So your telling me your Windows login password is complex? – your saying no one will ever guess it or figure it out! … Let’s see if your right: Welcome Ophcrack, the program that smash dreams and makes you live paranoid.
On your Windows-based machine and assuming you have local administrator rights do the following:
- go here: http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/
- download and install
- click the load button to load the local passwords on your computer
- start the cracking process and let it run for a while. If it only take a little while to crack it, is your ‘truly’ password secure?
If the process has been running for a few hours and your password hasn’t been cracked, I guess your ‘OK’ or maybe you just need to run in a little while longer or maybe a few more days or weeks or months. Paranoid, yet? 😛
