Fluxion is a utility for Linux devices with which you can audit the security of your WiFi network. It is fully compatible with Kali Linux
, Black Arch. There is also a version of Airslax Fluxion (for bootable drives). The source code for the latest versions of the application is available on Github, which guarantees that it does not contain any malicious scripts or exploits. Fluxion does not exist for Windows, although it is possible to use it in a virtual machine (in Windows 10, which has the ability to run Linux distributions).
Fluxion uses social engineering tools. After launching, it scans the entire WiFi airwaves, locates "vulnerable" clients connected to a given access point and then sends them a fake notification about WiFi signal disconnection (by spoofing their DNS). After that, the victim is prompted to enter the password again. If the victim enters it, Fluxion immediately attempts to authenticate. If the compromised WiFi is accessed, the DNS address on the victim's device is set back to the previously used one, and all traces of the communication are lost.
The program is run via a terminal. That means you can run it on a smartphone via Termux
or Kali NetHunter
- supports all WiFi standards (including 80211ax)
- can scan the airwaves simultaneously in different frequency bands
- supports multiple WiFi adapters
- cracking is possible with prior deauthentication of the victim (via Airplay or MDK3).
It is recommended to use in Kali Linux version Rolling (with the most recent updates) because it requires kernel-level WPA3 support.
Who needs it
Install it to test a wireless access point for hacking resistance. It can also be used to obtain detailed information on all WiFi devices in a visible area (MAC-address, local IP, channel and signal strength).
Download Fluxion free of charge with the current version for Linux on our website. After the first launch of the program, it automatically downloads and installs all the necessary dependencies for it.
