If you ever wanted to hack a WiFi network, then these wireless hack devices will perform such attacks for you with ease.

Depending on your scope of attack, we have listed multiple wireless hacking devices for you to choose from, exploiting cars, drones, WiFi networks, tapping mobile networks, garage doors and many more.

Without further ado lets dive straight in.

Top 10 Wireless Hacking Devices

1.Wifi Pineapple

THE WORLD’S BEST ROGUE ACCESS POINT AND WIFI PENTEST PLATFORM

The WiFi Pineapple lets pentesters perform targeted man-in-the-middle attacks, advanced reconnaissance, credential harvesting, open source intelligence gathering and more – all from a clean, intuitive web interface.

  • 1. Perform advanced man-in-the-middle attacks by thoroughly mimicking preferred networks
  • 2. Gather intelligence, including what other networks the targets have connected
  • 3. Completely visualizes the WiFi landscape with continuous, live passive monitoring
  • 4. Capture WPA and WPA Enterprise credentials in pcap, hashcat, JTR or plaintext formats
  • 5. All without impacting out-of-scope neighbors from an easy, cross-platform web interface

Considered by many as one of the most crucial devices to have in your hacking gadgets kit.

2.Yard Stick One

SDR devices are very powerful and highly used by all people interested in RF hacking, pentesting and cyber security researching. We all know that equipment for this type of pentesting can be expensive. Well, it doesn’t need to be if we give the chance to this small pseudo-sdr device. Here are some reasons why you should try YARD Stick One:

  • You’ll be capable of sniffing RF data only using Yard Stick One and an interactive Python shell.
  • If you were playing with RF devices in the past, combining Yardstick One dongle, a Proxmark RFID and a Raspberry Pi will give you a very powerful toolset for keyfobs cloning. YARD Stick One role in this combination will be the transmission of the unlock code. You can also use it in combination with RTL-SDR device for jamming and replay attacks (keyless entry attacks).
  • It can be used for hacking garage door remote controllers, jamming wireless home alarms in a few seconds, reverse engineering wireless cabinet locks, etc.
  • This pseudo SDR device is very useful when it comes to reverse engineering and digital signal analyzing.
  • It’s super easy to incorporate with your own projects, thanks to RFCat firmware, which is nothing else than another program in Linux written in Python.
  • You can use it capture data from any ASK/OOK/MSK/2-FSK/GFSK modulation in the 300 – 928 MHz band, then analyze and re-transmit (reverse engineer signal) the modified digital signal.
  • Everything related to this device, such as documentation, projects, examples, blogs is available all over the Internet. So, getting started can be really simple, even for the very beginners.

3.WHID Elite - Multi Purpose Offensive Device

WHID Elite is a GSM-enabled Open-Source Multi-Purpose Offensive Device that allows a threat actor to remotely inject keystrokes, bypass air-gapped systems, conduct mousejacking attacks, do acoustic surveillance, RF replay attacks and much more. In practice, it is THE Wet Dream of any Security Consultant out there!

Some of the main features of WHID elite are:

  • Remote control over GSM/2G Networks
  • Remote HID Injection
  • Bypass Air-Gapped Environments
  • Support for Mousejacking Attacks
  • Radio Hacking related Attacks
  • Embedded USB HUB to easily weaponize USB Gadgets
  • GPS Location of WHIDElite
  • Remote Audio Surveillance

4.WiFi Deauther Wristband

This tiny ESP8266 development board was created by Spacehuhn. This device allows you to scan for WiFi devices, block selected connections, create dozens of networks and confuse WiFi scanners.

The main feature, the de-authentication attack, which comes pre-installed. Is used to disconnect devices from their WiFi network.

You can think of it as a Wifi Jammer, however it only exploits a vulnerability in the 802.11 networks that sends special crafted Wifi packets to the de-authenticating device, thus can be used to improve evil twin attacks.

This ESP8266 development board comes with an 600mAh battery, OLED display and a 3 way momentary slide switch but you can wear it like a smart watch.

5.Wireless Zigbee CC2531 USB Sniffer & Analyzer

If you are into home automation then this device is a must have. The target device needs to be on a zigbee chipset or on the IEEE’s 802.15.4 spectrum, but to give you a clearer picture this device can sniff and decode packets from drones, security systems, popular products such as amazon echo, samsung smarthings and yale smartlocks just to name a few.

6.Crazy Radio PA 2.0

Crazy.radio PA is a long range open USB radio dongle based on the nRF24LU1+ from Nordic Semiconductor. It features a 20dBm power amplifier, LNA and comes pre-programmed with Crazyflie compatible firmware. The power amplifier boosts the range, giving a range of more than 1km (line of sight) together with the Crazyflie 2.0 and above 2km Crazyradio PA to Crazyradio PA (line of sight).

The Crazyradio PA is not only for usage together with the Crazy.flie and Crazy.flie 2.0. Since it’s an open project with firmware written from scratch and a Python API for usage it’s great building block for systems that require longer range than WiFi and doesn’t have the same requirements for bandwidth. The hardware comes shipped with the latest firmware as well as a bootloader that enables firmware upgrades via USB without any additional hardware needed.

Compatible with mousejack, keyjack, keysniffer, and JackIt projects.

7.ESP8266 WiFi Killer/Jammer

Another development board you can use for all kinds of things, but the main feature with the ESP8266 WiFi Killer is using it as a wifi jammer.

Send EMP attacks to disconnect targeted devices off their network.

8.WiFi Deauther OLED

This tiny ESP8266 development board is a small version of above listed deauther wristband.

This device allows you to scan for WiFi devices, block selected connections, create dozens of networks and confuse WiFi scanners.

The main feature, the de-authentication attack, which comes pre-installed. Is used to disconnect devices from their WiFi network.

You can think of it as a Wifi Jammer, however it only exploits a vulnerability in the 802.11 networks that sends special crafted Wifi packets to the de-authenticating device, thus can be used to improve evil twin attacks.

It comes installed with the latest ESP8266 Deauther software.

9.HackRF One

One of the most popular SDR’s available, the HackRF one is a low cost, open sourced software radio defined peripheral capable of transmission or reception of radio signals from 1 MHz to 6 GHz. 

Designed to enable test and development of modern and next generation radio technologies, HackRF One can be used as a USB peripheral or programmed for stand-alone operation.

With this device its possible to create an IMSI catcher. An IMSI catcher is a device commonly used by law enforcement and intelligence agencies around the world to track mobile phones. They are designed to collect and log IMSI numbers, which are unique identifiers assigned to mobile phone subscriptions.

Under certain circumstances, IMSI numbers can be linked back to personal identities.

10.WIFI Duck

This open source project aims to provide a user-friendly tool to learn about keystroke injection attacks. A microcontroller acts as a USB keyboard that is programmable over WiFi. It’s using the Ducky Script language that Hak5 introduced with the USB Rubber Ducky.

You can simply plug it in, connect to its Wi-Fi network and manage all scripts from within the web interface. You don’t need to install an app; you don’t need to log in, and you don’t need to compile or flash anything. Your scripts are saved on the device itself, so you don’t need a micro SD card either.

A keyboard is trusted by most operating systems by default, which enables for a variety of attacks. Humans might not type very fast, but an automated device like this can. It can open a terminal and mess with your computer in a matter of a milliseconds!

  • Plug it in
  • Connect to WiFi
  • Open Browser
  • Edit Ducky Scripts
  • Control Victim Computer

And there you have it. The top 10 wireless hacking devices.
