Create a targeted wordlist – to use with password audits

Posted date:

There are lots of ways to create a wordlist, you can just generate them, find pre-built ones online, etc.  In this case I want to create a wordlist that contains components specific to the organization I am auditing.

cupp is good if you know details about individuals

  • cupp -i

cewl is good to scrape a website for words

  • cewl -v -w cewl-wordlist-customer-site.txt
    • there are other options, like following links more than 2 deep (-d option) or target words larger than 8 characters with the (-m 8 option)  or if you feel crazy, the -o option will spider to other sites
