Hashcat passwordcracking separator unmatched
I have the task to crack a bunch of passwords like:
I was only told that these were Linux-like encrypted (I have removed the username: from the front, e.g.
::1:0:1:1:::from the end). I have read here that these are shadow style password hashes. Furthermore, I have tried to use hashcat 0.49 to crack these passwords. However, when trying the following command I got the following result and I cannot figure out why:
hashcat-cli64 -m 10 -o found.txt ..\..\1 dictionaries\Top10000.dic
I have also tried the example from here, and it worked, so I probably have an error in the command.
I am using the dictionary of InsidePro. Am I using the right m parameter (md5($pass.$salt))? If not, what would be the proper one?
I believe those hashes are MD5(Unix) format, so -m500. You can compare your hashes to the ones here: hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=example_hashes.
By the way, $1$DcuX.dRK$bR4utyGQ4ET4sobpMMtfo0:bb
Thank you for the link. However, I don't quite understand why :bb at the end. I have stated in my post that I have removed ::1:0:1:1::: from the end of each of the passwords.
