Mr. Smashy, a security developer, announced his latest Raspberry Pi-based creation on Twitter: a WiFi hacking module based on the Pi Zero W. He also released a DIY guide on how to make one for yourself. What do you need to make this hacking gadget?

A Rasperry Pi Zero W, a micro USB cable, a micro SD card, a power bank, and a small case to hold everything together. Mr. Smashy's WiFi hacking module runs Raspbian Buster, the Pi's default operating environment, off the SD card, with the hacker-friendly re4son kernel.

Re4son supports WiFi monitoring and injection functionality. While Kali isn't used here, Raspberry Pi hackers frequently run that security-centric Linux distro under the re4son kernel. Mr. Smashy's tool provides support for popular WiFi monitoring apps like Aircrack-ng.

What can you do with the device once you have it set up? If you're a red team penetration tester, you could use it for white hat pen-testing ops. You could also use it to test out your own network's security. As with any hacking platform, though, we encourage you to be responsible with this tool.
