hello guys!
in this video (nothing exceptional) I was inspired by the documentation of metsploit / auxiliary / scanner! there is no sound because my old pc crashes with music! if you want to watch it:
thanks a lot!:p

Hi great video. I have a question though. When I tried to bruteforce my own routers login I got this error: "No URI found that asks for HTTP authentication"

I know for a fact I login to my router through http so what might be the problem here? Thanks.

what "AUTH_URI " do you set? default is automatic!
look the options: & good luck bye :)
msf > use auxiliary/scanner/http/http_login
msf auxiliary(http_login) > show options

Since i'm attacking my own router I would put as the URI option?

That would be the routers URI, I think.

sorry I did not realize that forces access to routers!
from what little I know I've never done a bruteforce a router with metasploit_http_login! I would use hydra or medusa!
the tests I did were mysql access platform:
xmapp(work fine) and wordpress(work fine to!), etc! Sorry ... and bye:)

EXCUSE I wanted to say that I tested ausiliary / scanners / http / http_login of using XAMPP have authentication of apache server. If you are trying to use
WORDPRESS use: ausiliary / scanners / http / wordpress_login_enum ....should use a platform in mysql(now i'dont remember...)bye:)sorry my language!

i seen the video its very good... when i goto practical session

when set USER_FILE and PASS_FILE to /root/Desktop/user.txt and /root/Desktop/pass.txt respectively. and this files are empty.. Is it correct?

when hit run command
its not works like brute force... its only try 5 user and password and its says that completed .

i want to run brute force(all possible combination) .. please help to provide set by step

ramkicse hi,
You need to create the "dictionaries" user.txt & password.txt as you want!!!!
the greater the amount of "user-line" & "passwd line" the more you increase the number of "probability" of success! Remember to put the RIGHT-ONE! in your"create dictionary". + Large and "targeted" the dictionaries = + number of combinations = a long time of analysis.bye :)
