Hacking Weekend

So, I’ve been experimenting over the weekend with Backtrack 4. My… Lord….

Times have changed, it used to be that if you wanted to mess with WEP you have to go thru a dozen intermediate stages. wesside-ng makes life so much simpler.30 minutes, fully automated.

What i had done previously was manual airodump-ng, aireplay-ng with arp attacks, and then shifting the caps onto my big box to crack inside of 10 seconds, pity is the packet capture on a quiet network can take a day.

Also, if you cant be assed with the whole Backtrack thing. the whole thing can be swiped from the subversion repo

svn co http://trac.aircrack-ng.org/svn/trunk/ aircrack-ng

Its been a long day.
