    Default Hydra brute force on login.php

    I'm trying to brute force my dvwa, so I know that username and password is correct, but I must not be doing something right (user issue).... Below is the output and command string I'm using. No matter what username and password I use, I get the same output, so I know it can not be working. Could someone please help me find what other form or string I'm missing? Thank you very much!

    root@bt:~# hydra -V -l admin -p XXXXX -s 80 -f http-post-form "/dvwa/login.php:usrname=^USER^&pass=^PASS^&submit=Login: Login failed"

    maybe you should try hydra v7, the changelog said the http-form module has been updated

    I'm not sure that the latest Hydra, 7.4.2, can even guess something. Today I've done some tests using DVWA's BruteForce module and the output was the same for the both situation when the wordlist file contains or not the correct password:

    hydra -V -l admin -p /media/Pluto/final-wordlist.lst -s 80 -f http-post-form "/dvwa/login.php:username=^USER^&pass=^PASS^&submit=Login : Login failed"

    1 of 1 target successfully completed, 1 valid password found - It doesn't say which password anyway

    Now I'm wonder, do I miss something or I'm doing something wrong?
    Everyone has started from ZERO. I'm not an exception but I'm trying to hear more than speak too much.
