I use backtrack.
As you are aware, when you do a general capture(all channels) with airodump it records detected bssid as well as associated stations(informally wireless adapters). I am trying to record as many associated stations as possible, but they come & go as they please during the airodump process which means I typically have to stop & restart airodump a billion times.
Does the dump file save all stations despite them disappearing from the screen and if so which programs can I use to open the dump file?
In relation to aircrack, e.g.
airecrack-ng -w *.1st -b 00.11:22:33:44:55(victim) *.cap
this launches a dictionary attack with the 1st file.
As you are aware, the passwords in such files are ASCII encoded; there not hex
I want to add hex passwords to this 1st file.
How do I do that knowing not all hex characters convert to ascii?
