    Hi,

    I have used the Achilles proxy server security tool and found it is
    very effective in modifying the HTTP requests and repsonses between the
    client and server on the fly thus acting as a middle-man-attacker. I
    have tested it on a test machine and configured my I.E. to use the port
    the proxy server (Achilles) listens to. I found that my webapp is
    susceptible to this kind of an attack, but my question is how can this
    be exploited on an external network since I.E. will require manual
    config for use of such a proxy server. Is there some other tool
    available, something like a [sniffer+request modifier], which can be
    deployed on any network or remotely and needs no manual config of the
    browser? Somehting which the end user will be completely unaware of if
    used?

    Thanks!
