What is DEScrypt-CPU-Collision-Cracker?

A linux based high performance DEScrypt CPU cracker written in c++, it deduces the salt and uses a password list to crack hashes.

Why not use a rainbow table?

DEScrypt uses by default a two byte salt(comprised of characters [a-zA-Z0-9./] [1]) which would mean that you would need to produce roughly 65,536 unique rainbow tables, as a result its more efficient to use collision cracking to find out the plaintext password.


  • Ability to crack hashes both from a file and individually
  • Detects CPU cores
  • Adjustable number of threads
  • Colon-separated output file
  • Clear readable display
  • Average hash rate of 22,000/s with the default 10 threads on a single CPU core


    Command         Description
    -------         -----------
    -l=             File Location of HashList
    -i=             Individual Hash
    -w=             File Location of Wordlist
    -o=             File Location of Output File
    -t=             Number of Threads(Default is 10)
