Details

‘WifiZoo is a tool to gather wifi information passively. Hernan wanted to do something wifi-related somewhat helpful in wifi pentesting and Hernan did this just to have fun after he discovered ‘Ferret’ from Errata Security. Hernan knows neither Ferret or WifiZoo do anything spectacular, but he thought that the idea was fun/useful anyways.

Hernan basically wanted something that he could run and tried by itself to get info from open wifi networks (and possibly encrypted also in the future, at least with WEP) without joining any network, and covering all wifi channels, and this is what he came up with so far. Its written in python, can modified easily, and it fulfills its not-very-ambitious purpose. Kudos to scapy for doing pretty much all the packet parsing for me (scapy is great).’
