Greeting Experts,
      I have been asked to do some bruteforicing on some of the websites we support for possible week passwords on the SA/Root accounts on our Apache and MSSQL databases..  I am in the process of using burp suite Pro… But I need to create focused wordlist (company Name, administrator name, birthdates, etc.) based on the platforms that each one runs on…  I need to combine both alphanumeric combinations with a focuses on fixed word like admin (i.e. admin1, admin2, admin3, and so forth), password (i.e. password1, password2, password3, and so forth).  This does need to include special characters that can be used in combination with known week passwords.. Like p@ssw0rds or P@ssw0rds.... Can somebody point me in the right direction… thanks?

I'd try the most popular weak password lists first, then a list like Rockyou.txt and then you can use several tools to generate a more targeted list. John the ripper can do just that, you just use the -sdtout switch and redirect to a file.
john.exe -w=words.txt -stdout -rules=wordlist >output.txt
That will look at your target word list called words.txt, apply the rules called "wordlist" in the john.conf file and output to a file called out;put.txt. There are other rule sets you can write or use that are already in john.conf. If you want a custom rule add it to the very bottom of john.conf and it will look something like this:

[List.Rules:prefix_digits]
A0"[0-9][0-9]"
A0"[0-9][0-9][0-9]"

[List.Rules:append_digits] 
Az"[0-9][0-9]"
Az"[0-9][0-9][0-9]"

Open in new window

Those do just what they say, and you call then like "-rules=prefix_digits"
