I've updated Kali 2.0 to newest version - it is installed using VMWare.
Now, every time I use hydra to brute-force SSH, I get the following error:
[ERROR] target ssh://192.168.16.128:22/ does not support password authentication.
The corresponding command is as follows:
hydra -l anne -P /usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt 192.168.16.128 -t 32 ssh
I can easily log into the SSH server (tried a couple of servers) using ssh (
ssh email@example.com) and entering the password.
I really have no idea what could be wrong? Every tutorial I read on the Internet seems to work flawlessly without the issues I'm experiencing...
The complete session can be seen below:
