Dear Forum! Loky here from Romania. I live in Transylvania, the region where Hungarian people live. I'm not sure how I ended up here, but I'll try to explain it briefly. Please, continue reading only if you like longer texts. One day I just had too much free time and I started wondering how many wireless networks are around my apartment. I live in an apartment house which has 20 apartments on four levels and it's surrounded by other apartment houses so there are a large number of homes in a relatively small area. So, I fired up inSSIDer and saw that there are at least 8 wireless networks that my laptop with its built-in 2.4 Ghz card can detect. This includes my own wireless router that's running OpenWRT. Then I said to myself, why don't I check which one belongs to who. I don't intend to make harm to anybody, I was just curious to take a peak here and there, check how much are my neighbors concerned about security. The good news is that all the networks were password protected. I started looking for "solutions" and I found Beini. Shortly after finding Beini, I read on Dishing Tech blog that "Beini is outdated, unsupported and lets face it super buggy." and I found info about Xiaopan. I then registered on this forum to be able to download Xiaopan. I made a bootable USB using Unetbootin with the help of the same Dishing Tech blog. I was ready to start experimenting with this security tool. First I tried with VirtualBox. The OS started and all looked well, but it didn't recognize the wireless card of the laptop . By the way the card is an Atheros AR5B195 which has a AR9285 wi-fi and in Aida64 it shows up as Atheros AR9002WB-1NG. Kind of complicated the names of these Atheros cards. I didn't really bother finding out why it didn't recognize it; instead I booted the laptop directly from the pendrive. Everything was working. I found a cool tutorial on YouTube made by Abysm. Very easy to follow and straightforward. I managed to capture the handshake on a WPA2 wireless network. Also, I tried minidwep; it took only 4 minutes to get the password of a WEP protected network. With minidwep I captured some more handshakes of WPA2 networks. All I need now is to try and crack the hash file. As I learned, capturing the hash file is quite easy, but cracking it needs the real knowledge. In my case I would need Hungarian dictionary, playing with Hungarian words as well as English and Romanian. These are all possibilities and I don't know as of today if it's worth the effort. I'm not sure if I will continue digging for info and software to crack WPA hash files, but nevertheless I learned quite a few exciting things about wireless networks and their security during the short time I was playing with Xiaopan. It's and excellent tool or OS, whatever you like calling it. Hats off to the people behind it. Please keep up the good work! PS: if anybody is having problems getting started with Xiaopan 0.4.7.2, then contact me and I'll try to help.
