"Hacking Wi-Fi Password Using Ubuntu Linux - I know a lot of you out there would love to know how to hack or crack Wi-Fi passwords from coffee shops or just about any place with managed or secured network.

"I've already featured several hacking software (and more hacking tools) before, and some of which can help you crack Wi-Fi passwords be it WEP or WPA protected. This time, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite wireless tools that can be used to hack Wi-Fi password using Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution:

"Aircrack-ng
Aircrack-ng (a fork of aircrack) is my main tool for cracking Wi-Fi passwords. It has a wireless network detector, a packet sniffer, WEP and WPA/WPA2-PSK cracker, and an analysis tool for 802.11 wireless LANs. Aircrack-ng works with any wireless card whose driver supports raw monitoring mode and can sniff 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g traffic."
