Forgot Wallet Pass HALP!


#61

sorry, looks like you;re right, not bip32 - BIP38
here is a sample wallet I generated using liteaddress.org (it has no funds on it :wink:
Private key
6PfPbnC3LJGpCLT537UE6ipVqg9b9haubdSXwsgJQaeCHvKy4pBKD3Fb6j
Public key
LezVDR9dvJs6do1UPPbFHzTX6ByVh3xRxv
Password
test

If I suspected what the password was, (for example I thought it was Test rather than test) I’d want to try a bunch of variations (Test, TEST, Test1, Test1!, test)
This is what I did with my javascript, but it’s really slow, and the browser it runs in crashes if I run it in parallel.
I was hoping that I could leverage hashcat to run the litecoin.org bip38 mechanism multiple times to try to decrypt the key (brute force = slow I understand).

I was hoping that if hashcat has this ability, it would be faster than my javascript process.
