[Video] Cracking WPA/WPA2 using reaver

Ok so this method is not new its been around for more than a year now , but since I never updated Wi-fEye for more than a year it doesn’t contain this attack , so while I was making a module to do this attack automatically I thought it might be a good idea to explain how to do it manually first.

Using reaver we don’t need any clients to be connected to the target network , we also don’t need to use a dictionary to brute force the WPA/WPA2 key,  This method depends on brute forcing  the WPS pin for the network , therefore it will only work on networks that use WPS pins. Cracking a WPS pin is much more easier than cracking a WPA or a WPA2 key as WPS pins only contain numbers , therefore using brute force its a matter of time (up to 10 hours) till we guess the correct pin , once we have the pin reaver can retrieve the WPA or WPA2 key from it.
