I am trying to learn how to use hydra to crack login passwords.

Does anybody know a legal website I can crack and if so the information needed or the code needed to enter the form into hydra?


There are numerous options. VMs designed to be hacked (DVWA, metasploitable, etc.), hacking websites where attacks are permitted, or creating your own service.

But don't overlook the obvious: your own router. The login web page is simple, and you know the password. Give it a shot.

    It's also fun to password-protect something but randomize something about it, so you get a feeling for the difference between perfect secrecy and leaking metadata. – ǝɲǝɲbρɯͽ Apr 14 '15 at 4:18
