What is THC-HYDRA?



THC-HYDRA is a very fast network logon cracker which support many different services. This tool is a proof of concept code, to give researchers and security consultants the possibility to show how easy it would be to gain unauthorized access from remote to a system. It was tested to compile cleanly on Linux, Windows/Cygwin, Solaris, FreeBSD and OSX.

  • New main engine for hydra: better performance, flexibility and stability
  • New option -u – loop around users, not passwords
  • Option -e now also works with -x and -C
  • Added RDP module, domain can be passed as argument
  • Added other_domain option to smb module to test trusted domains
  • Small enhancement for http and http-proxy module for standard ignoring servers

  • Fixed Firebird module deprecated API call
  • Fixed for dpl4hydra to work on old sed implementations (OS/X …)
  • Fixed makefile to install dpl4hydra (thx @sitecrea)
  • Fixed local buffer overflow in debug output function (required -d to be used)
