Hi, been trying to learn how to do this myself, but can't figure it out.

Im looking at running a brute force password hack on a webmail account.

Any ideas on what/how to do?

Im running Mac OSX

Peace

One post. Let's start off with what did you research? Second, brute forcing any account now is worthless due to they will lock the webmail account and probably ban your IP address for too many requests.

Brute forcing any web service nowadays would be virtually impossible. After 3 or 5 attempts of brute forcing the account, it would get locked out and the IP address of the computer brute forcing the service banned.

Now if you head over to Google and type "HTTP Bruce Force" you will get list of options to choose from. You might be able to download some tools.

Now if you are using your own web mail set up at home, you may disable the account lock out policy just to try out the tool and see how it works.

Secondly but not least, some Anti-Virus programs could detect it as being infected so caution is a must.

Good luck.

A better tactic would be to gain access to the computer/network of the person using the account (who I am assuming is yourself or someone who has authorised you to do so) and use SSLStrip to sniff out the password. Or use phishing.

I think Ethereal would be ideal in this scenario, since its a man in the middle of attack suite.
