Biggest Wordlist Ever?

| | Comments (0)

That's what people are asking on a number of hacking websites, as the link for a 28GB wordlist is being passed around. Of course, the excitement of using such a list with their favourite brute forcing tool soon turns to disappointment when they realise there's no text editor or password cracker in existence that can actually open the file. Or, as one guy put it:

"I cant find any thing that opens this. Every text editor i use says error and a reference to the size. so far i have tryed :-
microsoft Word
Notepad
WinWord
internet explorer
Dream Weaver
open office word.

and it crashes all my brueforcers."

The download might as well be called "How to waste 28GB of your bandwidth".
