Hashcat – Advanced Password Recovery Utility

Written by

Hashcat is a open source tool and the world’s fastest & most advanced password recovery utility, supporting five unique modes of attack for over 160 highly-optimized hashing algorithms. hashcat currently supports CPU’s, GPU’s other hardware-accelerators on Windows, Linux and OSX, and has facilities to help enable distributed password cracking.
