Ncrack and the flexibility of its core engine

I just happened to come across this blog-post by HackerTarget security firm
and wanted to share:
The results: Ncrack wins. Notice in the last section that Medusa and Hydra
essentially DoS the FTP service and fail, while Ncrack with its dynamic
engine (even with the fastest template -T5) manages to finish successfully
and finds the account reliably. This is the power of Ncrack's dynamic engine.
Finally, I have some new ideas (heuristic algorithms involved) in the
making, with the goal of extending and improving the core engine even more.
