Crack Mac user password #

Environment

Extract hash

sudo ./plist2hashcat.py /Volumes/Target/var/db/dslocal/nodes/Default/users/username.plist

user:$ml$28328$7215a1faa91e6196fb53884c4320970d9705ae6f19e5b50e0a24243708629a9b$8e0588decbdb347e0b909a7a1b1bc9470fe7dd37e09a64f9d02b82cfba91116b13d7c172b5a65683ac8d2c873324b8d82255a51ced0792656e766fa1a9c23994

Save the output without the leading "user:" (otherwise you'll need to specify --username when running hashcat) to hash.txt

Start cracking

hashcat -a 0 -m 7100 --status -o found.txt hash.txt wordlist.txt
