I'm using airlib-ng and crunch to generate password Database and use that Password Database in aircrack-ng to crack the Captured Handshake of a WPA2 Wireless Network.
Here are my terminal Commands and Output -
root@VAIO-PC:~/Desktop/files# crunch 8 8 1234567890abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz --stdout | airolib-ng testdb -import passwd - Crunch will now generate the following amount of data: 25389989167104 bytes 24213780 MB 23646 GB 23 TB 0 PB Crunch will now generate the following number of lines: 2821109907456 Database <testdb> does not already exist, creating it... Database <testdb> successfully created Reading file... ^CCrunch ending at 1111y3z4id lines ignored. root@VAIO-PC:~/Desktop/files# clear
Now, I've generated a testdb which I'll be using with
-r switch to crack the handshake file (*.cap).
root@VAIO-PC:~/Desktop/files# aircrack-ng '/root/Desktop/hs/TEST-NET.cap' -r '/root/Desktop/files/testdb' Opening /root/Desktop/hs/TEST-NET.cap Read 4 packets. # BSSID ESSID Encryption 1 AA:8E:E8:04:02:EE TEST-NET WPA (1 handshake) Choosing first network as target. Opening /root/Desktop/hs/TEST-NET (copy).cap Reading packets, please wait... Aircrack-ng 1.2 rc4 Quitting aircrack-ng... root@VAIO-PC:~/Desktop/files#
But it quits for an unexpected reason, can anyone here tell me the problem here? Also a .journal file gets deleted. I dunno what's the problem, I tried searching in forums and other website but I didn't find much help regarding this.
Related - https://tools.kali.org/wireless-attacks/airolib-ng but it uses a wordlist instead of generating them using crunch.
I think that the password database file is about 50mb and the text password is more that 500 mb, so is my PC running so fast that it completes the whole process in wink of an eye?
