    sudo apt-cache search grub

    yes, a list of packages all containing the word Grub will appear with a short description of each and once you have found the package you want then type this:

    sudo apt-get install [packagename]

    for multiple packages:

    sudo apt-get install [package name] [package name] [package name] and so on...

    all without the [ ].

    If apt does not work then use yum instead of apt.

    you can even type:

    sudo apt-cache search cracker

    or something like that and you will find a few cracking tools, like jtr, medussa and pdfcrack.
