How to crack WPA WPA2 protected WIFI networks

Easy & fast

Use Wifite ! Wifite is a python script which automates the WEP and WPA cracking process.
What you need :
- A Linux OS (Backtrack recommended)
- Aircrack-ng suite (v1.1 is Preferred)
- Python >= 2.4.5
- Obviously a wifi card with up-to-date linux driver

How to use ?
Download here. Just type ./ and you will see that it automatically puts a wireless interface into monitor mode and starts scanning for the nearby wireless networks.

Note: As written on Wifite's homepage : "Don't be a script kiddie. Understand the process being WEP and WPA cracking."
