Wireless networks are common in enterprise environments, making them a prime target for penetration testers. Additionally, misconfigured wireless networks can be easily cracked, providing penetration testers with a great deal of valuable information about the network and its users. This article explores some of the most widely-used tools for different aspects of wireless network hacking.
Kismet is one of the most famous Wi-Fi hacking tools available. It is a network sniffer capable of monitoring 802.11 wireless traffic as well as other wireless protocols, such as Bluetooth and Zigbee.
Wireshark is designed to be an intuitive and easy-to-use tool, but it is designed for network traffic analysis. This means that, while the tool may be easy to use and invaluable for wireless hacking, an understanding of network fundamentals is necessary to use it effectively.
Kali Linux NetHunter is an open-source version of the Kali Linux operating system for Android devices. It provides several different tools for Wi-Fi hacking and mobile penetration testing, including Wireless 802.11 frame injection and one-click MANA Evil Access Point setup.
Wireless network hacking is an essential skill set for the modern penetration tester. While the tools described in this post are organized into categories, many have functionality that spans multiple different areas. Gaining familiarity with a few different wireless hacking tools can be a valuable investment in an ethical hacking career.
72. Spiderfoot: SpiderFoot is an open source intelligence (OSINT) automation tool. It integrates with just about every data source available, and automates OSINT collection so that you can focus on data analysis.
It leverages torrenting -- a popular file-sharing method associated with piracy -- to spread the malware. Popular torrent files, especially games, are packaged with malicious coding and then uploaded for unsuspecting users to download.
RAUM's developers have created a slick interface for their product. It can monitor the status of the malicious torrent files over popular sites such as The Pirate Bay and ExtraTorrent, which often act as a directory for users to download pirated content.
\"In some cases, the lifespan of these seeded malicious files exceeded 1.5 months and resulted in thousands of successful downloads,\" InfoArmor said. Customers of the tool have frequently been using it to package malware with PC-based online games for both Windows and Mac.
Project Reality can be installed with our official installer. To download the installer you can either use the official torrent, the PR Download Assistant Tool(Uses Torrent protocol as well) or one of the direct download HTTPS mirrors.
In order to download the Torrent file if you choose that option, you must have a BitTorrent client installed on your computer. We recommend using qBittorrent. It is highly recommended that you download all Project Reality modifications direct though the torrents to avoid corrupt downloads. But make sure this isn't blocked by your Internet Service Provider cause in that case you should use the direct download HTTPS mirrors.
I'm glad to announce the release of Cheat Engine 7.5 which has some really neat improvements over 7.4My patreon members can get it here (The public release will be here any day now. Waiting for the advertisers / network owners to accept it) Please reports bugs and give suggestions to improve Cheat Engine so next version can be even greater!Changes:from patreon 7.4.3 to public 7.5:removed the driver requirement for the access memory regions tooladded 1 byte jmp instructions (that will install an exeption handler and place an int3 at the location)added a scanoption so you can skip unpaged memory. (should prevent targets from eating up RAM when scanned)reassemble() now rewrites an instruction using multiple lines when needed make some error messages more descriptiveadded an option to center the highlighted disassembler code to the centeradded an explanation why the driver won't load and a link with info on how to get it to load for nowmemoryrecord hotkeys can now be disabled individuallycodefilter: unwind info now gives less bad resultsadded support for pseudo-ops like cmpss/sd/ps/pdlua: added ceserver commandslua: show a stacktrace on execution errorlua: added convertToUTF8(stringbytetable, regioncode)made loading CT files with signatures possible under wine and protonfrom patreon 7.4.2 to patreon 7.4.3:ceserver: pipe support (mono data dissector)ceserver: added change memory protection capabilityceserver: Available options can now be sent to the CE GUI.netinfo: Replaced the fields view with a treenetwork config: The processlist now has focus after opening a serverlua: added virtualstringtreelua: added invertColorlua: added disassembleBytes(bytestring)autoassembler: now a visual warning is shown when nearby allocation failsautoassembler: the templates now generate 14 byte jmp safe original code blocks as wellpointerscan now has a deviation option for \"pointer must end with offset\" to help find pointers back after updateultimap: added copy selected results to clipboardfrom patreon 7.4.1 to patreon 7.4.2ipt: Added intel process trace feature provided by microsoft.ceserver: Improve the modulelist fetch speed, more stableceserver: option to disconnect from closed ceserversceserver: the discovery list is now also a history listceserver: implement injection on arm64 as wellceserver: also gets the fpu registers nowassembler x86_64: prefer mov rax,[rip+xxx] over mov rax,[imm64] disasembler x86_64: switch from r#l to r#b because why notmono: the dll now has a versioncheck so that you don't accidentally mix monodatacollector dll'smono: deal with situations where there is no mainformmono/.net: the methodlist is now sorted by namebetter arm disassembler and assemblerbetter arm64 disassembler and assembler the scanregions can be saved/loaded upon close/start ce (seperate option in settings)added an option to skip loading .PDB filesa lot more functions are exposed to newstate threadsadded ranges scans to groupscanfreeze+allow increase/decrease now also looks if the value is signedtrainers: Forms and controls now scale based on DPIchanging record showassigned/showashex now also applies to other selected entriestexttraces now don't save as .cetrace but as .txt nowccode: #include now searches table files for files there as wellccode: the internal symbolhandler can now deal with stdcalled function symbolslua: added ImageIndex property to TTreeNodelua: added OnValuechanged and OnValueChangedByUser callbacks to MemoryRecord objectslua: added getOpenedFileSize()lua: added onHelpEvent callbacklua: added releaseDebugFiles()lua: added enumRegisteredSymbolLists() and enumRegisteredSymbols()lua: added getBitmap method to ImageList objectsfrom public 7.4 to patreon 7.4.1:added .Visible property to treenode entriesadded .VisibleRowCount and .TopItem to listviewsadded arm64 disassembling and assemblingadded lua function \"runCommand\"added a radiobutton to select if the generated script will use 5 or 14 byte jmps.conditional jumps can now deal 2gb+ destinations (will get rewritten)dotnetinfo: Performance improvementmemory record hotkeys now have a \"Only while down\" optionUpdated the dbghelp to a more recent version which can better handle nowadys pdb symbolsdifferent memory allocations now get placed within the initial allocation block.
