A toolkit to steal browser cookies and reuse them in the attacker's browser for demonstration purposes. Think of it as Firesheep, but as a modern web extension with a server component to be more flexible. The idea is that stealing the cookie (which can be done in various ways) is decoupled from reusing the cookie in the attacker's browser.
This project was developed by Tobias Ospelt (@floyd_ch) of modzero (@mod0).
The basic idea
- Steal cookies and send cookies to server
- Store cookies on server and provide them via JSON interface
- Fetch cookies from server and install them in the attacker's browser
For Step 1 there are various ways to do this:
- Exploit the missing secure flag of the cookie. This toolkit includes a Burp extension that will do this: attack_burp_cookie_missing_secure. This implementation works well when Burp is in transparent proxy mode. It will inject an iframe into every non-encrypted HTTP connection pointing to the vulnerable domain, which will therefore instruct the browser to send the cookie via non-secure HTTP. The same Burp plugin will then find the cookie in the non-encrypted traffic and send it to our server.
- Exploit the missing HttpOnly flag of the cookie. Such an attack is not yet implemented: See folder attack_xss_cookie_missing_httponly
- Exploit a domain hijacking issue to get access to a cookie that is set to the parent domain (eg. Single Sign On cookies). Such an attack is not yet implemented.
Step 2 is called the "loot server": See loot_server_var_www
Step 3 is the browser add-on: See folder browser_addon
- Setup a transparent Burp proxy and install the Burp extension that can be found in the folder attack_burp_cookie_missing_secure. Adjust the options at the beginning of the Burp extension in the file burp_ext_cookie_missing_secure.py.
- Setup a web server and copy the contents of the folder loot_server_var_www in your
/var/www/html/is your web root). Adjust the options at the beginning of the data.php script.
- Setup your browser (Firefox was tested) with the add-on in the directory browser_addon. Adjust the options at the beginning of the panel.js script.
As soon as you connect with your victim browser to any non-TLS HTTP website via the transparent Burp proxy, it will inject an iframe pointing to the attacked domain. Your victim browser will then send the cookie without TLS (as the cookie is missing the secure flag). The Burp plugin will pick up the cookie and send it to our loot server. Open your attacker browser where the browser add-on was installed and click "Refresh from server". The dropdown menu will show the available cookies. Choose one entry to install it in the attacker's browser. The attacker browser can now be used to access the attacked domain with the victim's cookie.
