Instant Checkmate and Truth Finder hashes unfortunately haven't been cracked yet, despite many people's attempts including my own. They are scrypt hashes but they have something else applied to them s...

Firstly, comparison is done on the GPU too. Secondly, the amount of salts matters a lot. If you have 50 salts, it'll take 50x as long as 1 salt but the hashrate shouldn't change so in your example, it...

This card has multiple GPUs, so while it is a single card, it acts as 2 GPUs. Evaluating the card as a whole should be done on the total hashrate, not each device's individual performance. CUDA was pr...

This is a common error. Try using `--backend-ignore-cuda` and it should work, it's just because your hardware is very old that nvrtc isn't very happy and neither is k ali

You may have fake wallets but either way, you can either just backdate to release Hashcat or separate each individual hash into it's own file. That error can sometimes be ignored. Also, you may want t...

Most hashes are generated so quickly that measuring the time to generate one would be very inaccurate, hence why we usually measure per second, like with the -b benchmark option. if you really want to...

The -b flag gives you a benchmark speed you can go off. For example: hashcat -m 0 -b. Using -w will turn off the default to the optimised kernels, so you can do "hashcat -m 0 -b -w 4" for pure and "ha...

    Thread: Automatic /r stripping by hashcat?
Post: RE: Automatic /r stripping by hashcat?

In the case of the \r being embedded inside a plain like a\rb, Hashcat would find it as it would any other, just as long as it's not at the end as then it'd be considered as a multibyte newline ...

    Thread: Automatic /r stripping by hashcat?
Post: RE: Automatic /r stripping by hashcat?

Almost all programs accept both \n and \r\n newlines. It's not that it's stripping them, it's just reading the line and accepting \r\n as the newline. Usually, \n is Linux and \r\n is Windows

It's encrypted, you need the password to decrypt it, hence the "enc" in "encseed"

The password can unlock the wallet but if you don't even have a password, you can't decrypt it

By default, Hashcat wants to be GPU-accelerated so ideally, you'd only run it on a GPU, if present. They're often a factor or two faster than even top-end CPUs. If you really want to use CPUs, you can...
