Password hacking

Postby Oversurge » Fri May 12, 2017 2:20 pm

I am doing the password security project, I was recording how long a 6 digit password would take in the Crack2.py program,
my 6 digit password has been running for 18 hours straight, but still hasn't come up with a result. Should I wait, or kill the program?

Hi Oversurge - I know this is an old threat, and I'm sorry you never got an answer. Did the program ever finish running or did you have to cancel it?
