The Hak5 Plunder Bug is a compact, advanced LAN/Ethernet Tap that functions as a mini-switch, allowing for passive monitoring and active engagement via its USB-C port.

Bundled with an Android Root App that enabled packet-capture from your handset, and all necessary cross-platform connection scripts.

Functionality at a glance

The Plunder Bug is designed for System Administrators and Penetration Testers, providing previously impossible functionality from an ethernet tapping device.

In Passive Mode, network traffic can be sniffed, collected and analysed using tools such as WireShark. Combined with tools like pcapfex - automatically dump files recovered from sniffed data.

In Active Mode, the Plunder Bug acts as an unmanaged switch, essentially injecting your device into the network - allowing for standard network analysis and infiltration.

And, for those emergency situations where you need to get jacked into a network - it can even act as a simple USB-C to Ethernet Adaptor.
