CoffeeMiner- A Wi-Fi Network Hacking Tool that Mines Crypto Currencies

A developer outlined proof-of-concept nicknamed CoffeeMiner, which hacks public Wi-Fis and mine cryptocurrencies.

CoffeeMiner WiFi Trojan

The staggering rise of Bitcoin values has caught the interest of rogue hackers and crooks who are devising ways of stealing crypto passwords and wallets as well as computational resources from unsuspecting users.

A developer going by the name Arnau published concrete evidence dubbed CoffeeMiner, which attacks public WIFI’s and insert a crypto-mining code that taps into your browser setting and getting hold of your passwords to monetize their efforts.

Team from Sophos Lab researchers published more in detail about it in their blog post.

Security experts say that the project drew inspiration from the Starbucks case whereby hackers gained illegal control of laptops connected to public Wi-Fi and exploited the device’s computing power to extract cryptocurrency.

Arnau explained how to initiate the   MITM (Man (Person)-In-The-Middle) attack by inserting some …

DRAGONBLOOD flaw which allows hacking of WPA3 protected WiFi passwords

A group of researchers and experts who go by the name Dragonblood (MathyVanhoef and Eyal Ronen) have come up with methods of hacking WPA3 protected WiFi passwords by manipulating two sets of vulnerabilities popularly referred to as Dragonblood flaws.

DragonBlood WiFi Hack

We first go to interact with this team in April after they revealed the weaknesses and faults in WPA3, which can be exploited to recover passwords by corruptingcache-based side-channel leaks or timing.

In June 2018, the WiFi Protected Access 3(WPA3) was launched, which addressed all the security concerns and issues that affect previous versions and provide solutions to these wireless attacks from DEUTH attacks and KRACK attacks.

The standard WPA Wireless security is specially designed to verify all the wireless devices through the use of an advanced Encryption Standard (AES) protocol that establishes a secure platform that cannot be hacked or …

Researchers devised a new WiFi hack that works on WPA/WPA2

A famed expert Jens ‘Atom’ Steube, created a new WIFI hack that allows the cracking of WiFi passwords on modern routers. 

Jens ‘Atom’ Steube, a leading developer of the famed cracking tool Hashcat. The expert has devised a new hacking technique that provides cracking for W-Fi passwords in the most modern and advanced routers.

WiFi Flaw Hacked / Exploit

The techniques work against the Pairwise Master Key Identifier (PMKID with WPA/WPA2 wireless network protocols when roaming features are enabled.

The researcher detected the attack he carrying out risk-assessment of the WPA3 security standard. The cracking technique the recovering of Pre-shared Key (PSK) login passwords by the attacker and, in turn, exploits them to monitor your internet traffic as well as hack into your WiFi network.

These new hacks are different from other hacking techniques as it doesn’t need the capturing of complete 4-way authentication handshake of EAPOL.

But instead, it uses RSN IE (Robust Security Network Information Element) to request an …
