Analysis Files

The files reached through this directory will assist in password analysis and recovery.

Most files can only be accessed via torrent or MegaLink.
A few files are included in the repository, however.

All rules and masks were generated using the PACK project.


HashCat rulesets allow for automatic modification of wordlist items during use of the HashCat software. These modifications can include changes in capitalization, the addition of characters, manipulation of a whole string and more.

Use of a ruleset takes password as an input and generates outputs like PASSWORD, p455w0rd, dr0wssap, etc.

A mutation will be generated for every rule in a ruleset. Consider a ruleset with 5 entries and a wordlist with 20 lines. When combined, the functional size of the wordlist is increased from 20 to 100. Keep in mind that the smallest ruleset provided here is 26 entries long.

The use of rulesets increases the functional size of a wordlist, but may quickly result in far too many entries for practical use.

In order to limit this, I've divided the rules generated from Top29Million-probable-v2.txt into smaller, cumulative files. These rules are sorted by probability, with the most common rules at the top of the list.

At 2.2GB, the largest ruleset should be used with only the shortest wordlists.
Its use is not practical for any other purpose.


Masks are not included the repository and must be downloaded via torrent or MegaLink.

HashCat uses character descriptions to outline password composition. They are similar to regular expressions.

  • ?l represents any character abdcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
  • ?d represnts 0123456789

These are not the only characters available, merely an example. These are used repeatedly to create "Masks" that are used to describe combinations of characters.

  • ?l?l?l?d?d?d represents all combinations of lowercase letters and numbers from aaa000 through zzz999.

  • ?u?d?u?d?u?d represents all combinations of capital letters and numbers from A0A0A0 through Z9Z9Z9

  • ?u?l?l?l?l represents all 5-letter combinations with a capital first letter, from Aaaaa through Zzzzz

These masks are used to describe composition patterns in the list. Two files are included:

  • ProbWL-mask-probable-v2.mask contains all masks found in Top2Billion-probable-v2.txt, sorted by popularity
  • ProbWL-mask-probable-v2-counts.txt contains the same contents as the first file, but each entry is paired with the number of times a password matching that mask appeared in the wordlist.

Recommended Unarchivers:

  • Windows: 7Zip
  • Mac: Keka
  • Linux: Command Line, p7zip

Recommended Torrent Client:

  • Deluge gave me the best results in terms of connecting to the seedbox.
