Publisher's Description

Proactive Password Auditor is a password security test tool that's designed to allow Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and and Windows Server 2003-based systems administrators to identify and close security holes in their networks. Proactive Password Auditor helps secure networks by executing an audit of account passwords, and exposing insecure account passwords. If it is possible to recover the password within a reasonable time, the password is considered insecure. The software supports a few different methods of obtaining password hashes for further attack/audit: from dump files (generated by 3rd party tools like pwdump/pwdump2/pwdump3), Registry of local computer, binary Registry files (SAM and SYSTEM), memory of local computer, and memory of remote computers (Domain Controllers), including ones running Active Directory. The product features brute-force and dictionary attacks on LM and NTLM password hashes, effectively optimized for speed, plus rainbow attack, that uses pre-computed hash tables that allow to find most passwords in minutes instead of days or weeks.

it refused to work on my AMD64 based system. Kept saying that I needed to disable DEP. Obviously, this can't be done on an AMD64 ....
I tried to add it to the disable list... still no joy. So, to protect ones security ... Get an AMD64?

I am told by the author that it is intentional for brute-force attempts to be limited to 14 characters (because of the infeasibility of brute-force attacks on relatively long passwords). But it still shouldn't pop up and tell you that it accepts lengths up to 255. :)

The program so far seems to be working fine and as stated it would. Though I fail to see how someone could take points off for it not cracking a password quick enough.

Can't give it a 5, since it's been a half hour and it's still going, though according to the parameters needed to find my password, it could take up to a couple of days or more.

Very nice. Cracked my german (with additional chars suffixed) XP account pw in about 20 mins.
