Fake Access Points

Yesterday we had some funny bringing down a wireless network. But let's say you want to replace the wireless router names around you. All of them. Even hundreds. Simultaneously. Well put your typing panties on because we're about to being.

By using a simple script included in Kali Linux called MDK3, we can replace all the routers in the area with either random characters or even names that you choose. People around can and will connect to your "network" only to find out there's no connection there at all.

BEWARE: This can, according to MDK's development team, "crash network scanners and even drivers!" Please, please, please use this with caution. Most modern devices (cell phones, laptops, and tablets) should handle the list of HUNDREDS of fake WiFi access points just fine, but heed the creator's warning.

What You Will Need

  • Kali Linux (either a bootable LiveCD or bootable USB image)
  • Network card capable of monitor mode ("promiscuous mode") and packet injections. My recommendation is: Alfa AWUS036H
  • MDK3

Flooding With Fake Access Points

After you watch the video, play around with some of the advanced features. Including spoofing encrypted networks and even a deauthentication option, similar to yesterday's Aireplay deauthentication tutorial.

Now, let's get to the hack:
