Hi everyone,
 I wrote a small app that suggests default passwords for visible wifi
networks (currently only some Telefonica & Jazztel Wifis in Spain, but
could be extended). Not a big deal (less than 400 lines of code with
the GUI), but some people asked me to release it, so here it is.

THIS IS IMPORTANT. This program is not intended for hacker wannabes.
This is meant ONLY for network administrators. Use *only* with
permission of the wifi admin.

More often than not, network administrators have to deal with clients
or other administrators how know very little about wifi security. It
is not uncommon to find wifis with default passwords. This program
suggests passwords for the wifis it detects, and presents the
information in a visually attractive way (tray icon with popup menu)
so that your customers/collaborators fully understand HOW EASY IT IS

NOTE: at the present time, this only works with Telefonica Spain's
WPA2 default passwords (and maybe Jazztel's). If the default password
of your wifi can be automatically generated from "open" or publicly
visible parameters, feel free to write the algorithm in Haskell, send
it to me and I'll see if I can add it here.

Code, Installation, readme, and other instructions:

During execution, you should see an icon on your traybar or
notification area.  Left click will show a menu with the list of wifis
it can suggest a password for. Clicking on one will copy the suggested
password to the clipboard. Right click on the icon to clear the wifi
list or quit the program.

Feel free to send me bugs reports and suggestions.

Hope it helps somebody.
