Default Re: Elcomsoft breaks BB password by hacking encrypted media card

There's no disputing that getting the password from the media card gives you access to the device.

However, the 'hack' happened on the card, NOT the device. That's the difference. Either way, it's not good, but the device itself was not hacked, per say.

It's as if I locked my house, but left a key under the flower pot on the front door. A 'hack' would mean someone picked the lock to get in. However, because they found the key under the flowerpot the key was not 'hacked'. Still bad they got in the house, but how they got there is different.
