altjx Posted December 18, 2013 Share Posted December 18, 2013 (edited) Still learning more about the pineapple and loving this device so far. I'm also still learning quite a bit about assessing wireless networks too, and I hope this isn't the wrong place to post my question. To my knowledge, Karma on the wifi pineapple doesn't bring up a rogue AP as long as the probe request is for a wireless network that uses encryption, correct? That being said, I ran across an article that referred to bringing up a rogue AP and making someone connect to his instead of their original one. The confusing part for me is that the victim's original wireless AP is encrypted with WEP, so how does bumping him off his force him to connect to their rogue AP, despite the signal being stronger? Is it possible to bring up a rogue AP with encryption (and trick clients into connecting to it), but just not supported by Karma? I thought the reason Karma didn't bring up rogue APs that use encryption was because clients wouldn't connect to it. Here's an exerpt from the article: Note that we once again used his BSSID in the aireplay-ng command. If our signal is stronger than his own AP, he will automatically reconnect to our evil twin Edited December 18, 2013 by altjx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
