Man-in-the-Middle attack with Interceptor

The good folks over at Hak5.org did a little diddy on a network monitor that can be placed on the wired side of the network instead of collecting just wireless packets.  Interceptor is a network tap for the wired LAN that can collect packets, so you can come back later and analyze.  It also gives you the ability to run a wireless access point on the backside and create your own VPN tunnel from the outside, where you can be sitting in a van checking out what is happening on the network.

You can read more about Interceptor at DigiNinja.org.  Give it a look, you might find something interesting.  Thanks to Hak5.org for pointing this out to me, and a special thanks to Robin Wood for creating such a great tool!
