I'm a very beginner in writing codes and I've started with python because it seemed the neatest and the easiest to start with (I currently have python 3.2).
Now I've read some online books and so on about coding in python, I've made some small programs and thats it.
But then I wanted to make a program that could brute-force a random password like:
PassWord = random.randint(0,9999)
PassWord = str(random.randint(0,9999))
Trial = ' '
while Trial != PassWord:
Trial = str(random.randint(0,9999))
if Trial == PassWord:
print('The password is: '+PassWord)
from itertools import product chars = '0123456789' # chars to look for for length in range(1, 3): # only do lengths of 1 + 2 to_attempt = product(chars, repeat=length) for attempt in to_attempt: print(''.join(attempt))
itertools.product produces a Cartesian join of its input(s) - in this case, it's being 'joined' to itself. So in the first iteration, each single character is printed. Then in the next iteration, because of
length is now == 2), generates '00', '01', etc... It's worth trying it and seeing the output to understand it better.
This also means you can throw in letters (uppercase/lowercase), and change the upperbound in the
It's certainly not going to break the world of code-breaking, but should give you an idea of the flexibility of Python and the tools available to you.
I'll leave you to check the passwords match and break out the loop.
