Line Exception using Example Hash md5
#1
First time using hashcat and i wanted to see how it works but when i run the line :
hashcat64.exe -m0 -a3 -o cracked.txt hash.txt

i get the error:


Hash 'hash.txt': Line-length exception

No hashes loaded.

all that is in the file hash.txt is the example hash but nothing happens


Thanks for any help

Do you have extra (or too few) characters in your hash.txt file? This is what the line-length exception error means.

Code:
$ cat - >hash.txt
8743b52063cd84097a65d1633f5c74f5

$ cat hash.txt
8743b52063cd84097a65d1633f5c74f5

$ hashcat -m 0 -a 3 -o cracked.txt --quiet hash.txt

$ cat cracked.txt
8743b52063cd84097a65d1633f5c74f5:hashcat

Also if you are using hashcat 4.x, you probably want to add -O (use optimized kernels) unless you expect the password to be very long.

I dont think there is to many or little characters all there is in the text file is:

hashcat cannot find your "hash.txt" file

Ah, indeed! Very easy to forget that one - even if you're not new!
