medusa [-h host|-H file] [-u username|-U file] [-p password|-P file] [-C file] -M module [OPTIONS]
Medusa is intended to be a speedy, massively parallel, modular, login brute-forcer. The goal is to support as many services which allow remote authentication as possible. The author considers following items to some of the key features of this application:
*Thread-based parallel testing. Brute-force testing can be performed against multiple hosts, users or passwords concurrently.
*Flexible user input. Target information (host/user/password) can be specified in a variety of ways. For example, each item can be either a single entry or a file containing multiple entries. Additionally, a combination file format allows the user to refine their target listing.
*Modular design. Each service module exists as an independent .mod file. This means that no modifications are necessary to the core application in order to extend the supported list of services for brute-forcing.
The following combinations are possible in the combo file: 1.) foo:bar:fud 2.) foo:bar: 3.) foo:: 4.) :bar:fud 5.) :bar: 6.) ::fud 7.) foo::fud
Medusa also supports using PwDump files as a combo file. The format of these files should be user:id:lm:ntlm:::. We look for ':::' at the end of the first line to determine if the file contains PwDump output.
The following is the breakdown of the verbose levels: 0) EXIT APPLICATION 1) MESSAGE WITHOUT TAG 2) LOG MESSAGE WITHOUT TAG 3) IMPORTANT MESSAGE 4) ACCOUNT FOUND 5) ACCOUNT CHECK 6) GENERAL MESSAGE
The following is the breakdown of the error levels: 0) FATAL 1) ALERT 2) CRITICAL 3) ERROR 4) WARNING 5) NOTICE 6) INFO 7) DEBUG 8) DEBUG - AUDIT 9) DEBUG - SERVER 10) DEBUG - MODULE
