OctoPASS: Distributed Password RecoveryOctoPass is a new powerful password recovery system made for recovering forgotten or lost passwords using distributed computing.
The current version supports brute force attack only. Password Recovery is extremely resource-consuming task. If a password protection is well done, brute force attack may be the only recovery method available.
