    Lightbulb Brutus Password Cracker

    A tool by the name of Brutus has quickly become one of the best password crackers on the internet, along with Unix's Crack, Nt's NTCrack, John the Ripper, and The L0pht Crack Series. But unlike those password crackers this one is complely remote based.
    Brutus can remotely crack SMB (netbios), telnet auth, HTTP Basic Auth, HTTP Form, POP3, and FTP sessions via brute force attacks. Brutus also has the ability to you to create more BAD or Brutus Application Definition these are custom attacks on Remote applications.

    To do this you have to Define the Sequence this is done by going into the dropdown bar labled "Type" then clicking "Custom" This will cause a new button to appear in the Authentication area of the program it's labled"Define Sequence". When you Click it a box appears named Brutus - Authentication Definiton Sequence



    As you can see it has Many options to create custom BAD files.

    Here are some more screen shots of the program



    This is the Main Application Window.

    Hey ArPaNET,

    This thread is 2002 vintage, so it was more relevant then? Right now it is of interest to students only, I would have thought?

    It was one of, if not the, greatest brute forcer of back then?...................... next thing someone will mention SubSeven............. and the tears of nostalgia will really flow

    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Can someone help me?

    I have brutus and whenever i use it everything works fine except what happens is it will attempt the password once and only once and will tell me the password is the first letter in the list i have and i have tried different lists and they all do the same thing. Does anyone know how i can fix this?

    I hope we don't start bashing the member for reviving an old thread. It's high time we implement automatic closure system for all threads based on time / inactivity.

    Dang-it Byte. I already had my rubber mallet primed and readied.

    Hi, Some Tuna, and welcome to AO.

    Please start a new thread for your question, as it relates to a problem you have in getting the application to work, rather than to the application itself.
