Openwall wordlists collection

This wordlists collection is a result of processing many hundreds of public domain wordlist files from multiple sources and in a variety of file formats. Most files were rejected for being duplicates or for poor quality, but a few hundred remained and went into the combined wordlists you will find here.

The wordlists are intended primarily for use with password crackers such as John the Ripper and with third-party password recovery utilities.

Included in this collection are wordlists for 20+ human languages and lists of common passwords. The included languages are: Afrikaans, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, and Yiddish. There's also a list of the common passwords and unique words for all the languages combined in one file (over 5 million entries, taking up over 50 MB).

Included only in the full version and not available in the freely downloadable version of the collection is a huge list of all the common passwords and words from all the languages with word mangling rules applied (to form other likely passwords, such as by adding capitalization or digits to words) and any duplicates purged. This wordlist is provided as a single text file. Its size is almost 500 MB and it has over 40 million entries.

For all wordlists, the entries are sorted either alphabetically or for more common to less common passwords/words/languages with alphabetical order within each section (for about equally common passwords or words, or for individual languages). There are no duplicates.

Three good reasons to purchase the wordlists:

The wordlists are uncompressed DOS/Windows format text files (lines are terminated with CR-LF pairs). They are directly usable with most password crackers and password recovery utilities on both Unix and Windows systems. Please note that John the Ripper is smart enough to correctly process (uncompressed) text files even if they use linefeed conventions that don't match those of the host OS.

The link below allows you to pay online with a variety of payment methods, or to choose to pay offline.

Your purchase will be from FastSpring, a trusted reseller of software products and services.

Your private download directory will be created and a link to it e-mailed to you immediately upon receipt of your payment. You can browse a sample private download directory. If you would like to test download speed before you pay, you can download a copy of John the Ripper from the same server that will host the paid download.

Unconditional 7-day money back guarantee for purely online payments (including credit card payments, but not including bank wire transfers): if you're for any reason or for no reason at all unsatisfied with the product or download service, we will refund your payment on your request if the request arrives within 7 days after your payment date.

Please don't hesitate to e-mail us at <orders at> if you experience any problems placing an order or completing your download.

Alternatively, the reduced freely downloadable version of the collection is available under /pub/wordlists from the Openwall file archive, as well as from its mirrors.

The freely downloadable wordlist files are in Unix text format (lines terminated by single LF characters) and compressed with gzip. If you intend to use the wordlists on Windows and not Unix, you can get them converted to DOS/Windows format text files (lines terminated with CR-LF pairs) when decompressing. With gzip, that is achieved with the -a (or --ascii) command line option.
