Rule file (very common 'complex' passwords)
#1
I work in a corporate environment at a helpdesk; In my experience, when users are required to enter a password containing at least:
- A capital letter
- A number
- a special character

90% of them do it this way:
Xxxxxn!

That means: they choose a name starting with capital letter, add a number and then put the exclamation mark. Attached is a rule file I generated to cover all the passwords of this format with numbers from 0 to 9999 with and without 'zero padding'. I'm new to hashcat and maybe there is a better way to do this (the file has many entries). But if it's deamed worthy maybe can be added to the hashcat release along with the other rules.

Hey, is it really 90% the ! character? Thanks for the rule!

Well... I never measured the percentage Smile, but the "!" character for some reason is the first one that comes to mind to most people when asked to provide "a special character".
