Want to crack a password fast?

Posted by rjbiii on September 10, 2007

To all those EDD operators who run up against password protection, and can’t get past it, try Orphcrack.

The multi-platform password cracker Ophcrack is incredibly fast. How fast? It can crack the password “Fgpyyih804423” in 160 seconds. Most people would consider that password fairly secure. The Microsoft password strength checker rates it “strong”. The Geekwisdom password strength meter rates it “mediocre”.

New toys…and new fears. [HT: Slashdot]
