I recently had the pleasure of competing in the Defcon 18 password cracking challenge affectionately called “Crack Me if You Can“. When I first heard about the challenge I knew Backtrack had to be involved so I set on the task of compiling a team. Due to the Black Hat Trainings and Social-Engineer CTF most of our guys were pretty busy so I decided to enlist the help of my best friend Dakykilla and the guys who write and maintain Hashcat and Oclhashcat. These two tools are the best password cracking software to date and we proved it in the contest. Since Hashcat was the primary software used we called ourselves Team Hashcat.
