A security researcher at the Defcon conference unveiled a new hacking tool that is aimed at the white hat sort that looks to find vulnerabilities that can be patch to make the network or device more secure. Naturally, the app can also be taken advantage of by nefarious sorts that are looking to cause havoc and steal data from unprotected systems and networks. The new app is called the Android Network Toolkit and it will land on the Android Market soon.
The company behind the app is an Israeli security firm called Zimperium. The app has a series of tools that will help the hacker find networks that are unsecure and then find machines on that network that are vulnerable to certain exploits and make executing those exploits as simple as hitting a button. The app is dubbed Anti for short and will be offered free with a $10 corporate upgrade.
