NetCut is a software which enables a network admin to turn off the internet connection of any machine in a LAN.
Any takers ?
I’d guess it’s using ARP Spoofing. It won’t just limit internet traffic, but all traffic trying to get to that machine. Also, there’s a requirement that both machines need to be the same broadcast domain. It’s really a broken way to limit internet access, though. If you want do to this the right way, do it at the firewall and/or proxy level.
Additionally, if you really want to figure out what it’s doing, just fire up Wireshark, and do a packet capture while you’re running the software.
