reaver-wps

What is it? well, it's an wpa/wpa2 cracker. it's useful if you want to test YOUR router security.
How it works? well it uses an "exploit" found by a guy on the wps system. It's well explained here http://sviehb.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/viehboeck_wps.pdf
I tried it on my router and it took 14 hours (exactly 51000 secs) to crack it. why it takes so much time? well it started from a really low pin.
how to get it working?
it's really easy: Open a terminal and run as root: airmon-ng start wlan0 Then it will enable monitor mode on that wireless device (wlan0) Now you need to find the mac of your router, how? always as root run: airodump-ng mon0 This command will show you all the wireless devices on near you. you need to take the mac of YOUR router and then run this (again, always as root): reaver -i mon0 -b 00:01:02:03:04:05 -vv it will start to crack the key.
to test this tool i used ubuntu 10.04 with a wireless device that use ath5k driver
if you want more performance…
