Why crack hashes when you can bust them?
- Automatic hash type identification
- Supports MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512
- Can extract & crack hashes from a file
- Can find hashes from a directory, recursively
Insallation & Usage
Note: Hash Buster isn’t compatible with python2, run it with python3 instead. Also, Hash-Buster uses some APIs for hash lookups, check the source code if you are paranoid.
Hash-Buster can be run directly from the python script but I highly suggest you to install it with
After the installation, you will be able to access it with
Cracking a single hash
You don’t need to specify the hash type. Hash Buster will identify and crack it under 3 seconds.
buster -s <hash>
Finding hashes from a directory
Yep, just specify a directory and Hash Buster will go through all the files and directories present in it, looking for hashes.
buster -d /root/Documents
Cracking hashes from a file
Hash Buster can find your hashes even if they are stored in a file like this
buster -f /root/hashes.txt
Specifiying number of threads
Multi-threading can incredibly minimize the overall speed when you have a lot of hashes to crack by making requests in parallel.
buster -f /root/hashes.txt -t 10
