Network audit software

Wireless Air Cut, or Waircut for short, is a portable and free tool for network auditing. It checks your wireless connection security and ensures that your router isn’t vulnerable to external attacks.

Useful functions

Most people care about their security on public wireless networks, but they don’t think about it much when using the home router. However, performing a quick checkup can mean a lot for your internet security, and Waircut can facilitate that.

The primary function of this tool is ensuring that your Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) protocol is enabled. By doing so, it helps you avoid security breaches.

Test your router

Apart from checking the WPS wireless connection, Waircut tests the strength of your router. It uses various brute-force and pixie-dust attacks which hackers could take advantage of to enter your network.

Moreover, it can audit your pin security. It comes with a continually-updating generic pin set library and tells you whether your network password is easily discoverable. If you want to use a WPS pin instead, then you can take advantage of the several generation algorithms.

User interface

This program doesn’t boast a modern UI look, but it’s highly functional and easy to navigate, displaying all relevant information in clearly-labelled windows. You can use Waircut in several languages on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and Windows 10. Unfortunately, it doesn’t run on other systems.

Installation

Before you launch Waircut, make sure that you have a Wi-Fi protected setup etiquette installed on your PC. The setup isn’t that straightforward, requiring that you install Jumpstart, a wireless network management software first.

Later, it might require that you disable User Account Control on Windows 10 before it can successfully operate.Otherwise, Waircut is a safe program since you don’t have to install it. You merely unzip the file to a folder and launch it.

Could be better

In a world where programs such as Nessus and Acunetix are setting the standard for web security apps, Waircut falls short of the mark. It’s super-handy and easy to use, but its performance issues reduce its practicality, making it better to go for an alternative.
