Oxford Dictionary got 171,476 words. I'm #cracking my #Wifi #WPA2 password at 159159186.00 PMK's per second. Need I say more? There are just too many guides on Cracking Wifi WPA/WPA2 passwords using different methods. Everyone has their own take on it. Personally, I think there’s no right or wrong way of cracking a Wireless Access Point. Following way is my way and I found it extremely efficient and fast during my tests for Cracking Wifi WPA/WPA2 passwords using pyrit cowpatty in Kali Linux where I attacked with Dictionary using either cuda or calpp (cal++) and at the same time I used WiFite to fast track a few things. This whole process was used in Kali Linux and it took me less than 10 minutes to crack a Wifi WPA/WPA2 password using pyrit cowpatty WiFite combination using my laptop running a AMD ATI 7500HD Graphics card.
MYIR announced a sandwich-style single board computer that runs Linux on a Freescale i.MX28x SoC and features -40 to 85°C operation and a CAN bus interface. MYIR specializes in low-power ARM single board computers (SBCs) and computer-on-modules (COMs), with the latter including the MYC-SAM9X5-V2 (using Atmel’s ARM9-based AT91SAM9X5) and MYC-AM335X (using TI’s Cortex-A8 based Sitara AM335x). With the new MYC-IMX28X COM and associated MYD-IMX28X development board, the company is mining the Freescale i.MX28x, a 454MHz, ARM9 system-on-chip that has been used in many embedded Linux boards, most recently including Technologic’s TS-7400-V2.
