Ophcrack 3.3.1 & LiveCD – Free Rainbow Table Password Cracking Tool

Don't let your data go over to the Dark Side!

Ophcrack is a free Windows password cracker based on rainbow tables. It is a very efficient implementation of rainbow tables done by the inventors of the method. It comes with a Graphical User Interface and runs on multiple platforms. It works based on a time-memory trade-off using rainbow tables. This is a new variant of Hellman’s original trade-off, with better performance. It recovers 99.9% of alphanumeric passwords in seconds.

We mentioned it in our RainbowCrack and Rainbow Tables article, definitely one of the best free options for Rainbow Cracking.


  • Runs on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X
  • Cracks LM and NTLM hashes.
  • Free tables available for Windows XP and Vista.
  • Brute-force module for simple passwords.
  • Audit mode and CSV export.
  • Real-time graphs to analyze the passwords.
  • LiveCD available to simplify the cracking.
  • Loads hashes from encrypted SAM recovered from a Windows partition, Vista included.
  • Free and open source software (GPL).

You can find the various tables they offer here (mostly free with some paid):
