Post: RE: Brute force AES-256 knowing 90% of pass?

To be sure if you got the hash correct or not, you could use the example hash (https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=example_hashes) and see if yours looks like that one. If yes, the problem is somewh...

Your format is wrong for the mask. It appears from your description, that all 4 of those characters appear in the password, you just don't know where. In which case, the mask file need to be carefully...

I think Centurio has pretty much given you the correct info. If you know something about the 5 digits, you could narrow things down further. For example, 5 digits could be a date. Do you have any idea...

Overall, if I understand correctly, it sounds like the main benefit of leaving the potfile, if using --remove and you already have a backup of your original hash list, is preventing a loss of progress...

I like to run a series of attacks in series. One thing I noticed between runs that takes up some time is the parsing of the potfile. Looking at the help, there is the option to disable it, but should ...

While hashcat can use just a CPU, it is far, far faster to use a GPU. I recommend a good video card (or 2+), then the proper drivers. The guys in the hardware forum could help you more with that than...

I'd guess no. This attack isn't a way to crack the actual password, but trick the endpoint into connecting to another device with a known password.

Seconded Mem5's answer. You're missing the proper video drivers. Also hashcat-cli64 is from older versions of hashcat and obsolete. Not recommended to use.

Hashcat utilities rli and rli2 might do what you want, although it will take several passes if you have multiple dictionary files.
