T-Mobile Transportation Insecurity
You may know that T Mobile offers free WiFi in Dutch public transport, I discussed the insecurity previously. Here a security researcher saw whether he would be able to fool travelers into using his AP over the one offered in the train… It worked… sigh

I previously discussed T-Mobile here

I just pulled off a phishing operation in the dutch trains; I have linux installed on my tablet and I had my WiFi broadcast itself as AP with SSID “tmobilefast”. In linux I had a squid and a dns server with some entries ‘poisoned’ so I could fake the SSL keys (self-signed, mind you). My mobile phone tethered it to the HDSPA.

Within 10 minutes I was watching as facebook, gmail and a companies webmail passing through my squid…

This tells me that people are ripe for the plucking in public transport…
