Penetrator-WPS Description

This is experimental tool that is capable of attacking multiple WPS-enabled wireless access points in real time.

It utilizes the pixie-dust attack every time it receives M3 message, unless it is disabled with -P pixie-dust requires pixiewps to be installed.

	-D 		Disable loading sessions - starts new
	-W 		Wait after every PIN attempt
	-v		verbose - print info about WPS messages etc
	-vv		verbose level 2 - print pixiewps data
	-t <seconds>	Set time limit for scanning (default 10)
	-T <ms>		Set timeout - when it occurs, resend last packet (default 1)

Penetrator-WPS Usage Example

1. Adding targets manually

This command will attack two APs on channel 1 at the same time, one has BSSID 11:22:33:44:55:66 and second has ESSID "example" and BSSID66:55:44:33:22:11

penetrator -i mon0 -c 1 -b 11:22:33:44:55:66 -e example -b 66:55:44:33:22:11

2. Attacking entire channel

This will scan for APs on channel 1 and attack them all at the same time

penetrator -i mon0 -c 1

3. Attacking all APs in range with pixiewps

This will scan all specified channels (or range 1-13 if nothing is specified) and will try pixie-dust attack on all of them.

There is a timeout of 1 minute for every channel, so if it fails to capture M3 message from some APs, it will just skip them.

By default, all APs on the same channel will be attacked at the same time, this can be disabled with -M

penetrator -i mon0 -A

4. Attack all WPS APs in range one by one:

penetrator -i mon0 -A -M

5. Attack all WPS APs on channels 1 and 6:

penetrator -i mon0 -A -c 1 -c 6
