A brand new Android app is to offer smartphone users easy access to hack into computer networks. Named The Android Network Toolkit or Anti for short, the potentially harmful app was revealed at the DefCon hacking conference by Itzhak “Zuk” Avraham.

The app works via a wi-fi scanning tool which seeks out open networks and shows all potential target devices on those networks. Android owners can then run commands like “Man-In-The-Middle” to eavesdrop on local devices, or even “Attack” to exploit vulnerabilities in out-of-date software.

Forbes’ Andy Greenberg, who watched the conniving app in action, reports its creators have urged users to employ it for benign white hat hacking only. The app’s accompanying documentation states, “Hacking is not for the chosen few. Anti is your perfect mobile companion, doing it all for you. Please remember, with great power comes great responsibility. Use it wisely.”

Whether or not such calls are heeded, the Anti app is expected to hit the Android Market imminently for free download.
