This is the command I am using and when I press Enter :

hydra -L username.txt -P passwords.txt localhost http-post-form "dvwa/login.php:username=^USER^&password=^PASS^&Login="Login Failed"

> This arrow shows up and no thing happen. I have no idea what to do. I searched on internet and could not find any help.

    Have you tried something else besides localhost? Like the actual URL? – schroeder Jan 16 '18 at 9:04
  • Yes i used actual ip address but that does not work – Ali Raza Jan 16 '18 at 14:44

You have not properly escaped the " and they don't match up. What you are seeing is your shell waiting for additional input because the second closing " is missing.

Not that on the site where you probably got your instructions it looks different:

 kali >hydra -L <wordlist> -P<password list> http-post-form "/dvwa/login.php:username=^USER^&password=^PASS^&Login=Login:Login failed"
