  • Updated the Wireless Access Point Attack to choose the monitor interface that is most recently created
  • Changed the menu output, this is the first of many changes on how the menu interacts
  • Added an X10 Sniffer into the Arduino based attack vectors
  • Added an X10 Jammer into the Arduino based attack vectors
  • Changed the menu option to reflect Arduino based attack vector versus Teensy
  • Added a starttls check for authentication around sendmail
  • Fixed a bug in mass mailer that would cause gmail to be set versus smtp relay
  • Added the SD2Teensy OSX attack vector which targets OSX machines by dumping from the converts.txt storage drive on the teensy
