UNIX users often smugly assert that the best free security tools support their platform first, and Windows ports are often an afterthought. They are usually right, but Cain & Abel is a glaring exception. This Windows-only password recovery tool handles an enormous variety of tasks. It can recover passwords by sniffing the network, cracking encrypted passwords using dictionary, brute-force and cryptanalysis attacks, recording VoIP conversations, decoding scrambled passwords, revealing password boxes, uncovering cached passwords and analyzing routing protocols. It is also well documented.

I would like to share with you a crowdfunding progect I’ve founded on Indiegogo. Thhe final goal of this project would be to create a website where you can enter a password’s hash ( MD5, SHA-1 ) and il will send you back the password per email. The porject is made to recovery lost passwords but I bet it wouldn’t see the diffrence between a lost password and a password stolen from a database.
I wonder if it will be able to crack a 9-10 words password but let’s try.
Even giving 10 dollars you support the project so it doesn’t coast nothing to try !
The best Windows security tool in regards to multipurpose functionality. I use it a lot when teaching classes in Windows Security due to its extensive funcionality and ease of use.
