Symantec Pulls Plug on L0phtCrack

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 8:03 am

Symantec has quietly pulled the plug on sales of L0phtCrack, the venerable password auditing and recovery application.

The decision to discontinue support for L0phtCrack, also known as LC5, comes just months after Symantec stopped selling the application to customers outside the United States and Canada out of concerns that it violated cryptography export controls.

The ship date of L0phtCraft was Mar. 3, 2006 and Symantec will offer customer help until Dec. 16, 2006. The company will not be shipping any product code updates, enhancements or fixes to L0phtCraft after March 3.
