Openwall wordlists collection

The homepage URL for this wordlists collection is:

This wordlists collection is a result of processing many hundreds of public domain wordlist files from multiple sources and in a variety of file formats. Most files were rejected for being duplicates or for poor quality, but a few hundred remained and went into the combined wordlists you will find here.

The wordlists are intended primarily for use with password crackers such as John the Ripper and with password recovery utilities.

Included in this collection are wordlists for 20+ human languages and lists of common passwords. The included languages are: Afrikaans, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, and Yiddish. There's also a list of the common passwords and unique words for all the languages combined in one file (over 40 MB for almost 4 million entries).

Included only on the CD and not available in the downloadable version of the collection is a huge list of all the common passwords and words from all the languages with word mangling rules applied (to form other likely passwords, such as by adding capitalization or digits to words) and any duplicates purged. This wordlist is provided as a single uncompressed text file usable directly off the CD. Its size is almost 500 MB and it has over 40 million entries.

For all wordlists, the entries are sorted either alphabetically or for more common to less common passwords/words/languages with alphabetical order within each section (for about equally common passwords or words, or for individual languages). There're no duplicates.

The links below allow you to pay with a credit card online, via fax, or to obtain information for sending a money order or a check. Please don't hesitate to e-mail us at <orders at> if you experience any problems placing an order or if you'd like to pay by a method not listed here.

The prices are in US dollars and exclusive of shipping unless stated otherwise. Shipping costs for the first item range from $0.58 in the US ($28.83 total) to $1.80 to Australia ($30.05 total), or more if you choose to use UPS for faster delivery and package tracking.

CDs are shipped via US Postal Service First Class Mail (US) and Air Mail (overseas) or via UPS, within two business days after receiving the order.

Unless you've chosen to use UPS with its guaranteed fast delivery times, please allow 3 weeks for delivery to US addresses and 4 weeks to non-US addresses, although actual times are usually much less (a few days in the US).

It is our policy to replace defective products at no additional charge to you. If you don't receive the CD that was mailed to you, another CD may be sent to the same address at no additional cost, up to two months after the original shipping date.

Five good reasons to purchase the CD:

  • You get more content: the huge mangled wordlist is only available on the CD
  • Immediate access to all of the wordlists: they're uncompressed and usable right off the CD
  • You save time, bandwidth, and hard drive space
  • You can sleep well knowing that you've done your part to support the work on this collection
  • As a bonus, the CD has a complete mirror of, including John the Ripper password cracker; this makes for a total of over 600 MB of content

The wordlists on the CD, except for those found under the included mirror, are uncompressed DOS/Windows format text files (lines are terminated with CR-LF pairs). They are directly usable with most password crackers and password recovery utilities on both Unix and Windows systems. Please note that John the Ripper is smart enough to correctly process (uncompressed) text files even if they use linefeed conventions that don't match those of the host OS.

Alternatively, the reduced downloadable version of the collection is available under /pub/wordlists from the FTP mirrors.

The downloadable wordlist files are in Unix text format (lines terminated by single LF characters) and compressed with gzip. If you intend to use the wordlists on Windows and not Unix, you may get them converted to DOS/Windows format text files (lines terminated with CR-LF pairs) when decompressing. With gzip, that is achieved with the -a (or --ascii) command line option.

Please be sure to check out the license for redistribution terms.

Webmasters are welcome to re-sell the CD for a 20% commission. Please use RegNow product ID 7883-2 or PAD file available at (includes RegNow extensions).
