The next release of oclHashcat-plus is expected to include a new gpu-based TrueCrypt-cracking module that will apparently make it the fastest TrueCrypt cracker that is publicly available. They're listing speeds of roughly the 50K to 450K hashes/sec (very impressive!), although this will obviously vary according to the type and number of GPUs used, etc. (Hopefully I'm not misinterpreting their current results, but if so I apologize). http://hashcat.net/forum/thread-2301.html TrueCrypt volumes are hardly one of the low-hanging fruits. Hats off to the Hashcat developers for choosing to take on such a worthy opponent! I see nothing wrong with these types of cracking endeavors. If someone chooses to attempt to crack a TrueCrypt volume head-on through the use of massive processing power then I say more power to them. (Guys, just try not to overheat the planet too much, ok?) TrueCrypt was designed to resist exactly this type of attack, so I'm not worried about the security risks to properly set up volumes. They may gobble up the insecure ones, though! For those of you who may not want your volumes to be cracked by Hashcat users, may I suggest you ensure that your PWs are long and strong enough? Or add a keyfile? And remember, this new speed increase probably represents a mere fraction of what is already out there privately.
