    Maybe your neighbor/s is/are running honeypots.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    boredom, curiosity, fun, free internet... i'm sure most would just break off and go for the easy kill. if not for the already dead (ie: my neighbors who leave their net wide open.)
    another good deterrent could be using those programs that spam out hundreds of false ssid's.

    lol so much for going offtopic.
    Hey, nice to see someone new to the forums. I have been away for a while, doing work, and life, etc.

    I finally found the time today to try out my copy of BT4 Beta. :] So far looks good, however I downloaded my copy more than a month ago, so I don't really know if it's up to date. I'm downloading the VM version right now.

    As for you point about motives for cracking WIFI, I think your absolutely right. Most people are either board, want to steal information, or just want free internet. And your also right, Most people planning to abuse the victim's connection, they probably would go for an easy kill... or as you said, an already dead connection.

    And, if your government's after you, then you may as well count yourself caught...

    lol.

    WPA is about the most secure the average computer user needs to be.

So with that in mind I'd say "Yes" its pretty important.

    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    With the right amount of time you can bruteforce anything. Its only a matter of whether the time is relativly possible or not.

    Bruteforce WILL eventually find the right password. No question asked.
    Dictionary is NOT bruteforcing since it isnt guaranteed to EVER find the password if its not in the dictionary.

    Yup, with "whether the time is relativly (sic) possible" being the catch phrase. You can try, but the last time I computed the figures, it would take about 57 years to bruteforce a 21 character passphrase using standard PC equipment.

    For those interested in the figures, read this thread:

    Specifically, at the top of page 3 within that that thread, I run some of the numbers:

    Passwords are like underwear. They should never be shared, and changed often.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    That was one of the best written up threads I have read on this forum, even the grammar and spelling was immaculate-delicious, thanks Thorn.

    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.
