I built the Brute Force Password Cracker as a fun program to test out passwords, and to test my knowledge of Python 3 and its libraries.
program stopped at 4 billion, 3870 million passwords, maybe it was because my PC went to sleep mode but damn that took more than an hour anyway. didn't know my password was THAT complicated lol
@kshah: That's awesome! Some passwords are definitely more complex and adding a simple character can severely change it. For example, the password "aa" takes 1,045 attempts. However, the password "aaa" takes 98,241 attempts. This is a ton more for just one character! I think the most complex password I've attempted was 123456 and I forgot if it even finished before I got tired of leaving the tab open :)
@microwither: Well, you should Optimize your script a little in my opinion: most people try to avoid Caps, Symbols and Numbers. You should test small Letters First, Then Caps-Lock, then Numbers and then Symbols, this will reduce your tries on most Passwords by several quadrillion tries. Nevertheless impressing script.
