    Always good to see new tools coming. Wonder how it holds up against Cain & Abel and John the Ripper

    Too bad it’s windows only, preffered Cain and Abel anyway

    @Goodpeople, I didn’t know John (the ripper) was able to do brute force login attempts. Guess you really learn somethings here ;)

    I stand corrected.

    Ofcourse I was talking about pass-crackers in general, but you are right. JTR is not a brute forcer. Oversight on my part. I’m sorry.

    As a side note: that is what you get when you’re only teaching instead of actively using it. You have a truckload of general information in your head. You only read up on the details when you need them in your classes.

    Someone should give bruter a run for its money when compared to C&A. Would be cool to see who wins.

    I’m not sure if it was this site or another blog but I saw a post about the development of brute forcing software that utilizes the video card channels as a way of speeding up the bruting process. That combined with the new cards on the market, increased RAM sizes and faster processors, bruting should go amazingly fast.

    We indeed had a post on the usage of the GPU for more than just fancy video display.

    Indeed both Ati (CTM)and Nvidia (CUDA) are providing a programming dev kit for cuda enabled GPU (have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Close_to_Metal or http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_home.html ) for more info. The fundamentals of the two are different (assembler vs C) but results will be in the same range.

    Thanks for the links. Also took a look into the developer kits and found it very interesting that the companies are doing that now.

    Quick side note, nVidia is going to be making processors for mobile phones now :)

    does ne one know how you determine teh “protocol” type when using bruter? and when would you select the brute force option? wouldn’t it be every time?

    Hi Guys…

    Installed the app, but I keep getting “error… Invalid Target” Any thoughts on this one? Doesn’t matter where I go. Firewall is off and nothing else is running.
