Update Wifite : An automated wireless attack tool.

Changes 06-08-2014 : Formatting changes
To attack multiple WEP, WPA, and WPS encrypted networks in a row. This tool is customizable to be automated with only a few arguments. Wifite aims to be the “set it and forget it” wireless auditing tool.

Features

  • sorts targets by signal strength (in dB); cracks closest access points first
  • automatically de-authenticates clients of hidden networks to reveal SSIDs
  • numerous filters to specify exactly what to attack (wep/wpa/both, above certain signal strengths, channels, etc)
  • customizable settings (timeouts, packets/sec, etc)
  • “anonymous” feature; changes MAC to a random address before attacking, then changes back when attacks are complete
  • all captured WPA handshakes are backed up to wifite.py’s current directory
  • smart WPA de-authentication; cycles between all clients and broadcast deauths
  • stop any attack with Ctrl+C, with options to continue, move onto next target, skip to cracking, or exit
  • displays session summary at exit; shows any cracked keys
  • all passwords saved to cracked.txt
  • built-in updater: ./wifite.py -upgrade
  • screenshot_wps

 

Requirements:

  • linux operating system (confirmed working on Backtrack 5, BackBox, BlackBuntu, Pentoo, Ubuntu 8.10 (BT4R1), Ubuntu 10.04, Debian 6, Fedora 16)
  • tested working with python 2.6.x, and python 2.7.x,
  • wireless drivers patched for monitor mode and injection. Most security distributions (Backtrack, BlackBuntu, etc) come with wireless drivers pre-patched, aircrack-ng (v1.1) suite: available via apt: apt-get install http://www.aircrack-ng.org/install.html
