A new video has been uploaded to the Tenable Security YouTube Channel titled, "Integrating Hydra with Nessus":
When installing Hydra on Ubuntu-based systems, here are a few tips to get all of the modules working properly:
Hydra can test different protocols against user-supplied password databases. To enable Hydra to speak these protocols I found it helpful to install the following libraries:
|# apt-get install aptitude install libpcre3-dev libssl-dev libncp libncp-dev libpq5 libpq-dev libssh2-1 libssh2-1-dev libsvn-dev libssh-dev libfbclient2|
Hydra must exist in the system PATH in order for Nessus to find the program so I typically install it into "/usr/local". Since only the command line version of Hydra will be used by Nessus the graphical "xhydra" program does not need to be compiled. The xhydra program can be disabled using the switch "--disable-xhydra."
|./configure --prefix=/usr/local --disable-xhydra|
Hydra also has some problems finding all of the appropriate libraries and include files. Following are the fixes required for the Makefile to compile Hydra successfully on Ubuntu 9.10:
|-XLIBS= -lssl -lncp -lpq -lsvn_client-1 -lapr-0 -laprutil-0 -lsvn_client-1 -lapr-0 -laprutil-0 -lssh -lcrypto
+XLIBS= -lssl -lncp -lpq -lsvn_client-1 -lapr-1 -laprutil-1 -lsvn_client-1 -lssh -lcrypto
-XIPATHS= -I/usr/include/subversion-1 -I/usr/include/subversion-1
