CrackStation uses massive pre-computed lookup tables to crack password hashes.These tables store a mapping between the hash of a password, and the correctpassword for that hash. The hash values are indexed so that it is possible toquickly search the database for a given hash. If the hash is present in thedatabase, the password can be recovered in a fraction of a second. This onlyworks for "unsalted" hashes. For information on password hashing systems thatare not vulnerable to pre-computed lookup tables, see our hashing security page.
Pyrit is a tool for performing brute-force password guessing attacks against IEEE 802.11 WPA/WPA2-PSK authentication. It supports the creation of massive pre-computed rainbow tables of passwords stored in databases. Pyrit can be used on Linux, macOS and FreeBSD and is available for free.
Brutus is one of the most popular remote online password-cracking tools. It claims to be the fastest and most flexible password cracking tool. This tool is free and is only available for Windows systems. It was released back in October 2000.
Brutus has not been updated for several years. However, its support for a wide variety of authentication protocols and ability to add custom modules make it a popular tool for online password cracking attacks.
Medusa is an online password-cracking tool similar to THC Hydra. It claims to be a speedy parallel, modular and login brute-forcing tool. It supports HTTP, FTP, CVS, AFP, IMAP, MS SQL, MYSQL, NCP, NNTP, POP3, PostgreSQL, pcAnywhere, rlogin, SMB, rsh, SMTP, SNMP, SSH, SVN, VNC, VmAuthd and Telnet.
RainbowCrack is a password cracking tool designed to work using rainbow tables. It is possible to generate custom rainbow tables or take advantage of preexisting ones downloaded from the internet. RainbowCrack offers free downloads of rainbow tables for the LANMAN, NTLM, MD5 and SHA1 password systems.
OphCrack is a free rainbow table-based password cracking tool for Windows. It is the most popular Windows password cracking tool but can also be used on Linux and Mac systems. It cracks LM and NTLM hashes. For cracking Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, free rainbow tables are also available.
In this post, we have listed 10 password-cracking tools. These tools try to crack passwords with different password-cracking algorithms. Most of the password cracking tools are available for free. So, you should always try to have a strong password that is hard to crack. These are a few tips you can try while creating a password.
Besside-ng is a tool like Wesside-ng but it support also WPA encryption. Wich will crack automatically all the WEP networks in range and log the WPA handshakes.WPA handshakes captured can be uploaded to the online cracking service at Darkircop.org (Besside-ng Companion) to attempt to get the password and where provides useful statistics based on user-submitted capture files about the feasibility of WPA cracking.
There many wordlists that can be found on the web, But why store them in files when oclHashcat creates them on the fly. Another thing to keep in mind about wordlists, Not all wordlists you find online will be created for WPA/WPA2 as they need to start a 8 characters in length.

A specialized secure browser will automatically protect you from tracking cookies, email tracking pixels, and even browser fingerprinting. Avast Secure Browser is a free browser that defends your online privacy and security without needing any extra help.
LastPass is a free password manager that generates and stores an unlimited number of passwords while also syncing them across some, but not all, of your devices. Premium tiers offer unlimited device syncing, encrypted storage, YubiKey compatibility, and a shared family plan.
Billed as a privacy-protection extension, Blur is a secure password manager that also blocks trackers and masks your data. When you enter information into an online form, Blur lets you mask your real data behind randomly generated fake credentials. Email masking is free, but phone numbers and credit cards are covered only with a subscription.
Automated solutions have completely have changed the landscape of pen testing tools with improved efficacy and turnaround time. There has been continuous research and development to make more reliable and user-friendly tools. These tools do not fix the underlying security vulnerabilities. Instead, they are effective in finding common security vulnerabilities and providing suggestions for fixing those vulnerabilities. Before you begin looking for these free hacking tools online, it is imperative for you to evaluate the background of the assessment. This will shape your tool selection process.
Wireless attacks: Public WiFi, free WiFi, and personal hotspots on the go have increased the wireless playgrounds that the attackers can target. Attackers can hack into the network and can monitor the traffic in that network or crack the password and use your network for free. Just check the wireless networks that the laptop catches and you can see an example right there!
WPA/WPA2 cracking technique: Our devices have wireless passwords stored so that we do not enter the password on the same device again and again. The attackers take advantage of this by forcefully de-authenticating all the devices on the network. The devices will try to auto-connect to the access point by completing the 4-way handshake. This handshake is recorded and has the hashed password. The hashed password can be brute-forced by using a rainbow table.
Unlike most of the online websites that have their own database of MD5 and words, md5crack.com uses a combination of search engine indexes and rainbow tables to help search for a word matching the given MD5 hash. Free API usage without limitations is also available to everyone although the usage is closely monitored to prevent excessive use.
Hashkiller.co.uk has been around since 2007 and has decrypted over a whopping 43 billion MD5 hashes to date! The decryption form accepts up to a maximum of 64 MD5 hashes to check at a time. They have a public forum which is very helpful because anyone can sign up for a free account and post a hash cracking request as long as it is below 25 hashes.
Using the Silica wireless hacking tool sold by penetration-testing software provider Immunity for $2,500 a year, I had no trouble capturing a handshake established between a Netgear WGR617 wireless router and my MacBook Pro. Indeed, using freely available programs like Aircrack-ng to send deauth frames and capture the handshake isn't difficult. The nice thing about Silica is that it allowed me to pull off the hack with a single click of my mouse. In less than 90 seconds I had possession of the handshakes for the two networks in a "pcap" (that's short for packet capture) file. My Mac never showed any sign it had lost connectivity with the access points.
I then uploaded the pcap files to CloudCracker, a software-as-a-service website that charges $17 to check a WiFi password against about 604 million possible words. Within seconds both "secretpassword" and "tobeornottobe" were cracked. A special WPA mode built-in to the freely available oclHashcat Plus password cracker retrieved the passcodes with similar ease. 2b1af7f3a8
