HashPump- A Tool To Exploit The Hash Length Extension Attack in Various Hashing Algorithms

HashPump-  A Tool To Exploit The Hash Length Extension Attack in Various Hashing Algorithms

Currently supported algorithms: MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512.

Help Menu

$ hashpump -h
HashPump [-h help] [-t test] [-s signature] [-d data] [-a additional] [-k keylength]
    HashPump generates strings to exploit signatures vulnerable to the Hash Length Extension Attack.
    -h --help          Display this message.
    -t --test          Run tests to verify each algorithm is operating properly.
    -s --signature     The signature from known message.
    -d --data          The data from the known message.
    -a --additional    The information you would like to add to the known message.
    -k --keylength     The length in bytes of the key being used to sign the original message with.
    Version 1.2.0 with CRC32, MD5, SHA1, SHA256 and SHA512 support.

Sample Output

$ hashpump -s '6d5f807e23db210bc254a28be2d6759a0f5f5d99' --data 'count=10&lat=37.351&user_id=1&long=-119.827&waffle=eggo' -a '&waffle=liege' -k 14

Compile and install

$ git clone
$ apt-get install g++ libssl-dev
$ cd HashPump
$ make
$ make install

apt-get and make install require root privileges to run correctly. The actual requirement is for -lcrypto, so depending on your operating system, your dependencies may vary.

On OS X HashPump can also be installed using Homebrew:

$ brew install hashpump

Python Bindings

Fellow Python lovers will be pleased with this addition. Saving me from writing an implementation of all these hash algorithms with the ability to modify states in Python, Python bindings have been added in the form of hashpumpy. This addition comes from zachriggle.


These Python bindings are available on PyPI and can be installed via pip. pip install hashpumpy


>>> import hashpumpy
>>> help(hashpumpy.hashpump)
Help on built-in function hashpump in module hashpumpy:

    hashpump(hexdigest, original_data, data_to_add, key_length) -> (digest, message)

        hexdigest(str):      Hex-encoded result of hashing key + original_data.
        original_data(str):  Known data used to get the hash result hexdigest.
        data_to_add(str):    Data to append
        key_length(int):     Length of unknown data prepended to the hash

        A tuple containing the new hex digest and the new message.
>>> hashpumpy.hashpump('ffffffff', 'original_data', 'data_to_add', len('KEYKEYKEY'))
('e3c4a05f', 'original_datadata_to_add')

Python 3 note

hashpumpy supports Python 3. Different from the Python 2 version, the second value (the new message) in the returned tuple from hashpumpy.hashpump is a bytes-like object instead of a string.
