Why does Hydra 8.1 not stop when it finds a password?
I am using the
-P option with a file that has over 5 Million passwords in it and the correct SSH password is located at approx. line 2100, but Hydra v 8.1 goes past that password and keeps going, and it looks like it is trying to process the entire file.
I have tried both, the
-F and the
-f option, which per the documentation, indicate that Hydra should stop when it finds a match.
Here is the command I am using:
hydra -f -V -t 10 -l admin -P ../../all ubuntu14vm ssh
If I actually use the following command with
-p option instead, the command finds the password right away.
hydra -f -V -t 10 -l admin -p admin ubuntu14vm ssh
Only when I use the
-P command with a file that contains the password, it seems that Hydra tries that password and keeps going and attempts to process the entire file.
