    Default Possible Pyrit bug.

    Hi there!
    First of all I'm not sure if this is the right forum category for my thread, so correct me if I'm wrong.

    My test network name: MOM1
    My pssword : MOM12345
    pyrit -e MOM1 -r MOM1.cap -i pass.txt attack_passthrough
    cannot find the passkey

    pyrit -e MOM1 -i pass.txt -o - passthrough | cowpatty -d - -r MOM1.cap -s MOM1
    The PSK is "MOM12345".

    I'm in the process of discussing this problem with Lucas Lueg, but it seems his output is different than mine.

    Strange thing, that aircrack cannot find the password, and we have different results using Cowpatty 4.6, such as:
    Mine:
    cowpatty -f pass.txt -r MOM1.cap -s MOM1 The PSK is "MOM12345".
    His:
    # cowpatty -f pass.txt -r MOM1.cap -s MOM1
    cowpatty 4.6 - WPA-PSK dictionary attack. <jwright@hasborg.com>
    End of pcap capture file, incomplete four-way handshake exchange. Try using a
    different capture.

    To reproduce this problem you will need my .cap file. You will find it on author's website along with other info you might find useful. Open Issue 120.
    This is my first post, so be gentle with me, please.
    Can you post your feedbacks, please?

    Handshake detection has always been a issue with pyrit.

    Thanks for your reply pureh@te
    I ran pyrit -r MOM1.cap analyze, and looks like pyrit finds it.
    Is BT's cowpatty 4.6 patched?
    I noticed option "-2" in cowpatty 4.6, when Lucas Lueg gave me his output.
    Have you tried to reproduce my problem? Can you either confirm or deny it?
    There are two other programs (I'm not supposed to mension these programs here, but I have strong feeling, that you know what I have in mind), that give me similar outputs:
    first one with network support cannot find the passphrase, the stand alone one finds it with no problem.
    I really appreciate your help

    I have not tried it. The -2 flag was something my friend Edgan made as a patch for cowpatty 4.3 and is no longer needed in 4.6 since Josh Wright coded it into 4.6. I can assure you that the cowpatty in backtrack is the most up to date.
