Some general Hashcat questions. - decoy5657 - 09-03-2010 03:14 PM
I'm new to using anything other than the age old Cain and Abel. Trying out Hashcat to crack 2 Domain Cached Credential hashes. I know the passwords are between 5 and 10 characters, any combo, so I'm brute forcing with a full charset. This is a proof of concept that current password requirements are pretty weak in our organization.
That's my current output.
I assume that it's testing 6.09 million words per second, correct?
Looking over at this thread: http://hashcat.net/forum/thread-21.html I see the benchmark speeds and am amazed.
Is that million per second, or thousand per second?
I understand that MD5 is probably a lot faster than DCC (domain cached creds) I'm just trying to get an understanding on this process.

Bruteforcing DCC using CPU is really old school, ancient school I may say.
OpenCLHashcat supports DCC.
You'll have better speeds on GPU.
That's millions p/s.

Well, I quit gaming about 5 years ago and quit paying attention to video cards over 40 or so dollars. Now it seems like I should go get one in the 150 dollar price range and I'd probably be slobbering all over the results.
Kind of hard to believe... 6 to 820 million per second? Phew.

You're comparing MD5 on GPU to DCC on 2 core CPU.
Kind of wrong.
Check my bench to see more light.
