The Shmoo Group (inventors of lots of fun stuff, including AirSnort) were running around Def Con with a motorized WiFi sniffer. (via O’reilly)
The bot (or “autonomous hacker droid”) runs around under its own power looking for insecure 802.11b networks and sniffing passwords from them. All it’s missing is a V8 and GPS to let you wardrive from the comfort of your own home. Tell it to drive around the block and make a map of all the open access points.
What else did I miss out on this year?
