Proactive Password Auditor 1.7 released
ElcomSoft has released Proactive Password Auditor 1.7, a password audit and security test tool that makes it easy for NT4/2000/XP/2003 systems administrators to identify and close security holes in their networks. By running Proactive Password Auditor regularly, managers can have peace of mind that the basic lock on their networks is secure.
New features in version 1.7 include full UNICODE compliance, allowing the program to work with user names and passwords in all of the Asian languages; and Rainbow Attack for NTLM as well as LM authentication, allowing you to create pre-computed hash tables that dramatically reduce the amount of time required to find most passwords. Besides, new version is now able to work on machines with DEP (Data Execution Prevention) feature enabled, and supports Windows Vista.
Proactive Password Auditor v. 1.7 runs under Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003 and Windows Vista; some program features require Administrator privileges. Prices begin at US$299 for networks with up to 20 user accounts.
