Hi all
first of all thanks to all the hashcat community for the work and support.

i need to crack a password that i know is 18 characters long , it has no numbers, it can be upper case and lower case, and i know that its a phrase taken from a book.

so how can i limit the amount of repeated letters in the password
hoe the mask would look like?

if the password is 16 characters long i dont think a letter can appear more
than 5 or 6 times

thank you all.

you wouldn't use a mask attack for this, that would be impossible. straight or combinator attack would be your best bet.

you will need to make sure you are using v0.15 for this since previous versions had a 15 character limitation.
thanks, i have never used straight or conbination attack, i guess ill have to read more Smile

thanks for the reply
