    Post Request: OUI (MAC address) lookup script

    During security assessments I find it useful to know what company made the different networking devices (including wireless) , this can for example help in finding default credentials or knowing which attack is most likely to succeed on the device. This information can be retrieved from the OUI in the MAC address of the device. Since I couldn't find a script to do this on BackTrack, I wrote it myself. This script might be useful for other BackTrack users as well.

    I posted the script in the expert part of this forum, but since I finished the script and it seems to work fine I though it would be ok to request adding it to BackTrack.

    The script has been published on this forum: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...up-script.html, as well as on my own website Thice.nl Any update to the script will be published on my own website as well.

    If this post is seen as a double post or as spam, please just delete it.

    And why should I try that? There are multiple ways to grep this data, you can also just grep the OUI file of aircrack. However, I wanted to build an easy to use script which will accept any type of OUI or MAC address notation, which you can not easily do with grepping. I guess you missed the idea of this tool.
