To do this, you’ll need a wired or wireless security camera connected to your network to experiment on, as well as a “victim” computer watching the camera feed in a browser window. I hope you enjoyed this guide to using the Hak5 Plunder Bug to intercept webcam images. In the Wireshark main view, type http into the display filter bar. For example, if you want to navigate to port on You can pick up a Plunder Bug from Hak5’s shop and check out the official documentation for more details on setting active and passive modes of the device. Limitations of Wi-Fi While Wi-Fi allows us to see everything that is happening on a network, there are some downsides as well. Click “Close,” and then navigate to the folder you exported the images to.

First, someone must be on the network to kick off, and second, we have to know the password to put everything together.
This will be more or less depending on how long you ran the capture for. Many IoT devices use weak security because they assume these devices will live inside Wi-Fi networks with strong passwords. This will only allow HTTP traffic being sent to the computer we’re monitoring to be displayed, filtering our view even further until we’re only looking at the traffic to our insecure web app.
This is just the ham5 of what you can do with this awesome Hak5 tool.
If you don’t have Ethernet cables lying around, you’ll also need a length of Ethernet cable to slip the Plunder Bug in between the target’s Ethernet connection and the router. Share Your Thoughts Click to share your thoughts. To start, you’ll need to access the built-in interface on whatever webcam, IP security camera, or DVR system you want to intercept images from.
Once we have all of this information, intercepting the images is easy.

The whole thing easily slips between where a router and Ethernet cable iphonw, giving you access to any unencrypted traffic flowing inside. Now comes the easy part.
For example, if you want to navigate to port on Start Iphonw by selecting it from the drop-down menu of applications in Kali or via a quick search. Click “Close,” and then navigate to the folder you exported the images to. Unless your computer lacks an Ethernet port, eth0 is usually your internal adapter.
When you find a device on the network with a port open, you can navigate to it by typing the IP address and then the port number in a browser window.

Here we can see the JPEG images we want to decode. In this guide, we’ll be trying to grab images from a security camera connected to a local network that someone is displaying on a monitor. That means two big conditions must be met in order for the Wi-Fi version of this to work. Our goal will be to sniff the traffic from the insecure webpage on the device to see if we can pull images out of the traffic we intercept, allowing us to “see” what the receiver sees. If you don’t know the password, you can always get physical with the Hak5 Plunder Bug.
You can find this by typing ifconfig and copying down the IP address assigned to your computer. Next, select the interface we found before, in my case, eth1. Now, unplug the Ethernet cable of whatever device you want to monitor from the router, and plug a length of Ethernet cable both into the router and one side of the Plunder Bug. Put simply, if you tap the wrong Ethernet cable, you’ll be watching the wrong computer, because Ethernet only sends the data we’re looking for over the cable directly connecting the router to the computer the target is viewing the camera on.
You can select one or all of them, and then click “Save” or “Save All” and pick a location to export the files to. You should see a list of files that Wireshark exported from our capture. In the Wireshark main view, type http into the display filter bar. We’d also need to kick off the device we were looking to snoop on momentarily, so we could listen in when the device and Wi-Fi router negotiate the keys for their connection.
Now that we know the name of the adapter, in this case, eth1we can start Wireshark and start monitoring traffic flowing across this interface. More advanced IoT devices using HTTPS are safe from these attacks thanks to their traffic being encrypted end to end, but critical details like HTTPS security are frequently overlooked when connected devices are designed.
In a browser window on your “target” computer, navigate to the HTTP interface, enter any password required, and then begin viewing the live webcam view. To cut through the data, we’ll add another network filter to show only HTTP traffic flowing on the network.
While we’ve gained access to the network traffic and narrowed it down to the target computer, there may be other traffic that’s unrelated to the images we’re trying to capture and makes it difficult to focus on what we’re looking for. A flood of packets should start to fill up the window. Then, insert the Ethernet cable leading to the target into the remaining slot on the Plunder Bug.
