+ - Brute-Force Password Cracking with GPUs-> 3

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "We all know that brute-force attacks with a CPU are slow, but GPUs are another store.

Some of their results are really fast, like in the billions of passwords per second, and that's only with two GTX 570s!"
