We all want to get our neighbor’s Wi-Fi password , but its not easier to crack a Wi-Fi , here is a simple way to get someone’s Wi-Fi password without cracking i. e. Wifiphisher. Yeah a Kali Linux tool , you will need to go with.
sometimes you may find yourself at lonely location, without having internet then this kind of hacks may help you. You just need to open your laptop and fire up Kali Linux to hack the Wi-Fi around you.
In my previous article i published about hydra to crack gmail password , now we will move on next tool i.e. Wifiphisher
Now follow the steps
1. Download Wifiphisher
You can simply Download wifiphisher from git hub, Fire up Kali and open terminal then type following command –
kali > tar -xvzf /root/wifiphisher-1.1.tar.gz
the another way is you can clone the code from git hub by typing
kali > git clone https://github/sophron/wifiphisher
2. Go To Directory
Well you’ve installed the tool now, to hack the Wi-Fi you need to open the directory in terminal where the tool wifiphisher is unpacked , it may be at wifiphisher-1.1.
kali > cd wifiphisher-.1.1 now you can check the list of content in wifiphisher directory by typing
kali > ls -l
Here you will see a python script as wifiphisher.py , this is the back bone of tool, we will use this script to get the password of Wi-Fi.
3. Execute The script
We need to run the script. you can execute the script by typing as and hit enter
kali > python wifiphisher.py
It may ask you to install “hostpad”, by saying “hostpad not found in /usr/sbin/hostpad; install now? [y/n]
Install the hostpad by typing “y”
After complete install, you need to run the script again
kali > python wifiphisher.py
It will create two http server on port 880 and on port 443
After complete process there will be a list of all discovered available Wi-Fi networks
4. Time To Attack Wi-Fi
Its time to attack on the discovered Wi-Fi, just type Ctrl+c on keyboard and you will be asked for “access point” no. of the Wi-Fi, choose the Wi-Fi from the list which you want to hack/crack and note the access point no of that Wi-Fi , which is displayed just before the name of the Wi-Fi .
Type the access point no, in my case this is 5 and hit enter
When you will hit Enter, Wifiphisher will display a screen like the one below that indicates the interface being used and the SSID of the Access Point being attacked and cloned
the target wifi users will be de-authenticated from their Access Point and when they will be re-authenticate they will be directed to cloned evil tin access point.
Now rest of work will be completed by proxy, the proxy on http web servers we created before, will catch their request and will serve up a page which contains a message like a new firmware is available to improve functionality and performance. login again to download and upgrade
When user will enter the password it will be served to you in Wifiphisher terminal. and the target user will be redirected to internet having no idea what mistake he/she just made..
