Mailing list and monthly newsletter

The poll in the forum convinced me to create the mailing list for the newsletter.

If you want to receive the newsletter, just send an empty email (no subject or body needed) to

I also took the time to create a public mailing list for Aircrack-ng. To be able to post messages, you need to subscribe to the mailing-list by sending en empty email to
This is not moderated to avoid delay in moderation and thus the same rules as IRC apply here too. In order to avoid spam as much as possible, only subscribers can send posts to the mailing-list and registrations needs to be approved.

All posts should be sent to

If you have any question or remark about them, do not hesitate :)
