    Default how to convert AP SSID(34fg5678f1420dd678d7b689) to human readable name

    Hello,

    somebody does always use my own open AP (no problem for me:-)


    In Airodump-ng I see that this user (very likely using WXP) did connect to the following APs before:

    mycloudy,34fg5678f1420dd678d7b689,mobile


    AP "34fg5678f1420dd678d7b689" is of interested to me me.


    Question:
    How can this AP-SSID(34fg5678f1420dd678d7b689) be converted into a human readable format that makes sense?


    Thank's a lot for any feedback!

    John

    Just to make sure...

    Is this what you see under the 'probes' area in airodump ?

    If so, that is simply the SSID that the client has previously associated with and is broadcasting..

    I dont think it is an encoded variation of an alternative name.. but could be mistaken.

    Suddenly weird kanji characters ? oh dear...

    Looks like this very same question posed here ;

    Hmm I don't know... because the "human readable SSID" of the user in question never changes, but the 24 character SSID's of that user chages every day...

    Hi,

    What access point do you use? Does it not show under connected devices - It should also show it's MAC address.

    Why not block the MAC address?

    Cheers!

    Sounds like an ad-hoc wifi to me.
    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

    I am human I can read it for you, it says "34fg5678f1420dd678d7b689", in English we call it`s format alpha numeric!
    Sometimes I try to fit a 16-character string into an 8–byte space, on purpose.
