Hashcat fails on MacBook hardware. Any cloud suggestions?
I am trying to learn hashcat for educational/white-hat purposes. It seems that whenever I run the tool using larger wordlists and/or masks of average complexity, it dies out with this error:
[i]Abort trap: 6[/i]
I believe this means that the device ran out of memory or something.
I have read on GitHub that MacBooks seem to be an unsuitable platform for hashcat, hardware-wise. So I am thinking of standing up a Linux environment on the cloud someplace for testing, like on AWS possibly.
Any recommendations for something like that?
you could try to use the git version from https://github.com/hashcat/hashcat

install git, make, gcc, sed and all the other common build tools and run
git clone https://github.com/hashcat/hashcat

cd hashcat/


./hashcat -b
