 The Art of Downloading: Source and Binaries
 1. 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:
 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
