d4rk0wl Posted September 17, 2013 Share Posted September 17, 2013 Hello, Recently I decided to check the strength of my hidden ESSID WIFI access point by using MDK3 and Renderman's pre-assembled SSID list. Although I am running into some problems with MDK3 I have never ran into before. The channel my AP is on shares the same channel with other APs in my neighborhood, I start my airodump-ng session on the correct interface and filtered by both SSID and channel. When I bring up MDK3 I initialize the command by executing: root@Linuxnetbook:~# mdk3 mon0 p -t <Target BSSID> -f SSID.txt Everything seems to start fine, though I somehow get a response from another un-hidden BSSID in my neighborhood. SSID Wordlist Mode activated! Waiting for beacon frame from target... Sniffer thread started SSID is hidden. SSID Length is: 7. Got response from <Random SSID, which is not mine>, SSID: "dad" Last try was: (null) Trying SSID: Trying SSID: hpsetup Packets sent: 5 - Speed: 4 packets/sec End of SSID list reached I do not understand why it is not targeting the correct SSID and recieving responses from other APs. I am running the airodump-ng session congruently alongside these attempts as well. Any help would be appreciated for this n00b. Thanks in advance, d4rk0wl PS - I realize I could just search the wordlist for my AP, but this way seemed much more fun :P Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
