A Wi-Fi Wardriving Motorbike — With Plans Available 36 36

mask.of.sanity writes "This custom Yamaha TRX 850 has been outfitted with wireless sniffing and attack tools, routers, a laptop, Raspberry Pi and even a heads up display integrated within the bike helmet. It was built from open source kit and cheap hardware by a security penetration tester who wanted to make his love of wardriving more nimble. The plans are detailed in a diagram and a video."

    Wireless (cellular) still costs money, and ties your p0rn downloads to you. Sneaking onto some unsuspecting dope's unprotected wifi is much easier.

    Still, the story seems a little odd. Penetration tools on a motorbike make no sense. Even at a walking pace, you are out of range before you can penetrate any other station on the network. On an idling bike, you would certainly arose suspicion.

    The best you can determine is if it is open or not on a drive by.
    But you can do that with any cell phone and Any of several Wardriving tools [google.com].

It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
