Password hacking / password cracking – www.hashkiller.co.uk

12/06/2016

If password cracking is a subject that you’d like to find out more about, then I’d highly recommend www.hashkiller.co.uk.

Step 1 – Crack your MD5 hash

Decrypter/Cracker > MD5 Decrypter

hashkiller md5

Here you can see options for NTLM and SHA1 crackers.

Step 2 – paste in your hash

Paste your hash into the cracker – remember to enter the captcha in the bottom left hand corner

The hash shown is for the password “cracker” – lets see if hashkiller knows about it.

If Hashkiller has your password, the cracked password will appear.

The MD5 password that I hashed was “cracker” – which they instantly cracked 🙂  They offer the same online tools for both NTLM and SHA1 hashes.  Remember that you must use the correct hashing algorithm to crack a password.

There is one last point to consider;  if Hashkiller can instantly crack your password, then your password is not secure.

Step 3 – Unknown Hash – use Hash ID

Download Hash ID where the hashing algorithm is unknown.  This will ID the hash for you.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/hashidentifier/

hash id idenitify the hash

HASH ID will ID the hash being used

hash id md5 hash identified

If you can’t crack the hash directly – send it to http://www.hashkiller.co.uk where dedicated crackers will attempt to crack it.  They will be able to identify the hash by its characteristics eg wordpress MD 5 hashes:

 

Step 4 – Read the Forums

To really understand cracking, enjoy reading the forums, which include a password cracking request section if you need to crack your own password.
