This is a multi-use bash script for Linux systems to audit wireless networks.
We'll conquer the earth!!


  • Interface mode switcher (Monitor-Managed) keeping selection even on interface name changing.
  • DoS over wireless networks using different methods.
  • Assisted Handshake file capturing.
  • Cleaning and optimizing Handshake captured files.
  • Offline password decrypting on WPA/WPA2 captured files (dictionary, bruteforce and rule based).
  • Evil Twin attacks (Rogue AP):
    • Only Rogue/Fake AP version to sniff using external sniffer (Hostapd + DHCP + DoS).
    • Simple integrated sniffing (Hostapd + DHCP + DoS + ettercap).
    • Integrated sniffing, sslstrip (Hostapd + DHCP + DoS + Ettercap + Sslstrip).
    • Captive portal with "DNS blackhole" to capture wifi passwords (Hostapd + DHCP + DoS + Dnsspoff + Lighttpd).
  • WPS features:
    • WPS scanning (wash). Self parameterization to avoid "bad fcs" problem.
    • Custom PIN association (bully and reaver).
    • Pixie Dust attacks (bully and reaver).
    • Bruteforce PIN attacks (bully and reaver).
    • Parameterizable timeouts.
    • Known WPS PINs attack (bully and reaver), based on online PIN database with auto-update.
    • Integration of the most common PIN generation algorithms.
  • Compatibility with many Linux distros (see requirements section).
  • Easy targeting and selection in every section.
  • Drag and drop files on console window for entering file paths.
  • Dynamic screen resolution detection and windows auto-sizing for optimal viewing.
  • Controlled Exit. Cleaning tasks and temp files. Option to keep monitor mode if desired.
  • Multilanguage support and autodetect OS language feature (see supported languages section).
  • Help hints in every zone/menu for easy use.
  • Auto-update. Script checks for newer version if possible.


Bash version 4.0 or later needed.

Tested on these compatible Linux distros:
-Kali 2.0, 2016.1, 2016.2 and arm versions (Raspberry Pi)
-Wifislax 4.11.1 and 4.12
-Backbox 4.5.1 and 4.6
-Parrot 2.2.1, 3.1.1 and arm versions (Raspberry Pi)
-BlackArch 2016.01.10 to 2016.12.29
-Cyborg Hawk 1.1
-Debian 7 (Wheezy) and 8 (Jessie)
-Ubuntu/Xubuntu 15.10, 16.04 and 16.04.1
-OpenSUSE Leap 42.1
-CentOS 6 and 7
-Gentoo 20160514 and 20160704
-Fedora 24
-Red Hat 7 (Maipo)
-Arch 4.6.2-1 to 4.8.13-1
-Raspbian 7 (Wheezy) and 8 (Jessie) (Raspberry Pi)
-OpenMandriva LX3

It's already available in ArchStrike repositories used by some distros based on Arch Linux.
Repositories versions will have auto-update feature disabled in order to avoid breaking dependencies. There is a var at the beginning of the file, "auto_update" can be set to 0 to turn off the auto-update feature.

Anyway, can be used with any Linux distro if you have installed the tools what script needs. The script checks for them at the beginning.

We will enumerate the categories and tools. The format will be: "command -> possible package name". The command can be included in different packages depending of the distro.

Essential tools: <- the script doesn't work if you don't have installed all of them

ifconfig -> net-tools
iwconfig -> wireless-tools
iw -> iw
awk -> awk / gawk
airmon-ng -> aircrack-ng
airodump-ng -> aircrack-ng
aircrack-ng -> aircrack-ng
xterm -> xterm

Optional tools: <- not necessary to work, only needed for some features

wpaclean -> aircrack-ng
crunch -> crunch
aireplay-ng -> aircrack-ng
mdk3 -> mdk3
hashcat -> hashcat
hostapd -> hostapd
dhcpd -> isc-dhcp-server / dhcp-server / dhcp
iptables -> iptables
ettercap -> ettercap / ettercap-text-only / ettercap-graphical
etterlog -> ettercap / ettercap-text-only / ettercap-graphical
sslstrip -> sslstrip
lighttpd -> lighttpd
dnsspoof -> dsniff
wash -> reaver
reaver -> reaver
bully -> bully
pixiewps -> pixiewps
unbuffer -> expect

Update tools: <- not necessary to work, only used for auto-update

curl -> curl

Internal tools: <- these are internally checked. Not necessary to work, good to have

xdpyinfo -> x11-utils / xdpyinfo / xorg-xdpyinfo
ethtool -> ethtool
lspci -> pciutils
rfkill -> rfkill

Is highly recommended to have the internal tools installed. They improve functionality and performance. For example, xdpyinfo allow the script to detect the desktop resolution in order to print windows in a better way.

Known incompatibilities

Impossible compatibility for Mac OSX at the moment. Some reasons:
-Bash version <- it can be avoided upgrading to 4 or later, this is not the real problem 😄
-Aircrack suite <- this suite for OSX doesn't support airodump and aireplay
-Wireless tools <- iwconfig doesn't exists for OSX, and airport command can't be used. It generates very different outputs

Incompatible with OpenBSD and FreeBSD. They are Unix systems but they have some differences with Linux:
-Bash <- They have no bash. It can be installed, this is not the real problem again 😅
-Wireless tools <- iwconfig doesn't exists for these systems, they use ifconfig instead and it generates very different outputs


This script must be used only for educational purposes and Pen testing.
Use it only on your own networks.
We are not responsible of its use.
This script is under GPLv3 (or later) License.


Must be launched only using bash (not sh). Example bash /path/to/
If you launch the script using sh and a "Syntax error" appears, launch it with bash instead of sh.

Supported Languages

English, Spanish, French, Catalan, Portuguese, Russian and Greek.

Project Collaboration

You can join the project:
-Translations to other languages are welcome.
-More distros support compatibility.
-New features.
-Testing and feedback is needed too.

For collaborating translators:
You can take the strings to translate from the code or you can ask me directly by mail. I'll inform you how to proceed or to add you as a collaborator on github.

For collaborating developers:
Debug mode was implemented for faster development skipping intro and initial checks. Use it setting var "debug_mode" to 1
Please, respect the tab indentation, code style and the UTF-8 files format only using at the end of the lines LF (not CRLF).
Airgeddon code is 100% clean of warnings. Use shellcheck to search for errors and warnings on code. <- Thanks xtonousou for the tip 😉

For beta testers:
You can download the master version or the beta testing version from the development branch called dev


See Changelog file to review changes.
