checkpwd Oracle password cracker now supports multi-core CPU's

I was chatting to Alex this evening and he let me know that his password cracker checkpwd for Oracle now supports multi-core CPU's and multi-CPu machines. This now makes checkpwd one of the fastest Oracle password crackers for a PC and fro dictionary mode. 0rm's orabf is still the king of brute force speed though - maybe because checkpwd doesnt support brute force - who knows, we need to see a brute force version of checkpwd to compare.

Alex has released a short paper of the results of his performance testing of Oracle password crackers. Its titled "Benchmark Oracle Password Cracker - V1.00"
