Using Crunch States invalid mac address


O.K. So here is how I start

I run "wifite" it captures my handshake, yes on my own network

it saves it as mymac.cap

To verify it is my mac I run "airodump-ng mon0"

They MAC addresses match perfectly

so then I run

"crunch 8 12 abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWQYZ | aircrack-ng -bssid 00:01:02:03:04:05 -w- captured.cap"

I am running this because my password contains upper case and lower case characters, it is 11 characters long so I am using between 8 and 12 for testing purposes. It is also commonly what most people would use as far as length.

For starters when I do this it says it is creating a MASIVE file, somewhere around 192 PetaBytes or some other ridicilous figure, may not be as high as I said ...

The other problem I am encountering is it says the MAC ADDRESS is invalid. How is this possible ? This is my biggest question.

My other question is, I know for a FACT my own password does not contain anything like dictionary words and is very complex. I realize it will take pry a couple weeks to crack. That's OK. This is a separate laptop, so I can leave it running off to the side.

So once it recognizes the MAC ADDRESS (I'm hoping someone here can address that) how do I get it to scan all available characters without generating such a massiive password list that will more than take up the 50 gigs I have for this virtual drive. Even if I assigned all 500 GB this file wouldn't fit. Ideas ?

P.S. I tried multiple dictionary files, of course none of them worked because as I stated my password is complex.

You have given 14 digits for the MAC address.
MAC addresses are only 12 hex digits.

Why does it list as, ATT_01:02:03:04:05:06 (edited: It would actually be ATT_01:02:03:04:05) on saved Wifite file ?? Both on saved wifite file and Airodump ? Airodump minus the ATT_ of course

6 Digits on Both - am I missing something ? Perhaps a -XX or --XX command ?

Only possble thing I can think of is on airodump, it won't run 0n WLAN0 only on Mon0 - But that shouldn't make that much of a difference. Packet injection is enabled on Mon0 but not Wlan0

NEver mind I see what I did, I am using 12 digits on the Mac Address in question - I just blanked it out and used 14 digits instead of 12. I am using a 12 digit mac Address

PS - If someone can't answer that question, answering the other question about the file size and a work around would be great !

Example, I rest it to a 11 digit number,

root@kali:~/hs# crunch 11 11 0123456789 | aircrack-ng -bssid 11-11-11-11-11-11 -w- ATT_11-11-11-11-11-11.cap
Crunch will now generate the following amount of data: 1200000000000 bytes
1144409 MB
1117 GB
1 TB
0 PB
Crunch will now generate the following number of lines: 100000000000
Invalid BSSID (not a MAC).
"aircrack-ng --help" for help.
root@kali:~/hs#

I am trying to do this on a 50 GB Virtual Machine although I could expand to 300 GB - which still seems wouldn't cover it

Why do you want to access so much data going through an access point?
