About
Hashcat is an advanced password cracker that employs your GPU, used via CLI. While you'll have to download the official binaries to use it on Windows, it comes packaged with kali Linux. There is a GUI for Windows, which I'll go over in another thread.

  • World's first and only in-kernel rule engine
  • Free
  • Open-Source (MIT License)
  • Multi-OS (Linux, Windows and OSX)
  • Multi-Platform (CPU, GPU, DSP, FPGA, etc., everything that comes with an OpenCL runtime)
  • Multi-Hash (Cracking multiple hashes at the same time)
  • Multi-Devices (Utilizing multiple devices in same system)
  • Multi-Device-Types (Utilizing mixed device types in same system)
  • Supports distributed cracking networks (using overlay)
  • Supports interactive pause / resume
  • Supports sessions
  • Supports restore
  • Supports reading password candidates from file and stdin

Ah 'cracking' share Albus - I am really impressed with its features and my favourite being its the fastest cracker! I remember the days when it would take weeks upon weeks to crack a simple password, now it won't take half as long!
Nice Share Albus!:)

You're legit commenting on everything, aren't ya? xD


@Albus: I like me some CLI. I'll explain why... I like CLI because when the project manager stands over my shoulder, he has no idea what's happening. Wink

It would be rude for me to ignore a post!
And I must investigate into that CLI, heard it is good from a few people!!
