_______________________________________________________________________________ Product : Pandora v4.0 Platform : Windows 95/98/NT, X Windows on Linux 2.x

The long-awaited Pandora v4.0 with "point, click, and attack" GUI interface is now available. Running under Windows 95/98/NT or Linux with X, this security audit tool with full metal jacket ninja kungfu action was compiled with 100% freeware compilers using freeware libraries with no big corporation SDK assistance. In other words, the GUI looks and behaves the same on either Windows or Linux.

Old Pandora v3 exploits are back, with Netware 4.x AND Netware 5.x support. We have even updated several attacks to make them easier to use and to take advantage of our GUI.

The GUI interface has some important new features:

  • Offline and Online components. Offline for cracking passwords offline, and Online for direct server attacks.

Offline (for Windows and Linux) includes:

  • Password cracking of Netware 4.x and 5.x passwords.
  • Reads native NDS files -- as well as maintenance files such as BACKUP.DS and DSREPAIR.DIB -- and extracts password hashes for cracking.
  • Reads Netware 4.x and 5.x versions of NDS, BACKUP.DS, and DSREPAIR.DIB.
  • Multiple accounts can be brute forced and dictionary cracked simultaneously.
  • Preset and user-definable keyspace for brute forcing.
  • On screen sorting of account listings for easy viewing.
  • Built-in NDS browser to look at all NDS objects.
  • Remote Console Decryption using The Ruiner's decryption algorithm.

Online (Linux coming soon, hey we're in beta!) includes:

  • Attach to servers using only the password hash (if you do not wish to crack them).
  • Dictionary attacks against NDS objects that detect if Intruder Detection was triggered.
  • Browse for target servers and gather connection info for spoofing attacks.
  • GameOver spoofing attack against servers not using Level 3 packet signature.
  • Improved Level3-1 attack which no longer requires using a sniffer to find elusive data for Admin session hijacking, just add in the Admin's MAC address and we do the rest.
  • Several nasty Denial of Service attacks.

Full source code included in case you don't trust our binaries, and for adding your own code.
