I decided to spend some of my holiday vacation playing with my Pineapple Nano setup, un-boxing, and initial configuration.
This was the WiFi Pineapple that I won at BSides Raleigh 2016, so I finally playing with it was exciting.
Once I got it out of the box, it was a pretty neat looking device.
Next, I attached both included antennas to the device.
With everything plugged in, I connected the Nano to my laptop.
I wasn't actually able to get enough power from the single USB connector, so I had to plug the device in directly.
Once the device was properly connected, Windows detected it.
The first thing I did was update the firmware.
Once that was complete, I was able to reach the device.
First, I shared my internet connection with anyone connecting through the Pineapple.
After that was ready, I went to the device's UI and verified that it was running.
I also modified my PineAP settings, so that it would allow and log associations.
As a final test of the device, I ran a quick Occupineapple.
This test would run through all the possible APs in its dictionary, and send out a beacon as that SSID. It will not respond to requests or allow connections, but it was a good test of the device and its functionality.
To verify, I checked my Android device and saw the SSIDs being broadcast!
Next I'd like to blog about some Evil Twin and/or Karma attacks, so stay tuned!
Additionally, I may have an even higher powered option in the works.
