Zydra is a file password recovery tool and Linux shadow file cracker. It uses the dictionary search or Brute force method for cracking passwords.
Cracking files password using two methods: 1. dictionary method 2. brute force method
In the brute force method, you can specify the min length and max length of the passwords.
In the brute force method, you can specify the type of characters that may be used in the password.
There is a percent progress bar showing how much of the process has been performed.
One of the most important features of Zydra is the multiprocessing feature that speeds up the program. For example if you have 8 CPU cores, Zydra will use all of them for processing at the same time.
