Before we dive into the process, ensure you have the following:

Understanding Hash:

First, let's understand what a Hash is. A hash function is a mathematical function used to map digital data of any size to digital data of a fixed size. Even a slight change in the input data results in a vastly different output. The values generated by a hash function are referred to as hash values, hash codes, hash sums, or simply hashes.

Now, let's proceed with the steps to crack or decode Hash files in Kali Linux.

Now, let's proceed with the steps to crack or decode Hash files in Kali Linux.

Step 1: Preparing the Hash File

  • Copy the MD hash into Leafpad (a notepad in Kali Linux) and save it as "hash.txt."
  • Move the file to the root folder.

Step 2: Running John the Ripper

  • Open the terminal and follow these commands (press Enter after each):
    • john--format=raw-MD5 /root/hash.txt

That's it! You've successfully cracked or decoded the Hash file using John the Ripper in Kali Linux.
