Summary0005591: mdk4 won't deauth using blacklist -b option
DescriptionSo the following command I used
mdk4 wlan0mon d -c 1 -b dis.txt

If I don't use -b it deauthenticates fine but using -b blacklist won't deauth AP however mdk3 works fine with the above command.

Tested on Linux kali 4.19.0-kali5-amd64 0000001 SMP Debian 4.19.37-5kali1 (2019-06-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux

mdk4 does work fine with -b flag on parrot OS though.

Thanks for the report. Parrot OS and Kali ship the same package mdk4 with the same binary. I don't see why
 it would work on Parrot and not on Kali.
Please provides more details about the issue, about version packages and your kernel version (in Kali and Parrot).

Turns out mdk4 does not work with -b flag on both kali and parrot os.It's a bug in mdk4 not in kali or parrot.Reverting back few commits fixed the problem for me.I'm jotting steps here to fix mdk4 actually a temporary fix.

1) apt-get install pkg-config libnl-3-dev libnl-genl-3-dev libpcap-dev
2) git clone
3) cd mdk4
4) git checkout 879eb05ab4
5) git cherry-pick 767c304
6) make
7) sudo make install

After that mdk4 will work fine with mdk4 wlan0mon d -c 1 -b dis.txt
