Is LophtCrack SMP (dual processor) enabled?
For those of us that like to crack passwords, just wondering what software application out there takes advantage of a dual processor (or better) systems? What multithreaded password cracking programs are available?
For whatever reason i always though L0phtCrack was, but i'm not certain.

That should be an easy test... I think...
If you're using NT, 2k or XP,
run l0pht without any other programs running and pull up task manager.
Check to see if both of the CPUs are being utilized.
I use this program to audit my users passwords but only with a single 1.9 ghz processor.
I will usually just start it before I leave for the night so I won't need access to my pc.
I used to use a dual 450mhz machine and if I remember correcly, it does utilize both processors.
