Hack Wifi using Evil Twin Method with Linset in kali Linux

Linset is a tool for Evil twin attack

How it works

  • Scan the networks.
  • Select network.
  • Capture handshake (can be used without handshake)
  • We choose one of several web interfaces tailored for me (thanks to the collaboration of the users)
  • Mounts one FakeAP imitating the original
  • A DHCP server is created on FakeAP
  • It creates a DNS server to redirect all requests to the Host
  • The web server with the selected interface is launched
  • The mechanism is launched to check the validity of the passwords that will be introduced
  • It deauthentificate all users of the network, hoping to connect to FakeAP and enter the password.
  • The attack will stop after the correct password checking

 First of all download Linset from github with command:

git clone

and then change the permissions of the linset script with command:

chmod +x linset

and then execute it with command:


After execution it will ask to choose the interface so select wlan0 for wireless extension which will put it into monitor mode.

Then it will ask to select the channel so enter 1 to select all the channels.

Now the monitor mode will listen to all the available wifi connections , so wait till your target appears and then press ctrl^c.

Now it will list  all the AP’s with their SSID ,id no. and signal strength , so enter the id of your target and hit Enter as in my case i have selected rajlab by entering 1.

Now select Hostapd by entering 1 which will help in creating Fake AP.

Now hit Enter for using default path to save the capture file or you can give the custom path to save the capture  file which will ask to select the method for cracking the handshake so select 1 for aircrack-ng.

Now select 1 to de-authenticate all the clients connected to the target AP to capture the handshake.

Now when the handshake is captured you will see it on right top corner of the new window and then enter 1 on the menu window as we have captured the handshake. 

Now select 1 for web interface which will be presented to the victim when he will connect to our fake AP.

Now it will ask for language selection of the web interface so enter 1 for English.

Now 4 terminal windows will be opened of which one will create the Fake AP , one will be regularly de-authenticating all the clients and one will  show all the info of the AP.

Now as you can see there are 2 rajlab AP are present of which one is fake and open and the other is the original but the clients will not be able to connect to the original one due to our deauth attack so they will be forced to connect to our fake AP.

After connecting to the Fake AP it will redirect the victim browser to below given web-page which will require the victim to enter the  original AP password as the attack will only stop when the victim will enter correct password.

After submitting the correct password , the attack will be stopped and a message will be generated that your connection will be restored .

As you can see in my case victim entered the correct password and we found the correct key as:

KEY FOUND! [ raj123987 ]
