  1. Hi,
    I am a novice hashcat user and am having trouble setting proper masks in WPA2.
    I know that the password is 8 characters long and contains capital letters and numbers, e.g. 94HA6CUE
    The command I use is:


    hashcat.exe -m 2500 -a 3 -w 3 upc.hccapx --session testmoj --increment --increment-min 8 --increment-max 8 -o wynik3.txt -1 ?u?d ?1?1?1?1?1?1?1?1  --force

    The number of combinations is over ~ 2.8 trillion = approx. 10 years.

    I would like to reduce the number of combinations knowing that the password contains:

    1. min. 3 - 4 numbers (?d) [e.g. ok - 94HA6CUE-?d?d?u?u?d?u?u?u ; 94HA6CU6-?d?d?u?u?d?u?u?d / nok - A4HA6CUE-?u?d?u?u?d?u?u?u ;  94HA6C56-?d?d?u?u?d?u?d?d]
    2. min. 4 - 5 letters (?u) [e.g. ok - 94HA6CU6-?d?d?u?u?d?u?u?d ;  94HA6CUE-?d?d?u?u?d?u?u?u / nok - 94HA6C56-?d?d?u?u?d?u?d?d ; A4HA6CUE-?u?d?u?u?d?u?u?u]
    3. not more than 3 same numbers (?d) and letters (?u) [e.g. ok - 995A9CUE-?d?d?d?u?d?u?u?u ; 995A9CAA-?d?d?d?u?d?u?u?u / nok - 999A9CUE-?d?d?d?u?d?u?u?u ; 99AA9CAA-?d?d?u?u?d?u?u?u]
    4. not more than 3 numbers next to each other (?d) [e.g. ok 946ABCUE-?d?d?d?u?u?u?u?u / nok - 9462ACUE-?d?d?d?d?u?u?u?u ; AHHA6956-?u?u?u?u?d?d?d?d]
    5. not more than 2 same numbers (?d) and letters (?u) next to each other [e.g. ok - 99HA6CUE-?d?d?u?u?d?u?u?u ; 99HA6CUU-?d?d?u?u?d?u?u?u / nok - 999A6CUE-?d?d?d?u?d?u?u?u ; 99HA6UUU-?d?d?u?u?d?u?u?u]

    For the above, I use the command:


    mp64.exe -q 4 -r 5 -1 ?u?d ?1?1?1?1?1?1?1?1 | hashcat.exe -m 2500 -a 3 -w 3 upc.hccapx --session testmoj --increment --increment-min 8 --increment-max 8 -o wyniki3.txt -1 ?u?d ?1?1?1?1?1?1?1?1 --force




    You have enabled --force to bypass dangerous warnings and errors!
    This can hide serious problems and should only be done when debugging.
    Do not report hashcat issues encountered when using --force.

    -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------

    When I want to check the status [s], nothing happens, and after exiting Ctrl + C something like this appears:


    [s]tatus [p]ause [b]ypass [c]heckpoint [q]uit => ^C^C
    DNS server not authoritative for zone.

    The question is:

    1. What will the correct mask command look like with my rules? Can someone write it to me and explain it?
    2. What am I doing wrong and why are my commands not working?

    I read the hashcat wiki tutorial, but I still can't quite understand everything because my English is poor...

    I am asking for help because I have been working on it for the second week and I do not have the strength to do it...

    Thank you
