Latest Change v-2.2_rc3:
+ Detect FreeRDP-Nightly installation. It is recommended that if you are using the RDP module, it be built against a current version of FreeRDP. The FreeRDP-Nightly site provides binaries for several platforms and can be installed side-by-side with the released version. Medusa will detect and use the nightly version during its build process.
+ Disable NTLMv2 mode in SMBNT module. The default LMv2 mode should handle all systems that require NTLMv2 and not impact any password guessing efforts. LMv2 is basically a compact version of NTLMv2.
Medusa is a speedy, parallel, and modular, login brute-forcer. The goal is to support as many services which allow remote authentication as possible. The author considers following items as some of the key features of this application:
Thread-based parallel testing. Brute-force testing can be performed against multiple hosts, users or passwords concurrently.
Flexible user input. Target information (host/user/password) can be specified in a variety of ways. For example, each item can be either a single entry or a file containing multiple entries. Additionally, a combination file format allows the user to refine their target listing.
Modular design. Each service module exists as an independent .mod file. This means that no modifications are necessary to the core application in order to extend the supported list of services for brute-forcing.
Multiple protocols supported. Many services are currently supported (e.g. SMB, HTTP, MS-SQL, POP3, RDP, SSHv2, among others).
