Cookie Cadger helps identify information leakage from applications that utilize insecure HTTP GET requests. Web providers have started stepping up to the plate since Firesheep was released in 2010. Today, most major websites can provide SSL/TLS during all transactions, preventing cookie data from leaking over wired Ethernet or insecure Wi-Fi.
But the fact remains that Firesheep was more of a toy than a tool. Cookie Cadger is the first open-source pen-testing tool ever made for intercepting and replaying specific insecure HTTP GET requests into a browser.
Cookie Cadger is a graphical utility that harnesses the power of the Wireshark suite and Java to provide a fully cross-platform, entirely open-source utility that can monitor wired Ethernet, insecure Wi-Fi, or load a packet capture file for offline analysis. The utility was released to the world on Sunday, September 30th during Matthew Sullivan’s Derbycon talk. Source code release will follow soon.
