Imposter v0.9 - Browser Phishing Tool

Imposter is a flexible framework to perform Browser Phishing attacks. Once the system running Imposter is configured as the DNS server to the victims, the internal DNS server of Imposter resolves all DNS queries to itself.

When the victim tries to access any website the domain resolves to the system running Imposter and Imposter’s internal web server serves content to the victim. Depending on the configuration appropriate payloads are sent to the victim. Data stolen from the victim is sent back to Imposter and this is stored in a SQLite database in a folder created with its name based on the date and time of the attack.
