Homeless Hacker Tips #1
Using wifite to maintain broadband WiFi connectivity on the road
Most unlimited 4G plans will throttle your data or be unable to provide full megabit and gigabit 4G in rural areas.
You may break down and have a trusty Linux box and a generator where you can potentially base your operation. Unfortunately none of the WiFi APS are available for public use and you barely have the money for your phone bill let alone gas and stabil for your generator.
First if you don’t have Kali installed please start with that.
Assuming fresh kali install on suitable hardware, run the following:
Also make sure you install the hcx tools and dependencies
Apt-get install libcurl14-openssl-dev libssl-dev zlib1g-dev libpcap-dev
Now because the default wordlist in wifite is not included in latest version of kali
Restart then enter
Gzip -d /usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt.gz
wifite –kill -v -mac –dict /usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt
Pick your target AP.
Let it rip!
Note, unless clients are connected you could be sitting for a very long time waiting for client handshake.
Rather than picking a hard target and flipping their main power supply while listening make it easy on yourself.
Also the better your word lists the better your chances.
