Hi! I can't get it to work...
I installed aircrack succesfully through Macports.

When I start the "capturing"/airport tool, it shows this and stays here: sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport en1 sniff 6
Macbook-Bram-4:~ bramstadhouders$ sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport en1 sniff 6
Password:
Capturing 802.11 frames on en1.

When I open the "crack" tool, it says this:

"/Users/bramstadhouders/Downloads/Wi-Fi Crack.app/Contents/Resources/aircrack-ng" -a 1 -b 1e:b0:94:a7:25:ac /private/tmp/airportSniff*.cap
Macbook-Bram-4:~ bramstadhouders$ "/Users/bramstadhouders/Downloads/Wi-Fi Crack.app/Contents/Resources/aircrack-ng" -a 1 -b 1e:b0:94:a7:25:ac /private/tmp/airportSniff*.cap
Opening /private/tmp/airportSniffX3wj3Z.cap
Opening /private/tmp/airportSniffYppE6d.cap
Opening /private/tmp/airportSniffkN86jl.cap
Opening /private/tmp/airportSniffr5ndMy.cap
Got no data packets from target network!

Hope someone knows how I can solve this?
Thanks!

Hello,
1st of all thank you so much for your powerful tool.. I've been saving IVs for 4 days (reaching about 300,000), but when I quit and reopened the app it all started from the beginning :( I tried to find the old airportSniff files in /private/tmp/ but it seems that they disappeared. Would you think of any way to get them back or should I just be patient and start again from the beginning?

Thanks in advance for your answer

Unfortuneately you have to start from the beginning. But unless you restart your computer your temporary files should still be there. A cool thing you can do is have the packet sniffer tool open and aircrack-ng open at the same time (make sure to have at least a couple hundred packets at least) and very 500 IVs aircrack will try to crack the packets again until it finds it. If you're cracking a network of some activity, then you should be able to sniff enough packets in 30 min.

Version 2.1 still does not work on OS 10.7. On my Late-2006 Intel 2.16 GHz iMac, after I've selected an interface (there's only one option -- en1) and clicked 'Next,' then clicked 'Scan' I always immediately get the error message "Parameter error."

Hello,

I'm experiencing the same issue as GeoProf with this new version.

I'm running 10.9.2 on a Macbook Pro Retina.

A great app. However, recently I discovered that the cracking function won't work. Whenever I initiate the crack command, I get the following error message in the Terminal:

Hmmmm, I cannot get Wi-Fi Crack to start up on a brand new Mac OS 10.7 installation on a Late-2006 iMac with an AirPort Extreme card. I installed OS 10.7 on a portable USB hard drive JUST so I could run Wi-Fi Crack (I just changed the startup disk), so I'm flummoxed that it won't work. I double-click on Wi-Fi Crack, and after the icon expands ....... nothin'.

Here's the console entries, in case anyone can help:

Any ideas? It's still impossible to contact the developer, so I must rely on the community here :)

No results when I scan, the interface i'm using is eh0, I can see WiFi networks via the network manager built into OSX though?

Given 5 stars as I can see from other reviews this product works, and it looks 1000% easier to use than doing it via a linux startup disk like I've tried before

This only works on WEP networks. Thats probably why you don't see any.

Any ideas about how to fix Wi-Fi Crack? I've already restarted the app and my Mac, fixed the permissions, repaired the drive, and used DiskWarrior on it, but to no avail.

Hi,
Is that possible to change the .cap files's directory (/private/tmp/*.cap) because I have to backup them before all restart/shutdown. Before they're purged

I was able to get things to work by using brew to install openssl and then copying over two library folders to the opt/local/lib folder. Seems to be working pretty well now. Also I think some of the users aren't waiting long enough after hitting ctrl+c in airport. It's a little sluggish to quit, but if you wait after you see the ^C it will close itself out nicely and return the wireless to its normal condition. It does not, however, choose your wireless network for you, but that's not a huge deal, and that's airport doing that, not the GUI. If you have the code posted anywhere, I'd be interested in poking through. I don't know much about Objective C, but this seems like a fun project and the automation is very convenient!

I made it open source if you wanna fork. https://github.com/colemancda/Wi-Fi-Crack
keep in mind that this was the second app i made when i was learning Cocoa, no its not the best, but its very convenient. Unfortunately I'm a full-time iOS developer now so I don't have time to update this. It is very hard to make a frontend to already compiled binaries (in contrast to frameworks) and the airport tool is a private apple framework so there's no support for that :(

Thanks! I know just what you mean about getting busy, it's very hard to keep apps up-to-date. Thanks for sharing though, I didn't know anything about aircrack-ng before playing with this.

Hi demcanulty, were you receiving the image not found error as well? Which is an error linked to a missing library. I have installed open ssl using brew, can you clarify which two folders you copied over to /opt/local/lib? Thanks

demcanulty replied on 26 Aug 2013
Sorry WillL5130, I don't remember at this point, I probably did a search for the files that were missing using EasyFind and then copied them to the folder where the program was looking for them.

WillL5130 replied on 28 Aug 2013
In case anyone else is having the same problem, I've found the libraries which are causing problem:

libssl.1.0.0.dylib
libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib

You need to install openssl with homebrew, macports : 'brew install openssl'

If you are still encountering the problem then you need to find the libraries and place them in the proper place. You can use the following commands to find them:

sudo find / -name 'libssl*' -print
sudo find / -name 'libcrypto*' -print

Now copy them over to /opt/local/lib/ with this:

sudo cp [Insert directory found from above]/libssl.1.0.0.dylib /opt/local/lib/libssl.1.0.0.dylib
sudo cp [Insert directory found from above]/libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib /opt/local/lib/libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib

Now run the cracking command again to hopefully see the error disappear. Unfortunately in my case, and perhaps yours too, the rabbit hole goes deeper.

I had to change the pcap dump directory from /private/tmp to /tmp. Also the software added (null) to the end of the command (should be a value to relate to the -w) which I presume means you just have to remember to set a wordlist/dictionary in the WIFI crack settings.

Also, you might want to change the attack mode. The command is currently set to WPA/WPA2-PSK it seems.
-a Force attack mode (1 = static WEP, 2 = WPA/WPA2-PSK).

Handy link here with all the possible flags (options)..
