[SOLVED] Help with special characters in aircrack/cowpatty
I've been stumped by this problem for a while.
When using aircrack or cowpatty, they can't seem to read my dictionary files correctly as I have special characters in it " !$)^ "
Aircrack will just say the password is not in the file, and cowpatty returns an error about an unexpected token " ') "
I've read, and re-read, this article on special characters
but I am still confused.
It seems learning about escape characters is a must
To sum it up briefly:
Before any special character (which includes a white space), insert a backslash " \ ".
would become: \£2\*\"s\*\!
