# Kr00ker # # Experimetal KR00K PoC in python3 using scapy # # Description: # This script is a simple experiment to exploit the KR00K vulnerability (CVE-2019-15126), # that allows to decrypt some WPA2 CCMP data in vulnerable devices. # More specifically this script attempts to retrieve Plaintext Data of WPA2 CCMP packets knowning: # * the TK (128 bites all zero) # * the Nonce (sent plaintext in packet header) # * the Encrypted Data # # Where: # * WPA2 AES-CCMP decryption --> AES(Nonce,TK) XOR Encrypted Data = Decrypted Data # * Decrypted stream starts with "\xaa\xaa\x03\x00\x00\x00" # * Nonce (104 bits) = Priority (1byte) + SRC MAC (6bytes) + PN (6bytes) # # This PoC works on WPA2 AES CCMP with Frequency 2.4GHz WLANs. # # References: # # # # Copyright (C) 2020 Maurizio Siddu # # # This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify # it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by # the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or # (at your option) any later version. # # This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, # but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of # MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
