cracking WEP with aircrack-ng

i just moved from Texas to Northern VA and its been hell finding a place to rent. We finally found a place but the cable man didn't come till monday, now that wont do i need my EH.net fix. thankfully there are plenty of wifi networks i can see from inside the house...

You should also start airodump-ng to capture replies. **we started airodump on step1

**at this point your airodump capture should really be filling up with a ton of data packets as we do the arp replay attack

**we can run aircrack while the arp replay attack is ongoing, so you dont have to stop the arp replay or fake authentication sessions.

Northern VA? Thats my old stomping ground.  I still have a lot of family there. Next time I get back that way I  will buy you a beer!

I really had to bite my tongue on this one, but in my not so humble attempt to be  not such a dick, I guess I will let this one slide! At least you are honest about it. Enjoy your free internet CEH.

Re: cracking WEP with aircrack-ng

did you go to the aircrack site and see if your wifi card was supported?

but yeah, you'll need a driver

Dont waste your time doing it with windows. You are not going to be able to inject.

Re: cracking WEP with aircrack-ng

Great post, so now I have two questions, do you really need to re-authenticate constantly, and more importantly, I did a wireless pen test for a company last week, they used wep :P, so I injected arp packets and ran aircrack-ng with -z, I was suprise to see that the attack did not succeed even with 1m IVs, I cracked it with the standard mode, but now I' wondering anyone have any idea why it failed?

Re: cracking WEP with aircrack-ng

I assume you are using the latest aircrack-ng since you are using the PTW command.  I have found cracking wep sometimes also requires a little luck and I believe the aircrack-ng site states the same thing. I have cracked 128 encryption with less than 200,000 IVs and once in awhile it has taken 2 million! 
  I really believe from my experience you will get the best results from using linux for this. Aircrack-ng was written to run on linux and later "ported" to run on windows and I use the term ported loosely.  However, you can get a driver that will enable many cards to go into monitor mode on windows at  the wildpackets site.
http://www.wildpackets.com/support/downloads
As far as I know there is no "free" or stable way to inject packets with windows, unless you want to spend several hundred dollars. There are some windows hacks but reports are they are not reliable. I haven't tired to inject with windows but a colleague of mine has and mentioned the results were not that great and not worth the cost. Again , I cant say personally, but I would spend money on that solution with caution.
If anyone here has had direct success with packet injection with windows, please share your experience.

Re: cracking WEP with aircrack-ng

for this purpose I have to set my wireless client to moniter mode!!so I need drivers for that!!my question is manufacturer supplied drivers will work or not if,i am in a limited account???

Re: cracking WEP with aircrack-ng

best thing to use is the madwifi drivers, but maybe one of the wireless gurus will answer.  i've had no issues with those drivers though.  I also have an atheros card.

Re: cracking WEP with aircrack-ng

I use the madwifi drivers also, but also I use hostap drivers sometimes because some apps i like require these. Make sure the kernel  you are running works with the driver you want to use. I have seen guys trying to compile drivers over and over trying to get them to work to no avail only to discover the kernel they are running doesnt support the driver they are trying to use, so save yourself some time and frustration. The aircrack-ng site has good instructions on how to modify the drivers you need. A lot depends on what you are trying to do. Typically you need "hacked" drivers in order to inject packets and when cracking smaller networks, packet injection is a must unless you want to spend days collecting IVs. Packet injection requires more than just being in monitor mode. You might find you can put your card into monitor mode but it doesn't inject.  The aircrack-ng site really has a lot of good info on it and anyone serious about cracking wifi should read it completely. After that you can bring in other apps or write your own to augment what you are doing. At that point you have a good foundation. Once you have it down, cracking wifi can be the most enjoyable thing you can do. Its actually can be cool watching all the packets your collecting and the aircrack-ng suite makes it very visual as you watch 1000 of packets inject and collect until the key "pops" up. Actually its one of the few visual hacks that would be interesting enough for hollywood.
