Hi all, Perhaps someone here has tried this and is able to advise? Say my password was a combination of lowercase letters of 8 digits. Using OCLHashCat, would it be faster to Brute Force using ... oclhashcat --hash-type [TYPE] file.hccat ?l?l?l?l?l?l?l?l ... or, would it be faster to use a wordlist, with all of the combinations of 8 lowercase letters in it ... oclhashcat --hash-type [TYPE] file.hccat wordlist.dic ... ? This is not taking in to account the time spent to generate the wordlist, or the size. Let's say that's already covered. *edit* I assume the wordlist would be slightly faster, based on there being one less step per password for the GPU to have to compute, but I guess what I'm trying to get at is whether it's a noticeable difference? Are we talking shaving only minutes or hours off, or could this potentially save days? Thank you.
