Kismet works in passive mode, which means it is capable of detecting the presence of both wireless access points and wireless clients without sending any loggable packets. SWScanner SWScanner is specifically designed to make the whole wardriving process a lot easier.
This can be used with or without wireless encryption or the hidden network technique. If a hacker suspects a target network is using MAC address filtering, shed just have to bring up a wireless surveying or analyzer program on her laptop; she could use CommView.
Then just change the values in the examples below to the specific network. Solution Solution Overview The objective is to capture the WPA/WPA2 authentication handshake and then use aircrack-ng to crack the pre-shared key.
Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) and 802.1X. These wont have passphrases or PSKs to crack, but these are susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks. To get started hacking WPA/ WPA2-Enterprise, a hacker would set up a fake AP matching the SSID and security settings of the target network.
Once a hacker opens CommView for. Wi-Fi, she starts capturing on the channel of the hidden network shes targeting. She may see only a blank SSID. However, as soon as someone on the network attempts to connect, the supposedly hidden network name will appear.
This time, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite wireless tools that can be used to hack Wi-Fi password using Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution: Aircrack-ng Aircrack-ng (a fork of aircrack) is my main tool for cracking Wi-Fi passwords.
It should look similar to this: lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wifi0 no wireless extensions. If there are any remaining athX interfaces, then stop each one. When you are finished, run "iwconfig to ensure there are none left.
Assumptions First, this solution assumes: You are using drivers patched for injection. Use the injection test to confirm your card can inject. You are physically close enough to send and receive access point and wireless client packets.
Now, enter the following command to start the wireless card on channel 9 in monitor mode: airmon-ng start wifi0 9 Note: In this command we use "wifi0 instead of our wireless interface of "ath0.
