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

I'm not getting into calling people names or questioning where the fault lies. This sounds like a real problem.

Suppose someone chooses for their password a short, same case, letters-only password - which is fairly typical if you have to enter it every time you want to use your BB.

Anyone finding (or otherwise acquiring) the device can use this software to get into your blackberry, your personal info, and - by extension, I guess - your connection to whatever is available through your BES.

Again, this sounds like a real problem. First and foremost, everyone should either remove encryption from their media card, or change a password to one that's quite annoying - and strong.

The finger-pointing and name-calling can wait.
