Hi Guys,

I need some help. I am brand new to hashcat. I have seen that the program suports bitcoin wallets. I have searched and searched but cannot find a tutorial on how to run hashcat with a bitcoin wallet....

Again im brand new...so i loaded the walley into the hashcat GUI , selected sha 256 , used combination, uploaded a dictionary and hit start....

again not really knowing what im doing...hashcat started and quickly told me that there were no hashes loaded...

Is it possible to use the software with a wallet....im assuming i need to somehow extract a hash from the wallet and then run hashcat ?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance
You won't get any explanation/help for the GUI here (it's a third party tool and we don't give support for it here). Use the command prompt (cmd).

See https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=example_hashes :
bitcoin is hash type -m 11300 = Bitcoin/Litecoin wallet.dat

you extract the "hash" with bitcoin2john.py (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/magnum...in2john.py)

make sure that the format is exactly the same as the example hash (e.g. remove file names whenever they are in the bitcoin2john.py output).

Thanks for the reponse.....as you have seen im completely a noob when it comes to this....again im sorry for all the questions but how do i exactly run the bitcoin.py

i clicked on the link you provided...do i copy that into a cmd screen ?

Thanks in advance
You need to run it with python (I think you should run it with python 2.7).
Yes, after installing python (and setting it up correctly in your PATH variable), you just run

Code:
python bitcoin2john.py wallet.dat

remember: the output format must be adapted to the one mentioned in the example hash page (no file names within the "hash" etc)
