FaceNiff for Android lets you hack facebook accounts with one tap – video

I would take this post as more of a warning for all who have a facebook account to make sure they lock it down before you have anyone on your Wi-Fi hacking into it and exploiting it. The FaceNiff app will actually creep into secure networks as well running WPA, WEP, and WPA2, so its really best to lock your facebook down too by setting your account access to use ‘https’. The developer Bartosz Ponurkiewicz lets us know that this not only works with facebook, but also Twitter, YouTube and Nasza-Klasa (a Polish Facebook clone). He also states that more site login support will be on the way.

In the video below, you’ll see how easy it is for someone to use this app and gain access to your facebook page with nothing but an Android device, making this a good secret weapon for your prankster friends, or even a revengeful tool for your enemies. Check it out. Also, instructions to lock your facebook page can be found here.

    It looks scary but from the looks of it on the video the hacker needs to get into the secured wifi and therefore needs the password to do so. Am I getting this wrong?

    It does seem to be a case of just grabbing the logins of those connected to the same wifi access point.

    The article may be a bit misleading when it mentions the app “creeping” into secure networks, it’s most likely that although it will work on secure networks you will need to be connected to begin with.

    There have been plugins like this for Firefox in the past. they work by watching traffic flow in the network you are already connected to for anyone sending information about their Facebook account. you have to join the network on your own through maybe a public WiFi or just a friends WiFi that you have the password for.

    Normally the easiest way to protect against anything like this is to put https:// in front of your URL or just don’t log into Facebook while connected to public WiFi’s.
