  • this project is available in French: all thanks goto Matt² for his excellent translation!
  • sorts targets by power (in dB); cracks closest access points first
  • automatically deauths clients of hidden networks to decloak SSIDs
  • numerous filters to specify exactly what to attack (wep/wpa/both, above certain signal strengths, channels, etc)
  • customizable settings (timeouts, packets/sec, channel, change mac address, ignore fake-auth, etc)
  • "anonymous" feature; changes MAC to a random address before attacking, then changes back when attacks are complete
  • all WPA handshakes are backed up to's current directory
  • smart WPA deauthentication -- cycles between all clients and broadcast deauths
  • stop any attack with Ctrl+C -- options: continue, move onto next target, skip to cracking, or exit
  • switching WEP attack methods does not reset IVs
  • intel 4965 chipset fake-authentication support; uses wpa_supplicant workaround
  • SKA support (untested)
  • displays session summary at exit; shows any cracked keys
  • all passwords saved to log.txt
  • built-in updater: ./ -upgrade


  • linux operating system (confirmed working on Ubuntu 8.10 (BT4R1), Ubuntu 10.04.1)
  • tested working with python 2.4.5 and python 2.5.2; might be compatible with other versions,
  • wireless drivers patched for monitor mode and injection: backtrack4 has many pre-patched drivers,
  • aircrack-ng (v1.1) suite: available via apt: apt-get install aircrack-ng or by clicking here,
  • xterm, python-tk module: required for GUI, available via apt: apt-get install python-tk
  • macchanger: also available via apt: apt-get install macchanger
  • pyrit: not required, optionally strips wpa handshake from .cap files
