Wireless Password Recovery - preliminary recovery


Preliminary recovery

Preliminary recovery (developed in our company) is quite effective against short, simple, dictionary, repetitive, keyboard, etc. passwords and consists of several mini-modules. You can turn on/off each mini-attack separately.

Preliminary attack runs about 5-10 minutes or even faster.

Mini-modules of the Preliminary recovery:

  • Attack against SSID names. Verify various combinations of the wireless network name.
  • Dates attack. Checks passwords that were based on date. For example, 12031994.
  • Simple dictionary attack. Fast check the password by verifying all words from a given wordlist.
  • Attack on repeatables. Checking passwords as a repeatable sequence of a character. Eg. '1111111' or 'xxxxxxx'.
  • Attack on simple character patterns, like '123456' or 'qwerty'.
  • Keyboard attack looks for keyboard passwords and all possible combinations. Eg. 'qwer', 'qazwsx', 'asdzxc', etc.
  • Complex keyboard attack is the same as the previous 2 attacks but checks compound keyboard patterns.
  • Smart keyboard attack guesses complicated keyboard combinations.
  • Passcape Password Prediction attack is the most complicated and state-of-art password prediction tool.
  • Attack passwords based on numbers.
  • Guess passwords based on MAC address
