Ettercap: Ettercap is a free and open source network security tool for man-in-the-middle attacks on LAN.
Would-be miscreants who want to utilize the technique can now simply buy the components "off the shelf' to carry out such an attack by employing ready-made toolkits like Ettercap, dsniff, and Mallory (a creative use of the classic MitM character's name).
