Wepdecrypt is a Wireless LAN Tool written in c which guesses WEP Keys based on a active dictionary attack, key generator, distributed network attack and some other methods, Wepdecrypt based on wepattack and GPL licensed.

Here are some key features of "Wepdecrypt":
Implemented packet filters.
Only one crypted packet is enough to start cracking
Has it's own key generator.
Can crack a dumpfile over a network.
Can act as a server and client.
Has an fltk gui.

What's New in This Release:
Applied destdir patch thanks to VMiklos from frugalware (first patch applied Thanks! :).
Modified configure and Makefile to support destdir and wkeygen features.
Now wordfile can contain hex keys just add HEXKEY_FILE to the first line. Feature sugested by Scott Taylor thanks!.
Added wkeygen, wkeygen is a modified version of an add-on from linux-wlan-ng to generate wep hex keys.
Added a man page for wkeygen tool.
Documentation updated to show usage of new features.
Some source code clean ups.
Applied a patch from gentoo to fix a little compiling problem.
Added support to save bssid in server log when a key is found by a client.
Added new code to generate keys, it has been widely improved, updated wepdecrypt to use this new code (old code is still there it will be removed soon).
Added an option to set the mode for the new key generator (all, alpha, alphanumeric, numeric, printable, random).
Now -n option works as it was supposed to.
Version and Help options added to the gui's help menu.
Gui look and functionalities changed (added an option to set -d flag and another option to set the numbers of blocks to get and decrypt from the server).
Reconstructed the way in which gwepdecrypt handles the output data. This fixes two bugs one that caused use of 100% of the CPU and another related with gwepdecrypt output (no more cutted lines, also fixed in windows).
Added code to check if wepdecrypt is installed before executing it in gwepdecrypt (fixes a crash in gwepdecrypt).
Little speed up enhacement.
Some Gui, wepdecrypt and wkeygen minor bugs fixed.
Windows support (Done. Binaries will be released with the next version).
Modified wepdecrypt scripts to look for john in the path.
Added a todo file.
Added a file called Examples.txt with scripts that use tools from wepdecrypt.
