Presentation

New developments in Hashcat have brought some new WiFi attack techniques to light. We’ve taken concepts from classic WiFi attacks, added a little special sauce, and created a whole new attack vector for WiFi devices everywhere. All it takes is a friendly introduction and a little cracking time to gain access to protected networks. Also, Cynosure Prime will be releasing source for a new password cracking technique. Come get some code and that uneasy feeling of being vulnerable.
