You're missing a colon at the end of your if statement.

if__name__  == "__main__"
    main()

Open in new window


should be:

if__name__  == "__main__":
    main()

Open in new window

Ok... that's not the same error that you posted previously, but the error is pretty self explanatory.  It can't open the file passwords.txt which means either the file doesn't exist in your current directory or if it does, the user account that you're running as doesn't have permissions to it.

Yes you are right. passwords.txt dosent exist.

1 How to make password.txt in current directory
    vi /etc/passwd
     abc:x:1000:1000:UBUNTU,,,:/home/abc:/bin/bash

2 How to give permission to the user abc.

Thx

You can copy it there:

  cp /etc/password ./passwords.txt

To give read permission to it:

  chmod o+r ./passwords.txt

And I'm going to guess at your next question and tell you that you'll need a dictionary file in the same directory called dictionary.txt that contains a password guess per line.

And lastly... you're using a system that is using shadow passwords.  Your /etc/passwd file doesn't contain the hashed passwords in it.  You'd probably want to run it against /etc/shadow.
