Hi I am trying to complete the overthewire challenges. They require you to extract passwords and login as different users to proceed. Passwords are quite lengthy and I am not able to paste the in in terminal for what I believe is OS X design. I have tried circumventing that using sshpass and putty's plink, but to no success. What way can I do that?

    Did you try Ctrl+Shift+V or Shift+Insert? – Jakuje Dec 6 '15 at 12:17

    Neither secondary click + Paste nor Ctrl+ Shift+V work, although it works if typed out. – mega_creamery Dec 6 '15 at 12:38
  • I just started this game, and you can paste passwords in OS X Terminal, it just doesn't show stars for every character you type. – Behdad Dec 7 '15 at 19:34
  • Do you hit Enter after you paste? – Kamil Maciorowski Oct 21 '18 at 5:36
