Splitting Hashes - verticalroll - 05-07-2020


Is there is a way to split a hash in half, for example the below hash is of a 10 character password Alpha-numeric [A-Z 0-9]

Mask attack with ?H?H?H?H?H?H?H?H?H?H takes 8 days but if I were to split the hash in 2 and crack 5 characters at a time would take 3 seconds.

Anyone knows if this is possible?

No. Any hashing algorithm that allowed that would be deeply flawed.

There are some that do allow this - such as pre-NTLM classic LANMan (LM) hashes. But that was a dramatic error in implementation.
