4th Day of Christmas: Using Online Digest Databases
After identifying the type of hash algorithm, we can now try and crack the digest. One useful tool found on Kali Linux is findmyhash. findmyhash look up several online databases for a specific digest. Once it found a match, it will stop and return the corresponding text that can be used to derive the digest.
findmyhash <hash algorithm> -h <hash>
findmyhash In Action
Original text: password
Do note that this process may take some time and may not yield any result (if the digest cannot be found on any online database findmyhash uses).
