Brute Force Password Cracker
CyanCoding (2132)
I built the Brute Force Password Cracker as a fun program to test out passwords, and to test my knowledge of Python 3 and its libraries.

Thanks for 1,000 likes :D

don't worry people we're only at, uh, about 69B 420M passwords guessed so far

This is amazing!! I was thinking of building a program like this but I was just not advanced enough yet! This is so awesome!! Nice programming!!

maybe add \n at the end of each input? :) gj

I went to do something else (I putted a REALLY strong password) and I founded this 1 billion, 135 million passwords guessed so far...

@EitanGJ It likely won't find it just a 6 character password it has to go through 2 GB of data to find if it isn't very lucky.
7 characters: 61 GB
8: 1 TB
9: 51 TB
10: 1 PB + 1463 TB

So in this project what i'm going to do?

I think it would be better to use the re module to check what characters are used in the password

CyanCoding's BFPC cracked the password a in 1 tries and 1 second!

That's approximately 25891 guessed passwords per second!

I typed in "password" as my password and its found 400 million passwords that aren't "password"

I did the math and a 6-Digit password can take up to 25 days to crack

After 2 billion, 240 million passwords guessed it gave up lol

@CyanCoding why don't you post anymore!? 😫😫😫

helloyanis (11)

I feel like "¤" is not in the character list. Just tried having my password as just ¤ and it says 350 millions lol

let's go, made it 1111 :). Amazing program btw

Petition for @CyanCoding to make a password checker that doesn't do brute force but uses the passwords people input to make a database and then use the database to try out common passwords. (AI maybe?)

Okay, I did the 1101st vote. Uh, yeah. I guess this is not a milestone, but still.


yooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 1099th updoot~!

@CyanCoding make this into an ai that will try to guess your number that you eneter or something like that
