abrute - Multi-threaded AES Brute Force File Decryption
Abrute is a multi-threaded brute force file decryption tool. Many
features have been added to this including a resume feature, a
JSON endpoint, computer clustor workload splitting, character
adjacency limitting, and custom CLI reporters. Abrute will decrypt
.zip extension files on any Linux compatible system.
abrute needs the nightly build of Rust for the TryFrom trait.
To use the install script you need to have the following commands available on your
curl wget unzip sudo cc and possibly other build essentials for C.
For Ubuntu and Docker images of Ubuntu you can install these prerequisites with:
apt-get update && apt-get install curl wget unzip sudo build-essential
NOTE: if you are not root you may need to precede
install.sh script will check for Rust and aescrypt and proceed to install them
if they are missing (it will ask you if you want to install Rust).
First download the installation script locally.
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/danielpclark/abrute/master/install.sh > install.sh
Then verify that the contents of the installation script is safe to use (a no brainer). Then run
This install script will use sudo to copy the binary directly to
/usr/bin and make the
abrute available to you everywhere.
First you need to have aescrypt installed.
wget https://www.aescrypt.com/download/v3/linux/aescrypt-3.13.tgz tar -xzf aescrypt-3.13.tgz cd aescrypt-3.13/src make && sudo make install cd ../.. && rm -rf aescrypt-3.13
Next you need to have Rust installed.
curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh -s -- --channel=nightly
Then you can get and compile abrute.
git clone https://github.com/danielpclark/abrute.git cd abrute cargo +nightly build --release sudo cp target/release/abrute /usr/bin/
USAGE: abrute <RANGE> <CHARACTERS> [OPTIONS] -- <TARGET> <RANGE> Single digit or a range 4:6 for password length. <CHARACTERS> Characters to use in password attempt. Don't use quotes unless they may be in the password. Backslash may escape characters such as space. -a, --adjacent Set a limit for allowed adjacent characters. Zero will not allow any characters of the same kind to neighbor in the attempts. -s, --start Starting character sequence to begin with. -z, --zip Use `unzip` decryption instead of `aescrypt`. -c, --chunk Workload chunk size per core before status update. Defaults to 32. --cluster Takes an offset and cluster size such as 1:4 for the first system in a cluster of 4. Helps different systems split the workload without trying the same passwords. -r, --reporter Use `spinner`, or `benchmark` to use a different command line reporter. <TARGET> Target file to decrypt. The target must be preceeded by a double dash: -- target.aes -h, --help Prints help information. -v, --version Prints version information.
