L0phtCrack, the tried & true password cracking tool used by black hats and white hats alike, is poised for a comeback. Yay!
Symantec snuffed the handy app a couple of years ago, much to the chagrin of crooks, security geeks, and overworked sysadmins everywhere.
The original creators of L0phtCrack have reacquired the tool and are rumored to be releasing a new version next week at the SOURCE Boston conference.
cgisecurity.com is reporting that the new version will include several improvements, such as 64-bit Windows support and updated rainbow tables. We'll know the details and pricing information soon enough.
