I've been messing with Hydra (Brute Force) to solve the "Damn Vulnerable Web App" brute force section but the problem is when I use http-get-form it said:

Warning: child 1 seems to have died, restarting (this only happens if a module is bad)

And the brute force command is:

hydra http-get-form \
      "/dvwa/vulnerabilities/brute/#:username=^USER^&password=^PASS^&Login=Login:Username and/or password incorrect" \
      -l admin -P /root/Desktop/wordlists/test.txt -w 30

I can't find out why the module is bad.

  • have you tried dropping the "#" from your URL? DVWA doesn't need it. – schroeder May 24 '12 at 1:15
  • Yes I did and replaced it with "index.php" but still the same issue – AmA May 24 '12 at 10:09
hydra -l admin -P /root/Desktop/wordlists/test.txt dvwa http-get-form "/dvwa/vulnerabilities/brute/index.php:username=^USER^&password=^PASS^&Login=Login:Username and/or password incorrect."
  • that targets a different page on the dvwa site – schroeder Jun 1 '12 at 4:08
  • Yes I did and it's working fine but I wanna know how can you do this command to sub directory such as: /dvwa/vulnerabilities/brute – AmA Jun 3 '12 at 14:58
  • @AmA I have edited my answer, have you tried it? – pl1nk Jun 4 '12 at 0:23
