wordlistctl: large database of dictionaries [Dictionary Collection]

wordlistctl is a program that contains a large database of dictionaries. In fact, it is this database that is of interest, dictionaries can be downloaded directly, without this program – I will give links to the databases below, they are in JSON format, that is, quite readable.

wordlistctl is created by blackarch.org developers, web site: https://github.com/BlackArch/wordlistctl

How to install wordlistctl

Installing wordlistctl on Kali Linux:

sudo apt install python3-pip python3-libtorrent python3-coloredlogs
git clone https://github.com/BlackArch/wordlistctl
cd wordlistctl

Open the requirements.txt file

gedit requirements.txt

And remove the line from there


Then continue:

sudo pip3 install -r requirements.txt
python3 ./wordlistctl.py

In BlackArch, this program is in the standard repository – install directly from there.

sudo pacman -S wordlistctl

How to use wordlistctl

All dictionaries are divided into 5 categories:

  • username
  • password
  • hostname
  • filename
  • misc = other

To show all dictionaries, for example, in the password category:

wordlistctl -F password

With the -S option, you can search by dictionary names, for example, search for ‘rus’:

wordlistctl -S rus

wordlistctl -f 1714 -d wordlists -Xr

Collection of dictionaries from the WirelessHack.org site [Dictionaries for hacking Wi-Fi]

The WirelessHack.org site collected dictionaries that have been hanging around for some time here and there.

Description page: https://www.wirelesshack.org/wpa-wpa2-word-list-dictionaries.html

Included dictionaries:

  • BIG-WPA-LIST-1 (size 247MB)
  • BIG-WPA-LIST-2 (size 307MB)
  • BIG-WPA-LIST-3 (size 277MB)
  • Darkc0de.lst (size 17.4MB) - this was the default dictionary in Backtrack 5
  • Rockyou.txt (size 133MB) - default dictionary in Kali Linux
  • Names (size 3.7MB) - names and variants of names

Besides them, there are still quite a few dictionaries, for a total of 8.5 GB. If you use dictionaries infrequently, it is recommended to compress them for save storage space – they are plain text files that may be compressed very well – after archiving they will take about 10 times less space.
