All Windows Passwords at Risk and What to do about it

With the word out that a 25-GPU cluster can crack every standard Windows password in less than 6 hours, it may be time for us to consider this new Securematrix technology from Japan championed by Itara Nishimura of CSE Co., Ltd. His company makes a technology which uses a matrix of changing-numbers, allowing the user to use a known pattern to determine what their password will be for each login.

I interviewed him recently as part of a Cloud Expo West 2012 video interview series.

Can a supercomputer hack this sort of password as well? Possibly but it does seem to make the endeavor that much more difficult. Of course, a multifactor system coupled with typical passwords or the sort described in this post would be far more effective.
