fun and profit with Wlan traffic modifications

i was doing a little cleaning in my bookmarks when i stumbled upon a airpwn ( which is able to exchange data in surrounding wlan traffic with you own.

the creators used it to goatse everyone in defcon (i would have chosen more sensitive subjects than sex hungry nerds, like you know, anybody else), but the fact that you can basically inject *anything* lead me to the following questions.

as i know pretty much nothing on javascript beside the basic coding, i decided to get those-who-knows ®©™ (you) on the matter. let's say somebody is surfin' like hell on the interweb, and that, by pure chance, a computer with airpwn happens to inserts into the pages his visiting, could it get XHR to a distant host while not breaking the sandbox/samedomain rule ?

Sorta - you are still bound to the same origin policy, however there are some tricks.

If someone goes to but I'm really after some sensitive info on I can, instead of letting them see, I can show them something else and deliver with an iframe pointing to Now, I own because I'm a MITM and now I can inject my own JS on that site.

The beauty here is that lots of people think "Wow - SSL, I'm safe" well, that's only true if you're already in an SSL session. Because most people go to http before their browser is redirected to https and because I am a man in the middle, I don't have to let them redirect. That's less useful than it sounds because cookies don't work from protocol to protocol, but it's great for MITM phishing. Remember too, you can also take over their https service if you aren't afraid of giving them a little warning message. Most people ignore it anyway.

I should also point out that Dave Maynor and Rob Thomas and I have been working on this concept for some time regarding ferrit. They are doing most of the work - I'm just the coach on the sideline telling them how cool it would be to beef up airpwn for this purpose. No ETA on the version that would do this, but I haven't talked to them in a while about this (since Blackhat actually).

Yes, sort of. You can actually try the combination ARP and DNS spoofing+netsed+iptables packet matching on WiFi networks.
