I have used excell for this in the past. You can create a column with say Acme001, acme002, then click and drag like you are going to copy from one cell to another. If you have both of these initial cells highlighted then it will auto-increment for you giving you Acme003, Acme004....

Hi list,

I am pentesting the backbone of an ISP. There are several ssh and
telnet ports open, and I would like to launch a brute force password
attack. However, i want to lower the number of possibilities to try to
those common combinations we all use in our company (ACME2007,
AcmE2OO7, AcMe123, etc.).
is anybody aware of a tool that can generate a list of passwords from
a root word, the company name for example, or is there any source that
lists all the trivial combination of words commonly used as passwords.

Thanks guys.
