    Obtaining/cracking passwords remotely

    Is it possible to use a password cracker (L0pht Crack 4) to obtain then crack passwords when remotely connected with telnet?

    You may want to re-phrase your question to something like, "How can I prevent someone from using a password cracker remotely against my systems". This way you would likely get answers rather than neg's.

    LuaLua -- The question you asked implies that you would be illegally obtaining encrypted passwords to crack with the intention of compromising a system. I think that's why DjM was warning you to quickly rephrase that question to one that does not suggest illegal activities. Most folks here will not help you commit a crime.

    If, however, you're interested in how to protect against such an attack, I would recommend using shadow passwords (mostly used these days anyway).

    One more thing. The word 'telnet' makes the hairs back on my neck stand up. It's an antiquated and thoroughly insecure protocol. If you're not using ssh, you really should be!

    What would be the point of a security website if it were used to help people crack or hack?
