It's a combination of different attacks.
Cisco still has a bunch of support tickets running.
Their Intrusion Detection System crashed because of this special attack.
And with the IDS the routing tables at the whole university got mixed up for
about half an hour.
So, TRY THIS AT HOME, but not anywhere else.
The combination is:
- Running beacon flood mode to generate fake APs with the same name as your
- Auth-DoS the original AP with intelligent mode
- Use the amok mode to kick the clients
And for the next version of mdk3
- Use the upcoming WIDS confusion mode to cross-connect kicked clients to
real and fake APs making all security systems go FUBAR.
In this 802.11-hell, there should be nobody able to access the network.
-> They get kicked when they connect (Amok mode)
-> They will see thousands of APs, unable to know which is the one to connect,
thus they are just trying around blindly (beacon flood)
-> The original AP may be too busy to handle the real clients because of the
