WPA Word Lists/Links

After getting WEP cracking down, I decided to give WPA a try. After some reading about coWPAtty and Rainbow Tables, it seems that the better dictionary or word list you have, the better chances of success.

What if the target WPA passphrase is not in your word list? What if its just a random string of characters like you can get from grc.com password generator? Then your SOL!

I wanted to find a word list generator for every possible combination of characters and I found this…


After a bit I came up with the following…..

$ perl ./wg.pl -l 8 -u 64 -v abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWX YZ0123456789\`\~\!\@\#\$\%\^\&\*\(\)\-\_\+\=\[\]\;\’\,\.\/\<\>\?\:\”\{\}\|\ > words.txt

This will generate a list of “words” (actually character strings) between 8 and 64 characters long (-l 8 -u 64) and output it to a text file named “words.txt”
(> words.txt).
All the / characters are there because I was getting errors from not escaping bash command characters.

I tested it with -l 2 -u 4 and lowercase alphas…then grepped it for dirty words ;>
(c’mon…we all had a laugh in gradeschool doing that with the dictionary)

$ grep (insert 4 letter word) words.txt
It worked!

Then I started it with the above parameters and it’s been running for 45 minutes…up to 900 meg!!! This is going to be enormous!!! I think this might be a bit too much.

Can someone check to make sure I didn’t leave any characters out?

I did not write the script and know very little about scripting so I cant answer anything about how it works.

This is one of the best sites to get word lists and rainbow tables……… thier large files, but the best!




  1. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
