WepAttack is an open source open source tool for hacking 802.11 WEP keys using a dictionary-based attack.
This tool is based on an active dictionary attack that tests millions of words to find the right key.
Only one package is required to launch an attack.

What is a WEP key?

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security algorithm for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. introduced as part of the original 802.11 standard, ratified in 1997, its goal was to ensure data confidentiality comparable to a confidential traditional wired network [1].
Now it is also used in old systems (old control systems, video surveillance systems, old sales systems, etc.).

Using WepAttack WEP Key Hacking Tool

WepAttack need a dump file to attack networks.
If network data is captured byKismet, thedump file is automatically generated.
This file is in the format “Kismet- [date] - [no] .dump” and can be transferred to WepAttack.


wepattack —f dumpfile [—m mode] [—w wordlist] [—n network]
—f dumpfile network dumpfile to read from
—m mode run WepAttack in different modes. If this option is not normal, all modes are executed sequentially (default)

64 WEP 64, ASCII mapping

128 WEP128, ASCII mapping

n64 WEP64, KEYGEN function

n128 WEP128, KEYGEN function

—w wordlist wordlist
, it can be used only one network. Default is attacking all available networks (recommended)
