What’s good y’all?
In this episode we’ll take a look at brute-forcing a VeraCrypt container using Hashcat.
For starters I want to say that I’m a huge VeraCrypt fan and use it all the time, for a long time. Long enough to remember when it was, originally, called TrueCrypt before the project was abandoned.
I caught myself thinking: how long would it actually take to brute-force specific password masks? That’s when I decided to put it to the test using Hashcat and an operating system equipped with a graphics card.
Let’s find out! 🙂
