hey am i doing anything wrong?
#1
Ive done this command and i really don't know what i am doing wrong 


hashcat64.exe -m3200 --weak-hash-threshold=0 --potfile-disable  $2y$06******************************************* rockyou.txt

but keep ending up with 0 recovered, im pretty sure the hash i am cracking isn't a bunch of mumble jumbo, but instead 2 words combined.


-kind regards

Robert

Hashcat won't crack the hash with attack mode 0 (-a 0) if the password is not present within the dictionary file (in your case the file rockyou.txt).

Make sure that you know the password and that it is present within the word list.

oh okay thx, should i try brute forcing then? like just generates random characters and compares it to the hash like ?d?d?d?d ???

If the password matches ?d?d?d?d then you should that. If not, then not.
