Increment knowing the last chars of password
#1
Hi there,

I wonder if there is a way to instruct hashcat to make incremental brute force knowing the last chars of a password.

E.g. given I know the last three chars as "ord", would like to instruct hashcat to do:
ord
?aord
?a?aord
?a?a?aord
?a?a?a?a?aord
?a?a?a?a?a?aord

It would be something specular to https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=fre...e_password

regards,
essence

you can use attack mode 7 with a single-line dict

... or hashcat mask files (https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=mas...mask_files)
... or salted hash types instead of unsalted ones (if there are alternative -m modes available for that algorithm)
