But later In 2018, Bruteforce tools Which i used to work on Stopped Working and Then, I shifted to Phishing attack.
In this attack You have to send Links to the Victim,They will Click on Link Created by Using Phishing Tools for eg. Shellphish or any other tool and you will get their Password but it is not That much easy.
