~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~
New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).
This means that the entire keyspace, or every possible combination of:
...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:
(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)
8-character passwords can now be brute-forced by computers that can try all 6 quadrillion permutations in 2 and a half hours, but really, any good password system should lock the user out after the first quadrillion guesses. By the second quadrillion, it's probably safe to assume that it's not a legitimate login attempt.
Old store signs are one of the things I love snapping. They are the closest thing we have to time travel.
I'm pondering to make them next summer's photography project. I can also talk about fonts and other design fashion as it evolved through time.

The other day, I tooted about how I'm using #vim to take time stamped notes and a couple of people said that might be handy.

I love open source. Information Security is important to me. I work on Icecast in my free time.
