Advanced NT Security Explorer (ANTExp) is an application for Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP system administrators for finding holes in system security. It analyses user password hashes, and tries to recover plain-text passwords. If it's possible to recover the password in a reasonable time, the password should be considered to be insecure. ANTExp is very fast - tries about 900,000 passwords per second on a Pentium-III/450 CPU. Tested on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP.

Microsoft Security Bulletin (MS01-001) - The Web Extender Client (WEC), a component that ships as part of Office 2000, Windows 2000, and Windows Me, does not respect the IE Security settings regarding when NTLM authentication will be performed - instead, WEC will perform NTLM authentication with any server that requests it. If a user established a session with a malicious user's web site - either by browsing to the site or by opening an HTML mail that initiated a session with it - an application on the site could capture the user's NTLM credentials. The malicious user could then use an offline brute force attack, or with specialized tools, could submit a variant of these credentials in an attempt to protected resources. Microsoft FAQ on this issue available here.
