Hashcat + wlangenpmkocl how to convert back to plaintext ?
Hi everyone !

So I'm testing hashcat on my network, first I tried with a dictionary with 1 word on mode 2500, this was successful.

Next up I used wlangenpmkocl (-a mode) to make a pmk dictionnary with again the same word, mode 2501 this time as 2500 fails (obviously).

It cracks successfully again, but this time the potfile returns the key instead of plaintext.

How do we convert the key back to plaintext ?

(added truncated to hide part of the key)

type hashcat.potfile

Thank you very much for the support and the incredible work put into this program.

EDIT: Stumbled on this:

It answers all the questions except one, what happens if you use rules ? What then ?


EDIT2: Ugh the answer is to brute force it with the same rules isn't it ? GAAAHHHH IT'S JUST A GIANT CIRCLE
cat PMK-FILE | cut -d ':' -f 1 | hashcat -m 2501 -w 4 -a 0 HASHFIRE -r RULEFILE

So for any other noobs hopelessly lost I think this is the answer.
