ElecomSoft has announced that it is using NVIDIA's latest generation Tesla compact supercomputer that uses NVIDIA GPUs for fast data processing to recover passwords via ElecomSoft Distributed Password Recovery.

According to Elecom, the service can recover a variety of system passwords including NTLM and Windows startup passwords, crack MD5 hashes, unlock password-encrypted documents from Office 97-2007, secure PDF files, and Unix or Oracle passwords.

ElecomSoft says that using the Tesla S1070 computing System for the task is up to 100 times faster for password recovery that a modern dual or quad-core CPU. The password recovery system is used by government agencies, data and password recovery services, and corporate users.
