Access point uses different BSSID and deauth attack fails

I’m using airgeddon ( to perform a deauthentication attack on my wifi network.

When i put my wireless interface in monitor mode to scan the network from the outside I found the router’s BSSID, which is 10:13:31:F1:48:8D, and then I tried to perform various deauthentication attacks on the network but all of them failed: my computer can successfully send packets but the network is not affected (since my other devices can access internet normally).

Then I ran Zenmap from inside of the network to check if my router’s BSSID was correct and I found that all the devices connected to wifi shown a different BSSID for the router, which is: 10:13:31:F1:48:8C: the difference is in the last digit.

So I tried to perform the attack on the 8C BSSID manually (because it is not detected by airodump-ng) but the attack fails.

This is what I used for the attack:

aireplay-ng -0 0 -a 10:13:31:F1:48:8C wlp3s0mon 

and the result is:

00:03:55 Waiting for beacon frame(BSSID 10:13:31:F1:48:8C) on channel 1 00:04:05 No such BSSID available. 

using the channel 1 for the attack (the same attack works with 8D and channel set on 1).

There’s a way to perform the attack on the correct BSSID?

Windows 10 Remote Desktop fails after laptop screen times out, any ideas why?

I am on a domain, and use the laptop to Remote connect to a server hosting medical software suite. Our server is set to auto lock the screens after 15 minutes if no activity is present. If this happens, then Remote Desktop Connection either takes forever to connect to the other server, or fails to connect at all. If the screen is manually locked using win key + L, then it works fine. Also, all of our other laptops work fine even when the account is auto signed out.

Any ideas on what could cause this or how to go about fixing it? Due to it being isolated to that laptop I have considered it being a Windows 10 issue–although it is a new a Dell latitude 5500 that is doing it. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Select into query, insert fails, but the table is created

I am using SQL Server 2016

I tried to the following query.

SELECT CONVERT(BIGINT, ‘A’) col1 INTO #tmp This query is obviously in error. Because it does not convert. However, the temporary table (#tmp) is created even if the query fails.

Why? I think this is by design, but I want to know.

P.S. PDW (parallel datawarehouse) does not create temporary table.

Irrlicht Code::Blocks project fails to build on Linux machine

Certificate check works with root but fails with Intermediate CA [duplicate]

I have 3 certificates, server.crt issued by Intermediate CA which is issued by Root. The server.crt is configured on apache2 (version 2.4.29-1) on Ubuntu 18.04.

However when I am trying to connect to the server URL through openssl (version 1.1.1) using the intermediate CA as the CAfile parameter, I receive error as Verify return code: 2 (unable to get issuer certificate) Command used : openssl s_client -connect server_URL:443 -CAfile Intermediate.pem

But when I try to connect the same URL using the root certificate it works with return code 0. Command used : openssl s_client -connect server_URL:443 -CAfile Root.pem — Works fine

How can I make the the certificate check work using the intermediate CA and not Root certificate.

Note that the below certificate chain verification are all successful.

openssl verify -CAfile root.pem Internal_CA.pem — OK

openssl verify -CAfile root_and_intemediate_combined.pem server.pem — OK

Also I got same results for using both pem and crt formats for all certificates.

Importing foreign characters fails

Hi @Sven,
Two things today:

1. I need to replace keywords, anchors, and secondary anchors in some projects. I tried to do it with importing keywords and anchors but what I got in the projects after importing are ??????, ???????, ??????. The language is korean.
While I was typing this I thought of importing “Exported data fields” which seemed to be working. It places the anchor in {} instead of comas but I guess that’s fine.
2. After setting a “Folder with data files to use” how can I set it back to the default directory after I duplicate a project. I can’t delete anything in the data field.

set_transient fails if the value has more than 60.000 characters

I have a problem which I can’t figure out. I have a collection of object which sometimes can be very big. I have to store the entire collection as a serialized transient. The problem is that when the serialized string has more than 60000 characters the insertion in the DB fails.

Why? I checked the wp_options table and the “value” column is a longtext. Which holds 4GB of data, am I right?

How to determine Sender Score IP to look up if straight query fails?

I’m checking up on my email set-up and came across Sender Score as part of my research and tests.

We are sending email through Outlook’s mail server. Our original mailfrom domain is If I put that into Sender Score, I get “no data available”.

The DKIM records are validated from That domain again doesn’t have any data. However, it shows around 300 related sending domains, like which do give you a sender score for some IPs if queried. Why does this not work for our domain? Are we not sending enough emails?

From the email headers, I can find that client-ip= Is that the correct IP to put into the query field? Is there another way to discover sending IPs that doesn’t require looking up email headers? For example, checking SPF records? If so, how do I do it?

MitM Attack Fails on Home Wireless Router

I am currently trying to perform a MitM attack on my home wireless network to get a better understanding on how this attack works. I can successfully perform this attack on a NAT network on some virtual machines but it will not work on my home wireless network with an external WiFi adapter. More specifically, the target devices are not able to load webpages even while still connected to the WiFi. However, I can still view the packets sent from the device to the gateway.

I have used Bettercap, Ettercap and arpspoof to try and accomplish this and it all fails with the same result. I’m positive that the target IP and the gateway is specified for each tool and I made sure that I enabled portforwarding with echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward.

My only logical conclusion is that it is somehow not successfully redirecting the packets from the target machine to the gateway and vice versa.

Is anyone able to suggest any fixes? Are some routers able to prevent MitM attacks? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

(I am using an Alfa AC1200 wireless adapter and running Kali on a VM. I also have a Bell HomeHub 3000 which is from what I believe exclusive to Canada and manufactured by Sagecom.)
