Ravan, password cracking using Javascript!

Ravan is a new password cracking tool based on Javascript.

Wait, what ? Javascript ? Yes, as the author explains, modern Javascript engines are not so slow anymore, and in addition HTML 5 brings a new “feature” with webworkers which allow the browser to run Javascript in the background (e.g without waiting on the page executing the script).

Combine it with several computers connecting to the same page executing a password cracking script and you get easily quite a powerful distributed password cracker.
