rsmangler Usage Example

Use the original wordlist (cat words.txt |) and mangle words with a minimum length of 6 (-m 6) and maximum length of 8 (-x 8), using stdin as input (–file -) and redirecting the results to a new wordlist (> mangled.txt):

root@kali:~# cat words.txt | rsmangler -m 6 -x 8 --file - > mangled.txt
root@kali:~# wc -l mangled.txt
367 mangled.txt
root@kali:~# wc -l words.txt
3 words.txt

Packages and Binaries:


RSMangler will take a wordlist and perform various manipulations on it similar to those done by John the Ripper the main difference being that it will first take the input words and generate all permutations and the acronym of the words (in order they appear in the file) before it applies the rest of the mangles.
