Question about brute force

Post by takeudown »

Hey Everyone, Ok this is the deal. I go to a website and it has a place for employee login to check emails. Now I know the user name and my old password was rmi0518
But my husband has changed it, my question is can I use a brute force on this, I know most websites lock you out after so many wrong tries but this one does not, If I can use a brute force , Can someone recommend one to use, I am running windows xp.

Also If I am sending a keylogger to a email address that when they recieve email it gets pushed to their blackberry, If they check it from the blackberry it will not install the keylogger correct? I have the mail server and the ip address, I got that far so any help is appreciated

Hmm, brute forcing is similar to attempting to kill someone with a gun only missing 49 times and maybe hitting them on the 50th time, or running out of ammo. Either way, the cops are gonna show. Better not do it.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

If under normal circumstances I would never think of it , Even using a proxy there is a log file and the admin would be able to locate me by Ip.

But see the thing is, I own the business. I opened my own business about almost 2 months ago. As I am sure most of you know when you first open any business you do not start out making profit, My husband had his buddy put together our website, My husband has changed the login password to the email and made a huge argument about letting him deal with the computer related stuff. I only been married 6 months but this sends up a huge red flag. I cant go to the admin thats his buddy, but its al in my name so I do not beleive I can be arrested or any of that. Am I righton this? Thanks

By bruteforcing, you won't simply try usr:pwd , it can cause a mass of traffic and the ISP(Internet Service Provider) will surely log that IP adress and maybe contact you.

Brute-forcing is like killing a moskito with a bazooka

How does anyone know you actually own this business? Where is the actual computer located that runs the mail server? Or is it a hosted site?

Well, tell us if the web site is hosted on a computer you have physical access to, or if it is on some hosting company server.

My god i can't believe i'm saying this....

You're the woman in the relationship, don't let him control you like that, you both have equal rights over the business. Let him know that and go ahead and have the password changed via phone. Don't try brute forcing because attacking a computer that doesn't belong to you is highly illegal.

Why does it matter if he knows? If this is your account you have the right to change the PW. If you're married I'm assuming you live together. Why not just talk to your husband about this?

because for the moment it is best not to encounter social problems until she finds out what is going on.

if she talks to him about it there is a possibility that he is going to do some damage u never know.

what? is this Oprah?

Anytime someone becomes deceptive, it means they are doing something wrong.

If you are paying the bill for ipowerweb.net then you have the right to get an admin password for it. Your hubby can share admin rights also. Ipowerweb is a website host, look in the History folder or tab in the computer's web browser (like internet explorer) and see what websites he is visiting.

If anyone feels the threat of violence is there, they should leave. Get a restraining order or a divorce. I am tired of hearing about domestic violence repeat offenders. Your problems are beyond admin rights over a server, you got problems in your relationship - that should be discussed in the Off-topic Forum :-$
