How to see who is stealing your WIFI?

 

 

Without adequate security, your neighbors and other strangers can steal your Wi-Fi and lurking on your internet service for free, but also the freeloaders might also have access to shared folders and other resources on your network.

 

If you suspect that someone is stealing your Wi-Fi, you need to log in to your router’s administration page to check first.

 

First of all, gather details about the device.

 

1. Check your router for attached devices:

2.Use PingTestEasy to discover devices on your network.

Note down the IP address of the device.

 

Next, you can either capture packets directly using Wire Shark, or further analyze the device for known vulnerabilities and open ports using Nmap.

 

Open NMap and scan the IP for open ports and OS info.

Once the scan completes, look out for open ports and OS details.

You’ll also be able to see the services that are using specific ports: one way to see the what purpose a particular device is serving on the network.

 

Next, you can launch a packet capture to analyze the traffic between the node and the router:

Select a protocol (say http) and choose a packet at random:

Right click on the packet and choose Follow TCP Stream.

 

Here’s what the device was accessing:

 

 

Packet header and content in separate blocks. Note that the host is mentioned in the header. (WireShark)

 

Similarly, you can analyze ICPM/SSH/SSDP/DLNA/Etc. packets and see what the device is doing on the network.

 

 

Likewise, you can easily harvest login credentials sent in plain text:

 

 

Harvesting router web-config credentials using WireShark packet capture.

 

Things can get trickier and interesting if there’s an SSL site involved. You’ll need to launch a man-in-middle attack using something like MetaSploit, or install payloads on the client through webscripts deployed using DNS manipulation.

 

Other than that, you can impose a transparent proxy on your network and monitor activities from there. Also, you can log connection history using a pfSense box.

 

Most of this comes under softcore hacking. Hacking, however, is illegal, under any pretext whatsoever. You can get sued if there’s a security breach/identity theft/phishing attack on the network just because you previously tried to do the same. Your computer can be stripped for evidences. Likely is that you’ll get into trouble. Now that you know this stuff doesn’t mean that you should immediately test it out, and that too on a third person.

 

Disclaimer: I’m in no way endorsing hacking/spoofing.

 

If you do find an unauthorized device on your home network, Select the entry for that device on your internet router. You should see the option to block the device.
