1. WWWhack


A tool for cracking password-protected Web sites.
Password cracking is the science (and art) of guessing at the password for an application or system until the correct one is found. While popular tools such as L0phtCrack and John the Ripper exist for cracking passwords used to authenticate users to Microsoft Windows– and UNIX-based systems and networks, other tools such as WWWhack can be used to crack a different kind of password, one that is used to control access by users to a Web site. WWWhack can use both a dictionary attack or brute-force approach to cracking Web site credentials, and like most security tools, can be used either for good (auditing the security of password-protected sites) or bad (cracking passwords to steal sensitive data) purposes.
