RE: Detection tool?

Well, I do not think it is possible to know what a machine is doing locally, cracking a password or just using Word! :)

The only "weakness" you can exploit is if the machine is running in promiscuous mode to sniff around all the 
login/passwords on the network (such Cain & Abel, LC4, ...), then you can look for cards in promiscuous mode (tools as 
NFR NIDS, Antisniff, PromiScan, ...) perform this. Knowing what a box is doing offline seems to be more...intrusive!

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