Annoucements / Remove --ignore-negative-one option
« on: July 14, 2016, 08:23:47 PM »
This option was developed some time ago because drivers had an issue with the channel. Aircrack-ng tools would simply ignore invalid channel when used.

Nowadays, it does not happen anymore, except when network managers, supplicants, etc are playing with the card (which is not a good reason to keep it, anything messing with the card should be killed using airmon-ng check kill/taken care of).

If you have a good reason why it should stay, please update this ticket.

Programming / from syworks - Wireless IDS
« on: January 23, 2014, 01:57:32 AM »
The forum won't let syworks post this, so I offered him to post it for him. I'll check why.

Wireless IDS is an open source tool written in Python and work on Linux environment. This tool will sniff your surrounding air traffic for suspicious activities such as WEP/WPA/WPS attacking packets. It do the following
- Detect mass deauthentication sent to client / access point which unreasonable amount indicate possible WPA attack for handshakes.
- Continual sending data to access point using broadcast MAC address which indicate a possibility of WEP attacks
- Unreasonable amount of communication between wireless client and access point using EAP authentication which indicate the possibility of WPS bruteforce attack by Reaver / WPSCrack
- Detection of changes in connection to anther access point which may have the possibility of connection to Rogue AP (User needs to assess the situation whether similar AP name)

Visit for other updated information and tools.

No special required equipment is required to use this script as long as you have the following :
  1. Root access (admin)
  2. Wireless interface which is capable of monitoring
  3. Python installed
  4. Aircrack-NG suite installed
  5. TShark installed

Note: Application 3 - 5 are already pre-installed in Backtrack and Kali Linux.

Download / Installation
- Visit for all documentation and files or
- download the raw file directly from here
- Save the file '' to your Linux Desktop or any directory you like. For my case, i saved it on my desktop and enter the following in the terminal console.
   * cd Desktop/
   * chmod +x
   * ./

Once installation is completed, you may wish to delete the file where you have initially saved as the following had be created:
 - Directory : ~/SYWorks/
 - Directory : ~/SYWorks/WIDS/
 - Directory : ~/SYWorks/WIDS/tmp
 - File         : ~/SYWorks/WIDS/
 - File         : ~/usr/sbin/

Running the application
- You can run the script at any directory by entering ''.
- Once the script is running, it will detect the wireless interface that you have and if you have more than one interface, it will prompt you for response.
- If there is no suspicious activity found, it will display 'Did not detect any suspicious activity..'
- Note : If you want to exit the script, simply hit on 'Ctrl+C' to exit the application.

Detected Possible WEP Attacks
- If a possible WEP attacks detected, it will show the Wireless client / Access Point MAC  Address (AP Name) and also any authentication/association request made.

Detected Possible WPA Attacks
- If a possible WPA attacks detected, it will show the Wireless client / Access Point MAC  Address (AP Name) that the number of deauthentication packets were detected.
- If handshakes were also detected, it will display the number of handshake packets found.

Detected Possible WPS Attacks
- Whenever a communication between a Wireless client  and Access Point using EAP, their MAC  Addresses will be displayed with the number of EAP packets were detected.
- It consistent communication of such request, it is likely that a WPS Bruteforce is in progress.

Detected Changes In Clients Connection to Another Access Point
- The script also detect any changes when a wireless client which is initially connected to a access point subsequently switch connection to another access point, which could have the  possibility connection  to a Rogue AP (User should also note the AP name)

Checking / Updating of Script
- Enter ' --update' to check online for any updates for the script

Displaying Help
- Enter ' --hh' to display advanced help

Command line Arguments
- Enter ' --timeout ' to set the captured timeframe.

Removing The Script
- Enter ' --remove' to remove the script should you wanted to remove the script totally from your computer.

Newbies / From r0tati0n - Is WPA password saved?
« on: December 09, 2013, 08:48:44 PM »

I managed to get a WPA2 password with aircrack-ng. However, after the password was retrieved successfully, the power went down before I could write down the password.
Is the password saved somewhere? I didn't find it in the folder, where the .cap files are.

Command would be

Code: [Select]
john -stdout -incremental:all ¦ aircrack-ng -a 2 -b bssid -w - cap.cap

Thanks in Advance

Basically, the cloud instance hosting the forum crashed and I can't get access to my backup.

It crashed a few weeks ago and the last backup I have is 10 month old. I am deeply sorry for the data loss. I wish I learned a different way to be more careful with backups but what is done is done :/

That backup will be available in read-only mode as soon as OVH grant me access to the data that was on the persistant disk which is unlikely to happen before the end of June. They want to roll out a new cloud and right now they're preventing some functions in the current interface to work so I can't do anything right now and the customer service is not responding.
If you want more details, you can check out this blog post.

You will have to re-create an account. If you were a member before and had more than 100 posts, please use the same email account that you used in the old forum. When the old forum is re-installed, contact me (Private message in this forum).
