    Default cracking wpa

    Hi, so I am using backtrack and trying to crack my own password, and instead of going thru a dictionary, would command would I use after I have the handshake to make it so it runs thru a certain word. My password is jacks1997 and I want to run it so it starts with jacks0000000000 and continues on all the way to jacks9999999999

    Thanks

    I'm not sure if this is entirely correct, trying to remember the correct syntax;

    Code:
    /pentest/passwords/crunch/crunch 9 9 -t jacks%%%% | aircrack-ng -w - /path/to/cap.file
    This should allow crunch to work from jacks0000 through to jacks9999. I don't think you need it to start from jacks0000000000 to jacks9999999999 as it won't get your password.

    Have a search for piping crunch to aircrack-ng, you will find much better info.

    The above syntax for crunch is correct, however as you are piping it through, I would suggest you
    include the -u switch to supress the information on estimated size to be created.
    And also include the ESSID or BSSID for aircrack ;

    Code:
     
    /pentest/passwords/crunch/crunch 9 9 -t jacks%%%% -u | aircrack-ng -w - -e ESSID /path/to/cap.file

    Sounds like you are missing something regarding the location.

    Post the exact syntax you are using and where you have your wordlists stored.

    wpa has a minimum of 8 characters... so create a small txt file with 8 character words and try again,
    also you need to include either the BSSID or the ESSID.. read up a bit more on WPA if I were you.

    i think also thats problem but thats not true. in dictionary that come with backtrack4 also have words with less than 8 characters and works fine?
