Seeker Hosts a fake website on Apache Server and uses Ngrok to generate a SSL link which asks for Location Permission and if the user allows it, we can get :
- Altitude - Not always available
- Direction - Only available if user is moving
- Speed - Only available if user is moving
Along with Location Information we can also get Device Information without any permissions :
- Operating System
- Number of CPU Cores
- Amount of RAM - Approximate Results
- Screen Resolution
- GPU information
- Browser Name and Version
- Public IP Address
This tool is purely a Proof of Concept and is for Educational Purposes Only, Seeker shows what data a malicious website can gather about you and your devices and why you should not click on random links and allow critical permissions such as Location etc.
Other tools and services offer IP Geolocation which is not very accurate and does not give location of user.
Generally if a user accepts location permsission, Accuracy of the information recieved is accurate to approximately 30 meters.
Note : On iPhone due to some reason location accuracy is approximately 65 meters.
Tested On :
- Kali Linux 2018.2
- Ubuntu 18.04
Supports both Python2 and Python3.
Seeker uses common standard python modules :
git clone https://github.com/thewhiteh4t/seeker.git cd seeker/ chmod 777 install.sh ./install.sh #After Installation just type seeker in console
