Using Wordlist question - Hookeo - 11-05-2015

When I am using a worlist, if I tell it to check through a folder called 'wordlist', will it run through each file within the folder?  Or is there something that it needs to do in order to iterate through each file?

RE: Using Wordlist question - philsmd - 11-05-2015

yeah, just specify the folder and it will run through each and every dict, also see https://hashcat.net/wiki/frequently_asked_questions#how_to_use_multiple_dictionaries

even the usage info should tell you that this works:
Usage: oclHashcat [options]... hash|hashfile|hccapfile [dictionary|mask|directory]...

The only "problem" as mentioned also on that very same FAQ section is that whenever the dictionaries within the folder have the same words, work will need to be redone. so sometimes (or most of the times?!) it makes sense to have a well-prepared, sorted and uniqued wordlist.
