How To Hack WIFI – Complete Guide

A COMPLETE GUIDE

This tutorial will show you how to crack WPA2 and WPA secured wireless networks. Please note that this is not the Reaver attack.

If you want to crack WPA/WPA2 using Reaver then read this post. The process is done by airmon-ng suite. Many steps are same for WEP cracking and WPA/WPA2 as well.

NOTE: This tutorial is for Educational Purposes Only!

What You’ll Need

For this you will require all the basic things like a computer, spare time, etc. But important things are as follows:

  • BackTrack OS. Backtrack is a bootable Linux distribution with lots of pen-testing tools and is almost needed for all my tutorials. So, if you have not installed it please read this article on how to install it.
  • A compatible wireless network adapter. If you are live booting BackTrack then the internal adapter will work but I recommend an external wireless adapter.

Let’s Get Started

Step 1:Boot into BackTrack

You can use any method to boot into backtrack; like from live cd, VMware, dual boot, etc. So, just boot it first into the GUI mode and open up a new console(command line) which is in the taskbar.

Step 2: Gather Information

Before launching the attack you need to know about your wireless network interface name, make your wireless card is in monitor mode. Then get the BSSID ( it is the series of unique letters and number of a particular router) of the access point. So let us do all these things.

First lets find your wireless card. Inside terminal or console, type:

airmon-ng

Press Enter and there you should see a list of interface names of different devices. There should be a wireless device in that list you you have connected it to BackTrack. Probably it may be wlan0 or wlan1.

 

rack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

Enable monitor mode. Supposing your wireless card interface name as wlan0, type this command in that same console.

airmon-ng start wlan0

This code will create a new monitor mode interface mon0 like in the screenshot below which you want to keep note of.

 

rack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

Search the BSSID and channel of the Access Point (router) you want to crack. Now let us find the information. For this type the following and press Enter

airodump-ng mon0

 

rack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

Then you will see a list of Wireless Networks available around you and please keep note of the BSSID and channel of the ESSID (wireless network) you want to crack. Please note that the less the number is in the PWR column the close you are to the router; example mine is (-42) which means i am quite near to the router. When you find it hit CTrl+C to stop it scanning and enter the following:

airodump-ng --bssid (AP BSSID address) -c (chaneel no) -w (file name you want to save with) (monitor interface

So, in my case it will be

airodump-ng --bssid 54:E6:FC:E0:AC:FC -c 1 -w WPAcrack mon0

Then the screen will look like this:

Step 3: Let’s Get Cracking

Now, its time to capture a 4-way handshake so that we can use it to get the plain password of the network. Here is a little tricky part, if there is a client connected to the network then there will a mac address listed in the “station column” like in the screenshot below and if not then you will have to wait for someone to connect it to get 4-way handshake.You will get the handshake if anyone tries to connect to that network.

But, if there is someone is connected on the network then you can deauthenticate him so that he will try to reconnect and you will be able to get the handshake. To deauthenticate him enter the following code in new console. But, before take note of the Mac Address of the station.

aireplay-ng -a (BSSID of the network) -c (MAC address of the client) -0 20 (for deauntheticate "20" for no of packets to send) (monitor interface)

You can send any no of packets but few packets would be enough. In the image I have send 0 packets which is unlimited but it is better you send few packets and only and if you don’t get the handshake you can hit Ctrl+C to stop the process and redo it again.

aireplay-ng -a 54:E6:FC:E0:AC:FC -c 9C:4E:36:4E:F5:F0 -0 20 mon0
hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

Now it will send deauthentication packet and if you are close to the network and if everything goes right then he will get disconnected and will try to connect again and we will get the 4-way handshake file in the top right corner of the airodump screen as shown below. But, the client should also be physically close to your wireless adapter network range so that it can deaunthecate them.

Step 4: Cracking The Password

Now its time to crack the 4-way handshake which is little difficult to do. There are lots of ways to do it but I will show you the simple one.

First let us see where is our saved .cap(4-way handshake) file so please enter the following :

ls

It will show you the list of files in your Desktop. The screen would look like this.

 

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

Now, lets bruteforce the .cap file using aircrack-ng. You will need a Dictionary or word list file to get it work. There are few of them already in the BackTrack but you can download more. Aircrack simply tries to match the word from the dictionary to the .cap file and if matched then it will show the password but if the word is not in the dictionary then it will fail. We are using the darkc0de.lst password list which can be found in “/pentest/passwords/worldlists/darkc0de.lst” of BackTrack. Enter the following command

aircrack-ng -w (location of the password list) (cap file *.cap)

In my case,

aircrack-ng -w /pentest/passwords/worldlists/darkc0de.lst" WPA2crack-01.cap
hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

Depending upon the speed of your CPU and the size of the password file it could take a lot of time. The -01 is automatically added by the BackTrack and everything is case sensitive. After executing this command the screen will look like this.

 

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

If the key is found then it will say, “KEY FOUND!” like in the screenshot below and if not it will say, The pass-phrase is not in the Dictionary or something like this. So, if it is not found then you can try to bruteforce it by trying every combination of word which will take lots of time. I will teach the other methods soon like brute forcing .cap by using Graphics card and so on. So, stay tuned.

hack WPA2 and WPA WiFi password

NOTE: It is not guaranteed that you will get the 4-way handshake. It depends upon various factors. But the main thing is that the physical distance between your wireless adapter, the access point and the client should be close to work for it.

Precautions:

  • Do not put the password that are in the dictionary. Use combination of alphabets, letters and symbols too
  • In your router setting you can hide your ESSID (the name of your wireless network)
  • In your router there will probably be a mac-address filtering service where you can specify the mac addresses that are allowed to connect to your router and no other will be able to connect to it but it is a little irritating if any of your guests wants to connect to your Wifi.

4. Cain & Able

Cain & Able is another popular tool used for cracking wireless network passwords. This tool was developed to intercept the network traffic and then use the brute forcing to discover the passwords. This is why this tool helps a lot while finding the password of wireless network by analyzing the routing protocols. This tool can also be used to crack other kind of passwords. It is one of the most popular password cracking tools.

This tool is not just for WEP cracking but various other features are also there. It is basically used for Windows password cracking. This is the reason this tool is so popular among users.

Download Cain & Able: http://www.oxid.it/cain.html

5. WireShark

WireShark is a very popular tool in networking. It is the network protocol analyzer tool which lets you check different things in your office or home network. You can live capture packets and analyze packets to find various things related to network by checking the data at the micro-level. This tool is available for Windows, Linux, OS X, Solaris, FreeBSD and other platforms.

If you are thinking to try this tool, I recommend you to first read about networking and protocols. WireShark requires good knowledge of network protocols to analyze the data obtained with the tool. If you do not have good knowledge of that, you may not find this tool interesting. So, try only if you are sure about your protocol knowledge.

Wireshark does is one of the most popular tool in networking and this is why it was included in this list in higher position.

6. Fern WiFi Wireless Cracker

Fern WiFi Wireless Cracker is another nice tool which helps with network security. It lets you see real-time network traffic and identify hosts. Basically this tool was developed to find flaws in computer networks and fixes the detected flaws. It is available for Apple, Windows and Linux platforms.

it is able to crack and recover WEP/WPA/WPS keys easily. It can also run other network based attacks on wireless or Ethernet based networks. For cracking WPA/WPA2, it uses WPS based on dictionary based attacks. For WEP cracking, it uses Fragmentation, Chop-Chop, Caffe-Latte, Hirte, ARP Request Replay or WPS attack.

This tool is in active development. SO, you can expect timely update with new features. Pro version of the tool is also available which offers much features.

Download Fern WiFi Wireless cracker: http://www.fern-pro.com/downloads.php

7. CoWPAtty

CoWPAtty is another nice wireless password cracking tool. It is an automated dictionary attack tool for WPA-PSK to crack the passwords. It runs on Linux OS and offers a less interesting command line interface to work with. It runs on a word-list containing thousands of password to use in the attack. If the password is in the password’s word-list, this tool will surely crack the password. But this tool is slow and speed depends on the word list and password’s strength. Another reason for slow process is that the hash uses SHA1 with a seed of SSID. It means the same password will have a different SSIM. So, you cannot simply use the rainbow table against all access points. So, the tool uses the password dictionary and generates the hash for each word contained in the dictionary by using the SSID. This tool is simple to use with available commands.

With the newer version of the tool CoWPAtty tried to improve the speed by using a pre-computed hash file to avoid the computation at the time of cracking. This pre-computed file contains around 172000 dictionary file for around 1000 most popular SSIDs. But for successful attack, your SSID must be in that list. If your SSID is not in those 1000, you are unlucky. Still, you can try this tool to see how it works.

Download CoWPAtty: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cowpatty/

8. Airjack

Airjack is a Wi-Fi 802.11 packet injection tool. It is used to perform DOS attack and MIM attack. This wireless cracking tool is very useful in injecting forged packets and making a network down by denial of service attack. This tool can also be used for a man in the middle attack in the network. This tool is popular and powerful both.

9. WepAttack

WepAttack is another working open source Linux tool for breaking 802.11 WEP keys. Like few other tools in the list, this tool also performs an active dictionary attack. It tests millions of words from its dictionary to find the working key for the network. Only a working WLAN card is required to work with WepAttack to perform the attack. Limited usability but works awesome on supported WLAN cards.

Download WepAttack: http://wepattack.sourceforge.net/

10. NetStumbler

NetStumbler is another wireless password cracking tool available only for Windows platform. It helps in finding open wireless access points. This tool is freely available. Basically NetStumbler is used for wardriving, verifying network configurations, finding locations with a poor network, detecting unauthorized access points, and more.

This tool is not very effective now. Main reason is that last stable release of the tool was back in April 2004 around 11 years ago. So, it does not work with 64-bit Windows OS. It can also be easily detected with most of the wireless intrusion detection systems available. So, you can use this tool for learning purpose on home network to see how it works.

A trimmed down version dubbed as ‘MiniStumbler’ of the tool is also available. This tool is too old but it still works fine on supported systems. So, I included it in this list.

Wifi adapter packet injection test

[ad_1]

Questions about if a certain Wifi adapter is compatible with the Aircrack-ng suite or what Wifi card is able of packet injection and operating monitoring mode are normally requested at discussion boards and social media. A Wifi adapter that is able of packet injection and checking mode is trivial and vital performance to be productive in Wifi hacking. Wi-fi packet injection is spoofing packets on a community to show up as if they are element of the frequent community conversation stream. Packet injection enables to intercept, disrupt and manipulate community conversation. An instance of this is sending a deauthentication message from an unknown party outside the house the network to a linked shopper as if it was send out by the wireless router. This will consequence in the shopper disconnecting from the router. Monitoring mode is a single of the six modes a Wifi card can work in which enables you to seize community packets devoid of possessing to associate with the access point.

If you are looking to buy a Wifi card which is able of packet injection working with the Aircrack-NG suite you can have a seem at the following listing with supported Wifi adapters:

Wifi adapter packet injection examination

Accomplishing an Wifi adapter packet injection examination to see no matter if your Wifi adapter is able of injection can be finished quickly with Aireplay-ng. Aireplay-ng is excellent instrument to create site visitors for cracking WEP and WPA keys. One more excellent aspect is the Deauthentication solution which we have utilized a large amount via the Wifi hacking tutorials like:

Initial we will need to set the Wifi adapter in Monitoring mode working with the following command:

airmon-ng start off wlan0

WireShark is a very popular tool in networking. It is the network protocol analyzer tool which lets you check different things in your office or home network. You can live capture packets and analyze packets to find various things related to network by checking the data at the micro-level. This tool is available for Windows, Linux, OS X, Solaris, FreeBSD and other platforms.

If you are thinking to try this tool, I recommend you to first read about networking and protocols. WireShark requires good knowledge of network protocols to analyze the data obtained with the tool. If you do not have good knowledge of that, you may not find this tool interesting. So, try only if you are sure about your protocol knowledge.

Wireshark does is one of the most popular tool in networking and this is why it was included in this list in higher position.

6. Fern WiFi Wireless Cracker

Fern WiFi Wireless Cracker is another nice tool which helps with network security. It lets you see real-time network traffic and identify hosts. Basically this tool was developed to find flaws in computer networks and fixes the detected flaws. It is available for Apple, Windows and Linux platforms.

it is able to crack and recover WEP/WPA/WPS keys easily. It can also run other network based attacks on wireless or Ethernet based networks. For cracking WPA/WPA2, it uses WPS based on dictionary based attacks. For WEP cracking, it uses Fragmentation, Chop-Chop, Caffe-Latte, Hirte, ARP Request Replay or WPS attack.

This tool is in active development. SO, you can expect timely update with new features. Pro version of the tool is also available which offers much features.

7. CoWPAtty

CoWPAtty is another nice wireless password cracking tool. It is an automated dictionary attack tool for WPA-PSK to crack the passwords. It runs on Linux OS and offers a less interesting command line interface to work with. It runs on a word-list containing thousands of password to use in the attack. If the password is in the password’s word-list, this tool will surely crack the password. But this tool is slow and speed depends on the word list and password’s strength. Another reason for slow process is that the hash uses SHA1 with a seed of SSID. It means the same password will have a different SSIM. So, you cannot simply use the rainbow table against all access points. So, the tool uses the password dictionary and generates the hash for each word contained in the dictionary by using the SSID. This tool is simple to use with available commands.

With the newer version of the tool CoWPAtty tried to improve the speed by using a pre-computed hash file to avoid the computation at the time of cracking. This pre-computed file contains around 172000 dictionary file for around 1000 most popular SSIDs. But for successful attack, your SSID must be in that list. If your SSID is not in those 1000, you are unlucky. Still, you can try this tool to see how it works.

9. WepAttack

WepAttack is another working open source Linux tool for breaking 802.11 WEP keys. Like few other tools in the list, this tool also performs an active dictionary attack. It tests millions of words from its dictionary to find the working key for the network. Only a working WLAN card is required to work with WepAttack to perform the attack. Limited usability but works awesome on supported WLAN cards.

10. NetStumbler

NetStumbler is another wireless password cracking tool available only for Windows platform. It helps in finding open wireless access points. This tool is freely available. Basically NetStumbler is used for wardriving, verifying network configurations, finding locations with a poor network, detecting unauthorized access points, and more.

This tool is not very effective now. Main reason is that last stable release of the tool was back in April 2004 around 11 years ago. So, it does not work with 64-bit Windows OS. It can also be easily detected with most of the wireless intrusion detection systems available. So, you can use this tool for learning purpose on home network to see how it works.

A trimmed down version dubbed as ‘MiniStumbler’ of the tool is also available. This tool is too old but it still works fine on supported systems. So, I included it in this list.

Wifi adapter packet injection test

[ad_1]

Questions about if a certain Wifi adapter is compatible with the Aircrack-ng suite or what Wifi card is able of packet injection and operating monitoring mode are normally requested at discussion boards and social media. A Wifi adapter that is able of packet injection and checking mode is trivial and vital performance to be productive in Wifi hacking. Wi-fi packet injection is spoofing packets on a community to show up as if they are element of the frequent community conversation stream. Packet injection enables to intercept, disrupt and manipulate community conversation. An instance of this is sending a deauthentication message from an unknown party outside the house the network to a linked shopper as if it was send out by the wireless router. This will consequence in the shopper disconnecting from the router. Monitoring mode is a single of the six modes a Wifi card can work in which enables you to seize community packets devoid of possessing to associate with the access point.

If you are looking to buy a Wifi card which is able of packet injection working with the Aircrack-NG suite you can have a seem at the following listing with supported Wifi adapters:
