An attacker with admin access to your wifi router can install a firmware "update" that contains any number of nasty things, such as a back-door for shell access or a secret password that will always allow access. Real life example: The DNSChanger trojan configured a rogue DNS server that would direct all of your advertising traffic to the DNSChanger team's ...

A DDoS attacks basically means the connection to your computer is saturated. There are several ways to do this but the result is the same: nobody can access your router and you may possibly not be able to go on Internet (roughly speaking). No hacking is involved, once the DDoS stops you recover (you many need to reboot your router). So this is not "hacking" ...

No. A DDoS attack would be generating thousands of log entries per second, not three entries over the course of 20 minutes. Like usual, your router is simply presenting minor events in the most alarming language possible to scare you into thinking it's doing something.

Based on the timestamps (1min 46sec & ~15min gaps between events), this is not a DDoS. This is about par for random DoS attempts against an exposed device on the Internet, such as your Netgear router. A DDoS would show many events flooding in at the same time... you would get lots of logged events per second, or at the very least hundreds per minute.

An open type WiFi connection is unencrypted and insecure by all means. Anyone can easily steal / monitor your data by sniffing packets in transit between your device and the wireless router hub /access point using many of the freely available packet sniffers. Unless you're using TLS, any and all data is in the clear for anyone to intercept and monitor. The ...

Everything you send over the network is visible to anyone near you. Even if they do use MAC filtering, it doesn't help -- with no encryption on the network, you're broadcasting every packet in the clear over radio. Any wifi card capable of monitor mode can record everything you send. As André mentioned in comments, this is also potentially vulnerable to ...

There are a few ways that you can detect if you are a victim of a MITM attack, where the attacker has the ability divert traffic and/or to create bogus certificates from a trusted CA. In the case where you are connecting to a host that you've previously connected to, certificate pinning can be used. With certificate pinning, your client stores the ...

Bonding two channels to the same AP is done. But you want to take it one big step further. You could perhaps do something of the kind using two wireless cards, two separate ESSIDs and some fancy footwork at kernel level (not all OSes would be able to do that), using bonding; or, even more complicated, by using two WiFi chips on a card that would simulate a ...

Not really, no. First, some terms. You mention ARP spoofing; this is not something you can detect at the IP level. ARP is what tells you which MAC address to address your frames to in order to send them to a given IP; ARP spoofing means you think you're sending them to the right IP, but your device addresses them to the attacker at the MAC layer. This can, ...

your Command aireplay-ng -0 0 -a 00:14:6C:7E:40:80 -c 00:0F:B5:34:30:30 mon0 is commrect. the -0 set the tool to send de-auth frames. the 0 after -0 means sends non-stop de-auth frames untill canceled with control + c. so if you have set the correct access point mac with the -a option and the correct Station ( STA ) Mac address witht the -c option, i hope ...

Try to stop Networkmanager: /etc/init.d/network-manager stop

This is a normal facebook page. They just redirected you to a "Company page", that actually looks quite different than your personal "feed" page. The wifi actually redirected you to this page: https://www.facebook.com/CityLifeAUS and its pretty common for Wifi's to redirect you to their custom "start page" after authentication as a form of advertisement. ...

But I have one question. What if I have a very large amount of csv file which was generated by Airodump-ng while i was running mon0 on the wifi network. I have done Access Point mapping and collected so many SSID, Hidden Network etc.. Till now I have only found this web based service which will provide us to visualize all the wireless network by category and ...
