Boy, sure glad we stopped using FILETOPIA and DCC++ about 7 years ago!

One of Moxie’s programs, ‘ChapCrack’ targets MS-CHAPv2 handshakes and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) communications to generate a key
Hmm… scary.

that can be fed to another program dubbed ‘CloudCracker’ which runs on super computer utilising customised hardware.
Hmm… not so scary.

In less than a day CloudCracker generates another key
But on what kind of super computer?

which can then be fed back into ChapCrack enabling ChapCrack to break the Data Encryption Standard (DES) codes.
Scary.

I’m not sure what to think of this…

OpenVPN supports WinXP (and most everything else).
