Tool - Wordpress Bruteforcer (WP_BruteForcer.exe)

Wordpress Brute Force Tool

Hoho, the chritmas is around the corner and here is my christmas gift that would like to share with others. This is a brute forcing tool that targets the Wordpress web application.

Here is the demo on how to use the tool to break Wordpress password:

Figure 1: WP_BruteForcer Usage

Figure 2: Brute force the wordpress application

Figure 3: Password cracking

Figure 4: Target Website (Dummy one ;))

Figure 5: Ready to crack the website

Figure 6: Owned!!!


It would be a good idea to run the tool in Windows platform although wine environment can be used also but the tool is not stable for some reason (I didn't investigate further in this case ;))

Doesn't work for me. No matter what I type, it keeps on showing the help text.
I renamed it to wp.exe . The command that im typing is:

wp /wp_login.php admin 60 0 12

If 60 is the timeout, 12 is the starting pass chars, what is the 0 in the middle for??
Doesn't work!! Where am I wrong??

Artist said...

Does it work only for 4 characters????

The "0" indicates starting characters to start bruteforcing, for example 4, the brute force will start on aaaa.

Please note that starting Wordpress 3.0, the default administrator username is no longer neccessary to be "admin". So it makes the brute forceing harder as you need to determine what is the username first.

btw, how do i determine timeout?

for example, you put 60, where this number come from?


x9090 said...

The 'timeout' value is based on how long you want to delay for every character while bruteforcing.

Btw, this bruteforce tool might no longer work on the latest Wordpress version.
