WifiZoo v1.2 – Gather Wifi Information Passively

Keep on Guard!

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 channels. Most of the packet parsing is done by Scapy.

WifiZoo does the following:

  • Gathers bssid->ssid information from beacons and probe responses
  • Gathers list of unique SSIDS found on probe requests
  • Gathers the list and graphs which SSIDS are being probed from what sources
  • Gathers bssid->clients information and outputs it in a file
  • Gathers ‘useful’ information from unencrypted wifi traffic (like passwords/credentials etc)


  • Python
  • Scapy
  • Kismet (if you want to do channel hopping)
  • Logs are stored in ./logs/ (so make the directory)

You can download WifiZoo here:

    A very nice addition to the wireless tool set indeed.
    Works quite well in our secured environment, at home I honestly do not need to bother. A multitude of open access points simply because users where never told about the options to secure their wireless gear.

    I was about to ask what this tool had over the aircrack-ng suite of applications until I saw the passwords/credential gathering feature. You really have to feel for people still running unencrypted wireless points!

    this will be a nice complement to other tools. it’ll be interesting just to see how many passwords can be snooped.

    It would be even nicer if it could automatically crack WEP and WPA, but I understand that that’s in the works.

    I particulary like the ability to make a graph of the network. That could prove to be a very usefull feature.

    Keep up te good work!

    The web interface is a nice feature.

    I have been looking at scapy for a little while now to assist me in developing a hacktool in Python. Scapy is brilliant in its construction and function. This tool, however, looks like it would be pretty useful while mapping APs.
