Presentation Title: MoocherHunting: Real-Time Geo-Location of Moochers, Hackers and Unauthorized WiFi Users
Presentation Abstract:

With wireless networking so prevalent in modern societies, the ability of a person to tap into someone elses’ wireless network and use their internet connection for mischief is cause for concern. Terrorist communications, illegal file sharing, illegal software (warez) downloading, pornography trafficking - the list is growing larger and larger every day. Typically, getting the internet IP address of the exploited user’s wireless network gateway is the easy part - but how do you isolate, identify and track down where the moocher, hacker or unauthorized WiFi user is physically located in a high-density urban environment?

This presentation and practical demonstration will unveil MoocherHunter, our new free tool which we’ll be making available for free end-user use that law enforcement and other authorized parties can use to isolate and hunt down wireless perpetrators in real time, on-the-fly. MoocherHunter was first previewed and well-received at a closed-door, non-public session to Law Enforcement officials from ASEANOPOL,INTERPOL and S.E. Asian Police Forces in the Singapore Police Force-organized CyberCrime Investigation workshop (CCIW) 2008 held in April 2008.
