    How do I use large password lists?

    Hi, I have Kali Linux 64-bit on VMware and Windows 10 host. I'm using Metaplsoitable 2. I am trying to bruteforce SSH with Hydra and Ncrack. My question is, how do i use large wordlists? Hydra says a maximum of 50 million passwords. That's fine for rockyou.txt but I'd like to try a bigger wordlists. I read online to get crackstation (15GB) and crackstation-human-only. I also have weakpass 2p (28GB). So how do I use them on Hydra and Ncrack? I read Ncrack is faster. I can use crackstation with Ncrack but it lists "root" and then "random symbols" for the password. Rockyou.txt on Ncrack shows each password clearly (not symbols). So I'm not sure if Ncrack is correctly using the 15GB Crackstation list. Can anyone explain how to use my large wordlists? It seems strange I can't use any size. Please reply. Thanks

    I read to enter this...What file do I edit it to? It should increase Hydra's wordlist limit. Please reply. Thanks


    split -l MAX_LENGTH --additional-suffix=".lst" words.lst words_

    for user in words_*.lst
    do
    for pass in words_*.lst
    do
    hydra [[options] ...] -L "${user}" -P "${pass}" [[args] ...]
    done
    done
    rm -v words_*.lst

    maybe you should make a bash script and divide your list so you can repeat the process and many times and you wish
    dont know any other option

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I'll try crunch. Will my 1TB PC have enough space? I'd have to start the password at 8-12 characters. Will I have enough space to do all letters and numbers? Is there an easy way of doing this? What settings (letters and numbers) should I try with crunch? I'm using it on ssh, smtp and telnet. Metasploitable 2. Thanks again
