At first you have to select the desired Dictionary File. Click the "Select Dictionary File..." button at the "Dictionary" tab and select the needed file.
In that Attack the program will try all words from it as passwords for the selected Document. It really helps when the Password has some meaning, i.e. the whole word. You can select an option "Smart mutations" or "Try all possible upper/lower case combinations" – it may really help if you're not sure about the register the Password has been typed in. For example, let's assume that the next word in dictionary is «PASSword» (the case, actually, doesn't matter here). With the second option enabled, the program will just try all possible combinations, like:
However, checking all such combinations takes a lot of time: in the example above, the program will check 2^8 words (i.e. 256) instead of one. With Smart Mutations, you can eliminate a number of "virtually impossible" combinations, and here are all the words which will be checked:
PASSword (as is)
password (all lower case)
PASSWORD (all upper case)
Password (first uppercase, rest lowercase)
pASSWORD (first lower case, rest uppercase)
PaSSWoRD (elite: vowels in lc, others in uc)
So, it makes only 10 combinations for each word.
The "Start line #" option allows you to start an Attack from a given line (in dictionary); if you'll interrupt the attack, the "current" line number will be written there (and saved to the Project File, of course).
