The Creator of the program considers the following elements as some of the key features of this application:

  • Parallel Thread-based testing. The brute-force test can be performed on multiple computers, users, or passwords simultaneously.
  • Flexible user login. Target information (host / user / Password ) can be defined in different ways. For example, each item can be either a single entry or a file containing multiple entries. In addition, a combination file format allows the user to improve the registration of their target.
  • Modular design. Each module exists as a separate .mod file. This means that no modifications are required to the basic application in order to extend the list of supported brute-forcing services.
  • Multiple protocols are supported. Many services are currently supported (eg SMB, HTTP, POP3, MS-SQL, SSHv2, among others).

The Medusa tool is already pre-installed on every version of Kali Linux which you can easily use by typing “jellyfishFrom the Linux terminal.
