WiFiBroot is an open-source Wi-Fi cracking tool that has the ability to hack WPA/WPA2 based Wi-Fi networks. The tool is multipurpose and can be used to perform a number of attacks on a wireless network. Since most wireless networks depend on WPA and WPA2 security authentication this tool has proved to be very helpful. It is written in python and has extensive features which make it very effective in bypassing WPA/WPA2.

WiFiBroot: Wi-Fi Cracking Tool for WPA/WPA2 [Handshake, PMKID, Cracking, EAPOL, Deauthentication]
As all-in-one Wi-Fi cracking tool WiFiBroot can be used to perform both online and offline hacking attacks, depending on Scapy, a packet manipulation python library. It provides 4 modes from which you can choose from, depending on the mode chosen you can crack the saved hashes when offline or deploy a real-time online attack. The tool also uses these modes to identify the type of attack that is being performed.
WiFiBroot is known to perform de-authentication, PMKID, handshake, and EAPOLS attacks. Because the tool collects information before launching an attack, all the attacks are accomplished within a very short time.
- Can work on Verbose mode
- Has wireless sniffer(which scans for any wireless network that is within range)
- Can dissociate frames automatically
- Has a directory for storing handshakes
- Automatically detects EAPOL
- Fast WPA and WPA2 cracking
- Offline Cracking
Since this tool relies on scapy it is important that you install Scapy first before starting the installation process. To install scapy run the the following command:
$ sudo pip3 install scapy==2.4.0
After scapy is installed you can proceed to install WiFiBroot by cloning the respo:
$ git clone https://github.com/hash3liZer/WiFiBroot.git
To get a list of available modes and options, use
$ sudo python wifibroot.py -h
Syntax: $ python3 wifibroot.py [--mode [modes]] [--options] $ python3 wifibroot.py --mode 2 -i wlan1mon --verbose -d /path/to/list -w pmkid.txt Modes: # Description Value 01 Capture 4-way handshake and crack MIC code 1 02 Captures and Crack PMKID (PMKID Attack) 2 03 Perform Manual cracking on available capture types. See --list-types 3 04 Deauthentication. Disconnect two stations and jam the traffic. 4 Use -h, --help after -m, --mode to get help on modes.
Mode: 01 Capture 4-way handshake and crack MIC code 1 Options: Args Description Required -h, --help Show this help manual NO -i, --interface Monitor Interface to use YES -v, --verbose Turn off Verbose mode. NO -t, --timeout Time Delay between two deauth requests. NO -d, --dictionary Dictionary for Cracking YES -w, --write Write Captured handshake to a seperate file NO --deauth Number of Deauthentication frames to send NO Filters: -e, --essid ESSID of listening network -b, --bssid BSSID of target network. -c, --channel Channel interface should be listening on. Default: ALL
Example: Capture 4-way handshake and crack MIC code
$ python3 wifibroot.py --mode 1 -i wlan1mon --verbose -d dicts/list.txt -w output.cap
Example: Capture and Crack PMKID
$ python3 wifibroot.py --mode 2 -i wlan1mon --verbose -d dicts/list.txt -w output.txt
