    Default aircrack-ng WPA dictionary help

    Hey there,

    I am relatively new to the Backtrack 3 and using it to test networks.

    I recently downloaded a 33.5 GB (compressed) Dictionary file (wpa_tables.tar.7z) which I am sure someone on here is familiar with. I used 7Zip on my Ubuntu machine to unzip, then unpacked the .Tar file, which then gives me about 5 folders, each with over 100 individual files labled as different SSIDs.

    Basicly, I want to know if A. There is an easier way to utilize these 100s of files other than telling aircrack-ng to use 1 file at a time? and B. is there a better utility to use other than aircrack-ng? I know backtrack has other utilities, and I wasn't sure is BT3 was the best for WPA/WPA2 cracking.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    You should probably figure out what it is you are downloading before wasting bandwidth on 33 gigs. They are precomputed hash tables for the top 1000 essid's so if the essid you want to crack is not in the list then they are pretty much worthless to you. The tables are based of this same password list.

    Like I said do some research before blindly downloading stuff.

    haha, well, i did mention i was new to this.

    I just got excited over the 33.5 GB file, "Theres no way it wont work" - says the noob.

    Well, since I have your attention, is there a decent list (other than the one you just linked) for a dictionary? I just started doing alot of router installations and would like to be able to test the WPA.

    thanks for you help!

    33 gigs of free pr0n or mp3s maybe is worth getting excited over.

    Very good answer, But in all reality, I do installations for businesses and corporations, and I like to think that its just an added security measure
