The Aircrack-ng SuiteAircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, as well as the all-new PTW attack, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools. In fact, Aircrack-ng is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks.

16 Apr 14Training at BlackHat USAI will be teaching Advanced Wi-Fi Penetration Testing with Vivek Ramachandran at BlackHat Las Vegas this year.
14 Apr 14Heartbleed vulnerability and Aircrack-ngI guess you all heard about that nasty vulnerability in OpenSSL. If not, you can read more about it on Wikipedia.

Aircrack-ng, the software itself, is not affected at all since it doesn't rely on heartbeat, so recompiling is not necessary.

Some parts of the website may have been affected (only if you had an account on it):
- Wiki
- Trac
If you are concerned, you can contact me about it. I will gladly help you change your password if you had an account on any of those 3 subdomains that might have been affected.

Now, the good news:
- OpenSSL libraries and SSL certificates have been updated (and my hosting provider for the wiki seems unaffacted).
- I haven't noticed any suspicious activity so far but I will continue to monitor.
- We are now using certificates from CAcert for almost all parts of (the wiki is on a shared hosting). In order to avoid your browser giving you a warning, please install the CAcert root certificate on your system.
- The forum didn't have HTTPS, so, it wasn't affected at all. Thanks to the new certificate, it is now accessible over HTTPS.
31 Mar 14Aircrack-ng 1.2-beta3 releaseAnd a third beta. I can guarantee there will be at least a fourth one before the final 1.2 release.
Release Notes:
- Finally fixed the buffer overflow for good.
- Fixed issue with invalid channels when scanning (108, 125, etc) that was due to radiotap parsing.
- Updated radiotap parser to the latest git.
- Other small fixes.

Without these DLLs, the windows version will not function. Do NOT post questions or problems to the forum regarding the windows version. At present, there is no support provided.
