Even NTLMv2  will break the hashing into chunks which are able to be 
individually broken down.

I'm not sure what you mean... NTLMv2 uses a single 128bit key for the
challenge and response...  Or are you referring to the NTLM2 session 
response key (56+56+16)? If so, that is not the same thing as NTLMv2...
you elaborate please ?
