target specific dictonary
#1
Hello forum,

Since I did never used a password generator in the past, i am concerned how easy an "ennemy" (with the knowledge of my hobbies, names of my family members, and my website), would be able to tailor a target specific wordlist in order to gain permission.

I do know applications such as Wordhound and wyd are made for that purpose. But since there are so few infos/howto's available about them, i am not able to operate the properly (at least WH).

Questions:
- Should applications for the desscribed purpose, support multi-language corpus?
- are - beside Wordhound and wyd - alternatives around?


Thank's a lot for any feedback!

John
