didn't see that  Grin
Found my way around this issue as i had a backup copy of my wallet files.

SO my message to the newbs is: Make a copy of your wallet that you keep safe offline and one that is protected by a simple password. It works if you use multibit anyway :-) Check out their section on the forum, my case was explained there.

Would anyone please be able to help me get this script working with litecoin?

I mined some litecoins back in April and put a password on my wallet which I then forgot.

When I tried to use the script on my litecoin wallet it didn't work... It worked fine with my bitcoin wallet.

I tried messing around with the config file (adding allowed IP's), and changing ports and things in the actual powershell script.

Main problem seems to be connecting to the litecoin deamon. The Daemon also doesn't seem to run as smoothly as the bitcoin one.

Nothing seems to be working and I'm at a loss with what to do. I hope its not because I updated my litecoin client- I hadn't run it since april and when I fired it up again it said it wanted an update.

This is the error I get in powershell:

Code:
Exception             : System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: The connection was closed unexpe
                        ctedly.

Before I fiddled around with things I also got this error

I don't understand what these errors are telling me. I have google extensively.

Can anyone give me any hints or point me in the right direction?

I will love you forever if you can.

The main problem is that i am noob in using script and i can't understand script language so if you can tell me step by step process i can do it or if you have video tutorial then that's makes me happy !

The specifics change if you're on Windows, Mac or Linux, but in general:

Install Ruby 1.9 or newer (Ubuntu: "apt-get install ruby1.9.1"; Windows: http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/)
Choose one of the scripts from this thread depending on which one matches what you know about your password
Paste the script into a new file called brute.rb
Edit the file to fill in the passphrase as best as you can remember, an RPC password, and any other settings at the top of the script
Start bitcoind (the daemon, not the GUI): Linux: ./bitcoind -rpcpassword=some-password ; Windows: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitcoin\daemon\bitcoind" -rpcpassword=some-password
Run the script:  ruby brute.rb
Then wait.

Try it, see how far you get, and post any questions if you get stuck.

Revalin suggested 15%, BTChap offers 5% - not a good start Cheesy

My help is free.  Fewer lost wallet disasters is good for Bitcoin, and I'm happy to help.  Donations of any size or just a thank-you are always appreciated and certainly motivate me to stick around.  Smiley


could you write down a quick guide of the soft i need to install and the procedure to get going at cracking this?

I posted some general instructions here:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=85495.msg3746636#msg3746636 .  Try it, and if you get stuck we can help.


I am sorry - prompt and where a script? ?

Sorry, I don't understand your question.  Can you rephrase it?


Would anyone please be able to help me get this script working with litecoin?

I can't help with PowerShell, but several people have reported success using my scripts (the Ruby ones) with Litecoin.  The newer RPC scripts should work perfectly; the older ones running './bitcoind' in the test() function just need to be edited to say './litecoind', but I recommend the RPC method because it's much faster on Windows.

That's fantastic. Thank you very much for your help!

Is this the only one running  using RPC?

If so I'm not sure how to modify it to run the password cracking method I require.

Basically I need something that will test a combination of words I supply

I know my password is a mix of two of my other passwords. Possiblly with a space between them. I'm a bit worried though because I manually tried this last night and failed (400 attempts later)

It would be useful to test combinations of three (or more) as some of my passwords are combinations of smaller elements.

This bit looks promising?
Code:
lefts = [ "start", "Start", "Beginning" ] # The possible words for the left part
rights = ["end", "End", "ending"] # The possible words for the right part

Thank you eternally for any help you can render. I've installed ruby!

Here you go.  Just fill in the fragments in the words list and set a value for max_words.  max_words has a very large effect on how long it will take so try to keep it under 7.

Code:
#!/usr/bin/ruby
require "net/http"
require "json"

$rpc_pass = "some-password"
words = ['one', 'two', 'three', 'four', 'five']
max_words = 3

def test(passphrase)
  puts passphrase.inspect
  request = Net::HTTP::Post.new("/")
  request.basic_auth "", $rpc_pass
  request.body = { method:"walletpassphrase", params:[passphrase, 1] }.to_json
  response = Net::HTTP.new("localhost", 8332).request(request)
  if response.code == "401" ; puts "Incorrect RPC user/pass" ; exit 1 ; end
  ret = JSON.parse response.body
  if ret["error"].nil? ; puts "\nFound it! #{passphrase.inspect}" ; exit ; end
  return if ret["error"]["code"] == -14 # wrong passphrase
  raise "WTF? #{ret.inspect}"
end

(1..max_words).each do |n_words|
  words.permutation(n_words).each do |perm|
    [" ", ""].repeated_permutation(perm.count + 2).each do |j|
      test(["", *perm, ""].zip(j).join)
    end
  end
end

puts "No luck."

Brilliant! Thank you very much for that Revalin!

Wow,7 is pretty intense- your script must be fast!

Unfortunately I still get the same error I did with the power-shell script.

I had a bit of trouble getting it to accept my rpc-password initially but once that was solved I get:

Code:
C:/Ruby200-x64/lib/ruby/2.0.0/net/http.rb:878:in `initialize': No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. - connect(2) (Errno::ECONNREFUSED)

This is with litecoind

Litecoin uses port 9332 instead of 8332.  Change it in the script and try again.

Holy crap it worked!

Thank you so much!

You know in the end it was only ONE of my passwords (~100 of those), nothing else- found it in about ten seconds.

I must've simplified it or something

I've sent you a tip. I don't actually have much so it's not heaps but hopefully something.

I hope this helps others in the future, you're a miracle worker Revalin!

Mine worked too! I added an extra character. Now my question is, how do I find the private key? Like, now that I have the password to my Litecoin wallet, how do I import the private key? Using pywallet it says I've found the password, but I can't find the private key anywhere in the text document it saves.

I've got a Litecoin wallet that I've encrypted and I seemed to have mistyped in the password. I've got a list of passwords that I use and it could be any permutation of these passwords put together or on their own.  I've read through the thread and saw the Powershell script but I'm running Linux and I'm too sure about getting Powershell.  I'm willing to give a 10% (~$36 USD) tip out of the 9 Litecoins I've got stored in their (now worth $360 from the $13 they were worth only a few weeks ago  Wink ). From the dictionary I've created there are only ten words/phrases/number groupings that can be permuted into the passwords I often use.

Use the ruby script (with your words). you need ruby1.9.1 (eg ubuntu precise).

Which script is this? The one by Revalin is for mistyping a known password. Was there one I passed over accidentally thinking it was something else?

Edit: Wow, it's 7 posts up xD. I'll update later if it gets it Cheesy. And I'll donate to you Rev.

Okay, so I've edited the script above to look like this:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/ruby
require "net/http"
require "json"

$rpc_pass = "some-password"
words = ['pass1', 'pass2', 'pass3', 'pass4', 'pass5', 'pass6', 'pass7']
max_words = 7

def test(passphrase)
  puts passphrase.inspect
  request = Net::HTTP::Post.new("/")
  request.basic_auth "", $rpc_pass
  request.body = { method:"walletpassphrase", params:['11'+passphrase+'1111111', 1] }.to_json
  response = Net::HTTP.new("localhost", 9332).request(request)
  if response.code == "401" ; puts "Incorrect RPC user/pass" ; exit 1 ; end
  ret = JSON.parse response.body
  if ret["error"].nil? ; puts "\nFound it! #{passphrase.inspect}" ; exit ; end
  return if ret["error"]["code"] == -14 # wrong passphrase
  raise "WTF? #{ret.inspect}"
end

(1..max_words).each do |n_words|
  words.permutation(n_words).each do |perm|
    [""].repeated_permutation(perm.count + 2).each do |j|
      test(["", *perm, ""].zip(j).join)
    end
  end
end

puts "No luck."

The start and end of the passphrase are placeholder to what they really would be although they are the same length. There are also 7 different possibilities of passwords but of course, the ones seen above are placeholders. For anyone needing a bruteforcer for similar to my predicament, this is what I'm currently using. Thanks Revalin for being just an awesome person. Once I get into the wallet, I'm definitely throwing some LTC your way.  

  Edit: Looks like it found it while I was typing this message! Thanks again for all the help!  The donation will eventually happen xD . So much craziness going on in BTC-E

Hi, I was just wondering does anyone know of a work around for the Protoshares wallet?

There doesn't seem to be a protosharesd.exe in my program files like there are with the other coins, just the main folder with protoshares-qt and the folder in the %appdata% containing the wallet.dat

I have the password written down so not sure how I have managed to mess it up, any help much appreciated thanks

Try this:  protoshares-qt -server -rpcpassword=some-password -rpcport=8332

If it's similar to Bitcoin, that should start it with both the GUI and the RPC interface.

Is something that I'm doing wrong?


I just put some words, numbers and "play".

Play 3 different, with more or few words.
It's took a day, and two just closed and shows nothing.

When It find something, what happen? write some TXT with the password?
How I have sure if is connected with my BTCQT???

I'm using Windows 8.1 , Nothing installed (like "ruby" thing)

I just forgot to write my pass, I thought that I wrote but..
And I do not have sure the word, I put ALL WORDS that used in my time life!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH! FELLAS!

Will this work with feathercoin wallets?
I know feathercoins are worth peanutes compared to bitcoin and litecoins
But i have 2100 in my wallet and it's all i have!
Of course if i can get them back again i can trade some of them for bitcoin, litecoin and donate

I have a good idea of my password, infact i cannot believe i have screwed up
Must of mistyped something, been trying for 5 hours straight entering combinations of my passwords

I am using windows 7, downloaded the ruby program but really don't have a clue

Any help will be rewarded!, thanks
