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

I don't encrypt my card (there's nothing sensitive on it) and I have no idea whether his test is accurately reported. However, if the OS encrypts files one by one rather than encrypting the entire card, it seems plausible the software would only need a single file to decrypt and deduce the password.


Regardless of who may read this board, RIM does need to address it, and soon. It's a major vulnerability.

If I were responsible for a BES installation and keeping corporate data safe, I'd be quite worried.
