How Evil Twin Hacks Work


How "Evil Twin" Hacks Work

In an Evil Twin hack, a hacker creates a twin of an existing hot spot, to lure people into logging into his hot spot rather than the real thing. First a hacker finds a popular hot spot and finds its SSIDits network name. Next, he sets up a duplicate hot spot that has the same SSID as the real thing. He may use a small, hidden portable travel router to do this.
