How to get all candidates / results from hashcat?

I use the following to get me the input values to a SHA256 hash output

sudo hashcat -a 0 -m1400 file_were_the_hash_is.txt list_of_passwords.txt

This seem to work fine. I however only get one candidate shown by hashcat. What am I missing to get all candidates, that my list_of_passwords.txt can create?

brute force – Specifying wordsets in variables within hashcat masks/rules?

Hashcat documentation shows the following variables that we can use inside masks:

?l = abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
?d = 0123456789
?h = 0123456789abcdef
?H = 0123456789ABCDEF
?s = «space»!"#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@()^_`{|}~
?a = ?l?u?d?s
?b = 0x00 - 0xff

We can even create custom charsets (abc1234XYZ…) However, I wonder whether there is a way to do similar thing with wordsets (word1,word2,…)

?set1 = word1,word2,word3,... 

passwords – In Hashcat, How to generate combinatior attacks consisting of more than two words (in lenght)?

I am trying to make a combinator attack using just one dictionary:


And would like to try all 4-words-length permutations separated by commas:


hashcat – Password generation – Information Security Stack Exchange

I’m trying to generate all possible variation of a password.

The base word is like “PleaseSub!” and I need all possible version of it with uppercase, lowercase, etc.. I know there is something like 2^10 options but I can’t figure out how to generate it with crunch or any other tool.

Any idea?

how to use hashcat in python?

Basically, I want to crack hashes programatically using hashcat python without having to install hashcat binaries.

Python seem to have a module called hashcat ( but I couldn’t find any documentation on the web for how to use it.

Does anyone know how to crack hashes using python?

How to get time estimate for brute forcing hashes with Hashcat

I am trying to find the time estimate it will take hashcat to brute-force the retrieval of plain text to a hash, but can’t seem to find how.

I find a link like How long would it take to brute force an 11 character single-case alphanumeric password? that states an example of how to do so:

hashcat -a 3 -m 2500 -2 ?u?d hashcat-wpa2.hccapx ?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2

But I have 3 questions regarding this.

  1. When I try to run it I get an error saying hashcat-wpa2.hccapx: No such file or directory. What is the missing file? (a word list?) and where can I download it?
  2. What is ?u?d
  3. What is ?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2

Maybe someone more familiar with Hashcat can help? Thanks!

hash – Breaking Wifi password knowing its length of 8 [A-Z] alpha (upper-case) characters using Hashcat

I got the WPA handshake, now it’s turn to crack the password using Hashcat. First, I wanted to make a wordlist of passwords (A-Z) the length of 8, but Crunch (the tool in Kali Linux) said it will take 1TB of storage that I don’t have available, so I gave up that way. Is there any way to generate passwords (example: ABCDEFGH) and delete them after its use one by one, during the cracking process?

How long does it take to crack the password with i5-3320M CPU using Hashcat?
Is there any other way you recommend?

Hashcat – Why Does No Online Service Offer On-Demand Hacking?

And this work is directly related to the cost of electricity. Allowing people to monopolize GPUs for a long time for free is absolutely unworkable from a business point of view.

You also cannot compare this to an ordinary web server, since an ordinary web server comparatively takes only a tiny amount of work to serve you the website you requested. Nowhere near work would it take to break a hash.

If you want to break hashes in the cloud, there are several services that offer just that – for a fee, of course.
