This is to announce the availability an extensive wordlists collection that I've been working on for quite some time.
I've processed many hundreds of public domain wordlist files from multiple sources and in a variety of file formats. Most files were rejected for being duplicates or for poor quality (e.g., a mix of languages in a supposedly language-specific wordlist), but a few hundred remained and went into the combined wordlists that you will find in the collection.
The wordlists are intended primarily for use with password crackers such as John the Ripper and with password recovery utilities.
The URL for the wordlists collection is:
There you will be able to order the full collection on CD (for $28.85 including US postage) or download a reduced version.
Included in the collection are wordlists for 20+ human languages and lists of common passwords. The included languages are: Afrikaans, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, and Yiddish. There's also a list of the common passwords and unique words for all the languages combined in one file (over 40 MB for almost 4 million entries).
Included only on the CD and not available in the downloadable version of the collection is a huge list of all the common passwords and words from all the languages with word mangling rules applied (to form other likely passwords, such as by adding capitalization or digits to words) and any duplicates purged. This wordlist is provided as a single uncompressed text file usable directly off the CD. Its size is almost 500 MB and it has over 40 million entries.
For all wordlists, the entries are sorted either alphabetically or for more common to less common passwords/words/languages with alphabetical order within each section (for about equally common passwords or words, or for individual languages). There're no duplicates.
Five good reasons to purchase the CD:
- You get more content: the huge mangled wordlist is only available on the CD.
- Immediate access to all of the wordlists: they're uncompressed and usable right off the CD.
- You save time, bandwidth, and hard drive space.
- You can sleep well knowing that you've done your part to support the work on this collection.
- As a bonus, the CD has a complete mirror of ftp.openwall.com, including John the Ripper password cracker; this makes for a total of over 600 MB of content.
