hashcat working in new Win10 Bash
#1
If you're unaware Microsoft added Bash support in the latest Windows 10 (Build 14316).  Thought I'd give hashcat a try and it works!

Had to install texinfo from repository manually (probably other packages as well I'm forgetting) but was able to compile from GitHub source.

Code:
root@localhost:/mnt/c/Users/forumhero/hashcat# ./hashcat-cli64.bin -b
Initializing hashcat v2.00 with 4 threads and 32mb segment-size...

Device...........: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5300U CPU @ 2.30GHz
Instruction set..: x86_64
Number of threads: 4

Hash type: MD4
Speed/sec: 42.87M words

Hash type: MD5
Speed/sec: 34.78M words

This is awesome because we can now run Windows as the OS and have the ability to compile latest code for hashcat and other tools as well.

Code:
