In theory you're able to make a program that listans after a

the real DNS and tries to give the client an other ip-address than
the real one... Does anyone know of such a program?

I succeeded to get people to use SSH instead of telnet after
showing them what I could do with Hunt.

wait a bit for the next release of dsniff, which includes

        forge replies to arbitrary DNS address / pointer queries on
        the LAN. this is useful in bypassing hostname-based access
        controls, or in implementing a variety of man-in-the-middle
        attacks (HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, Kerberos, etc).

        proxy and sniff SSH traffic redirected by dnsspoof(8),
      capturing SSH password logins.

Won't the user get a warning about host not matching the key in known_hosts?

        proxy and sniff HTTP / HTTPS traffic redirected by dnsspoof(8),
        capturing most "secure" SSL-encrypted webmail logins and form

Won't the browser pop up an error about the certificate not matching the
site?  Or not signed by a known CA?

among other things...

Cool, what else?
