==What is Brutus?==
Brutus is a well known password brute forcing program.
==What can I do with it?==
With Brutus, you can brute force passwords for HTTP, FTP, POP3, Telnet, SMB (Netbios), Netbus, and they also have a
"Custom" option so you can specify your own settings.
==Where can I download Brutus?==
You can find Brutus at it's webpage www.hoobie.net/brutus
You can also find it at GluTuk's site www.spartandownloads.2ys.com
==Where can I find a good password list to use with Brutus?==
Pretty much, the only password list you will ever need
and has 4.9 million passwords. Here are a link where you can download it.
Chapter Two: Let's Get Cracking.
Note: You can use a proxy for each cracking method.
This is the option you would use if you want to crack into a website that has a field for a username and a pass, like
I will use this site for the rest ov this section as well.
First thing you wanna do is open Brutus, and select http form. Then click the modify sequence button. Once there we put
the above link into the Target form field, then click Learn Form Settings
From here, you click the field name that is for the username, in this case it is userid, once you have selected it,
click the username button that is shown above the cookie information. That tells brutus that that field is for the username.
Then you select the password field and click the password button, then click accept. Next, in the HTML Response field you
need to fill that in with the response you get when you try to enter a password into your site. In this case the response is
"You have entered a wrong Password or username." For this target we will put that into the Primary response field Once this
is done, we click ok, add the IP into the Target Field and start our crack.
For cracking an FTP server, the default settings should remain how they are, I usually make sure that the "Try to stay
connected for unlimited attempts" box is ticked. That’s up to you, once you have selected your options, enter the IP and
being the crack.
This is pretty much the same as FTP cracking as far as, the default settings should work for you. Once again, I like to
use the "Try to stay connected for unlimited attempts" option.
Seems as if I'm repeating myself, but once again, the default settings should werk for you.
If you happen to find yourself a target that has the NetBIOS port open (139) and has sharing enabled, but needs a
password, this is what you would use. Once again, default settings should work.
Sub7 is a popular Trojan that sometimes, you might find a server that needs a password to connect.
This option is used for, cracking a password protected Sub7 server.
This is what you would use to set up a crack for anything else that you could think ov.You need to find out what you need
to put in each field once you click "Define sequence" Those options will vary from target to target.
