Zer0byte’s Open Source Wifi Scanner

zer0 Byte Open Source wifi scanner

If you watched the Security Tube’s vide0 Creating Wireless Backdoors (Swse Addendum 2)  and also looking for answer to the Lab exercise where vivek wants to see if you can come up with wifi scanner ? then your search is over :p.

Coincidently  I was also working on a Wifi scanner Just before the video release, whose original source code I was able to find at Code Project created By Charles Putney

This Wifi Scanner is based on “netsh” command which is the same command used by vivek in his addendum 2 video. The source is in Microsoft Visual C#.
