Irongeek’s Wall of Social Science Majors

wall of social science majors

If you’ve ever read a story about Defcon, the lede probably had something to do with The Wall of Sheep, the giant pojection of every plaintext username and password crossing the network. You may have even seen one of your favorite sites fall victim to it. One of my favorite people, Irongeek, decided to whip up a little PHP script so that anybody could set up their own Wall of Sheep style system. The backend is powered by the near-magical Ettercap and the script just parses the output into an easy to read format. I think this would be a great warning sign to place on your hotspot’s splash page.

  5. Hmm. That iron geek admin link is a fake. It goes no where. Interesting way of logging who is looking closely tho.

    You don’t need to know PHP to be able to use this.

    “to bad I do not know php…. :(”

    Thats the point of hackaday and purist hacking in general. You dont know something so you either have to go find out who does and see if they’ll share or find out yourself.

    PHP isn’t a bad language to start with, its not quite as intense as an OO language, its readily testable with a web browser, the documentation is pretty good, and its easy to make the output pretty with HTML.

    Yeah, all of the data in the screen shot is fake. Don’t want one of you to pwn me. :) I took a real capture and changed all of the data a little.

    does anybody have a link to a windows binary? sourceforge seems to be having some database trouble.

    wow this guy is obviously a totally ignorant faggot if he thinks social science majors can’t understand H4x0Rzin’. i’m a poli sci major and i take offense to this broad generalization.

  12. faileas says:

  13. DrPepper says:

    @ sco sci maj

    If you take the fence and then get some sheep you could start a pol sci farm.

    Once upon a time there was an invention.

    The inventor showed it to a scientist, who said, “Cool. Why does it work?”

    He showed it to an enginner, who said, “Cool. How does it work?”

    He showed it to an accountant, who said, “Cool. How much will it cost to make?”

    He then showed it to a liberal arts major, who said, “Cool…

    …You want fries with that?”

    i like reading his site. very good tutorials and videos.

  19. dbr says:

    Nice idea.. Few things could be improved though,
    like chaing the shame.php bit in the redirect to

    ..would stop the reload screwing up if the file isn’t named shame.php

    And to start ettercap, add the lines

    if($_GET['etter']==”on”){
    system(“ettercap -Tq -d -m /var/ettertest.txt”);
    }

    and access the script with shame.php?etter=on, which would mean you’d not have to manualy start ettercap. Maybe something that checks if ettercap is running, if not it runs the code would be a better way of doing it.. (Check shell_exec(“ps -a”); for ettercap or something..)

    Irongeek’s site is great, it’s one of the few sites with decent video tutorials, that dont’ start with someone typing in a text editor, which looks.. not the best.. And the rest of the articles are generaly well written/usefull..
