How to use urlsnarf

It is very easy to use urlsnarf, But you should understand where you should use the tool.

The tool is useful after exploitation, or at the Information gathering point.

Once you have compromised the targets network using aircrack-ng or any other wireless attack tool the use urlsnarf to listen to what exactly the target is searching for or what is happening in the target network.

To use the tool yu can just enter

urlsnarf -i eth0

urlsnarf -i <Target network>

I am using eth0 as the target network and there is also a disadvantage that is the tool is built to sniff only in ports 80, 8080, 3128.


Where is the popular port 443 is not listed so, Mostly probably we can’t sniff using urlsnarf in HTTPS sites?


Urlsnarf is a great tool to do sniffing but the tool doesn’t sniff port 443 which is a big disadvantage.
