Imagine a device that, with the push of a button, automatically scans for
wireless networks, connects to them, and then attacks each and every device on
the network. Sound like something out of Hollywood? Well, the device is real,
and for $3600 you too can own one — and then own everyone.
The device, formally known as the SILICA, was created by Immunity to assist
penetration testers with their work. It officially hit the shelves in February
2007, but has been making some headlines over the last year as Immunity
demonstrated it at various conferences. Thankfully, White Wolf Security was
gracious enough to let us borrow theirs and give it a whirl. Quite honestly, we
were expecting to be a bit disappointed because media hype is usually
exaggerated. However, not only were we dead wrong about that assumption, but we
will go so far as to highly recommend this device to anyone interested in
penetration testing from the palm of your hand.
