Raspberry Pi as a network hacking tool...

Interesting article from Techradar.

Another situation where Linux scores high!
The attack works against both Windows and Mac computers (whether locked or unlocked), but researchers couldn’t pull it off with a Linux computer.
Play Bonny!

But Linux cant stop a PlugBot (Raspberry Pie) which is much easier to pull off as you just plug it in an outlet and then it intercepts data as it transmits through the wire, or air (even fiber can be tapped albeit more difficult)..
