need help to crack MD5 passwords
#1
Hello,

I am a beginner at using hashcat and other hacking things. Recently I found some hashed passwords and I wanted to do crack them but I am not using The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali), I am using Ubuntu. So I installed it from apt. And I also downloaded rocyou.txt. But I am getting this error:

Code:
Use of -r/--rules-file and -g/--rules-generate only allowed in attack mode 0.

Then I tried to use it without any rules. 

Code:
hashcat -a 1 -m 0 hashesh.txt rockyou.txt

But it is showing this output.
Code:
Usage: hashcat [options]... hash|hashfile|hccapxfile [dictionary|mask|directory]...

Try --help for more help.


I really wanted to crack these passwords. If someone could help me crack them it would mean a lot.

wordlist is -a 0, -a 1 is for combinator, so:

hashcat -a 1 -m 0 hashesh.txt rockyou.txt

(also don't post the hasehs, it's against the rules)

I am sorry, I didn't know. I will remove them.
How can I use rules then?

Use attack mode 0 and you can use rules. In your example you are using attack mode 1.
