It is really a brute force attack tool to obtain passwords.
A password cracker (as Crack, John the Ripper, ...) but oriented to work
over the network.
Hydra does password cracking against SMB (Windows), telnet, POP/IMAP, FTP, ...
It does dictionnary attacks as simple password generation algorithms.
I use that in my company to evaluate passwords quality when I am not
granted to crack the passwords directly from the box.
If I succeed, bad point for the box owner ;-)
