I was wondering if anyone could advise:
I have a VPS that i am using to practice and understand ethical hacking.
When I use a large password list with hydra i notice that if i place the known password after about the 90th password, it never picks it up as being the correct password.
Here is my command:
"proxychains hydra -l root -P /root/Downloads/TestList.txt IPHERE ssh -V -v"
The output in the auth.log on the server im attacking says:
"Disconnecting: Too many authentication failures for root preauth"
Does this mean that my hydra is running too fast? Do i need to slow it down some how, and if so - how?
