hey all, I was wondering if there is a program for Linux that does the same functions as the remote password cracker Brutus, if this is a banned subject, feel free to close the thread, as I was not aware, please do not ban me for asking a simple question

I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume that this is a legit question and that I'm permitted to answer it.
Check out http://sectools.org/ . They will have something listed.

sectools.org is a legitimate website, password crackers are also legitime tools of the trade when it comes to security. Best way to secure something is to break in and see where the holes are.

I will also venture a suggestion. Try John the Ripper. Google for it.
Cracking Password programs are good to see if you have a weak password. Just don't use it to crack other people's passwords, unless you are authorised to do so as a matter of checking security.

seems like a contraversial subject here lol. it all depends on perspective, such tools can be used for bad, or for good. to allow such hosting/discussion/such public display of any tools whatsoever is the advertisement of the fact that they are meant to be used for your benefits. legally. therefore, thanks for answering my question.
