Word List / Dictionaries built into Kali

By | April 17, 2015


The word list that are built into Kali are located in the /usr/share/wordlists directory. They are compressed with Gzip.
 
A popular wordlist in Kali is called “rockyou” here is how to extract it for use.
 
Open a terminal window.
 
Change to the directory rockyou is located in.
 
cd /usr/share/wordlists
 
Use the” ls” command to see the rockyou file.
 
ls
 
Use the gunzip command to extract the file.
 
gunzip rockyou.txt.gz
 
Use the” ls” command again and the file should be extracted.

      Hey fucktard, the point of this is to show you where the word lists are so you can use them to test for password vulnerabilities. Ever heard of ethical hacking?

      Ferdinand, there is also something called appropriate commenting. I believe you made an assumption. But I only assume this.

      Ferdinand you make no sense. I hacking is funny you should try the other side of the coin. Some love going to the church, praising god, drinking, smoking weed, dancing and having sex for fun, we love hacking wireless

    hi guys really frustrated i cant seem to download the rockyou.txt in kali, i run the command ‘cd /usr/share/wordlists’ followed by ‘ls’ then ‘gunzip rockyou.txt.gz’ then ‘ls’ but all it says is ‘gzip rockyou.txt.gz: No such file or directory’ need command to type into kali 2.0 that will find rockyou.txt and uzip to a location i can access on kali. much help appreciated. also the file system tab isnt there so i cant do that option to find rockyou.txt, i dont no if this is because i had to kill networkmanager to run airmon-ng in monitor mode. but basically really need way to get rockyou.txt ive captured wpa handshakes just really need wordlists in kali badly!!!!!! Please help much appreciated

      nothing to do with killing network mgr (or kill any processes) if the file exists locate command will find it, in terminal type: locate rockyou and it should show you the location of the rockyou file

      you can also download from here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/7d7nz2kku7urzor/rockyou.txt
      and download backtrack wordlist from here http://www.mediafire.com/download/5tvpocv5gijo0dc/darkc0de.lst
      no need to unzip any of these two if you download them from above as they are not archived

      run “locate rockyou.txt” command and it will show you the path to that passwd file

    Hi
    is there anyway I could use all my wordlists or wtv instead of just one to crack a wifi password like using aircrack-ng command ?
    aircrack-ng –a2 –b 00:14:BF:E0:E8:D5 –w /root/wpa.txt /root/Desktop/*.cap

    for example I used Rockyou to crack the pass but it couldn’t do it ! do I have to manually type the path of each wordlist or can I use a command to try to crack the password by using all available wordlists in my system ?

      Hi
      I have seen in other lists you can merge files with the cat command. Load all files to the same directory then open a terminal in the location. run “cat *.txt >> newfile.txt”. this will merge all of your files to a new “newfile.txt”

      Remember to be Responsible 🙂

    You can just go to the file system and the location of the rockyou word list and extract it there
