Hack WPA & WPA2 Wi-Fi passwords with a Pixie-Dust attack using Airgeddon

If you're squaring up against a WPA or WPA2 network with a strong password, you may feel like you're at the end of your options if you can't brute-force or social engineer the password. Fortunately, many routers have a flaw in the WPS setup pin feature that makes bypassing any WPA based security trivial.

Using a tool called Bully, we can exploit weak entropy in the keys many routers use to encrypt the WPS pin, allowing us to break the WPS setup pin in vulnerable routers to dump the Wi-Fi password. We will use the WPS Pixie-Dust attack option in the Airgeddon wireless attack framework, as it gives us the most flexibility in selecting and attacking targets.
