RE: [lists] What ever happened to the Netbios share scanner utilities?

I'm affraid this isn't exactly correct.
Cain is is indeed a nice SMB sniffer and an
SMB password cracker (well, a hash cracker to be exact);
however, it's not a login bruteforcer.



Having said that I have a very simple question that has been 
eluding me as of late.  What ever happened to the evolution 
of the Windows share scanner/brute force utility? 

I've done what I consider to be fairly extensive Google 
searching, but have not been able to find a utility that fits 
the following parameters:

Run on windows, scans an IP range for machines with 
accessible netbios shares, and is capable of attempting a 
brute force attempt on these shares, using a wordlist it 
generates on the fly and is configurable to length and 
character content (much like Brutus).

I believe Cain and Abel at http://www.oxid.it/cain.html fits your bill.  A
very good and flexible sniffer/cracker.
