ELCOMSOFT DISTRIBUTED PASSWORD RECOVERY ADDS DICTIONARY ATTACKS.
The newly added dictionary attack allows unlocking information protected with strong passwords faster. Visa EU Password Selection Survey and ElcomSoft Survey suggest that 40 to 78 per cent of passwords are susceptible to dictionary attacks. Dictionary attack can recover the majority of passwords used by general public, and up to 40 per cent of passwords employed in corporate environments. By adding the dictionary attack, ElcomSoft reduces time required to access information protected with strong encryption algorithms and long, complex passwords.
Computer users tend to use the same password to protect various types of information. Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery stores all passwords it discovers to a separate dictionary. The dictionary of discovered passwords is being used to recover other documents protected with the same password. By attacking the weakest link, ElcomSoft dramatically decreases time required to recover strong encryption algorithms.
