WordPress Password Cracker

Audit WordPress user passwords against a dictionary file.

How do I use the plugin?

  1. The password dictionary is stored in 'dictionary.txt' in the plugin's home directory. A small sample dictionary of common passwords is included. The check is run in the background: due to the secure hashing algorithm large dictionaries may take a long time to check. Use the sample dictionary to gauge the performance of a more thorough check.
  2. The Password Cracker is found in the Tools Menu. Press the 'Run Cracker' button and the checks will be launched in the background. Use the refresh link to reload the page. The results will be displayed once the check has completed.
