beginner is cracking his first md5
Hi there, i am very new at this...but interessted in, how things works,
i like knowledge, so then i want to ask some questions...

It took some time, until i get it running with GUI. But the HaskillerGui shows always the wrong Path.
And i cant save any settings...dunno*

Also take some time to find a 16 digit password xD

So now i crack my first password, finally.
I have made some passwords md5 online encrypted (no salt or something) and try to crack them with hc.

Windows 7
i7 4790
16GB DDR3 (2x8GB)
Radeon R9 390 (4GB)

My Setting is
- Brute-force
- Charset1:\combined\German.hcchr
- Charset2:?dabcdef
- Mask:\rockyou-1-60_cleaned.hcmask
- inputfile is just a TEXT with Hash inside

- 46 minutes running time
- 70384 kh/s (70.44 ms)
- Recovered nothing

Password is just
- 74147
- c613df44969c7946afc40efaacdc99d0 (MD5)

At first:
-1. Are my settings stupid? i think yes...because checking the candidates in hc-status, tells me,
there are too much letters, but wow* the complexity is crazy, 8 letters and highly random...
and there are also variatins like "xyxy1212"...i am am fascinated

1. How to find out wich encrypted style is used?
2. what should i set up for the above passwort and crypt-style?
2a. what should i use for "123abc"?
2b. what should i use for "abcdef"?
2c. what should i use for "$$abc"?
3. can i crack more hashes stored in on textfile, with same crypt-style?
4. do i need uncheck "CPU only" to use GPU also?

I think thats all for now.

And hopefully i find some german tutorial stuff.
if anybody know anything....tell me

Hello and welcome. Starting with the HashkillerGUI is a good idea, but you have to make a few changes. One is unchecking "CPU only", the other is to point the Hashcat Path to the right directory where your hashcat resides. With Brute-force you also should set the Password Length.

1. I'm not quite sure what you mean by "encrypted style". If you mean the type of hashing being used, it's necassary to know that before. You encrypted with MD5, so hash type is MD5.
2. Mask: ?d?d?d?d?d
2a. Mask: "123abc" -> ?d?d?d?l?l?l
2b. Mask: "abcdef" -> ?l?l?l?l?l?l
2c. Mask: "$$abc" -> ?s?s?l?l?l (if "$" is supposed to mean special characters)
3. Yes, and you should only use hashes of the same hash type in one file. Other hashe types than the one you try cracking end up in error messages.
4. Yes. Otherwise your GPU will not be used.

There are some tutorials in german on Youtube.
Happy trying Wink

No it's not.

For clearifying:

- of couse i mean, find out the hashtype (md5,sha1...) there no way to detect any type? i think u can find out characteristics, like length, order,complexity...?

- so if i have MD5 i should only need
:: the mask you type
:: but wich Character Set? or is it obsolete if i set up mask? i know i can also combinate
:: choose hash type
:: format "plain"
:: password length i suppose, because hashes has no infos of pass-lenght inside

And YES it WORKS...Thank u

For me its good at first, its easier, and it works, for now.
Remeber i am not a professional at all. Its just for expanding my knowledge.

well, see how you are confused by options that you don't actually need? Working with the command line is really easy. Have a look at the examples, check what the few options used do in --help and adopt accordingly. That's not rocket science. And you really learn about how to use the program.
