    • – fixed an issue with large input files and long entries
  • hydra library:
    • – SSL connections are now fixed to SSLv3 as some SSL servers fail otherwise, report if this gives you problems
    • – removed support for old OPENSSL libraries
  • HTTP Form module:
    • – login and password values are now encoded if special characters are present
    • – ^USER^ and ^PASS^ are now also supported in H= header values

    We use THC hydra all the time! The hackers choice always makes a quality product. Typically we’ll get a list of valid users and passwords through SQLI or phishing and then try that against an FTP or public SSH server.
