WifiZoo v1.2 – Gather Wifi Information Passively

WifiZoo is a tool to gather wifi information passively. Similar to dsniff but for wireless work, the author wanted to do something wifi-related somewhat helpful in wifi pentesting. Something of an extension of Ferret from Errata. It’s essentially a tool to get information from open wifi networks without joining any network, and covering all wifi […]

aircrack-ng – WEP and WPA-PSK Key Cracking Program

aircrack is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools. In fact, aircrack is a set of tools for […]

aircrack-ptw – Fast WEP Cracking Tool for Wireless Hacking

WEP is a protocol for securing wireless LANs. WEP stands for “Wired Equivalent Privacy” which means it should provide the level of protection a wired LAN has. WEP therefore uses the RC4 stream to encrypt data which is transmitted over the air, using usually a single secret key (called the root key or WEP key) […]

LORCON (Loss Of Radio CONnectivity) 802.11 Packet Library

The LORCON packet injection library provides a high level interface to transmit IEEE 802.11 packets onto a wireless medium. Written for Linux systems, this architecture simplifies the development of 802.11 packet injection through an abstraction layer, making the development of auditing and assessment tools driver- independent. Using LORCON, developers can write tools that inject packets […]

Michigan Man Fined $400 for Using Coffee Shop’s Wi-Fi Network

Well this is a harsh turn of events, a while back an ‘ethics expert’ said Wifi Jacking is OK, now this poor guy has got pretty harshly screwed for using an open wireless connection from a nearby coffeeshop. A Michigan man has been fined $400 and given 40 hours of community service for accessing an […]

Wep0ff – Wireless WEP Key Cracker Tool

Wep0ff is new tool to crack WEP-key without access to AP by mount fake access point attack against WEP-based wireless clients. It uses combination of fragmentation and evil twin attacks to generate traffic which can be used for KoreK-style WEP-key recovery. This tool can be used to mount fake access point attack against WEP-based wireless […]

California Passes Wi-Fi Security Guidance Law – War-Driving going down?

It seems like war-driving may become a thing of the past, legislation is starting to happen. It’s a good start though, you have to target the manufacturers to educate their users, not target the users as they don’t care, sometimes ease of use has to be traded a bit with security. California legislators have passed […]

Super Mega Wi-Fi Hacking Machine – Janus Project

Apart from the fact Janus is almost like Anus this is a very cool project. Seriously this is really geeky stuff, but super cool. If you think seeing a dozen wireless networks makes your computer the ultimate scanning box, think again. A small security firm has made a portable computer that is capable of scanning […]

Researchers hack Wi-Fi driver to breach laptop

Ah another way to exploit wifi, what a surprise! Security researchers have found a way to seize control of a laptop computer by manipulating buggy code in the system’s wireless device driver. The hack will be demonstrated at the upcoming Black Hat USA 2006 conference during a presentation by David Maynor, a research engineer with […]
