Forgotten KeePassX password

Stages of having forgotten KeePassX master password:

  1. Denial
  2. Anger
  3. Depression

Faling to open your KeePassX database, while being quite sure that you enter correct password is a very frustrating experience.

Fortunately, while it’s hard to brute an unknown password, it’s much easier to do that when you almost have it right, but have doubts about 1 or 2 characters. See an example script on Github.
