Name        : medusa
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 2.1
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://www.foofus.net/jmk/medusa/medusa.html
Summary     : Parallel brute forcing password cracker
Description :
Medusa is a speedy, massively parallel, modular,
login brute-forcer for network services.
Some of the key features of Medusa are:

    * Thread-based parallel testing. Brute-force
      testing can be performed against multiple hosts,
      users or passwords concurrently.
    * Flexible user input. Target information
      (host/user/password) can be specified in a variety of ways.
      For example, each item can be either a single
      entry or a file containing multiple entries.
      Additionally, a combination file format allows
      the user to refine their target listing.
    * Modular design. Each service module exists
      as an independent .mod file.
      This means that no modifications are necessary
      to the core application in order to extend
      the supported list of services for brute-forcing.
