Password Cracker: Mobile



This module uses Hashcat to identify weak passwords that have been acquired from Android systems. These utilize MD5 or SHA1 hashing. Android (Samsung) SHA1 is format 5800 in Hashcat. Android (non-Samsung) SHA1 is format 110 in Hashcat. Android MD5 is format 10. JTR does not support Android hashes at the time of writing.

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/crack_mobile
msf auxiliary(crack_mobile) > show actions
msf auxiliary(crack_mobile) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(crack_mobile) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(crack_mobile) > 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.
