    Default No ssh2 on Hydra - What about Bt4final?

    Hi forum,

    just tried a SSHv2 brute force on a test machine using Hydra on BT4 pre.

    # hydra -l root -P /home/user/dict 169.254.1.2 ssh2
    Error: Compiled without LIBSSH support, module not available!

    that sounds very ugly! Since today I have no time to download and install BT4 final, can someone of you confirm that?

    Thanks, bye.

    Yes, it works. Just tested. Here is the output:
    Code:
    root@bt:~# hydra -l root -P /pentest/passwords/wordlists/darkc0de.lst 192.168.1.1 ssh2
    Hydra v5.4 (c) 2006 by van Hauser / THC - use allowed only for legal purposes.

    Obviously it gave an error since my gateway doesn't use ssh. I guess that's the source of the error.

    hydra was quite buggy in the prefinal:

    .) ssh problem
    Hydra compiled without LIBSSH support - Remote Exploit Forums

    .) form based problem
    hydra crashes on form based auth - Remote Exploit Forums

    hopefully both of them are fixed in the final ... they were reported a while ago

    Obviously XHydra works in backtrack 4 final,however, is the options_new error related to the gateway not using SSH or is it something else? I attempted to use hydra against de-ice pentesting discs, it worked in Backtrack 3 but this is a new error to me. Ideas anyone?

    Thumbs up Re: No ssh2 on Hydra - What about Bt4final?

    No, that's a genuine error.

    To get it to run, apt-get upgrade

    Just tested it on an actual host and it works now.

    Hey, I just installed BT 4 Final and am getting the same options_new error when I try to run hydra against ssh2. I ran apt-get upgrade and update but nothing was returned so hydra wasn't fixed. Do I need to add or change my repositories?

    Sorry to reopen an old thread.

    The apt-get update and apt-get upgrade fixed the problem with hydra, but it deleted "openvas-nvt-sync". Is this supposed to happen (IE: does apt take over in updating the openvas plugins?).

    Edit: apt-get install openvas-menu fixes this.
