Passcape Wordlist Collection

Dictionaries Collection

Passcape Wordlist Collection (further referred to as PWC) is the result of the many months of work, a unique collection of wordlists and pass-phrases gathered from a wide range of sources, as well as created by our company.
PWC consists of over 50 language dictionaries, over a dozen subject-focused, a number of international dictionaries, and much more.
PWC is a collection of dictionaries with various phrases to be used in phrase attacks. Some unique wordlists were created by parsing popular lyrics.
PWC incorporates ~ 250 wordlists (over 12 GB) with English and international names, surnames, pet names, web and email logins, etc.
PWC contains a powerful collection of wordlists taken from encyclopedias, e-books, and dictionaries. To create the collection, we parsed over 670 encyclopedias, about 10000 e-books, 70 English dictionaries and Wikipedia database.
PWC holds over 100 million domain names.
The heart of the collection is ~57 GB of real and leaked passwords.

What is it for
Each dictionary from the collection is a text file with .dic (ASCII text, Windows encoding), .udic (UNICODE 16) or .utf (UNICODE8) extension. Lines are terminated with the CR-LF pair. All the strings are arranged in alphabetical order and are duplicate-free. The wordlists are ready for use in password recovery applications that implement dictionary attacks.
A dictionary attack is one of the most efficient tools for the recovery of passwords that are not stored explicitly. For instance, Windows user account passwords. During such an attack, the program checks a word after a word from the specified wordlist until the initial password is found. This technique is efficient since many people use regular words and phrases for their passwords. Certainly, the greater the wordlist is, the greater is your chances to recover the initial password.
All pass-phrase wordlists are much alike, except that each string in the dictionary contains a complete pass-phrase instead of a single word. For example, 'to be or not to be' or 'the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog'. The pass-phrase dictionaries are meant to be used with Passcape Software products in the pass-phrase attack.
The pass-phrase attack has not been practically used in password recovery applications until recently, mainly, because of the too great amount of labor required for the composition of the dictionaries. In the meantime, the pass-phrase attack is an extremely effective tool for recovering composite, complex, and multiple-word passwords.

Where and how it is to be used
It's not that easy to find a decent collection of unique wordlists online. Good wordlists are normally large, and downloading them takes quite some time. 
One of the original and courageous solutions is using online wordlists, like the way it is implemented in Network Password Recovery Wizard, Opera Password Recovery, Mozilla Password Recovery, or Windows Password Recovery. However, with this approach, such wordlists, unfortunately, can hardly be used with other applications. The best solution to the issue would be to use precompiled collections of thematic dictionaries like Passcape Wordlist Collection.
The use of wordlist collection in password recovery software doesn't seem hard even for a novice user. All it normally takes is to set a path to wordlist (or to several ones) in a program's settings before launching the dictionary attack. Since all PWC dictionaries are ready for use, you can even specify a path to the CD with the wordlists, so you don't need to have them copied to your computer's hard drive beforehand.
