How easy is it to Hack WiFi?

Most WiFi routers and network connected devices are still susceptible to the three main types of WiFi attacks and VPNs cannot always protect against an attack.

HackHunter detects the key signatures of these attacks and alerts you in real-time – it’s even capable of determining the attacking tool being used and its location.

The three main WiFi attack types:

Denial of Service (DOS)

Hardware and software tools that are easily concealed are available for a few dollars that can disconnect one or more devices from the network.

The WiFi network will be rendered inoperable for as long as the DOS attack continues.

Password Cracking

Using common hacking tools such as those bundled with Kali Linux, handshake packets can be intercepted and saved offline to crack using brute force tools.

Strong passwords will help, but more sophisticated cracking tools and more powerful processors are making the task easier for hackers.

Man-in-the-Middle

Hacking tools such as the WiFi Pineapple can listen to connection requests from your mobile phone or other WiFi connected device and pretend to be your home WiFi network or other trusted networks.

With the right hacking configuration and typical default device settings, your device will automatically connect to the Rogue or Fake Access Point, allowing the attacker to control your connection.
