BRUTEFORCE HACKING – Bruteforce Calculator – A Visual Guide
Wonder why hackers use dictionaries that are precompiled?
Select the password length (8 or 10 characters)

The calculator will tell you how many days or years it would take to brute force.
If you are going to compile your own wordlist, use small data sets, compile 8 characters, then compile a file for 9 characters.
It is feasible to crack a password of 8 characters, it probably isn’t feasible to crack a password of 18 characters.
Use Graphics cards rather than your CPU for cracking. GPU’s are much faster.
