ability to take that original request, receive the response from the server then make the HTTPS request itself. It then sits in the middle talking HTTPS to the server but HTTP to the client. So long as the client isn’t explicitly making HTTPS requests, you’re cactus.

Web Directions results

Nothing answers the “Isn’t a man in the middle attack really just a bit hypothetical?” question like pointing out how many people are willingly sending their data over a rogue access point! Actually, “willingly” is probably a bit unfair as the device will connect of its own accord without the owner consciously connecting to the Pineapple. So I turned it on and had a wander around the Web Directions conference. Many people were Pineappled:

People getting Pineappled at Web Directions South

Once Pineappled, it meant a lot of this sort of thing was happening:

Have had to turn off WiFi as I'm getting auto connected to networks which don't work and I can't 'forget' in settings. #wds13

Gah! Snared by @troyhunt’s rogue wifi network! #wds13

Beware the free network wifi pineapple. ;-) #wds13

In this context and IMHO, this is a very good thing. It’s a good thing in that it’s very impactful and in this context, the Pineapple wasn’t doing anything unethical. During my talk where I demonstrated how easy it was to inject a keylogger into a form loaded over HTTP, it made a world of difference being able to then refer to all the connections the Pineapple made.

All told and in the space of about 30 minutes, attendees broadcast probe requests for 997 SSID:
