THC Hydra v6.0 Released (Celebrating 10 yrs)

THCHydra – the best parallized login hacker: for Samba, FTP, POP3, IMAP, Telnet, HTTP Auth, LDAP, NNTP, MySQL, VNC, ICQ, Socks5, PCNFS, Cisco and more. Includes SSL support and is part of Nessus.

News and Changelog

Hydra is now over 10 years old! Yeah!
Good news: hydra is now co-maintained by co-maintained by David Maciejak @ gmail (dot) com,  thanks a lot!
Hydra is made available under GPLv3 with a special OpenSSL license expansion. No more windows .exe cygwin port. Too many clueless people hassled me why hydra.exe does not work for them when they double-click on it … duh Because v6 contains a lot of new code for IPv6, 5.9.x is kept and maintained further until v6 is stable. It was tested to work on Linux, Windows/Cygwin, Solaris 11, FreeBSD 8.1 and OSX.

CHANGELOG for 6.0 (development and new features)

  • Added GPL exception clause to license to allow linking to OpenSSL – debian people need this
  • IPv6 support finally added. Note: sip and socks5 modules do not support IPv6 yet
  • Bugfix for SIP module, thanks to yori(at)counterhackchallenges(dot)com
  • Compile fixes for systems without OpenSSL or old OpenSSL installations
  • Eliminated compile time warnings
  • xhydra updates to support the new features (david@)
  • Added CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5 auth mechanism to the smtp-auth module (david@)
  • Added LOGIN, PLAIN, CRAM-(MD5,SHA1,SHA256) and DIGEST-MD5 auth mechanisms to the imap and pop3 modules (david@)
  • Added APOP auth to POP3 module (david@)
  • Added NTLM and DIGEST-MD5 to http-auth module and DIGEST-MD5 to http-proxy module (david@)
  • Fixed VNC module for None and VLC auth (david@)
  • Fixes for LDAP module (david@)
  • Bugfix Telnet module linemode option negotiation using win7 (david@)
