Dictionary Attacks Type
1. Dictionary attack:
A dictionary attack uses a targeted technique of successively trying all the words in an exhaustive list called a dictionary (from a pre-arranged list of values).
2. Brute Force Attack
In contrast with a brute force attack, where a large proportion of key space is searched systematically, a dictionary attack tries only those possibilities which are most likely to succeed, typically derived from a list of words for example a dictionary (hence the phrase dictionary attack).
3. Hybrid Attack:
It works like a dictionary attack, but adds some numbers and symbols to the words from the dictionary and tries to crack the password.
4. Syllable Attack:
It is the combination of both brute force attacks and the dictionary attack.
5. Rule-Based Attack:
This attack is used when the attacker gets some information about the password.
