Password lists
From: "dareios" <dareios () gmx at>

I am searching for "good" lists of common passwords. The definiton of good
in this context is that the passwords in the list are different from the
"aaaaa aaaab ... zzzzz" approach and contain also special characters (eg not
only words from a dictionary).
I want to use them with bruteforcers like "hydra". Does anybody know some
pointers where to find (or generate?) such lists?

Several pentesting live-distros like Auditor contain such lists. How useful
are they?
