Changes and Updates
Kismet 2021-08-R1 brings a few notable updates:
UTF8/Unicode support in the UI
Kismet will now display non-ascii characters, emoji, and other similar encodings in the web UI. This also changes the broken octal encoding that used to be used for non-ascii characters and now uses proper octal encoding.
New WIDS alerts
Kismet now detects the VDOO RTL8170C exploits, and “funny” SSIDs that attack Apple products.
Small tweaks and improvements
Wigle CSV files now encode the Kismet version in the upload.
Client names are used in AP lists.
Initial support for environmental sensors connected to Kismet.
ticc2540/2531 udev rules.
Minor revamping of websocket timeouts.
Regex filtering added to the wiglecsv converter.
Quick copy-to-clipboard buttons for some common fields in the UI.
Handle URI parameters more correctly
Don’t spin on “Loading…” in the datasource window sometimes.
