Default Elcomsoft breaks BB password by hacking encrypted media card

Read this very carefully...

ElcomSoft Recovers BlackBerry Device Passwords

It doesn't say they can hack your BB password directly from the device, but rather if your media card is encrypted using the device password. They are hacking the media card, NOT the device.

Simple answer - either don't encrypt your media card or encrypt it another way, such as device key + device password.

No need to panic. BB has not been hacked.
