[HowTo] Wifite: A Mass WEP and WPA Cracker for Backtrack4!
Wifite is a tool designed specific for Backtrack 4 RC1 distro of ubuntu, it helps you attack multiple WEP and WPA+2 encrypted networks at the same time. Its very easy to use, and those of you, who know GRIM's soft, this is much a like, However, since grim's software isnt supported no more, you will find this tool to be much more bug free and updated often.


Heres a Screenshot

Code:
http://code.google.com/p/wifite/


The tool works both with command shell and gui. What we will go through is the gui version, since its easier.

boot up wifite in your backtrack
Code:
./wifite.py

this gives you the Gui, where you can select settings. (see below)
[Image: snapshot-gui.png]

1. select interface. (wlan1?)
2. Select your encryption methods. (WEP for brute attack and WPA/WPA2 for directory attack)
3. Select which channel. (just check "all channels)
4. Minimum power (how good a signal strength?, personally do i check "everyone")
5. Dictionary (point to your password list, (only needed if you are cracking WPA/WPA2))
6. Time outs (select what fits you, ect. WEP is standard 10 min for each attack (Arp, chop, frag and so forth(10 min is more than plenty since it saves the IV's it already got from previous attacks)))
7. Last the packages. If your signal strength is strong, select bigger packages, if you have low strengths select lower. Default works like a charm.

When you have setup the gui, Go ahead and press start.

Now, The first thing it will do, is to scan for wifi in your area. Give it some time, Let it collect as much data as needed, I prefer to have 1 target with at least 1 client, It makes the handshake much faster.

Ctrl+C to continue when you got what you wanted.

It will then ask you for which network it should start cracking (or all of them) when you have selected the network, you simply let the tool work as its supposed to, you will eighter get a completed job, in which it will provide you with the password, or not completed, and you can try change some settings in the gui.


Try it out, and you will be amazed.

Edit. Wow, the board dont allow me to write sucessful (with 2 c's) ehheheh

hey bro. I assume that people looked at the pictures. It shows exacly where its located, But the Gui let you point to a custom directory if wanted. So in all fairness, i see no point in doing that.

You may need to chmod +x to the file... or adjust the python declaration line in the file to point to the proper python env settings...

Edit: Or just pass it directly to python to eliminate the need for the other two changes.
