I successfully compiled THC Hydra with CygWin and also Burp on Windows 7. I have read quite a few tutorials but i cant seem to get hydra do its thing. Below is the info i got from Burp (i replaced some info with x's or y's) and at the bottom the commandline of which i think it should work. Unfortunaely after i hit enter hydra just comes back with some syntax information.
BURP OUTPUT :
POST /login.php?action=in HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:47.0)
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate, br
This is produced on a fail :
Wrong username and/or password.
This is my command line :
hydra -l yyyyy -P cygwin64/john.txt http://www.xxxxxx.com https-post-form "/login.php:req_username=^USER^&req_password=^PASS^&login=Login:Wrong username and/or password." -V
Im rather new to this so many thanks in advance for your help !
