As part of studying computer security I have been trying to figure out the steps in doing a Man-In-the-Middle attack on my Windows XP computer. I have tried so many combinations for the IP addresses with no avail. (On line 7 I did try transposing <default gateway with the inet address with Backtrack 5...I feel like I'm just wasting my time.) These are the steps I have:
1 In Backtrack 5 open up XTerminal and type the following:
2 Next type:
3 If ip forword is set to 0 you'll need to change it to 1 by typing the following:
sudo echo 1 >> cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
4 Next type:
5 Then get the inet address for ipv4.
6 Open up 2 other xTerminal windows and set them lined up next to each other.
7 Then type the following replacing <ip address> and <default gateway> with the victims machine ip address and default gateway ip address respectively:
sudo arpspoof -i eth0 -t <ip address> <default gateway>
8 Then type the following in the 2nd terminal replacing <ip address> and <default gateway> with the inet address and default gateway ip address respectively:
sudo arpspoof -i eth0 -t <default gateway><ip address>
9 Open up an internet browser in the victims machine machine.
10 Then type the following in the 3rd terminal:
sudo driftnet -i eth0
sudo urlsnarf -i eth0
Thanks in advanced for any helpful response.
