The source code of state-of-the-art Hydra: hydra-6.2-src.tar.gz (compiles on all UNIX based platforms - even MacOS X, Cygwin on Windows, ARM-Linux, etc.) 2. The source code of the stable tree of Hydra in case v6 gives you problems on unusual platforms: hydra-5.9.1-src.tar.gz 3. The Win32/Cywin binary release: --- not anymore --- Install cygwin from https://www.cygwin.com and compile it yourself. If you do not have cygwin installed - how do you think you will do proper securiy testing? duh ... 4. ARM and Palm binaries here are old and not longer maintained: ARM: hydra-5.0-arm.tar.gz Palm: hydra-4.6-palm.zip
