Password exploitation classes online

open sesame

Irongeek.com is hosting an online class on password exploitation. The event was a fundraiser called ShoeCon, but they are hosting the entire series for everyone to share. Not only are the videos there, but you can download the powerpoint slides as well. There is a massive amount of information here on various topics like Hashcat, OCLHashcat, Cain, SAMDump2, Nir’s Password Recovery Tools, Password Renew, Backtrack 4 R1, UBCD4Win. There’s so much info, they split it into 3 sections. The videos are fairly long, between 1 and 2.5 hours each. What might surprise people is the amount of time that google is actually one of the main tools.

These videos can be a fantastic resource for hobby hackers, IT admins, and security professionals.

    That info would surprise the customers of the ISP I work for too.

    Looks interesting, hard information to digest in video form. The guy is hard to listen to, sounds like homestar runner..

    Irongeek is an awesome resource.
    I’ve been following it for years since Sharp Zaurus’ were the linux warwalking devices.
    You can learn a lot by browsing the site.

    Yea, Adrian is a really cool dude. Finally got to meet him in person this past year at Shmoocon. I think the Zaurus is still king of warwalking devices. Nothing else that small runs kismet natively, well except for the OpenMoko phones, but they are even more scarse than the Zaurus.

    Actually, I think he was advertising for ShoeCon.org, it’s on September 18th, 2010. He’ll be doing a talk on building a barcode LED flasher, which sounds like a really interesting concept.

    Shouldn’t that rather be “password cracking on cannabinoids.” ;)

    =) Well it is a hash cat after all, RR. I was thinking the same thing…. I guess you get a little too creative when stoned to properly hack things =( Too bad I know.
