6 Dec 2022Now using GitHub DiscussionsWe're moving from our old trusty forum to GitHub Discussions partly due to the maintenance burden, which means new posts should be opened in the Discussions tab of our repository.

The old forum will become a static archive so the links to the posts won't become 404.
10 May 2022Aircrack-ng 1.7After more than 2 years, we are making a release with a decently large amount of fixes, improvements, and additions. We also broke the 4000 commits barrier, and this release has more than 400 commits.

Read more in our detailed blog post or head to the download section.
13 Apr 'any/any' changeOur packages are now compatible with any distribution that supports .deb or .rpm packages. If you are using them, due to this change, you will have to reinstall the repository to keep receiving updates. Head over to our blog post for all the details.
5 Jul 2021Libera ChatDue to the freenode debacle, we decided to move our IRC channel to Libera Chat. The name of the channel is still the same as before: #aircrack-ng.
25 Jan 2020Aircrack-ng 1.6This release brings a ton of improvements. Along with bug fixes and improvements for a lot of tools, we have huge improvements under the hood thanks to code cleanup, deduplication, and reorganization of the source code. We also improved our buildbot, and addedd integration tests.

The most notable changes are in Airodump-ng, it now sees WPA3 and OWE. Its rates now takes into account 802.11n/ac and aren't limited to 54Mbit anymore. It has PMKID detection, and basic UTF-8 support among other things.

Many more details can be found in our blog post.
09 Dec 2018Aircrack-ng 1.5.2Fourth and last release of the year. It is smaller than the previous one but we did want to release the fixes and improvements before the holidays so it will be available for Shmoocon next month in your favorite distro. Small issues were found in 1.5 and then in 1.5.1, which is why we ended up with 1.5.2.

It brings fixes, a new feature and lots of improvements. More details in our blog post.
07 Nov 2018Blog post: Continuous Integration/Contious DeliveryWe have been using a lot of different tools and fined tuned them to provide us better and better information which has contributed to increase code quality over time. This blog post gives an overview of our current CI/CD infrastructure and some future improvements we are working on.
15 Oct 2018Blog post: Using Qemu to run a Big Endian Debian systemPCAP, IVS and hashcat capture files contain headers that store timestamps and other fields as integer values. In most cases, we're dealing with the same endianness (little), so this isn't too big of a deal but when a program needs to run on both big and little endian, values needs to be swapped to read the values as they were stored.

We have quite a few buildbots to handle a lot of test cases and while we're taking care of swapping for endianness in most cases, one bug slipped through the net. This is a good opportunity to create a MIPS big endian system using QEMU and Debian as a guest so we can possibly use it later on as another buildbot.
8 Oct 2018Blog post: Aircrack-ng packagesAs mentioned in our 1.4 release blog post, we are now providing package repositories for a number of Linux distributions: Debian, Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Fedora, RHEL, CentOS and a few others.

Getting this done for so many distributions (and multiple version of each) wasn't an easy feat but we're now automatically building packages for releases and, for the adventurous ones, each commit in our GitHub repository is packaged too, in a separate repository. Head to our blog post for more details and how to use it.

If you just want to install one of the repositories (git or release), head over to our repository.
29 Sep 2018Aircrack-ng 1.4We're on a roll, this is the third release of the year. We are still focusing a lot on code quality, while fixing bugs, improving all around and adding features:
- PMKID cracking
- Cracking capture files with 802.11w
- Speed and memory usage improvement when loading (large) files with Aircrack-ng and Airdecap-ng
- Packages for Linux distributions and Windows
- CI/CD tweaks and improvements
- New tests
More details can be found in our blog post.
16 Sep 2018Blog post: Debian and FreeBSD on QEMU with MMX-only CPUA recent bug (and PR) was opened, aircrack-ng couldn't be built with MMX using a i586 toolchain. Finding computers without SSE2 nowadays is not easy and it is even harder to find a distribution that supports them.
In this blog post, we use qemu to emulate a Pentium 2 and a Pentium MMX and use distributions that still work on them to test the bug.
10 Jul 2018Aircrack-ng 1.3We're bringing more good stuff in this release. We've been busy fixing bugs left and right, some of them thanks to Coverity Scan, valgrind and other static code analyzers.
We've also refactored some of the code and improved the code quality along the way. We can now successfully build across lot of platforms (Windows, Linux, BSD, OSX) and CPU architectures (x86 and 64 bit, ARM v7, ARM v8, PowerPC, etc).

The most notable changes are in Aircrack-ng. It gets a speed bump in most CPU architectures we support, the ability to pause/restore cracking session and using HCCAPx files.

Other tools also see improvements. All the details about them as well as pretty performance graphs, can be found in our blog post.
15 Apr 2018Aircrack-ng 1.2It's been way too long since the last stable release.

Compared to the last stable, 1.1, this release has a huge amount of improvements and fixes. The changelog since 1.1 is almost 300 lines long (1200+ commits). Code quality has improved, in parts thanks to Coverity Scan. We now switched to GitHub completely and have a few buildbots (including one for Windows) to test building and run the test suite on a different platforms.

Check out our blog post and changelog for more details.
3 Apr 2018Aircrack-ng 1.2 RC 5On top of tons of fixes and improvements everywhere (and on multiple platforms), this release switched to autotools which allows compiling on more platforms. A trampoline binary has been added for Aircrack-ng to automatically select the fastest version for your CPU features. It will also help package maintainers greatly.

A few other notable mentions:

- Airodump-ng supports setting HT40+/HT40- channels and now displays 802.11n and 802.11ac rates.
- Created WPA Enterprise WPE patches for HostAPd and Freeradius
- Support to export to HCCAPx for Hashcat v3.6+
- Added Airventriloquist-ng, a tool from Caesurus.
- Airmon-ng supports setting Nexmon devices in/out of monitor mode on Kali

Check out our changelog for more details. Longest since 1.2-beta1.
11 Mar 2018Blog post: Migration to GitHubWe finally made it completely, we migrated from trac and subversion to GitHub. It was far from a simple program to run and switch to GitHub, it was a lot more complex task. You can find more details on this blog post.
16 Oct 2017Blog post: KRACK WPA Vulnerability - Key Reinstallation AttaCKIn this blog post, the new KRACK vulnerability is explained: a brief summary, who's affected, what to do and links to resources related to the vulnerability.

TL;DR: Another day, another vulnerability, just patch your systems. It allows decryption of traffic but does not disclose the WPA key.
16 Aug 2017Blog post: On drivers, rtl8812au, WN722N, monitor mode, QCA6174, other news …In this blog post, we answer some common questions regarding various topics: using drivers, driver development, embedded chipsets, 802.11n/ac capture/injection, a few different current chipsets/drivers (rtl8812au, ath9k_htc, QCA6174), linux-backports (aka compat-wireless) and some other good news.
9 Aug 2017Blog post: lesser known features of Aircrack-ng: interactive mode and keysIn this blog post, we discuss another lesser known features of Aircrack-ng: interactive mode and keys in airodump-ng.
27 Mar 2017Blog post: lesser known features of Aircrack-ngIn this blog post, we discuss some lesser known features of Aircrack-ng such as reading compressed wordlists, rainbow tables and distributed cracking.
20 Feb 2017Blog post: iw monitor flagsWhen setting an interface in monitor mode manually, iw has a few different flags: none, fcsfail, control, otherbss, cook, active.
The meaning of those different flags are explained in the blog post.

TL;DR: use 'none'.
20 Jan 2017BlackHat USA trainingI'm really pleased to announce that Vivek Ramachandran and I will be teaching Advanced Wireless Exploitation at BlackHat USA this summer.
30 Nov 16Wireless Pawn Edition (WPE) patches updatedIf you want to attack WPA Enterprise, applying WPE patches to HostAPd or Freeradius would do the job. However, they haven't been updated in a long time and still used old software versions (HostAPd 2.2 and Freeradius 2.1 which is EOL).

It is no longer the case as they are now available for the latest and greatest version of HostAPd and Freeradius. We took the job upon ourselves to update them and keep updating them whenever a new versions get released. The icing on the cake is that both of them are available as packages in Kali and a tutorial for HostAPd-WPE has been created.

All the details as well as a link to the patches can be found in this blog post.
15 Feb 16Aircrack-ng compilation matricesI tried to compile Aircrack-ng on a 'few' systems and different CPUs to see how it works and I was quite surprised by the amount of systems it can be compiled on (and most of the time, it can be compiled with both gcc and clang).

More details (matrices) in the blog.
14 Feb 16Aircrack-ng 1.2 RC 4Fourth release candidate. There will be another one, some small bugs still need to be fixed but it should happen fairly soon. On top of a big speed increase (up to 175% increase) that also fixes compilation on Cygwin 64 bit, it includes a ton of fixes and improvements on Linux, *BSD, Solaris and Cygwin on x86 and Linux on ARM and MIPS.
30 Dec 15Cracking speed improvementsI recently put a bug bounty for anybody who can fix compilation on cygwin 64 bit. darkfires took up the challenge and fixed it. But he did a lot more than that and started fixing some other bugs and decided to bring Aircrack-ng up to date with current CPU and take advantages of AVX and AVX2 instructions to improve cracking speeds (up to 175% increase on Intel Skylake CPUs).

This was quite a challenge, but it got finally integrated into our subversion repository in r2800. You can read more about it in the blog. Please test it and send us feedback via the forum.
21 Nov 15Aircrack-ng 1.2 RC 3Third release candidate and hopefully this should be the last one. It contains a ton of bug fixes, code cleanup, improvements and compilation fixes everywhere. Some features were added: AppArmor profiles, better FreeBSD support, including an airmon-ng for FreeBSD.
10 Apr 2015Aircrack-ng 1.2 RC 2Here is the second release candidate. Along with a LOT of fixes, it improves the support for the Airodump-ng scan visualizer. Airmon-zc is mature and is now renamed to Airmon-ng. Also, Airtun-ng is now able to encrypt and decrypt WPA on top of WEP. Another big change is recent version of GPSd now work very well with Airodump-ng.
04 Apr 2015Training at BlackHat USAI will be teaching once again Advanced Wi-Fi Pentesting with Vivek Ramachandran at BlackHat Las Vegas this year. It's gonna be even better than last year!
31 Oct 2014Aircrack-ng 1.2 RC 1Here is the first release candidate. Exactly 7 month since the last beta. There will be most likely another one then the final release in the next few month.

Updating is highly recommend as this contains a lot of bug fixes and improvements as well as security fixes (CVE-2014-8321, CVE-2014-8322, CVE-2014-8323 and CVE-2014-8324). More details can be found in the blog.

14 Apr 2014Heartbleed vulnerability and Aircrack-ngI guess you all heard about that nasty vulnerability in OpenSSL. If not, you can read more about it on Wikipedia.

Aircrack-ng, the software itself, is not affected at all since it doesn't rely on heartbeat, so recompiling is not necessary.

Some parts of the website may have been affected (only if you had an account on it):
- Wiki
- Trac
If you are concerned, you can contact me about it. I will gladly help you change your password if you had an account on any of those 3 subdomains that might have been affected.

Now, the good news:
- OpenSSL libraries and SSL certificates have been updated (and my hosting provider for the wiki seems unaffacted).
- I haven't noticed any suspicious activity so far but I will continue to monitor.
- We are now using certificates from CAcert for almost all parts of (the wiki is on a shared hosting). In order to avoid your browser giving you a warning, please install the CAcert root certificate on your system.
- The forum didn't have HTTPS, so, it wasn't affected at all. Thanks to the new certificate, it is now accessible over HTTPS.
31 Mar 2014Aircrack-ng 1.2-beta3 releaseAnd a third beta. I can guarantee there will be at least a fourth one before the final 1.2 release.
Release Notes:
- Finally fixed the buffer overflow for good.
- Fixed issue with invalid channels when scanning (108, 125, etc) that was due to radiotap parsing.
- Updated radiotap parser to the latest git.
- Other small fixes.
30 Nov 2013Aircrack-ng 1.2-beta2 release Here is a second beta. Enjoy it ;-)
Release Notes:
- Compilation fixes on all supported OSes.
- Airbase-ng IE order fixed
- Improved WEP cracking speed using PTW
- Fixed WPA capture decryption when WMM is used
- Fixed memory leaks in several parts of the suite
- Fixed compilation with recent version of gcc, on cygwin and on Gentoo hardened
- Now using Coverity Scan for static code analysis
- Lots of other small fixes.
18 Sep 2013Recent decision by judge on WiFi sniffingIf you've been following me on twitter, you probably read a lot about the recent decision from the judge Jay S. Bybee of the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit saying Google violated the Wiretap law by collecting data from unencrypted WiFi networks while using their Street view cars. If you want more details, you can read a news article on TechDirt and here is a blog post about it.

12 Aug 2013BSides Las Vegas talkThe video of talk I did with Tod Beardsley, The Slings and Arrows of Open Source Security, at BSides Las Vegas is online thanks to Iron Geek.
31 May 2013New forumThe new forum is now available.
You'll have to register again since it is a brand new installation. If you had more than 100 posts in the old forum, use the same email address to register.

I wanted to reinstall the old one before I gave access to this one but my provider, OVH, doesn't let me access my backed up data on the forum server that crashed a few weeks ago. And it looks like I won't be able to reinstall before the end of June (or whatever time they roll out their new cloud).
Support told me they prevent starting VM instance which is probably the reason why the instance crashed in the first place; reboot wasn't allowed in the interface, so it decided to stop (and thus lose my data).
25 May 20131.2 Beta 1 ReleaseAfter a few years, we finally got a release: 1.2 Beta 1. Enjoy ;-)
Release Notes:
- Compilation fixes on all supported OSes.
- Makefile improvement and fixes.
- A lot of fixes and improvements on all tools and documentation.
- Fixed licensing issues.
- Added a few new tools and scripts (including distributed cracking tool).
- Fixed endianness and QoS issues.

Two more things:
- The forum will be ready in a few days.
- We are now using Travis CI for continuous integration.
20 May 2013Forum/Trac/SVN/GitHub/releaseTrac was migrated to a new server. URL didn't change and it is now also available via HTTPS.
Subversion has been moved to another server/URL: You can also use HTTPS but it's a self-signed certificate for now.
Just relocate your local copy and you're good to go.

The forum's cloud instance crashed a few weeks ago and the last backup I have is 10 month old. I am deeply sorry for the data loss. I wish I learned a different way to be more careful with backups but what is done is done :/
That backup will be available in read-only mode and I'll also install a brand new SMF.
There will be some announcements once the new forum is installed.

We also have a GitHub synced with our SVN thanks to clopez.

There will be a release (alpha or beta) this upcoming week-end. A lot of improvements and fixes have been done since the last release a few years ago and this is probably the longest changelog we've ever had.

More details about trac/svn and forum crash can be found in the blog.

More details can be found on the flyer and if you have any question, you can also contact me.
6 Jul 2012Trac/Subversion/Forum upI've been working the past week to make sure those services are safe to use and they're now up and running.
While it was down, I took the opportunity to migrate the forum to a new server that I hope more secure and with less issues for you.
You can find more details in the blog.
6 Jun 2012More about the forum virusI posted an update about the forum virus in the in the blog.

The Apache log didn't help much since it contained truncated request but the index.php file was modified and you can see the details of the modifications.

I also want to thank everybody who helped me so far :)
29 May 2012Forum virus detailsI have been investigating that forum virus and you can find more details in the blog. I'll keep that blog up to date as I know more about it.

To just summarize, it was uploaded through the forum on May 22 at 23h12 (11.12pm) GMT/UTC and I stopped the server on May 24, around 14h00 (2pm) when I got the notice about it. I'm really sorry if that piece of shitcode caused any issue. Let me know if that happened.
24 May 2012Forum virusWhen checking my email this morning, I was told there was a virus on the forum, JS/Iframe.DK to be precise.

For security reasons, I immediately shutted down the whole server when I got the email. It is not going to be back up before I know it is completely safe to use (and know what/how/when it happened). As far as I know, it probably happened between 6am and 2pm GMT today and I'm almost positive it is just one malicious forum post.

Trac/Subversion is also down so if you need the latest revision from subversion, you can always download it from our nightly build server.

I will keep you posted. I am really sorry for the inconvenience.
8 Apr 2012Aircrack-ng in moviesI'm happy to see that Aircrack-ng is used in movies; a friend of mine send me that screenshot this morning. Too bad they removed the beginning of the name but we can still recognize it easily and have a rough idea when it was shot. If you ever see it in any other movie, please let me know.

By the way, the news on April 1st was an April fools'.
1 Apr 2012WPA Flaw let us crack the PMK in a few minutesToday we are very proud to announce the we found a flaw that let us crack WPA in just a few minutes no matter what the passphrase length is. You can find more details in the blog.
5 Feb 2012Commercial support surveyWe are going to also offer commercial support (besides other existing support options) and I'd like to ask you to take 5 minutes of your time to give your opinion in this survey if you're interested in.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any question about it.
25 Jan 2012OpenWIPS-ng logo contestI launched a few months ago another project, OpenWIPS-ng, an Open Source Wireless IPS. We need a logo and that's why there's a contest. The prize for the winner is $250. More details on the website.
25 Jan 2012UpdatesI've seen a couple of post in the forum asking if the project was still alive since there was no update on the website. Yes it is still alive as you can see on trac and Twitter, I just haven't been updating the website.
By the way, you should use the version from our subversion instead of the stable, lots of things have changed.

For those on IRC, we finally got a cloak for the project. And it is not limited to the developpers of Aircrack-ng. So if you help others on a regular basis (in IRC or the forum) or if you did a significant contribution to the project (important fix or change), contact me to get yours ;-)
