In this recipe we will crack SSH passwords with a know username:
- Open a terminal window in Kali by clicking the icon.
- Now let's run hydra using our known username and wordlist. You will notice that this does take some time but ultimately you will get the passwords:
hydra -t 4 -l kiddoe -P /usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt ssh://192.168.56.104
Hydra output screen
The -t 4 slows the amount of processes down so it does not overwhelm or trigger protections against some SSL instances.
