NTLM 100 Percent Broken Using Hashes Derived from Captures

uCallHimDrJ0NES (2546640) writes "Security researcher Mark Gamache has used Moxie Marlinspike's Cloudcracker to derive hashes from captured NTLM handshakes, resulting in successful pass-the-hash attacks. It's been going on for a long time, probably, but this is the first time a "white hat" has researched and exposed the how-to details for us all to enjoy. Microsoft has posted a little guidance for those who need to turn off NTLM: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2793313. Have fun explaining your new security project to your management, server admins!"
