Salted Hash Kracker Description
Salts are primarily aimed toward protecting your files against dictionary attacks, as well as other types or precomputed break-in attempts. They are also useful in the case of online passwords, since most of the users use the same ones across multiple websites and they leave themselves vulnerable to a multitude of threats.
Recover passwords from salted hash text
Salted Hash Kracker is an application that enables you to retrieve such passwords, in case you forget them and you need to access a website or unlock some files on your computer. The method used for recovery uses a word list, also called a dictionary file, which contains a long list of usual words that might contain your own combination.
In order to achieve this, you have to provide the application with the appropriate salted hash text for your password. In addition, you can also specify the salt position relative to the text, as in whether it is at the beginning or at the end of the hash sequence. In case you want to perform a regular scan, the respective field can be left blank.
Add your own dictionary file
To aid in the process, you can add your own, customized word list into the mix to properly search the text. Although the file can be created by you, since it basically is a TXT document containing a list of words, it is only feasible if it is very large, so that it includes as many terms as possible. Hence, it can be counterproductive for you to create your own.
Furthermore, the application is capable of automatically recognizing the hash type when you enter the desired sequence and it can differentiate between MD5, SHA256 and SHA512. At the end of the recovery, you can also save a report detailing the entire process and save it on your computer under the HTML format.
Thanks to the wide variety of hash types supported and the compatibility with custom dictionary files, Salted Hash Kracker can quickly and efficiently recover your lost passwords. In addition, the entire procedure can be completed with just a few mouse clicks, since the rest is handled by the application.
