Apply Pot File To Hashes



This module uses a John the Ripper or Hashcat .pot file to crack any password hashes in the creds database instantly. JtR's --show functionality is used to help combine all the passwords into an easy to use format.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/analyze/apply_pot
msf auxiliary(apply_pot) > show actions
msf auxiliary(apply_pot) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(apply_pot) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(apply_pot) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
