Process Monitor v2.0:
This major update to Process Monitor adds real-time TCP and UDP
monitoring to its existing process, thread, DLL, file system and
registry monitoring. You can now see the TCP and UDP activity processes
performed, including the operation (e.g. connect, send, receive), local
and remote IP addresses and DNS names, and operation transfer lengths.
On Windows Vista, Process Monitor also collects thread stacks for

Pyrit takes a step ahead in attacking WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK,
the protocol that today de-facto protects public WIFI-airspace. The
project's goal is to estimate the real-world security provided by these
protocols. Pyrit does not provide binary files or wordlists and does
not encourage anyone to participate or engage in any harmful activity. This is a research project, not a cracking tool.
Pyrit's implementation allows to create massive databases,
pre-computing part of the WPA/WPA2-PSK authentication phase in a
space-time-tradeoff. The performance gain for real-world-attacks is in
the range of three orders of magnitude which urges for re-consideration
of the protocol's security. Exploiting the computational power of GPUs,
Pyrit is currently by far the most powerful attack against one of the world's most used security-protocols.
