Full Version: Add min/max parameter to req (hashcat-utils)
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Could you add a paramater to specify minimum and maximum limit of characters found in string to be passed by req? For instance, if the password must have at least 2 numeric characters, the command would be:
$ ./req.bin 4 2 <dict.txt >2-digit.txt

If the output should have no more than 3 special characters, it would be:

$ ./req.bin 8 -3 <dict.txt >lt4-special.txt

No more than 5 non-alpha (can it work this way, or is '8' a negated set?):

$ ./req.bin 12 -5 <dict.txt >lt5-ds.txt

The reason for this request is that I have a huge amount of entries in my expanded wordlists which have multiple special characters and are unlikely to ever create a real plaintext when used in combinator or hybrid attacks. I want to reduce the expanded dictionaries to be concentrated on likely plaintext combinations.
All right, please add to Wiki Feature request section.
I added it as Accepted. Is that correct, or should it be Pending?
Accepted is correct. Thank you
Hi Atom,

I'm wondering how close are you from finishing this new Req feature?

Look forward to your reply
