crypt is a great example of failure to adapt to technology changes. According to USENIX, in 1976, crypt could hash fewer than 4 passwords per second. Since attackers need to find the pre-image of a hash in order to invert it, this made the UNIX Team feel very comfortable about the strength of crypt. However, 20 years later, a fast computer with optimized software and hardware was capable of hashing 200,000 passwords per second using that function!
