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
