I have forgotten my password but I know the words used in the password. I remember the password was something like MyPassport@1.82TB.

Is there any software that can produce all combinations like replacing "M" with "m" or "1" with "!", something like that?

  • John the Ripper can help you with that...

  • A basic script can create the list for you, too.

This is called a rule based attack. Password cracking tools such as Hashcat and John the Ripper can be used to crack passwords in this manner.


You can try using mentalist, it generates custom word lists based on your parameters, it also has a GUI to make things easier as well. You can proceed to crack the password with the custom generated word list using password crackers like Hashcat and John The Ripper like other users have mentioned above.
