The Hacker News

"THC-HYDRA is a very fast network logon cracker which support many different services. This tool is a proof of concept code, to give researchers and security consultants the possibility to show how easy it would be to gain unauthorized access from remote to a system. It was tested to compile cleanly on Linux, Windows/Cygwin, Solaris, FreeBSD and OSX."

This is the change log:
More license updates for the files for the debian guys
Fix for the configure script to correctly detect postgresql
Add checks for libssh v0.4 and support for ssh v1
Merge all latest crypto code in sasl files
Fix SVN compilation issue on openSUSE (tested with v11.3)
