Since I compiled and tested Aircrack-ptw for
my N800 for Erik as a benchmark anyway I now made a Maemo 770/N800 package for it.
Just add the right repository from my Maemo page and install it.
If you also want Aircrack-ng for your 770/N800 you can get it here:
I just benchmarked Aircrack-ptw on
my Nokia N800 (ARMv6 320Mhz) and it finished in 19 seconds. Sadly enough the wireless packet injection doesn't work on
the N800/770. 19 Seconds is quite impressive.
Erik Tews with the help
of two others published a new attack on WEP called: Breaking 104 bit WEP in less then 60 Seconds.
Like the older attacks on WEP this attack uses sniffed IVs in order to break/compute/crack the WEP key.
The nice thing about this attack is that it only needs between 40.000 and 85.000 unique IVs (older attacks
needed between 250.000 and 1.000.000 in order to succeed).
This already reduces the overall attack time since one needs to capture less packages. But the
attack also uses a new/other attack on RC4 which further improves the speed. The paper gives an average of
3 seconds on 1.7Ghz Pentium-M. The attack even works with 5000 keys.
