[Dshield] Password Cracking Software

Personally, I use JtR for all my password cracking needs.  Load up the 
password files on a dedicated machine (or three) and use a combination 
of techniques against the passwords.  I don't know of a package that 
will avoid AV (or is trusted by AV vendors) by default, but it's a good 
idea to separate the cracking machine from the rest of the world in any 
case.  The more processes you can turn off, the more cycles you'll have 
for password cracking.

Perhaps boot an isolated machine from a LiveDC and let it rock?
