Tech > New Password-breaking Tool is 25X Faster

There's a new technique for breaking passwords that uses the graphics card's processor and memory. It's reported to be 25 times faster than previous techniques, so a password that could be brute forced in a day could now be broken in an hour. If this works against general encryption it's more chipping away at the edge of data security.
