Hydra v4

Hi folks!

A complete rewrite of hydra is currently going on.
Most work on the engine as been completed and tested so far,
however some items are still open where help from the pentest
community is required.

What is hydra?
--------------
Hydra is a password cracker for many, many network protocols.
The first release was in August 2000, where now in February 2004
  the tool is still not only fully supported but also being expanded.
Current supported protocols:
  telnet ftp pop3 imap smb smbnt http https http-proxy cisco
  cisco-enable ldap mysql nntp vnc rexec socks5 icq pcnfs
Many people have submitted attack modules and code, including
  Renaud Deraison/Nessus, FX/Phenolite, Plasmoid/THC, J.Marx/Secunet,
  ocsic, mcbethh, m0j0.j0j0, bigbud and more!
Hydra is included in Nessus, and voted into the Top-50 security tool list.

How can you help?
-----------------
Betatesters:
 * test the cracking modules, that they work even against rare versions
   or newest releases (e.g. VNC, LDAP, socks5 and icq)
 * stress testing the new engine - many servers in parallel, high amount
   of tasks, SSL stuff, etc.
Code Contributors: (especially welcomed!)
 * A GTK interface would be great
 * Submit new modules. Interesting would be: SAP R/3, MS-SQL, Oracle
   SQL*Net, PC-Anywhere, SSHv1, SSHv2, BGPv4, HTTP-NTLM
   or anything else you might be able to do (and is not there yet).

If you would like to contribute, please email to vh () thc org with a short
information what/how you would like to contribute and you will
be added to the internal mailing list.

What will be new in v4?
-----------------------
 * Even more attack modules
 * Faster, up to 20% speed increase
 * GUI for the masses :-)
 * PalmOS version
 * Zaurus version
 * Highly reliable code
 * Intelligent target load balancing and detection of maximum connects possible
 * Session restore functionality if process is terminated
 * ... and more

Thanks a lot!


Ciao...
