What is a good resource for wordlists used in auditing passwords in non english languages. I have extensive wordlists in English ranging to several GB's, but can't find similar resources for other languages.

  • I would especially like to know about any password database leaks from non-English sites, for training password entropy algos. – bobince Dec 27 '11 at 9:21
  • I would like to know how you deal with different encodings? This is really important when dealing with non-English dictionaries. Is there a magical incantation I can use with recode or iconv to convert all of them safely to UTF-8 or something common? – Marcin Jan 25 '12 at 14:33
  • @SonnyOrdell Wouldn't a really great English password dictionary/ rainbow table eventually cover other languages? – cutrightjm Mar 19 '12 at 12:36
  • @ekaj Would it still be an English dictionary in that case? – Sonny Ordell Mar 20 '12 at 21:16
  • @SonnyOrdell I guess, technically, if you have a good enough rainbow table (It would be freaking huge), it is every language. – cutrightjm Mar 21 '12 at 2:16

If you see this question here: Where can I find good dictionaries for dictionary attacks? you will find many good sites for downloadable dictionaries. However for language specific dictionaries I would recommend these:

They got a whole lot of different languages.

  • I did see that question before posting, but most of those sites have only very very tiny dictionaries for other languages. – Sonny Ordell Dec 26 '11 at 0:18
