Wifite – Crack any wifi password within 5 minutes

Wifite is an automated wireless attack tool. Wifite was designed for use with pentesting distributions of Linux, such as Kali LinuxPentooBackBox; any Linux distributions with wireless drivers patched for injection. The script appears to also operate with Ubuntu 11/10, Debian 6, and Fedora 16.

Wifite must be run as root. This is required by the suite of programs it uses. Running downloaded scripts as root is a bad idea. I recommend using the Kali Linux bootable Live CD, a bootable USB stick (for persistent), or a virtual machine. Note that Virtual Machines cannot directly access hardware so a wireless USB dongle would be required.

Wifite assumes that you have a wireless card and the appropriate drivers that are patched for injection and promiscuous/monitor mode.


  1. sorts targets by signal strength (in dB); cracks closest access points first

  2. automatically de-authenticates clients of hidden networks to reveal SSIDs

  3. numerous filters to specify exactly what to attack (WEP/WPA/both, above certain signal strengths, channels, etc)

  4. customizable settings (timeouts, packets/sec, etc)

  5. “anonymous” feature; changes MAC to a random address before attacking, then changes back when attacks are complete

  6. all captured WPA handshakes are backed up to wifite current directory

  7. smart WPA de-authentication; cycles between all clients and broadcast deauths

  8. stop any attack with Ctrl+C, with options to continue, move onto the next target, skip to cracking, or exit

  9. displays session summary at exit; shows any cracked keys

  10. all passwords saved to cracked.txt
