Submission + - WiFi Pineapple Hacking Device Sells Out at DEF CON (eweek.com)

darthcamaro writes: At the recent DEF CON conference over the weekend, vendor were selling all kinds of gear. But one device stood out from all the others, the WiFi Pineapple — an all in one WiFi hacking device that costs only $80 (a lot cheaper than a PwnPlug) and powered by a very vibrant open source community of users. Pineapple creator Darren Kitchen said that 1.2 Pineapple's per minute were sold on the first day of DEF CON (and then sold out). The Pineapple run it's own Linux, based on OpenWRT, is packed with open source tools including Karma, DNS Spoof, SSL Strip, URL Snarf, Ngrep and more and is powered by g a 400MHz Atheros AR9331 MIPS processor, 32MB of main memory and a complete 802.11 b/g/n stack.
Is this a tool that will be used for good — or for evil?
