Cracking Wireless (WPA/WPA2) Handshakes with Hashcat

Hey guys, want to talk about this question here:

"Perform MIC cracking using the attached .cap file. "

From Cracking Passwords with Hashcat module.

I had been stuck on this question for some days and i culdn’t find why was my command trowing me an error. This is the command line:

hashcat -a 0 -m 22000 ~/Downloads/hashcat-utils/src/question1.hccapx /usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt

And this is the error:

Hashfile '/home/kali/Downloads/hashcat-utils/src/question1.hccapx' on line 1 (HCPX): Separator unmatched

If you search a little you will see that .hccapx file was deprecated, while in the module they said only hash mode 2500 was gone

But if you search a little more, also the file format .hccapx was replaced for .hc22000, i don’t know exactly when but seems to be around 2021. After some hours of searching on the web i’ve made up to this post in hashcat forum.

And ended up here (hashcat tool for converting .cap file for .hc22000, seems to be possible with hcxpcapngtool too). And then i was able to finish the section.

I don’t know if i was doing something wrong with .hccapx file because i’m new with all of that. But this was the solution i found.

Hope this help someone at some point. And happy cracking! :smiley:
