Setting up and running Fern WiFi Cracker

Fern WiFi Cracker is a wireless penetration testing tool written in Python. It basically provides a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for cracking wireless networks. It automatically runs aireplay-ng, airodump-ng and aircrack-ng whenever we tend to execute Fern WiFi Cracker. They run individually, but make use of the aircrack-ng suite of tools. We can use Fern WiFi Cracker for session hijacking or locating the geolocation of a particular system based on its Mac address.

Note

Before running Fern WiFi Cracker, make sure that your wireless card supports packet injection.
