RSMangler: Take a wordlist and mangle it

Version 1.4

RSMangler will take a wordlist and perform various manipulations on it similar to those done by John the Ripper with a few extras. The main new feature is permutations mode which takes each word in the list and combines it with the others to produce all possible permutations (not combinations, order matters). For example the words freds, fresh, fish will produce the following list:

freds
fresh
fish
fredsfresh
fredsfish
freshfreds
freshfish
fishfreds
fishfresh
fredsfreshfish
fredsfishfresh
freshfredsfish
freshfishfreds
fishfredsfresh
fishfreshfreds

It also creates an acronym from the words in order, for example the terms

proactive
security
management

would give the acronym "psm". This acronym is then added to the list of terms used in the rest of the mangling.

Each of these new words is then subject to the other mangles, because of this I strongly recommend with permutations mode enabled (default) you use a very small wordlist, 3 start words create a final list containing 5345 words and 5 start words creates a list containing 108557. As a test we tried it with a few hundred words and gave up when the process memory usage hit 3G.

If you try to use a file with more than 5 words you will get a warning and the option to abort.

Other mangles include adding the numbers 1 to 123 to the start and end, 01 to 09 to the start and end, various case manipulations, leet speak, word reversal, ed and ing on the end and doubling words up.

New mangles in 1.1 are adding all years between 1990 and this year to the start and end and adding sys, admin, pw and pwd to the start and end.

The initial wordlist can either be specified as a file or can be piped in through STDIN.

Installation

Just make the script executable, it doesn't rely on any gems or anything external.

Note, all mangle options are ON by default, these parameters turn them OFF
