    The l0pht is pleased to celebrate the biggest meeting of hacker minds in
    the known universe, DefCon, with the release of our PPTP sniffer for
    l0phtcrack. Ths PPTP sniffer will extract the challenge and encrypted
    password hashes travelling over the network as a PPTP user authenticates
    with the PPTP server. The password hashes can then be loaded into
    l0phtcrack for subsequest cracking. The sniffer only works under Solaris
    2.4+ at this time.
