I notice that some people on this comment page are just asking to access an email account or a game account. keep in mind that THC Hydra brute forces using a dictionary attack, meaning that a file with a bank of common passphrases is run through by the program, to crack an authentication service. You can't just expect it to plug into an auth. service and instantly crack the password, unless you give it limitations (I'm assuming, because I use aircrack-ng with crunch), so it knows where to look. I recommend that you read the README file included. If you don't understand what it says, then... I don't know, man.
I have been using this for my internal ethical hacking tasks to brute force telnet access to Cisco network devices (routers, switches etc) with great success. It is very fast and stable tool. Have been using it on Kali Linux lately.
I have a problem, I was instaling hydra using a guide from google, i did everything but when i enter the place in cmd where I puted hydra files it says it cant finde path but i did everything.... my mail is firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone can help me install hydra, to explain me from skratch how to do it
I'm amazed of the many protocols supported, and its fast! a windows gui would be great though
