Medusa is intended to be a speedy, massively parallel, modular, login
brute-forcer. The goal is to support as many services which allow remote
authentication as possible. The author considers following items as some of
the key features of this application:
* Thread-based parallel testing. Brute-force testing can be
performed against multiple hosts, users or passwords
* Flexible user input. Target information (host/user/password) can
be specified in a variety of ways. For example, each item can be
either a single entry or a file containing multiple entries.
Additionally, a combination file format allows the user to
refine their target listing.
* Modular design. Each service module exists as an
independent .mod file. This means that no modifications are
necessary to the core application in order to extend the
supported list of services for brute-forcing.
