Hijacker is a Graphical User Interface for the aircrack-ng suite, mdk3 and reaver. It offers a simple and easy UI to use these tools without typing commands in a console and copy&pasting MAC addresses.
This application requires an ARM android device with a wireless adapter that supports Monitor Mode
. A few android devices do, but none of them natively. This means that you will need a custom firmware. Nexus 5 and any other device that uses the BCM4339 chipset (MSM8974, such as Xperia Z2, LG G2 etc) will work with Nexmon
(it also supports some other chipsets). Devices that use BCM4330 can use bcmon
. An alternative would be to use an external adapter that supports monitor mode in Android with an OTG cable.
The required tools are included for armv7l and aarch64 devices as of version 1.1. The Nexmon driver and management utility for BCM4339 are also included.
Root is also necessary, as these tools need root to work.
- View a list of access points and stations (clients) around you (even hidden ones)
- View the activity of a network (by measuring beacons and data packets) and its clients
- Statistics about access points and stations
- See the manufacturer of a device (AP or station) from the OUI database
- See the signal power of devices and filter the ones that are closer to you
- Save captured packets in .cap file
- Deauthenticate all the clients of a network (either targeting each one (effective) or without specific target)
- Deauthenticate a specific client from the network it’s connected
- MDK3 Beacon Flooding with custom options and SSID list
- MDK3 Authentication DoS for a specific network or to everyone
- Capture a WPA handshake or gather IVs to crack a WEP network
- Reaver WPS cracking (pixie-dust attack using NetHunter chroot and external adapter)
- you are on Android 5+
- you are rooted. SuperSU is required. If you are on CM, install SuperSU
- have a firmware to support Monitor Mode on your wireless interface
Download the latest version
When you run Hijacker for the first time, you will be asked whether you want to install the nexmon firmware or go to home screen. If you have installed your firmware, you can just go to the home screen. Otherwise, click’Install Nexmon’ and follow the directions. Keep in mind that on some devices, installing files in /system might trigger an Android security feature and your system partition will be restored when you reboot. After installing the firmware you will land on the home screen and airodump will start. If you don’t see any networks, make sure you have enabled your WiFi
and it’s in monitor mode. If you have a problem, go to settings and click “Test Tools”. If they all pass, you probably don’t have monitor mode enabled. If something fails, click “Copy test command” and select the tool that fails. A sample command will be copied to your clipboard so you can open a terminal, run it, and see what’s wrong.
