i've lost my PTS & DTC wallet psw (The psw is the same at both) like bounty i offer 30% of my pts & 25% of my DTC!
i remember it but when i try to put it the wallet give a error
The psw was Ctrl+c & ctrl+v form a wikipedia page so i'm sure at 100% it is. but maybe i'm missing a space or something like that...thanks who will pm me!

You should check if that page has been edited.  Smiley

If that doesn't work you can try the standard double-typo script:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/ruby -w
require 'net/http'
require 'json'

passphrase = 'oops i forgot'
$rpc_pass = "some-password"

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

def scramble(passphrase)
  characters = " !\"\#$%&'()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>?@ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ[\\]^_`abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz{|}~"
  list = []

  # transpose adjacent chars
  (passphrase.length - 1).times do |i|
    testphrase = passphrase.dup
    testphrase[i] = passphrase[i+1]
    testphrase[i+1] = passphrase[i]
    list << testphrase
  end

  # delete one char
  passphrase.length.times do |i|
    testphrase = passphrase.dup
    testphrase = testphrase[0,i] + testphrase[(i+1)..-1]
    list << testphrase
  end

  # substitutute one char
  passphrase.length.times do |i|
    characters.chars.each do |c|
      testphrase = passphrase.dup
      testphrase[i] = c
      list << testphrase
    end
  end

  # insert one char
  (passphrase.length + 1).times do |i|
    characters.chars.each do |c|
      testphrase = passphrase.dup
      testphrase.insert(i, c)
      list << testphrase
    end
  end

  return list.uniq
end

list1 = scramble(passphrase)
list1.each { |i| test i }
list1.each { |i| scramble(i).each { |j| test j }}
puts "No luck."
exit 1

Protoshares uses a different RPC port so either change it in the script above or start protoshares with -rpcport=8332 in addition to -rpcpassword=some-password .

Give it a try, and we'll help you get it working if you get stuck.

Are you typing "ruby brute.rb"? That's what you need to type.

If this still doesn't work, give me a slightly fuller explanation of exactly what you're trying to do and I'll see if I can solve this for you. Smiley

Thanks again
Just done that and got this error no such file or directory
So i removed the "" from the save file and just saved as brute.rb
And now i get this error brute.rb:62in '<main>' : underfined method 'captures' for NilClass <NoMethodError>

Getting closer?

Cheers


how do i fix this error?

here is line 62:

   seed_base64 = wallet.match(/'seed': '([^']+)'/).captures.first

   seed_base64 = wallet.match(/'seed': '([^']+)'/).captures.first

That indicates the script couldn't find the seed in your Electrum wallet.  Try putting this just above that line:
Code:
puts wallet

That will print out the raw wallet (it's just a text file for Electrum).  Read through it and see if it has something like this:  'seed': 'a349iYLbPwas1O4mXdLDcg/N1RLK2Hb6oZdee7JLsf6J79EGZORmLY9+a5yBryFxKtPBl3WWUdFmNjEdEXo8dg=='

If it doesn't print anything it didn't load your wallet for some reason.  If it doesn't have a seed it might be a different wallet version.  If it does have a seed we'll have to find the bug in my script.

I don't have Electrum.  I have feathercoin.  I know the first 16 characters of the password, but the last 9-12 characters I am unsure of.   can u make it so it is case insensitive, and try a 1-2 digit number at the end, with a ~ or ~~ after or before, I forgot..?

I think you got the Electrum script by accident.  Try this one: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=85495.msg3969951#msg3969951

We will need to narrow the password down more.  Do you know approximately what the last 9-12 are, or are they completely unknown?

Is there any way this could be altered for multiple wordlists?

Eg. I am fairly sure I made the password from four wordlists.

For example, List A is shirt-themed (hawaiian, dress, long-sleeve, etc.)

List B is car-themed (ford, toyota, camry, etc.)

List C is country-themed (australia, thailand, colombia, etc.)

List D is guitar-themed (fender, gibson, valencia, etc.)

So it would try "hawaiianfordaustraliafender", "hawaiianfordaustraliagobson", etc.

Right now I am making it run all wordlists at once, but this is inefficient as it repeats words and it has a lot of combinations that I know are not correct (incorrect order, etc.)

1: I encrypted the wallet on a live ubuntu CD. Is there any difference in encoding?
2: Is there any faster way to check the key, besides submitting a message to bitcoind? I am currently doing about 3-4 guesses per second which isn't cutting it so far

I have what I thought was the key, but so far no luck. If the key is somehow in a different encoding, then I don't want to be grabbing at sand, but I also don't want to sit around for 10 years. Wondering what some alternatives are.

another error:
Code:
(Errno::ECONNREFUSED)

That one means the script couldn't connect to your wallet via RPC.  Check that the daemon is running with: -rpcpassword=some-password -rpcport=8332



1: I encrypted the wallet on a live ubuntu CD. Is there any difference in encoding?

I'm not sure.  I suggest you test it with your exact setup.  Create a new wallet with a short password, copy it onto the new system, and try the brute force script with a typo in the password.  That will verify that everything is working correctly.

Quote
2: Is there any faster way to check the key, besides submitting a message to bitcoind? I am currently doing about 3-4 guesses per second which isn't cutting it so far

Bitcoin stretches the keys to about 0.1 seconds on the CPU where you create your wallet.  4 per second suggests you might be cracking on a slower CPU than the one where your wallet came from.

Submitting to bitcoind is pretty fast.  Any of the RPC scripts should keep bitcoind at 99% CPU.  Bitcoind itself is using OpenSSL which is also pretty fast.  There's not much to optimize there.

Bitcoind only uses a single CPU.  A multithreaded version would be several times faster.

GPUs would have less performance gain than mining, but they would help.  You'll need someone with experience programming GPUs.  I do not.

The best case for optimizing the number crunching is we could speed things up a few hundred times.  You will get MUCH bigger gains by targeting the search better.  It's easy to get literally a trillion-times speedup by narrowing the search criteria, so that's where I focus most of my time.

Multibit doesn't have an RPC or command line interface I can use.  I'll try using BitcoinJ to access it when I have some time.
