    For a password that long it's going to take quite a while to brute force the password. You'll definitely need to go with gpu cracking to even have a chance I'd bet. The only one I know of is cRARk which uses OpenCL.

    Is this a kind of joke? Nobody uses passwords 50 characters long. My bank account only allows up to 8 characters, which are quite sufficient if well chosen. And any non-dictionary password of 8 or more characters is virtually uncrackable by standard methods and tools. Like LNCPapa said, you’d need special hacking skills. And this board does not condone hacking.
