    Default Problem with Wpcan Brute Forcer - BackTrack R5V3

    Hello everyone i recently start using the BackTrack linux and as you can assume i still meet some problems and difficulties with some of the tools included in the distribution. So my problem is that i'm trying to brute force a Wordpress site but the brute forcer seems to be frozen, it's staying on 0% for more than an hour, so the commands i used are as follow

    Code:
    root@bt:/pentest/web/wpscan# ruby wpscan.rb --url http://locahost/wp--wordlist darkc0de.lst --username admin
    NOTE: I have the darkc0de.lst copied to the /pentest/web/wpscan directory

    So looks like the brute forcer is starting without problems but its staying like this for a long period

    Code:
    [+] Starting the password brute forcer
    
      Brute forcing user 'admin' with 1707657 passwords... 0%
    Everything else is working just fine but that's the problem i can't figure. I was looking for a similar threads but i couldn't find anything useful

    I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. I am assured. Write to me in PM, we will communicate.

    hi
    I state not to be an expert:
    try to use the "flag"-v you will see scrolling through the "login attempts" while always having 0% ...
    I do not know if it is a bug?

    I did a little-test on my [vm] BT5-r3 (kde32) change with a smaller wordlist created by me and saved in / root / and gave me no problems ....

    root@bt:/pentest/web/wpscan# ./wpscan.rb --url bxxxxxxxxxxe.wordpress.com --wordlist /root/list.txt --username admin --threads 10
