When every attack type fails, when you don’t find any exploits, bugs, vulnerabilities, etc., password cracking comes into play. Meaning that password cracking is the last phase when you want to attack, as this doesn’t depend on any bugs, vulnerabilities, or exploits to be present in the target system, web, accounts, etc. Once you try password cracking attacks, your chances of success are 99%, depending on the target. This course brings to you the more sophisticated attacks using password cracking methods in the wild. You will be using several techniques and methods from basic to advanced attacks. This course covers almost every attack type of password cracking that you will not find anywhere else, making it unique to password cracking.
