Anti Android App Makes Hacking Push Button Simple

There are many people out there that like to call themselves hackers, but only use software to take advantage of out of date security written by other people. A new tool is coming to Android smartphones soon via the Android Market that will certainly be appealing to nefarious sorts without the skills to create their own exploits. The new tool is called Anti or Android Network Toolkit.

The new app runs on an Android smartphone and offers several automated tools to carry out hacking tasks on wireless networks that aren't secure. The tool will find the unsecure networks, locate systems on the network, and then find those systems that are running out of date software and are vulnerable to attack.

Once the systems that are vulnerable are located, the app lets the user hit an icon for making an attack like man-in-the-middle and other attacks. The designer of the app is Itzhak Avraham, the founder of an Israeli security firm called Zimperium. The terms and conditions will say the app is for white hat vulnerability location only not for nefarious attacks. I am sure hackers will abide those terms when they download the free app.
