The best way to protect against these attacks is to use a different "salt" for each password put into the database if you are using the "crypt" function. For instance, you could encrypt a pass and use the username as the salt. This way, an attacker would need to rebuild his dictionary for each password he wants to crack, making it a very hard task.
