Cracking#

  • This looks like a md5 hash to me
  • As we know that hashes are one way so there’s not much that we can do other than using a wordlist and guessing it.
  • There’s a tool to crack hashes called hashcat which can be used to crack hashes using a widely used wordlist named as rockyou.txt

Using hashcat to crack this

 hashcat -m 0 "3c80b091de0981ec64e43262117d618a" rockyou.txt --force
