I have one task with this attack command: -a3 #HL# -1 ?dabcdef ?1?1?1?1?1?1?1?1?1?1

so the keyspace size is: 16^10 = 1099511627776 

but in tasks.php the keyspace size says: 1000000000

Whats wrong?

be aware about the difference between the number of combinations which are tried and the hashcat keyspace. Especially in brute force tasks, hashcat has a slightly different way to denote the keyspace. It is explained here: https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=fre...a_keyspace

So this keyspace does not necessarily needs to be wrong. It's dependent on hashcat.
