Aircrack "Key Found!" - Now what?
Great community, lots of great info. Sorry for the noob inquire.
I've been doing this for about a week on my MBP C2D with the BT3 live CD, BT2 didnt work with my wireless card...anyway...
I've been tooling around, testing my network and got all the way, using the Xploitz video tuts, to using aircrack-ng. I got the "Found Key - Decrypted correctly: 100%" with xx:xx:xx:xx...etc. but I'm not sure what to do with this? And I'm not really sure how to search for the answer. Any directions? I'd like to get a key that I can input into a windows connection window if possible.
Also, this may be completely noobish, but how come I have aircrack 1.0? and in other tuts around the web I've seen all the way up to 2.3? just a side question.
First of it was your network you should know the key. You just put the key into the little box that says "enter WEP key here".
the current version of aircrack is....Latest version: 1.0-beta2
However you are right I found a download for 2.41 hereNot sure what it is exactly.
Well whatever it is its missing aireplay and packetforge and a few other crucial aircrack tools so I would stick with what you got. Use the fasttrack aircrack update selection if you want the latest development version.
Just burned his ISO
XX:XX:XX:XX:XX should be the key.
with out : <- this
so XXXXXXXXXX is the key simply.
type it in the windows network connection.
and of course it has to be your NETWORK !!
I guess I'm trying to realize how someone would use this info to crack my wireless. If aircrack decrypts the key, but doesn't actually give you the key, what would the attacker do next? Can I literally put the "83:55:F7:..etc." into "enter WEP key here" dialog box? Since thats the only info aircrack has given me.
Back to aircrack ver. #'s. Was aircrack 1.0-beta2 released before BT3 beta? I have aircrack 1.0 beta 1 r857, which is obviously an older version. Is it possible to update the BT3 cd, or do I have to update it everything I boot up?
Again, noobish stuff. Thanks for your patience.
Look I dont know how to make it more clear. You obviously don't have your own wireless network because if you did you would know that when you enter your "passphrase" in the router it generates 4 hash combos and this is what you enter in to connect to the wireless network. The "key" that aircrack gives you is one of these hash's.
To answer your other question the newest aircrack release came out after the bt3 beta cd. If you are having trouble with some of these other concepts the task of adding something to the live cd is probably going to be over your head. I'm not trying to insult you just stating a fact.
No problem helping you learn to fish. Start here and then here.
