With VS 2005 it’s possible. You can create your own screen saver without any coding. I will explain the basic steps to create your screen saver in minutes. Of course you will get the complete help info from the VS itself. So lets start your RSS feed screen saver.
Open the VS 2005, File > New > Project
New project dialog box will appear. Select the Starter Kits > Screen Saver Starter Kit
Click ok. You can go ahead and change the code for your requirements or else you can keep the default. Build the project & go to the project BIN folder. You will find ssNews.scr file in it. Copy & Paste the file into the %SystemRoot%\system32\ folder.(e.g. WINNT\system32\) Your done!. Great VS has created screen saver for you in just seconds. Select the screen saver (News) from the Screen saver tab from the Display settings & change the RSS feed from the Screen Saver Settings. You can customize the background picture / RSS feed / shortcut keys... whatever since we got the source code. So try it & have fun.

Brute Force attacks are closely related to dictionary attacks. Brute force attack generates random user ids and passwords instead of reading them from a dictionary file.
You should be more concerned about dictionary attack than a brute force attack. A typical password dictionary has roughly 1,000,000 entries of common passwords. These include people’s names, common pet names, and ordinary words. Suppose an efficient dictionary attack can generate and analyze 10 guesses per second. If a user’s password is in the dictionary, the attack will succeed in at most 100,000 seconds or approximately 28 hours.
Now suppose a user has a six-character password that consists of upper-and lowercase letters, digits and 32 punctuation characters. There are 689,869,781,056 password combinations. A brute force attack would require 1,093 years on average to find the correct password. This comparison doesn’t mean brute force attacks aren’t a threat, but it does make it clear how much more dangerous dictionary attacks are. I will post a code sample about how to create a dictionary attack & how we can prevent from it. So stay tuned.
