I am currently working on some WiFi related security issues, and something appeared to me.
I have an Open WiFi network, to which a client connects.
I try the Deauth attack from Aireplay
aireplay-ng -0 0 -a 00:14:6C:7E:40:80 -c 00:0F:B5:34:30:30 mon0
However, this has no effect on the client nor the AP.
But, then I use MDK3 which is a software using the osdep library from the aircrack-ng project.
echo 00:14:6C:7E:40:80 > myfile
mdk3 mon0 d -b myfile -c 11
And it works instantly! I tried to use wireshark to see what MDK3 is sending but there is too much WiFi pollution around and I don't know what I am looking for, I can't figure out what to do with it.
I would like to know if they are both sending Deauth frames, and if so, what is the difference between them ?
Do I misunderstand the attack run by MDK3 and therefore, could you please explain it to me ?
