Are you looking to find the WPS WiFi password on your Linux system? Look no further! In this guide, we will walk you through the process of using the Wash tool to find the WPS WiFi password on Linux.
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a network security standard that allows users to easily connect to a WiFi network without having to enter a password. However, this convenience comes with a potential security risk, as the WPS PIN can be easily cracked by an attacker.
The Wash tool is a command-line utility that can be used to scan for WPS-enabled WiFi networks and retrieve their WPS PIN. Here’s how you can use it:
Step 1: Install the Wash Tool
The first step is to install the Wash tool on your Linux system. Open a terminal and run the following command:
sudo apt-get install reaver
sudo wash -i wlan0
Replace ‘wlan0‘ with the interface name of your WiFi adapter. The tool will display a list of available WiFi networks along with their WPS status.
Step 3: Retrieve the WPS PIN
Now that you have a list of WPS-enabled WiFi networks, you can use the Wash tool to retrieve their WPS PIN. Run the following command:
sudo wash -i wlan0 -C -b
Replace ‘wlan0‘ with the interface name of your WiFi adapter and ‘<BSSID>‘ with the BSSID (MAC address) of the target network. The tool will attempt to retrieve the WPS PIN for the specified network.
Step 4: Crack the WPS PIN
Once you have the WPS PIN, you can use it to crack the WiFi password using a tool like Reaver. Run the following command:
sudo reaver -i wlan0 -b -p
Replace ‘wlan0’ with the interface name of your WiFi adapter, ‘<BSSID>’ with the BSSID (MAC address) of the target network, and ‘<WPS PIN>’ with the retrieved WPS PIN. The tool will attempt to crack the WiFi password using the WPS PIN.
It’s important to note that attempting to crack someone else’s WiFi password without their permission is illegal and unethical. Make sure you only use these tools for educational purposes or with the proper authorization.
That’s it! You now know how to find the WPS WiFi password using the Wash tool on Linux. Remember to always use this knowledge responsibly and respect the privacy of others.
