Hash Buster - 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
  • Multi-threading

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 make install

After the installation, you will be able to access it with buster command.

Cracking a single hash

You don't need to specify the hash type. Hash Buster will identify and crack it under 3 seconds.

Usage: 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.

Usage: 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

{"[email protected]":"d033e22ae348aeb5660fc2140aec35850c4da997"}

Usage: 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
