This new Security and Online Safety subsection is pretty cool, but I am just gonna treat it as a hacking subsection as well.
So I am about to go on a 36-hour journey to India and one of the things that I wanted to take away from Mr. Borges’ networking class was how to bypass the portal that you pay through for airplane wifi. Even though we didn’t learn the technicalities or the execution we learned the basic concepts and I feel as if I have an easy solution to my problem.
What I want to do is spoof my MAC address as an address that is already granted access to the wifi.
To do this I will scan the network on whatever the port or channel of the airplane wifi is on and I will get there IP which I can then turn into a MAC address with an arp request. Then I will just use a random MAC address “changer” or spoofer to spoof my MAC address and connect to the network.
There are a couple issues with this:
- I need to know what software exactly to use which I do not
- If I spoof someone else’s MAC address, will they still be able to connect to the network? I don’t want to steal something that they have paid for, I just want to share it.
- Would I be able to scan the network with just my laptop or would I need some external device?
Alright that is all and I would appreciate anybody’s help on this, my plane leaves at 11AM tomorrow so the clock is ticking .
Lets get me some free weefee!
