Special Note to those looking to recover or crack America On-Line (AOL), Yahoo!, Hotmail or other email passwords: There is no known crack by which these passwords can be easily or effectively decrypted. AOL, Yahoo! and Hotmail all offer password recovery or reset services to legitimate account holders.  If you have lost or forgotten your password you should contact your provider.  Passwords can be stolen from legitimate users of these services through the use of trojans or key-loggers, however, you cannot use these methods to get your password back since they require the user to log in and therefore to know the password in advance.  Software to brute-force attack all possible passwords is very impractical and not likely to work.
