Most of users want to hack WiFi password. Commonly users ask questions how to hack WiFi password without cracking because, cracking take a lot of time to hack password. There are many ways to hack the WiFi password, but here i recommend you to hack the password by using Wifiphisher tool.
Wifiphisher is the one of tool, without cracking hacker can hack the WPA/WPA2 protected Wi-Fi networks. Wifiphisher is basicaly a social engineering tool that allows a hacker to hack the WiFi password by phishing attacks against WiFi networks. These attacks stole the password of the network. This tool helps to hack WPA/WPA2 passwords easily.
Steps in the Wifiphisher Strategy
Wifiphisher takes the following steps:
- De-authenticate the user from their legitimate AP.
- Allow the user to authenticate to your evil twin.
- Offer a webpage to the user on a proxy that notifies them that a “firmware upgrade” has taken place, and that they need to authenticate again.
- The Wi-Fi password is passed to the hacker and the user continues to the web oblivious to what just happened.
Lets take a look how to hack the WiFi password by using Wifiphisher tool.
Step 1: Download Wifiphisher
- Fire up Kali and open a terminal
- Download Wifiphisher from GitHub
Step 2 : Unpack Wifiphisher script
Unpack the Wifiphisher as:
kali > tar -xvzf /root/wifiphisher-1.1.tar.gz
You can see the image given below how to unpack the script.
Or an hacker can clone the code from GitHub by typing:
kali > git clone https://github/sophron/wifiphisher
Step 3: Navigate to the directory
When you unpack the script, it creates a directory, you have to navigate the directory as the following case have: /wifiphisher-1.1.
kali > cd wifiphisher-.1.1
In the contents of that directory, hacker will see that the wifiphisher.py script is there.
kali > ls -l
Step 4: Run the Script
Wifiphisher script can be run by typing:
kali > python wifiphisher.py
Note that I preceded the script with the name of the interpreter, python.
On first time installation, it will inform you to “hostapd” is not found and ask you to install. For yes you have to type “y”. Now it will proceed for the installation of hostapd.
On its completion, once again, execute the Wifiphisher script.
kali > python wifiphisher.py
You will see it will start the web server on port 8080 and 443, then go about and discover the available Wi-Fi networks.
List of WiFi networks will be available once on its completion. In the given images the available network is “wonderhowto” and is going to be hacked by pushing attacks.
Step 5: Send Your Attack & Get the Password
Now press Ctrl + C from your keyboard and you will be prompted for the number of the AP that you would like to attack. In given example it is 12.
Press Enter from your keyboard, Wifiphisher will display a screen like the one below that indicates the interface being used and the SSID of the AP being attacked and cloned.
At this time, the target network will be de-authenticated from its AP. On its re-authenticate, proxy on the web server will catch your request and serve up an authentic-looking message.
Now hack to have to enter password, it will be passed to you through the Wifiphisher open terminal, as seen below.
