Breaking all the Password Managers?

August 13th, 2017 by admin in cracking, Life, News, Password Info

“Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery 3.40 now supports four major password manager apps including 1Password, KeePass, LastPass and Dashlane. The tool allows experts attacking a single master password and gaining access to the content of the encrypted vault, exposing any passwords, authentication credentials and other sensitive information (identity documents, credit card data etc.)”

The debate is on going about the legitimacy of the article many saying ElmcomSoft is spreading FUD and cheesy marketing. Open source project, Hashcat, has supported cracking of all the those password managers listed except Dashlane for a while now. The length of time to crack said password managers, if you are using a long enough password or passphrase, would make cracking not feasible. Especially a program such KeePass, the key transformation iteration count would greatly effect the speed of brute force attack.

In the comments of their article one of the developers of 1Password had this to say:

It would still take a number of months/days/years to crack most password managers, the use of password managers can increase overall security by relieving users from having to memorize a number of passwords. So keep on using yours as long as you have a good password/passphrase, keep your computer updated, and dont click shit, you shouldn’t be too worried anytime soon.

Jesus Saves

January 7th, 2017 by admin in Life

Except when he’s your password…

An analysis of passwords found in the 2009 breach of Rockyou — 32 million accounts — finds a large number of Biblical references (“jesus”,” “heaven”, “faith”, etc), including a number of Bible verse references (“john316”).

Another too-popular choice is “jesus,” or variants like “jesus777” and “jesus143.” Collectively, more than 21,000 people in the breach used the Son of God’s name as a password, making it the 30th most common password overall, a bit behind “tigger” (No. 22) and ahead of “football” (No. 45).

427 Milllion Stolen MySpace Passwords Selling For $2,800

May 27th, 2016 by admin in Life, News, Password Info

myspacehack
The same hacker who was selling the data of more than 164 million LinkedIn users last week now claims to have 360 million emails and passwords of MySpace users, which would be one of the largest leaks of passwords ever.
The passwords were originally hashed with the SHA1 algorithm, which is known to be weak and easy to crack, and they were not salted. “Salting” makes decrypting passwords exponentially harder when dealing with large numbers of passwords such as these.
Below are the top 55 passwords that LeakedSource cracked so far.
