Forum Thread: Wifi Hacking for Passwords

I have today finally successfully cracked a wifi password, and have now access to clients wifi, which as a newbie I'm very excited about!

Goal: get Facebook or hotmail password

The next attempt is to get passwords. Which method would YOU use as the easiest or simplest way? I myself was thinking SSLstrip or dnsspoof, ettercap - it seems like the choices are many!

I do have a Pineapple markV at my disposal.
Let me know which approach you would take :-)

Be advised that this is only for learning and the client is aware of the hacking attempts.

If I wanted to get passwords I would probably use wireshark to monitor their traffic first. I just realized that Phoenix already mentioned it though.

There are some pretty swell tutorials that actually use Wireshark to pull the password.

Thank you, all answers are appreciated, and another person mentioning wireshark just confirms it as a great way to go!

I know imma get a lot of critics for this but pishing annyone??

I'm not entirely sure whether you're asking a question or it's a suggestion, would you care to elaborate?
