Ettercap-Graphical is a comprehensive suite for man in the middle attacks. It features sniffing of live connections, content filtering on the fly and many other interesting tricks. It supports active and passive dissection of many protocols and includes many features for network and host analysis.

Ettercap-Graphical is a tool made by Alberto Ornaghi (ALoR) and Marco Valleri (NaGA) and is basically a suite for man in the middle attacks on a LAN. For those who do not like the Command ike Interface (CLI), it is provided with an easy graphical interface.

Ettercap-Graphical is able to perform attacks against the ARP protocol by positioning itself as “man in the middle” and, once positioned as this, it is able to:
– infect, replace, delete data in a connection
– discover passwords for protocols such as FTP, HTTP, POP, SSH1, etc …
– provide fake SSL certificates in HTTPS sections to the victims.
– etc …
