Startups like Euclid Analytics grabs probe requests to track people. This scripts generate random probe requests which they love so much.
On my RTL818L card I get ~50 probes/sec.
#!/usr/bin/env python # This script generates high volume of 802.11 Probe Requests frames. # Each frame have uniq random source MAC. # It use Scapy http://www.secdev.org/projects/scapy/ for frames crafting. # You need injection supported device. import logging logging.getLogger("scapy.runtime").setLevel(logging.ERROR) # Disable IPv6 warnings from scapy.all import sendp,Dot11,RadioTap,RandMAC # Injection device device = 'mon0' # Time betwen frames send.
