WiFi Hacking Tool Aircrack-ng 1.6 Released with New Features, Speed Up & Bug Fixes

Aircrack-ng 1.6 released with new features and a lot of improvements with Speed, memory usage and rate display. Aircrack-ng contains a complete set of tools to perform a Wi-Fi network security assessment.

The tool focuses on multiple areas of WiFi security such as capturing packets, replay attacks, checking WiFi cards and driver capabilities for injection.

Aircrack-ng 1.6

The most noticeable change with the new version is the rate display, with the new version “it takes into account the complexity of 802.11n/ac and calculates the maximum rate that can be achieved on the AP.”

Now it includes the basic UTF-8 support for ESSID, so you will get the WPA3 or OWE network displayed correctly.

Aircrack-ng is capable of loading PCAP and from the PCAP outputs can be generated in CSV/netxml format’s but the signal level was not displayed, which is fixed with the new version.

Also, the new version provides the option to read the files in realtime, instead of reading all at once.

“Huge improvements have been done under the hood as well. Code has been cleaned up, deduplicated (Pull Request 2010), reorganized (Pull Request 2032), which lead to a lot of fixes.”

Bugs with the CentOS 7 has been fixed by providing a script to install the from the source and simplified the build system.

Other Fixes and Improvements

  • Along with a few fixes, Airmon-ng now handles more network managers, and persistent ones; no need to run airmon-ng check kill a few times for the network managers that keep restarting.
  • Airdecap-ng can now decrypt both sides of the conversation when WDS is in use.
  • As usual, we updated WPE patches for freeradius and HostAPd.
  • Python 2 is dead as of January 1st, and now all our scripts support Python 3. If you are still running Python 2, don’t worry, they are still backward compatible.
  • Aircrack-ng contains fixes for a few crashes and other regressions, as well as improved CPU detection in some cases (-u option).

Aircrack-ng recently added packages building to the buildbots for a bunch of different distros: Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, SLES, OpenSuse, Fedora, RHEL, CentOS, Amazon Linux, and Elementary OS. Stable release packages will be available shortly, reads Aircrack-ng release notes.

Aircrack-ng Focus on Areas of WiFi Security

Monitoring: Packet capture and export of data to text files for further processing by third-party tools.
Attacking: Replay attacks, de-authentication, fake access points, and others via packet injection.
Testing: Checking WiFi cards and driver capabilities (capture and injection).
Cracking: WEP and WPA PSK (WPA 1 and 2).

Low Rate DDoS Attack

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
