Hashcat creator Jens Steube stumbled onto an attack technique capable of cracking hashed passwords. It's based on the Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key security protocol. Hackers need only a small portion of the handshake called the Robust Security Network Information Element. The hacker connects directly to the router and accesses the needed data rather than waiting for someone to connect. In a typical attack, the hacker must be in the range of a router and a connecting wireless device. That’s not the case in the new attack.
