Local MySQL Password Bruteforcer is a python script to assess the strength of the local MySQL access passwords.

It attempts to enumerate local passwords against either the dictionary of passwords and single user or dictionary of users and passwords.

It is written in Python and can be easily ported as an executable for windows using tools such as py2exe.


No installation needed, just download and run.
