Oracle Password Cracker written in PL/SQL

Oracle Password Cracker written in PL/SQL



Hi Guys, =0D
=0D
I have just released a free Oracle password cracker written completely in PL/SQL on my website. The reason for doing this is to try and encourage people to "test" passwords for strength in their own databases. I am not seeing any real improvements in password strength generally across the industry over the last 8 years. =0D

It is not the intention to replace the fast C based crackers such as woraauthbf but instead to suppliment it. In my experience I find that people have not covered the bases yet, that is they still have passwords set to usernames, passwords set to defaults and also extremely weak passwords. =0D
=0D
I often suggest to people to download binary based crackers but there is often a reticence to do this. Hence I decided to create a PL/SQL based one. This way there is no excuse, its a SQL script that can be run in SQL*Plus and also its going to find the core issues anyway before you need a faster cracker. =0D

Some details on how it works and what it does are included in the page http://www.petefinnigan.com/oracle_password_cracker.htm for the cracker. You can also download it from the same page. =0D

hope its useful =0D

cheers =0D
