    Solving The ESSID name limitations in programs using airbase-ng

    Airbase-ng has a limitation in the coding in that you cannot add directly into the command line a essid name that has spaces when using xterm. Hence if your target has a name like:

    Home Wifi

    A command line like

    airbase-ng -c 1 -e "Home Wifi" -b xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx -v mon0

    when using xterm may
    cause airbase-ng to crash

    When phishing this can become a problem when using this program in the field

    Oe simple work around.

    Write a file named essidlist having the name Home Wifi on the first line of the file.

    echo "Home Wifi" > essidlist

    You now have a file in root named essidlist

    Use the option --essids (i.e. read the essid from a file)

    Use the following command line

    airbase-ng -c 1 --essids essidlist -b XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX -v mon0

    We are currently coding this option into our Aerial.sh phishing programs for field operations.
