WEP Wifi Networks are open to attack.


The 5-Minute WEP Cracker

A long time ago, most of your neighbor’s WiFi would have been totally unsecured but today, most home WiFi’s are definitely secured.

Keep in mind though, their security is probably no more than the basic protection: WEP.

Although WEP can be cracked in a mere matter of minutes, as I will now show you, WPA2 is still considered to be more secure.

I will show you here how to crack a WEP network as long as you’re doing it for the educational value of the mater.

However, if you start to steal bandwidth or look around for sensitive information, you could easily end up in a lot of trouble.

So, for the sake of education, set up your own WiFi network and have a try at cracking it using these simple instructions.

Aircrack is a tool suite which was written with the sole purpose of cracking WiFi passwords.

Keep in mind that compiling, installing and even letting Aircrack work on your system is quite difficult but it also recommends Linux and both their websites have quite simple instructions for you to create a bootable media.

The next step for you is to ensure your WLAN card is supported by Aircrack since it requires hacked driver for your WLAN card.

Aircrack can test this for you by trying to inject some packets into the air to find if it is supported.

WEP Cracking

Finally, choose a WiFi to crack! As agreed before, set up your own WiFi while testing this to not get yourself into trouble.

Remember, it has to be using WEP and your computer and/or access point have to be within a decently close physical range so that your injected packets can be picked up by the access point.

And finally, make sure you have at least one active connection to your WiFi network and you can do that on your own WiFi by simply loading a webpage every once in a while.

All in all, this would take you around five minutes to get enough data back which will let you figure out or “calculate” the password.

Multiple devices are still using the vulnerable WiFi WEP Encryption today.

Devices can include older printers, display projectors in meeting rooms, older tablet devices, smart fridges, smart photo frames and older IoT devices.

An attacker can exploit older vulnerable equipment with the WEP encryption and compromise otherwise secure networks. 

It is important to scan the perimeter and find any device using weak encryption and make sure it is disabled or not connected to critical infrastructure.
