Isnt Bandwith a factor also?
Dear Matt,

 

Thank you for a great article, with the coolest ever heading! :) My name is Mehmet, and I work at a Danish company called Secomea... We work with secure remote access for factories, and the likes... When you say that "With enough computing power, this is a process that can take only a few hours."? :) Is this really enough? I would guess that there are only so many re-tryes, before that connection is banned...? And what about the bandwith of the company that is being attacked in this way...? Isnt that a limiting factor also? :)
