RE: Detection tool?

If it is a brute force tool you could simply look at the logs for failed logons and locked out users. If they are 
running an offline tool against the password hashes then there is nothing you can do because they can get the hash 
files and take them home and work on them.

How can someone detect a password cracking tool on a network?
