Hashcat is the world’s fastest and most advanced password recovery utility, supporting five unique modes of attack for over 200 highly-optimized hashing algorithms. hashcat currently supports CPUs, GPUs, and other hardware accelerators on Linux, Windows, and OSX, and has facilities to help enable distributed password cracking.

Think your 12 character passwords are still strong enough? One of the top password cracking programs can now crack password up to 256 characters! The 4.x release of Hashcat blows through the previous 32 character password cracking limit and can now crack up to 256 character passwords. It has been very helpful for working through Troy Hunt’s half a billion password hash release.

This is not an easy prog to use. Start with Google and if you think you’re up to it then have a look at the hashcat Forum.
