Needs moar Brute Force

Brute Forcing is a method of cracking passwords that involves rotating through over 9000 randomized strings until the correct one is discovered. There are two forms of brute force attacks: one is dictionary style, where many pre-made strings are tried, while the other creates random strings from numbers and/or integers. The former is faster, but does not always work, while the latter is Slowpoke but will eventually get it.

Note: All brute force attacks are logged and can get you v&/b&, so if you are going to brute, be sure that:

  • The admins never check logs.
  • The server is on some poorly managed shitty shared host.
  • You do it during a time of the day when traffic is high (for high traffic addresses.)
  • You do it during a DDoS attack (when admins won't be able to tell what the fuck is happening.)


A file that contains a large number of words. Used for brute forcing passwords. Normally in a .txt format or some other easily readable and editable format.

This RAR file contains another RAR, which contains 43 text files. Each one contains 100,000,000 lines of words; that's 4,300,000,000 (4.3 billion) combinations.

I included a merge script for those who are disabled and can't cat. Just go to the /mergeLinks/ directory and ./
It will also delete the original (un-merged) files. DO NOT OPEN THE TEXT FILE WHEN MERGED.

You will need approximately 30 gigabytes of free space to extract this.
