    Default Gerix-Wifi-Cracker + Hidden SSID

    Trying to associate with a network that has an hidden SSID will produce an error message "No network selected [failure]".

    IMHO, it seems like an expected error since aireplay's fakeauth attack needs an SSID to work. A possible workaround would be to add an option to deauth a client, making him to reveal the network SSID (some clients already do this even when they are connected).

    But what if its WEP and no clients?
    Is there a work around for that?

    There are brute force attacks. I red it somewhere, i think that the tool used for this attack is MDK. Also a possible option to add to gerix.

    No, I don't. Even if gerix-wifi-cracker is open source (which I don't know if it is), I don't have enough knowledge in programming to do that myself (or maybe I have, but I don't feel like checking at the moment... ). Anyway, and if I recall correctly, MDK's hidden SSID cracking attack need a wordlist to work, it would be like cracking WPA.

    A nice option would to include an option to use a dictionary attack using MDK3 with the ssid list used in the CoWF tables or user specified one.

    To crack hidden SSIDs, MDK3 can either use a dictionary attack, or a bruteforce attack.

    Mind you the bruteforce approach is not recommended for anything over 4 characters really..

    For info, I put a vid up on it a while agoon the old forums;
