Free rainbow tables looking for new adminlee (676254) writes "After almost three years online, the admin of Free Rainbow Tables has decided to call it a day, citing a lack of time to keep it running (I'm sure that you all know a rainbow table is essentially a giant list of precomputed hashes). This is a shame, as the site is a useful resource for those occasions when you really need an existing password exposing rather than simply changing it; being a Windows admin, this site has come in very handy in the past! The currently computed tables weigh in at well over half a terabyte, are available as torrents from the site, or from a couple of mirrors (and alternatives are available). As well as being useful in that you can download your own copies of the tables, the site also has a downloadable client that'll put your idle cycles to work computing ever-greater tables, and a space-saving format for storing the tables. It's not all bad news though — he is willing to hand over source code if you wish to take over, though I suspect hosting is not included!"
