    Normally, an NTLM password in Windows Vista composed of 8 upper or lower case alphanumeric characters would take roughly two months for a recent dual core processor to find. However, technology from this Moscow firm reduces this to a period of 3 days with a powerful GPU and its version 2.0 of Distributed Password Recovery. A simple $150 card is enough to multiply power by a factor of 20. Moreover, other cracking software is already planned for Office, PGP and a dozen of other programs and the license price remains reasonable (600€ for up to 20 client posts).
