What can a pen tester do after WiFi password is cracked?


Recommended Posts

Just curious... Everyone seems to want to crack a clients WiFi password, but to what end? What can be done once you find an access-points WiFi password?

I understand that you can use the client WiFi to surf the web anonymously, but what else can be done??

This is a very simplified and vague explanation but it usually for pen testers it the entry door to a LAN.  Depending on how well the WiFi network is deployed it may be a HUGE open hole in the network.  There are other things like eavesdropping on the actual WiFi along with other tactics.  Just look at it as a door way to possible full network access.
