WPAD.dat File Server

This module generates a valid wpad.dat file for WPAD mitm attacks. Usually this module is used in combination with DNS attacks or the 'NetBIOS Name Service Spoofer' module. Please remember as the server will be running by default on TCP port 80 you will need the required privileges to open that port.
