Thanks everyone who has responded, I will definitely be checking out
MDK3 in the not so distant future. I do have one question though, a
bunch of you have said that doing this isn't really useful or
practical. I'm wondering why? If I'm doing a PenTest when there isn't
any hosts connected to the client's wifi AP and it's 'cloaked', I
could be missing an attack vector. I'm probably missing something so
please let me know if I've overlooked something.
