Wi-Fi Hacking using Evil Twin Attacks and Captive Portals! [Part 1]

Now let’s see the anatomy of the evil twin attack.

So, first off, the attacker scans the air for the target access point information like SS I.D. name channel number and MAC address.

Okay. Now let’s learn about captive portals which are often used in evil twin attacks.

So, a captive portal is a web page that is displayed to newly connected users over a Wi-Fi network. Captive portals are used by business centers, airports, coffee shops and other places that offer free Wi-Fi for Internet users. Users can freely connect to these networks and they will often be directed to a logging page where a password is required before accessing the Internet.
