What Is Mask Attack ?

Mask Attack

While dictionary attacks use lists of all possible phrases and phrases, mask attacks are much more specific in scope, often refining guesses based on symbols or numbers – usually based on existing knowledge.

For example, if a hacker knows that a password starts with a number, he can set up a mask to try only these types of passwords.

The length of the password, the arrangement of characters, the presence of special characters, or the number of times one character is repeated are just a few of the criteria that can be used to customize the mask.

The goal here is to drastically reduce the time it takes to crack a password and remove any unnecessary processing.
