Aircrack-ng 1.2 Release candidate 1

Here is the first release candidate. I was wrong about saying there would be a fourth beta in the post of the previous release. There is exactly 7 month after the last beta. There will be most likely another one then the final release in the next few month.

Updating is highly recommend as this contains a lot of bug fixes and improvements as well as security fixes (CVE-2014-8321, CVE-2014-8322, CVE-2014-8323 and CVE-2014-8324). More details can be found in the blog.

  • Airodump-ng: Fixed GPS stack overflow.
  • Airodump-ng: Fixed stopping cleanly with Ctrl-C.
  • Airmon-zc: better handling for when modules are not available (incomplete)
  • Airmon-zc: users can now start the monitor interface again to change channels
