WWWhack is a brute force utility that will try to crack web sites guarded by an web access password. This utility can use a word file or try all possible combinations, and by trial-and-error, will attempt to find a combination of username/password that is accepted by the web server.
This shows the weakness in securing sensitive areas of your web site by the web authentication method alone.
To use wwwhack 1.9 you need to set your system clock to the year 2000 or before as it expires in ’2001′.
Once again this is an oldskool tool but a lot of people are still seeking it, for learning purposes I presume as there are better alternatives now like thc-hydra.
