I hope this is in the right section now.
I've been trying to crack my email account with hydra and I failed.
The server I've been trying to attack provides ssl, so maybe that's why I failed when I was trying to use pop3 protocol, so then
I checked links from this site: http://www.thc.org/thc-hydra/ and still nothing.
I had many errors from hydra, but when I used with syntax"
(I also tried to modify the syntax after hhtps-form-post, but I failed or did something wrong.)
hydra -l firstname.lastname@example.org -P /root/Desktop/testdic.txt -v <serverIP> https-form-post "/index.cgi:login&name=^USER^&password=^PASS^&login=Login:Not allowed" &
it returned: "1 of 1 target successfully completed, 4 valid passwords found"...
I loged in to my account and checked, that the server IP and 443 port are correctly used by me in hydra.
The path to the dictionary above, is a text file I created, containing like three bad passwords and one legit one.
I've been using Backtrack for some time now, but I'd rather consider myself as noobie.
What am I doing wrong?
I'm using backtrack 5 installed on usb.
