Give Linux user access (Write) to Hard Drives

This is fairly straight forward to resolve. You can run the following command and replace /media/username/drive with the path to your drive.

sudo chmod ugo+wx /media/username/drive

If you need to locate the path to your drive, try running

lsblk

It should show all the hard drives mount points

Crack LUKS volume with Hashcat

Install hashcat

apt install hashcat

Find LUKS Volume

bob@localhost:~/$ dmesg
...
[ 1057.776074] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is off
[ 1057.776074] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Mode Sense: 43 00 00 00
[ 1057.776593] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA
[ 1057.780234]  sda: sda1
[ 1057.783346] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Attached SCSI removable disk
bob@localhost:~/$

From the above we see that the drive we just pluGged into the system is “sda” so our path and partition is “/dev/sda1”

Run hashcat

The following command will run hashcat against “/dev/sda1”, change if the encrypted partition is different. Mode is to brute force every 8 numeric character combination. Refer to the following link to learn more about mask attacks.
https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=mask_attack

Note: You should be able to dump the header and work off of that as well.

sudo hashcat -a 3 -m 14600 /dev/sda1 ?d?d?d?d?d?d?d?d

Show human readable time in dmesg

The -T option lets dmesg show user readable time.

Example:

$ dmesg -t
...
[Sat Nov 15 12:15:12 2019] CPU1: Package temperature/speed normal
[Sat Nov 15 12:14:12 2019] CPU3: Package temperature/speed normal
[Sat Nov 15 12:14:12 2019] CPU0: Package temperature/speed normal
[Sat Nov 15 12:14:12 2019] CPU4: Package temperature/speed normal
$

dmesg time options

$ dmesg -h | grep time
  -d, --show-delta            show time delta between printed messages
  -e, --reltime               show local time and time delta in readable format
  -T, --ctime                 show human-readable timestamp (may be inaccurate!)
  -t, --notime                don't show any timestamp with messages
      --time-format   show timestamp using the given format:
                                [delta|reltime|ctime|notime|iso]
Suspending/resume will make ctime and iso timestamps inaccurate.
