Website Password hacking using WireShark

Step 5: Cracking MD5 hashed password

I can easily crack this simple password using hashcat or similar softwares.

root@kali:~# hashcat -m 0 -a 0 /root/wireshark-hash.lf /root/rockyou.txt
root@kali:~# cudahashcat -m 0 -a 0 /root/wireshark-hash.lf /root/rockyou.txt
root@kali:~# cudahashcat32 -m 0 -a 0 /root/wireshark-hash.lf /root/rockyou.txt
root@kali:~# cudahashcat64 -m 0 -a 0 /root/wireshark-hash.lf /root/rockyou.txt

Because this was a simple password that existed in my password list, hashcat cracked it very easily.

Out final outcome looks like this:

  1. username: sampleuser
  2. password: e4b7c855be6e3d4307b8d6ba4cd4ab91:simplepassword


Well, to be honest it’s not possible for every website owner to implement SSL to secure password, some SSL’s cost you upto 1500$ per URL (well, you can get 10$ ones too but I personally never used those so I can’t really comment). But the least website owners (public ones where anyone can register) should do is to implement hashing during login-procedures. In that way, at least the password is hashed and that adds one more hurdle for someone from hacking website password easily. Actually it’s a big one as SSL encryption (theoretically) can take 100+years even with the best SuperComputer of today.

  1. hi :)
    As always many thanks for the interesting material in the mythical

    PS I did some tests ” refresher ” on some old and famous forum at http :
    & After the filter http.request.method == " POST "
    the credentials are in ” CLEAR ” in Base-Line text-data(wireshark)
    ex: http://postimg.org/image/loiekr3jz/full/

    thx-again :-)

  2. is that only capture your own network packet, right?
    so, when we want to capture other computer packet, we must do arp poisoning, please correct me…

    • Hi Akyra,
      Correct. Or if you have access to the Gateway device(for example a router/proxy), you can just do it in there and all the HTTP password for the whole network will come up in Plaintext. Truly scary assuming that someone used the same password in a secured website and in a non-secured website. It’s very old hack but works till date.
      My intention is to show how easily it can be done and people should be aware of it. Cheers,

      • thanks blackmore ops

  3. You can also look for “data-text-lines” in the wireshark filter.
    It gives all the packets were tis line is present.

  4. Please note that sensitive data may be protected on the client-side when playing with plain-text connections e.g. with some JavaScript help. see http://tech.pro/tutorial/631/secure-authentication-without-ssl-using-javascript

  9. hello friends,

    My name is gabi and i really need some help with my newly installed Kali 2.0 Sana.

    It actually worked for some couple of weeks and later started acting weird. The issue is this ;

    I cannot browse the internet with either iceweasel or Firefox
    I cannot use the terminal to ping any public internet address, even google dns server
    I can use the TOR browser only to access the internet (WEIRD).

    This is driving me crazy, just when i am preparing for my CEHv8 and other security certifications.

    Please guys, the experts, help me out here. I will really appreciate any help.



    • look in the /etc folder for another folder named “Networkmanagement” , in this folder must be a config file, open it with a text editor and you will find the option somethink like “network” oder “networkcard managed” = false, just replace the “false” with “true” and save the config file, then you will be noticed that you are connected to the internet.
