    Default Generating Password Lists

    Hi,

    What I want to create is a password list that is 8 characters long and consists of only uppercase alphabet characters. I'm familiar with PHP for programming so have been trying to think of a solution with this but hasven't been able to yet. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Slip

    p.S. Does aircrack-ng read lists by the end of line seperator?

    Hint:

    usage: /pentest/password/crunch <from-len> <to-len> [charset] [-t [FIXED@@@@] [-s startblock]

    You have room to store 26^8 = 208,827,064,576Bytes (~194.5GB) of data?
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Yes I have that storage space although it's impractical thinking about it now...

    It's for a special task that I want to crack - back to the drawing board for a rethink.

    If you did have this amount of free space, and then left your computer on for a few days/weeks to generate these wordlists? Could for example JTR / Cain and abel cope with a wordlist this size? If so how long do you think it would roughly take to go through all the combinations??

    Like I've already said, it's impractical think about it in hindsight...

    Sorry to burst your bubble

    Default Crunch with special chars

    Hi all - every time i try to generate a wordlist with the charset abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567890!"#$%&/()=?¡ (and it only happens when I add the special chars), I get weird errors saying that the bash something or other is incorrect, etcetera, etcetera.

    Is there a way I can add the chars I need without generating a terminal error? (i tried enclosing it in []'s, and also in ""'s. didn't work at all...)

    Here's what I use:

    crunch 5 8 abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567890!"#$%&/()=? > dict.txt

    Thanks!
