“FSCrack (Fast Screen Capturer) uses the Freenx (FreeNX) technology and
is based on the concept of utilizing multiple transparent X servers
each on multiple computers, thereby providing a transparent desktop
experience to the user.
Once FSCrack is started and configured, click the “Screen Capture” button. Enter a password for the
Freenx server configuration and click OK. The configuration and server
start up process should only take about 30 seconds.”

The agreement, which will last until 2023, requires the EPA to release data on the number of flood-related injuries and deaths within a month of receiving those reports.
Hundreds of deaths and tens of thousands of injuries are expected to occur in the next decade because of increased flooding in the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas. During periods of heavy rain, the ground becomes saturated, causing rivers and streams to rise, often causing the flooding to go far beyond previously predicted.
The agreement also requires the agency to release data on flood-related deaths and injuries within a week of receiving the report from the affected areas.
“One of the most important aspects of the agreement is that for the first time, the federal government will take steps to truly understand the magnitude and scope of the flood-related risks that U.S. communities face and use this information to guide and prioritize future prevention efforts,” the agency said in a statement. “We will work with state, local and tribal partners and weather information providers to collect the data and make it readily available to the public.”
A time-lapse video showing a river in West Virginia bursting its banks and forcing residents to flee their homes was posted on YouTube in January and received more than 3.6 million views as of May.
The flood of March 2011 in Missouri was the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history, with the state suffering $9 billion in damage. An estimated 44,000 people fled their homes, and three people died. A federal report later found that the flood was caused by heavy rainfall in the week prior to the storm. The city of Cape Girardeau, population 111,000, was nearly wiped out.

This cracker supports the following versions of JtR:
FSCrack is an add-on to John the Ripper (JtR) that makes the password cracking of network hashes easier.
FSCrack can find weak passwords for both MS Active Directory hashes and LDAP hashes. This makes FSCrack perfect for automatic password checking and alerting, or simply fast password testing before setting strong passwords.
Once a password has been found by JtR, FSCrack will display this password and all of its properties on the screen, including the length, whether or not it is a valid LDAP password, if it is based on a single character password or a repetition of characters password, if it is not encrypted and/or if it is already cracked, etc.
The FSCrack tool is not a generic password cracker but a helper to improve the performance of the password cracker JtR.
FSCrack can be used as an add-on to the password cracking software John The Ripper.
It has three main modes of operation.
This is the most common mode of operation, and the one described above. The password is cracked in parallel for all fields of the password, including the password itself.
Sieve (with JtR):
FSCrack is used as the base for the Sieve support when starting JtR. It is not a true Sieve implementation. Instead, the sieve module of John The Ripper is used, which can be selected when starting JtR.
Sieve (without JtR):
Only the last five characters of the password are cracked. Additionally, the password is cracked one character at a time in order to get better results.
The FSCrack tool comes with a version of JtR which has this support.
The FSCrack tool will start the JtR password cracking process automatically. When the user clicks on “Use crack” it will start the password cracking process.
FSCrack can also be used as a stand-alone tool. In this mode, it will display the found password on the screen.
How FSCrack is used
There are several requirements for using FSCrack.
The LDAP and Active Directory domain for which the password is being tested must be pre-defined when using FSCrack. This domain can be defined in one of three ways:
Using FSCrack using
The FSCrack GUI will allow you to:
Login to a remote system (over network) and attempt the unlocking of a system with a password.
Hash the password stored on a remote system (using configuration tools)
Generate configuration files
Generate password candidates
Generate password strength indicators
Find the longest possible password on a remote system (password complexity).
Test against your local system (for the login of a system).
If found, the GUI will present the most probable passwords, their average strength, their length and other indicators.
Check the number of iterations required (brute force).
Increase the password length limit for brute force attempts.
Notify you when the password for your system is found.
It is also possible to manually enter the same value as the username and then the hostname to connect to a remote system and find the password.
The configuration files for a remote system can be created with several values based on a user.
Passwords can be entered in the GUI or they can be generated automatically.
To generate a password, it is necessary to enter the username of the user.
The password for the remote system can be used in a brute force attack.
The framework has been tested with the following JtR versions:
Unix: Linux (2, 3 and 4), Mac OS X (10.4.5, 10.5 and 10.6), FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OpenSolaris, Darwin/MacPorts, Hurd, Solaris, SunOS
Windows: XP (SP2 and SP3), Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 (32 bit), Windows NT (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003 and 2004), Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server
Despite efforts to follow the standards of the standard C locale, FSCrack cannot display correctly all the locales supported by the C standard.
With version 22.214.171.124, FSCrack does not properly create configuration files for instances of Windows server 2008 R2 that do not support Kerberos 5.
With version 126.96.36.199, FSCrack ignores certain settings in some configuration files (usually the “typ”) that seem to be defined only to
