    Angry problems cracking my wpa passowrd..dictionary issues

    Hi everyone

    I got a handshake, but Iím having problem trying to crack the password. The password itís not hard at all. Itís marlene10

    I download a dictionary from http://www.churchofwi.org/FileLib/...l-wordlist.zip

    I then created a rainbow table using this dictionary:
    genpmk -f <9-final-wordlist.txt> -d <hashfile> -s <martin>

    I then ran cowpatty:
    cowpatty -r <handshake-01.cap> -d <hashfile> -s <martin>

    But it ask me to extend the list.

    So I modified the dictionary (9-final-wordlist.txt) and added marlene10 which is the WPA password and then I ran the following command:

    aircrack-ng -c <handshake-01.cap> -w <9-final-wordlist.txt>

    and it did find the key!!!!.

    This proof that the handshake itís good. My problem must be with the dictionary??

    So I ran jhon the ripper
    john --rules -w: <9-final-wordlist.txt> -stdout:63 | aircrack-ng -e <martin> -w - <handshake-01.cap>

    but this doesnít work

    What should I do to fix my problem???? Thanks in advance

    You've just proved the point. Unless the password is in the dictionary, throwing random garbage at a WPA hash will most likely fail. Now you could get lucky and win the lottery, but the odds are better to win the lotto, than to actually get the password.

    This may be a long shot, but try running the fromdos command on 9-final-wordlist.txt before you use genpmk. This command will ensure you don't have any CR/LF characters at the end of password(s) in the list. CR/LF would definitely screw up the resulting hash file (I'm not sure about JtR).

    we're forgetting that you are trying to crack your wpa, so if you can't do it easily then you have a good passkey. Its fun to crack your own stuff but its definatly a positive if you have so much trouble cracking a handshake without having your passkey added to the dicti0nary on purpose.
