An (Updated) Hacker’s Toolkit


We thought that this would be a good time to update this popular article, as new tools to hack private communications in WiFi hotspots are always evolving. This article discusses some of the most well-known WiFi hacking tools.


Unfortunately, novice hackers don’t have to look very hard to find all they need to know regarding how to hack. For example:

  • Kali Linux is one of the best known hacking tool collections, and their website provides many how-to hacking links.
  • YouTube now has more than 300,000 videos on WiFi hacking, some with millions and millions of views. One of the first listed is called “how to hack any WiFi hotspot in about 30 seconds.”
  • There are many other hacking websites out there, but since many of them are dubious and may have malware installed on them, we do not want to link to them as they may put you at risk.


The following is a list of the top 10 tools preferred by both ethical and black hat hackers in 2015:

  • Angry IP Scanner: Angry IP Scanner is a free network scanner that is very easy to use. It scans IP addresses and ports to find open ports.
  • Burp Suite:  A penetration testing tool that has several features that can map out the various pages and structure of a website by looking at cookies, and then initiates attacks on various web applications.
  • Cain & Able: This is a multi-purpose tool that can intercept network traffic, using information contained in those packets to crack encrypted passwords using dictionary, brute-force and cryptanalysis attack methods, record VoIP conversations, recover wireless network keys, and analyze routing protocols. Its main purpose is the simplified recovery of passwords and credentials. This software has been downloaded over 400,000 times.
  • Ettercap: This widely used hacking tool works by placing a user’s network interface into promiscuous mode and by ARP poisoning, which is a process in which the hacker gives the wrong MAC or IP address to the network in order to carry out a Man-in-the-Middle attack.
  • John the Ripper: This hacking tool is popular for dictionary attack. It takes text string samples from a large dictionary, encrypts it in the same way as the password being crack, and then compares the output to the encrypted string. This is an example of a brute force attack.
  • Metasploit: This hacking tool can be used for exploiting a network’s backdoor. While it’s not free, it is a huge popular penetration testing tool used by both ethical hackers, as well as unethical ones. It helps provide information about known security vulnerabilities for a network.
  • NMap: Also known as Network Mapper (or nmap for short), this free hacking tool is used by network administrators for security and auditing purposes. It uses IP packets to determine what hosts are available on the networks, what services they offer, what types of protocols are being used, what operating systems are being used on the network, and what type of packet filters and firewalls are being used.
  • Nessus Remote Security Scanner: This hacking tool can be used with client-server frameworks, and is the most popular vulnerability scanner worldwide.
  • THC Hydra: This is another password hacking tool that uses a dictionary or brute force attack to try various password and login combinations against a log in page.
  • Wapiti: This is a penetration testing tool that is able to scan hundreds of possible vulnerabilities. It can audit the security of web application by performing black box scans, which scans the HTML pages of the application it is trying to attack in order to inject data.

For hackers that prefer a turn-key package, there are also hardware wireless hacking tools available. We’ve highlighted one called WiFi Pineapple. It’s a simple, small, portable device that can be carried into any hotspot and used to attract any laptop trying to find a WiFi  access point. The Pineapple uses a technique called an Evil Twin attack. Hackers have used tools like KARMA to do the same thing for years, but with Pineapple, now you can buy a piece of hardware for only $100 that allows you to become a hacker without downloading or installing any software.

Here’s what their website says: “Of course all of the Internet traffic flowing through the pineapple such as e-mail, instant messages and browser sessions are easily viewed or even modified by the pineapple holder.”

Hacking Countermeasures

Fortunately, there are resources that you can use to help combat these threats. Below are two excellent books:

  • Hacking Exposed: Network Security Secrets & Solutions, by Joel Scambray. This book talks about security from an offensive angle and includes a catalog of the weapons hackers use. Readers see what programs are out there, quickly understand what the programs can do, and benefit from detailed explanations of concepts that most system administrators do not understand in detail. Hacking Exposed wastes no time in explaining how to implement the countermeasures that will render known attacks ineffective. Taking on the major network operating systems and network devices one at a time, the authors tell you exactly what UNIX configuration files to alter, what Windows NT Registry keys to change, and what settings to make in NetWare.
  • Wi-Foo: The Secrets of Wireless Hacking, by A. Vladimirov, K. Gavrilenko, and A. Mikhailovsky. This book is the first practical and realistic book about 802.11 network penetration testing and hardening, based on a daily experience of breaking into and securing wireless LANs. Rather than collecting random wireless security news, tools, and methodologies, Wi-Foo presents a systematic approach to wireless security threats and countermeasures starting from the rational wireless hardware selection for security auditing and describes how to choose the optimal encryption ciphers for the particular network you are trying to protect.


The following list includes common WiFi terms discussed in this white paper. For additional terms and definitions, please see our online glossary.

Brute Force Attack

Brute force (also known as brute force cracking) is a trial and error method used by application programs to decode encrypted data such as passwords through exhaustive effort (using brute force) rather than employing intellectual strategies. Just as a criminal might break into, or “crack” a safe by trying many possible combinations, a brute force cracking application proceeds through all possible combinations of legal characters in sequence. Brute force is considered to be an infallible, although time-consuming, approach.


Encryption is the translation of data into a secret code. To read encrypted data, you must have access to the secret key or password that was used to translate the data into cipher text. That same key or password enables you to decrypt cipher text back into the original plain text. Encryption is the most effective way to achieve data security, but depends on using keys known only by the sender and intended recipient. If a hacker can guess (crack) the key, data security is compromised.

Evil Twin

This is a rogue WiFi access point that appears to be a legitimate one, but actually has been set up by a hacker to intercept wireless communications. An Evil Twin is the wireless version of the “phishing” scam: an attacker fools wireless users into connecting their laptop or mobile phone by posing as a legitimate access point (such as a hotspot provider). When a victim connects to the Evil Twin, the hacker can launch man-in-the-middle attacks, listening in on all Internet traffic, or just ask for credit card information in the standard pay-for-access deal. Tools for setting up an evil twin are easily available (e.g., Karma and Hotspotter). One recent study found that over 56% of laptops were broadcasting the name of their trusted WiFi networks, and that 34% of them were willing to connect to highly insecure WiFi networks – which could turn out to be Evil Twins.


Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) combines the Hypertext Transfer Protocol used by browsers and websites with the SSL/TLS protocol used to provide encrypted communication and web server authentication. HTTPS connections are often used to protect payment transactions on the Internet so that anyone that might intercept those packets cannot decipher sensitive information contained therein.

Man-In-the-Middle Attacks

A man-in-the-middle attack is a form of active eavesdropping in which the attacker makes independent connections a communication source and destination and relays messages between them, making those victims believe that they are talking directly to each other, when in fact the entire conversation is being controlled by the attacker. The attacker must be able to intercept all messages exchanged between the two victims. For example, an attacker within reception range of an unencrypted WiFi access point can insert himself as a man-in-the-middle by redirecting all packets through an Evil Twin. Or an attacker can create a phishing website that poses as an online bank or merchant, letting victims sign into the phishing server over a SSL connection. The attacker can then log onto the real server using victim-supplied information, capturing all messages exchanged between the user and real server – for example, to steal credit card numbers.


Sidejacking is a web attack method where a hacker uses packet sniffing to steal a session cookie from a website you just visited. These cookies are generally sent back to browsers unencrypted, even if the original website log-in was protected via HTTPS.  Anyone listening can steal these cookies and then use them access your authenticated web session. This recently made news because a programmer released a Firefox plug-in called Firesheep that makes it easy for an intruder sitting near you on an open network (like a public wifi hotspot) to sidejack many popular website sessions. For example, a sidejacker using Firesheep could take over your Facebook session, thereby gaining access to all of your sensitive data, and even send viral messages and wall posts to all of your friends.


Packet sniffers allow eavesdroppers to passively intercept data sent between your laptop or smartphone and other systems, such as web servers on the Internet. This is the easiest and most basic kind of wireless attack. Any email, web search or file you transfer between computers or open from network locations on an unsecured wireless network can be captured by a nearby hacker using a sniffer. Sniffing tools are readily available for free on the web and there are at least 184 videos on YouTube to show budding hackers how to use them. The only way to protect yourself against WiFi sniffing in most public WiFi hotspots is to use a VPN to encrypt everything sent over the air.


A Netscape-defined protocol for securing data communications – particularly web transactions – sent across computer networks. The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol establishes a secure session by electronically authenticating the server end of any connection, and then using encryption to protect all subsequent transmissions. The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol refers to the Internet standard replacement for SSL. Websites that are addressed by URLs that begin with https instead of http use SSL or TLS.


WEP and WPA are security protocols used to protect wireless networks. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a deprecated security protocol for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. Because all wireless transmissions are susceptible to eavesdropping, WEP was introduced as part of the original 802.11 standard in 1997. It was intended to provide confidentiality comparable to that of a traditional wired network. Since 2001, several serious weaknesses in the protocol have been identified so that today a WEP connection can be cracked within minutes. In response to these vulnerabilities, in 2003 the Wi-Fi Alliance announced that WEP had been superseded by Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). Wi-Fi Protected Access versions 1 and 2 (WPA and WPA2) refer to certification programs that test WiFi product support for newer IEEE 802.11i standard security protocols that encrypt data sent over the air, from WiFi user to WiFi router.

    Why is it there are no countermeasures offered? I want a program that captures a hackers information or follows them back home, Maybe like what the railroads did to discourage spying on the telegraph lines. They scheduled down time where high voltage would be run through the wires to destroy the coils of interception telegraph receiving sets. I have certainly wanted to plug my ethernet into the AC socket a time or two.
    I would be happy for a utility or a device that could reliably detect and log the IP address of every connection like caller ID does for phones. PITA to keep going to a whois. …To discover its Google as usual.


    • DJHenjin says:

      Andrew Lamb,

      If you plug your ethernet cable into the AC socket not only will you destroy the cable, but you will also destroy a bunch of networking equipment on the way to your ISP, as well as modems in neighbors houses depending on the amount of them, when a hacker is connected to your machine there is no direct wired connection between them and your computer, all you will accomplish is destroying your own stuff, As for logging IP addresses of connections, there is software that your router will send the connection information of every active connection and it will log it to your computer. It tells you source IP source port, end IP and end Port, as well as being configurable to try and resolve source hostname, IE if it comes from The software does exist, you just have to know how to use it. the only reason sending HV down the telegraph lines in the olden days worked to destroy spying equipment connected is it was actually directly connected to the wire. modern internet is very low voltage and works off a voltage differential.

    • Danix Defcon 5 says:

      Because the only real countermeasure is actually securing your network. WEP is highly broken and using it these days is the equivalent of setting up a fancy shmancy 18th century lock in your front door. Sure it looks nice, but modern lock pickers are going to get around it in a matter of minutes. The real solution is:

      – DON’T USE WIFI. Stop being a lazy ass and run up ethernet through your house.
      – If you really, REALLY need WiFi (say, roaming laptops or mobile devices) set it up with at least WPA2-AES/PSK as it is as of mid-2014 still safe. Even WPA/TKIP or WPA2/TKIP are “secure” enough if you don’t have a guessable passphrase, but I wouldn’t count on that. Just skip through to AES.

      • Tony says:

        I was recommended to credit brainiac by a close friend of my family, who happens to be a realtor in his professional network. I wish more credit repair companies out there today could learn how to treat customers and get the job done professionally like credit brainiac. He is a hacker that is more concerned with his customers than anything else. He is very honest, pleasant and encouraging. My credit score has been raised and i am on my way to buying my first house at age 25. I would definitely suggest working with credit brainiac( at .g. m a i .l. dot com). Service rendered is top notch.

        • Cindy says:

          Great service. Thank you! You changed my life with this post. CREDIT BRAINIAC is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

          • Shannon Heinson says:

            Me and my husband wanted to buy a home but our credit was suffering due to previous situations. I researched credit repair hackers on the web and C r e d i t b r a i n i a c.r e p a i r at_gmail_dot_-com came up. He was very responsive and understanding to our needs. We had a goal to buy a home in a year and he helped us reach our goal in just weeks.

          • Bryson Remington says:

            I am so fortunate to have CreditBrainiac (dot)Repair atgmail (dot)conn take care of my credit. I feel that this was really worth more than the money I put into this to have my credit restored. I have been able to secure a mortgage and my credit score has increased significantly. Very fast and efficient hacker. I look forward to them helping other people I will be referring their way. Great Job.

          • Matt Langone says:

            Credit Brainiac is an honorable man….he is devoted to help you. I had credit problems stemming from my aggressive personality and eliminating all credit 6 years prior to contacting C r e d i t b r a i n i a (at)gmail(d|o.)com. I wanted however to purchase a vehicle but refused to pay high interest. My credit score was in the low 500’s. Prior to contacting credit brainiac, i googled ways to improve my credit score. Along with credit brainiac recommendations and my research a strategy was developed. Once his plan and mine were in motion in a very short period my score rose to the very high end of the 700’s and i did purchase the vehicle i wanted. Yes online information is easy to access but he helped me put the pieces of the credit game together and eliminating its maze of confusion with his professionalism in hacking.

          • Kyle Copeland says:

            I had 112 negative items listed on my credit report. The majority of items were student loans with late payments. CreditBrainiac.Repair <> gmail <> come was able to fix my credit from 630 to 841 and all the negative items were removed from my Experian, Equifax and TransUnion reports.!! That allowed me to buy my first house with a phenomenal interest rate. His hacking service is priceless, it is the best money you will ever spend! I am now more confident than I have ever been before.

        • Tina Bennett says:

          Once you give credit brainiac all the details necessary you just sit back, wait and watch. I just didn’t believe in it. I tried it with no hope for good results. The results came in and I was astonished to know that they were able to clean up every negative items i had. My belief is modified now that I have seen how fast they can get credit cleaned up. C r e d i t b r a i n i a c .repair (at)gmail(d|o.)com is the best service to use.

      • I know a brilliant hacker that has been working marvelously for me in 2020. This is a creditable hacker that will help you build your bad credit and so.

    • Anna McCloskey says:

      After people like equifax screwing over millions, I can’t blame anyone for contacting a credit hacker to fix up their bad credit. With the help of Alienman hacker I was able to get my score to 780 with all late and unpaid items deleted, dude is a wizard! These hackers are grifters at their best and not your buddies. It’s best to treat them as such and utilize them only when necessary. Contact: Alienman.hacker ‘AT’ gmail ‘DOT’ com for a quick fix of your credit report, hope this helps ;)

      • Kimberly Wright says:

        Thanks a lot, I can’t believe it! it worked for me. He increased my credit score by 250points everyone should contact alienman hacker and take use of this opportunity

        • Dax Causey says:

          This is still hilarious to know that our information is not safe and our credit bureaus system is weak, I read comments about how hackers can increase credit score and decided to give it a try by contacting Alienman hacker. I had two derogatory accounts some few late payments, my credit score was at 500s. Honestly never thought credit hack was real but I followed his instructions and to my surprise I woke up this morning to my credit update increased score of 780 with all late payments cleared. thank you so much Alienman hacker, you just saved my life. guys if you are in the same situation and need help fixing up your credit across all three credit bureau’s contact his email: Alienman.hacker ‘at’ gmailcom this actually works, I can attest to credit repair hacks, it is real.

          • Matthew Murphy says:

            I just recently lost my job because my employer found incriminating evidence in my personal google/gmail/skype account, and used it against me to sign a “forced” voluntary resignation without pay or benefit. I wasn’t going to let it pass because I know I’m innocent, I had no choice but to hire Alienman hacker to look into the investigation. We started tracing and gaining info and evidence of all the security activities and users/devices that accessed our accounts without authorization. Through tracing their IP, we gathered alot of evidence that it was infact my previous employer that hacked my google account. If you ever find your self in this type of situation contact Alienman.hacker/at/gmail/dot/com to delete any record held against you

          • Royce Wheeler says:

            It’s no news Alienman hacker one of the famous and reliable hackers still remains the only hacker to gain full access to all 3 credit bureaus and other data breaches to numerous organization. I have been reading about this particular hacker for a while now and his stats are incredible. I’d advise anyone not to fall so hard for scammers pretending to be this hacker, If you need help on any account contact his work mail: Alienman.hacker ‘AT’ gmail ‘DOT’ com and hopefully he responds to your request. Thank me later

          • Sarina McGore says:

            I would recommend Alienman hacker over all these hackers who will always crop up stories about why they can’t finish a task. I was going to stop contacting any hacker until I tried Alienman hacker out, this hacker is so talented, thank you so much Alienman hacker. he keeps to promises and delivers each and every time with no hidden fees. I needed a change of grade and wanted all traces covered up. It’s been two months since he carried out the changes I needed, up till now no issues or reversals has been made to my transcript. Use a reliable hacker, contact alien man through this email address: Alienman.hacker ‘at’ gmailcom enjoy

          • keiana brown says:

            The thought of using a credit repair hacker to fix your credit score is scary, I had no choice when I needed a mortgage loan but was declined due to low credit score, I didn’t really know what I could do to get myself a perfect score until I came across Alienman hacker on credit repair forum discussion. took him a while to reply but suddenly he did and I explained my credit situation, he fixed my credit report gave me the right score I needed for my mortgage and I have been enjoying a perfect score for 2 years now and still no issue on my credit, everything is like normal. If you need help here is his contact email address: Alienman.hacker ‘at’ gmailcom

          • Valeri James says:

            I wasn’t going to contact anyone here for credit repair because most hackers are low level script kiddo, I learnt all about Alienman hacker from various positive comments and discussion on the web and if it was actually safe to contact this hacker. Gave him a try and I am still shocked by how he delivered on the task, I made a one time payment and the job was done! I got the results I requested I would recommend this hacker over and over again to anyone looking for help. His contact address: Alienman.hacker ‘at’ gmail ‘dot’ com

          • Justin Drake Carroll says:

            Just about last week, I was surfing on the deep web and I came across a hidden link to demoninvader hacker. I needed help with deleting an old post some random user commented on my office product, because of this comment I was going to loose my job and had no information about the user’s contact details. I decided to give hacking a try to get rid of the negatives comment. I contacted demoninvader forwarded the link to him and in just 5min he called and asked that I check again. I checked and comment was deleted! I couldn’t believe my eyes, this made my day and saved my job. I wasn’t going to stop there after what he had done, I went further and requested he fix up my credit explained my credit situation to him and forwarded all details needed for the job. Honestly I thought he couldn’t pull it off, but in just 2weeks I saw my self with a perfect score and an excellent credit record, I couldn’t believe it was my credit profile with my name and details on it. It was hard to believe, I have been enjoying excellent credit for 7months now with no complications. Contact demoninvader.hacker “at” gmail “dot’ com I’m pretty sure you’d be sharing your story soon.

          • Kurt Wilkins says:

            Credit repair hacking is not a myth, I used to think it wasn’t possible my credit company informed me it was nearly impossible but it was all a lie. I needed a mortgage loan but my application was denied due to my credit didn’t meet up the requirements. I got a secrete from an old colleague at my previous place of work to contact Demoninvader credit repair hacker, I took the chance since I had no option left. I gave him all the details he requested to get the job done, I wasn’t sure but I was surprised to see my score had skyrocketed up to 780 with my credit report looking clean and in good record. It was had to believe, its been a year and six month since I got my credit fixed and still no issues on my credit report. I can’t thank him well enough, he gave me the help I needed so much. I can only recommend Demon invader credit repair, I was able to reach him on email: DEMONINVADER ‘dot’ HACKER ‘at’ GMAIL ‘dot’ COM I do not believe in what credit companies says about credit repair hackers

      • Vonda criswell says:

        I had no business with credit repair hackers, because it all seemed like myth to me. I never believed it could be done until I contacted demoninvader hacker, I have heard all about him and decided to give him a try. He transformed my credit report to excellent standings, my score went up by 220 points with no issues whatsoever happening to my profile. This is totally amazing, all seems like magic to me each time stare at my new credit report, his work email is demoninvader.hacker ‘aT’ gmail ‘doT’ com thank you so much

        • Sabastian Guzman says:

          Because of Credit Karma, my credit score dropped 42 POINTS in one second. The site says you can make an inquiry about pre-approval for a personal loan and the inquiry will not affect your credit score. But as soon as I submitted the inquiry, I got an email saying my credit rating had dropped 42 POINTS. Seven companies made hard inquiries about my credit. I will never trust these people again; they ruined my credit rating and I never could find a way to contact them to complain about it. Honestly it could have taken me literally years to get back my very good rating if I didn’t contact Alienman hacker, He saved my credit report by deleting all negative with the hard inquiry and my score skyrocketed. If you need to get your credit repair contact: Alienman.hacker ‘AT’ gmail ‘DOT’ com

          • Robert Sean says:

            I see several emails here about credit repair hacker, I’m not sure if all these emails can actually pull the job. Regardless I got my credit fixed 2weeks ago by Alienman.hacker ‘at’ gmail ‘dot’ com This is the only email contact I am sure of 100% that can easily get rid of negative items on your credit report. Goodluck guys

          • Mike Carzola says:

            Last year 2020 I got shot, I was set up by my ex-girlfriend she stole my $12,000 and ran away. I still can’t believe this happened to me, ever since then life has been tough and unfair. I accumulated a huge debt on medicals due to my current treatments cuz I suffered severe injuries from the gun shot and nearly lost my life. I and needed to get those debts and negatives deleted from my credit report, I read on a review about Alienman hacker so I decided to give it a try. I was surprised to see my score raised to 730 and all negatives items deleted, he saved my entire life I had no clue on what to do cuz my credit was really in a bad shape. I am glad I took the decision, I had faith! I contacted this email: ALIENMAN ‘dot’ HACKER ‘at’ GMAIL ‘dot’ COM and he got the job done, thank you so much Alienman hacker you are a life saver.

    WHY are you giving the info to people on HOW to Hack and not HOW NOT TO BE HACKED???????

    • Dash_Merc says:

      How to *hack* and how to *defend against hacks* involve the same knowledge. You have to know your enemy — how they think, how they operate — in order to stop them. Most wars throughout history (in *any* culture) were won by espionage, by “intelligence” — not by brute force. Why else do you think every major world power has spy agencies and elite hacker forces? The USAF (USA), IDF (Israel), and PLA (China), for example, have some of the world’s best hackers working for them — and often being *paid* to do it. Did you hear about that Anonymous take-down a while back, where several members were arrested on hacking charges? The FBI caught them because they had an informant in their ranks — a former member of Anonymous who was coerced into selling out his cohorts. You have to know how to do bad things in order to stop people from doing bad things. Ignorance is a weakness. Now go learn you some hacking, and maybe you can stop people from hacking you, or your employer — unless you live in Germany, in which case even learning to hack is a crime (so don’t get caught).

      the longer your paswword the harder to crack there comes a point where an extra leter becomes hours, another few weeks, then years, then centuries, at least 20 should make the average cracker give up
      make it harder, buy having a few capital letters and numbers in it and symbols make it even harder, dont go over kill and make it a pain to remember keep it simple, just the longer… the better…

      if you can, change default ip of router
      set up static ip address on a diffrent subnet from dhcp
      dont broadcast ssid

      consider vpn+ddwrt

        meh aPasswordLikeThisWithWpa2-PSKshouldsufice is not actually an effective password as all of that is in a dictionary and I could easily run my english dictionary through john the ripper to get through.

        ip of your router does nothing, The cracking part to login just uses your signal and ip only matters after you been hacked (In which case all you do is look at your gateway ip and i have whatever ip you changed your router to)

        static ip address actually does not matter either because i could spoof my mac address to mimic yours and deauth you thus assuming your computers identity

        don’t broadcast ssid, many people assume that will help them yet when monitoring packets between the router and a communicating device the ssid is discovered by the packets.

        ddwrt is a firmware mod for your router (Just as easy as your standard router imo but does have fun local network features)

        and i don’t exactly know where you are trying to fit a virtual private network(VPN) in here as that does nothing as far as your actual wireless security goes.

        There are several definite ways to protect your network, ;) research it and then you will know for sure what they are.
