Password Cracking

I was recommended this site by a friend of mine. I manage the website 
http://www.breakdownservices.com/ , and lately there have been numerous 
attempts at obtaining login information for legit casting directors. I 
was simply wondering what tools hackers are using to obtain such 
information (many of the attempts turned out to be successful). I did 
some research on my own, and read about brute force/dictionary attacks, 
but when trying to satisfy my knowledge of these techniques I couldn't 
find anything to use them with. Also, is this the only technique hackers 
could possible use on my site? I figure if I understand how this works, I 
can prevent it!
Thanks.
