Hey all,

I've been messing around with custom masks but still had a question I was hoping to shed some light on. Say I have a bunch of passwords that I want to bruteforce. If I know that the second character for all of the passwords is going to be a specific symbol, is there a way to configure hashcat to bruteforce, but to always set the second character to that symbol? I've been using ?l?u?d*@#! to specify those symbols, but is there a way I can specify a position?

I'm not sure if I'm explaining it well but would appreciate any input.
For example you can use:


LowerCase - Symbol - LowerCase - LowerCase

Interesting. So I can set that character to use a symbol, but is there way to specify a specific symbol for that character only, and have all other symbols added to the rotation for the rest of the characters?
If you have static characters in a password you can simply put them in the mask

?uasswo?ld12?d is a valid mask for example.
