Item

Description Blackthorn is a classic, really one of the oldest ones in the book. It's named after the military project that laid the foundation for the modern Net, including hacking and neural recordings.

This is a recent version. A modern code base would probably provide more options, but Blackthorn definitely has the fine grain control if you're interested in investing the time.
Type Program
Requires 2 Processor
Tools Password Guesser, Corrupt Datastream, Blackthorn
