    Penetration testing

    Hi all.

    I'm looking to penetrate my system and I'm looking for some reliable tools. Does anyone know of an up to date password cracker I could use on my system? (XP here). I've looked but none of them seem to work when I try to unzip them.

    John the Ripper - http://www.openwall.com/john/

    Cain & Abel - http://www.oxid.it/cain.html

    Brutus - http://www.hoobie.net/brutus/ (might work, depends on your needs)

    These all came from one page, which was the first hit in a Google search for password cracking tools penetration testing

    Real quick - J_K9's thread that he mentions:

    \"We\'re the middle children of history.... no purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We\'ve all been raised by television to believe that one day we\'ll all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars -- but we won\'t. And we\'re learning slowly that fact. And we\'re very, very pissed off.\" - Tyler (Brad Pitt) Fight Club.
