From reading more reports on this story I gather the program just cracks the encrypted backup file by the brute force method of systematically trying passwords until it gets to the one that works. RIM makes it relatively easy by not following the recommended practices designed to make brute force take a really, really, really long time and not but a couple of days.

If ABCAmber can defeat an encrypted backup file, I'm even more disappointed in RIM--not to mention it would make this Russian effort not news.
