Crack a Wi-Fi Network’s WEP Password with BackTrack, the Fancy Video Version [Wi-Fi]

January 30th, 2010 · No Comments

Last summer we detailed how to crack a Wi-Fi network’s WEP password using BackTrack. Now video blog Tinkernut revisits the subject with a great video step-by-step of the process.

Before you go calling the cops or putting on your bank robber mask, a helpful reminder from our original post:

Knowledge is power, but power doesn’t mean you should be a jerk, or do anything illegal. Knowing how to pick a lock doesn’t make you a thief. Consider this post educational, or a proof-of-concept intellectual exercise.

BackTrack has also updated to version 4 since we last featured it, but the process appears to have remained basically the same. The interesting thing about BackTrack is how easy it is to crack a WEP-encrypted network, which serves as a very good reminder to use WPA encryption to significantly boost your home network security.
