Password dictionaries

These are dictionaries that come with tools/worms/etc, designed for cracking passwords. As far as I know, I'm not breaking any licensing agreements by mirroring them with credit; if you don't want me to host one of these files, let me know and I'll remove it.

Name Compressed Uncompressed Notes
John the Ripper john.txt.bz2 (10,934 bytes) john.txt (21,935 bytes) Simple, extremely good, designed to be modified
Cain & Able cain.txt.bz2 (1,069,968 bytes) cain.txt (3,149,586 bytes) Fairly comprehensive, not ordered
Conficker worm conficker.txt.bz2 (1411 bytes) conficker.txt (702 bytes) Used by conficker worm to spread -- low quality
500 worst passwords 500-worst-passwords.txt.bz2 (1868 bytes) 500-worst-passwords.txt (3493 bytes)
370 Banned Twitter passwords twitter-banned.txt.bz2 (1509 bytes) twitter-banned.txt (2780 bytes)

Leaked passwords

Passwords that were leaked or stolen from sites. I'm hosting them because it seems like nobody else does (hopefully it isn't because hosting them is illegal :)). Naturally, I'm not the one who stole these; I simply found them online, removed any names/email addresses/etc (I don't see any reason to supply usernames -- if you do have a good reason, email me ( and I'll see if I have them.

The best use of these is to generate or test password lists.

Note: The dates are approximate.

Coverage (Rockyou)

I did some calculations and determined how many passwords you'd need, on average, to crack which percentage of users' passwords, based on the leaked passwords from These lists will crack the advertised amount on an average cross-section of people if no password restrictions are in place:

5918775.00%rockyou-75.txt (478,948 bytes)


I did some tests of my various dictionaries against the different sets of leaked passwords. I grouped them by the password set they were trying to crack:

Miscellaneous non-hacking dictionaries

These are dictionaries of words (etc), not passwords. They may be useful for one reason or another.

Name Compressed Uncompressed Notes
English english.txt.bz2 (1,368,101 bytes) english.txt (4,032,153 bytes) My combination of a couple lists, one from Andrew Orr, one from Brandon Enright
German german.txt.bz2 (2,371,487 bytes) german.txt (8,827,974 bytes) Compiled by Brandon Enright
American cities us_cities.txt.bz2 (77,081 bytes) us_cities.txt (207,041 bytes) Generated by RSnake
"Porno" porno.txt.bz2 (7,158,285 bytes) porno.txt (46,955,376 bytes) World's largest porno password collection!

Honeynet honeynet.txt.bz2 (889,525 bytes) honeynet.txt (2,906,298 bytes) From a honeynet run by Joshua Gimer
Honeynet - w/ count honeynet-withcount.txt.bz2 (901,868 bytes) honeynet-withcount.txt (4,040,938 bytes)

DirBuster has some awesome lists, too -- usernames and filenames.

Facebook lists

These are the lists I generated from this data. Some are more useful than others as password lists. All lists are sorted by commonness.

If you want a bunch of these, I highly recommend using the torrent. It's faster, and you'll get them all at once.
