XAMPP SETUP On the victims machine, start all available server modules, Apache, My SQL, File Zilla, Mercury.
To find these pre-made rule sets, go to root directory and type Before password cracking commences, it is required to specify what type of algorithm was utilised to hash the passwords.
There are multiple hash identification tools or services online, but for this particular scenario on its own compares hashes to words as they appear in wordlists.
Normal output is suitable for single hosts or very small networks.
is my favourite output option as it is the most flexible.
The processor that is utilised for hash cracking is Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz.
The virtual machine where Kali runs is set to take advantage of all 4 cores however, I’m not sure how the virtual environment impacts the performance of the processor.
The output formats also ensure that the output can be utilised in harmony with other required pieces of software, such as Metasploit.
The output examples presented in this post are a result of a private network scan.
From pre-pending characters, through character swaps, to ASCII value incrementing, as well as functions of all previous rule sets, passwordspro has it all.
At this point there’s not many hashes left, so it shouldn’t take very long.
XML files can be opened in web browsers and also implement in Metasploit to populate workgroups very easily.
