Default Re: Passwords

Lol. 20 hours later... OK so some passwords that can't be cracked are probably like... Unknown characters. They're basically encripted and theres no programs that can crack them. If you're gona go crack regular users computers (your friends computer account running XP) use Ophcrack it's a simple boot disk that runs rainbow tables through the password command and it tells you the password. Then you just enter it and youre in.

Default Re: Passwords

passwords are pretty insecure imo,
you can use a few simple programs, keyloggers, w/e to get them, or even just by spying on your friends.
its not really worth some random guy hacking some other random persons account, unless theres something he wants, but people you know may well try
