Seeker - Find Geolocation with High Accuracy

Introduction

Concept behind Seeker is simple, just like we host phishing pages to get credentials why not host a fake page that requests your loction just like many popular location based websites. Seeker Hosts a fake website on In Built PHP Server and uses Ngrok, website asks for Location Permission and if the user allows it, we can get :

  • Longitude
  • Latitude
  • Accuracy
  • Altitude - Not always available
  • Direction - Only available if user is moving
  • Speed - Only available if user is moving

Along with Location Information we also get Device Information without any permissions :

  • Operating System
  • Platform
  • Number of CPU Cores
  • Amount of RAM - Approximate Results
  • Screen Resolution
  • GPU information
  • Browser Name and Version
  • Public IP Address

This tool is a Proof of Concept and is for Educational Purposes Only, Seeker shows what data a malicious website can gather about you and your devices and why you should not click on random links and allow critical permissions such as Location etc.

  • Other tools and services offer IP Geolocation which is not very accurate and does not give location of user.
  • Generally if a user accepts location permsission, Accuracy of the information recieved is **accurate to approximately 30 meters**.
