PassGAN-AI-powered password cracking tool

Meet PassGAN, a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) that can autonomously learn the distribution of real passwords from actual password leaks. It can crack any kind of 7 chars password in <6 mins even if it contain symbols.

According to a study conducted by Home Security Heroes, an AI password cracker named PassGAN has demonstrated remarkable speed in cracking passwords. The AI was able to crack 51% of common passwords in a dataset of more than 15 million passwords in under a minute. PassGAN can crack passwords in less than half a minute for 65% of cases and less than an hour for 100% effectiveness. The study found that artificial intelligence is capable of compromising most common passwords rapidly, raising concerns about the security of passwords.

It's worth noting that the effectiveness of AI password crackers like PassGAN relies on whether the password in question has been leaked or breached from a database. In cases where passwords have been compromised, AI-powered tools can be 100% effective in cracking them.

This study sheds light on the alarming speed at which AI can crack passwords, emphasizing the importance of strong and unique password creation to enhance online security. As technology continues to advance, cybersecurity measures need to evolve to counter the growing threat of AI-powered attacks on passwords.
