  • This command will automate the creation of ESSIDs and batch processing in pyrit. Give it a list of WPA/WPA2 access points you're targeting and it'll import those ESSIDs and pre-compute the potential password hashes for you, assuming you've got a list of passwords already imported using: pyrit -i dictionary import_passwords Once the command finishes, point pyrit to your packet capture containing a handshake with the attack_db module. Game over. Show Sample Output

    gopyrit () { if [ $# -lt 1 ]; then echo $0 '< list of ESSIDs >'; return -1; fi; for i in "$@"; do pyrit -e $i create_essid && pyrit batch; done; pyrit eval }

  • This command is for producing GNU sha256sum-compatible hashes on UNIX systems that don't have sha256sum but do have OpenSSL, such as stock IBM AIX. 1.- Saves a wrapper script for UNIX find that does the following: A.- Feeds a file to openssl on SHA256 hash calculation mode B.- Echoes the output followed by the filename 2.- Makes the file executable 3.- Runs find on a directory, only processing files, and running on each one the wrapper script that calculates SHA256 hashes Pending is figuring out how to verify a sha256sum file on a similar environment. Show Sample Output

    echo '#! /usr/bin/ksh\necho `cat $1 | openssl dgst -sha256` $1' > sslsha256; chmod +x sslsha256; find directory -type f -exec ./sslsha256 \{\} \;

  • Lists ONLY the files changed by the given HASH/HEAD/list of hashes, etc. The message, commit ID, author, etc. is not included

    git show --relative --pretty=format:'' --name-only HASH

  • Might be able to do it in less steps with xmlstarlet, although whether that would end up being shorter overall I don't know - xmlstarlet syntax confuses the heck out of me. Prompts for your password, or if you're a bit mental you can add your password into the command itself in the format "-u user:password". Show Sample Output

    curl -u <username> | xml2 | grep /boxeefeed/message/description | awk -F= '{print $2}'

  • wget --user=username --password="$password" Instead of hiding commands entirely from history, I prefer to use "read" to put the password into a variable, and then use that variable in the commands instead of the password. Without the "-e" and "-s" it should work in any bourne-type shell, but the -s is what makes sure the password doesn't get echoed to the screen at all. (-e makes editing work a bit better)

    read -e -s -p "Password: " password

  • These are my favourite switches on pwgen: -B Don't include ambiguous characters in the password -n Include at least one number in the password -y Include at least one special symbol in the password -c Include at least one capital letter in the password It just works! Add a number to set password length, add another to set how many password to output. Example: pwgen -Bnyc 12 20 this will output 20 password of 12 chars length. Show Sample Output

    pwgen -Bnyc
