  • Rainbow Crack

    I heard about a password cracking technique called Rainbow Crack.. Can anyone please tell me how it works and what the the tables associated with it are?? Also how is it specific to NTLM??

    Take a look at The have a pretty good explaination, as well as tutorials. The technique isn't limited to NTLM. Googling will bring up a lot more information, too.

      instead of manually trying to brute force an encrypted hash, rainbow tables are a collection of hashes that can be searched through (faster than trying to brute force) to get the same result. others online say it better than i can at 8:30 in the morning...

      Mister Google has more.

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."
