New Tool Cracks Apple iWork Passwords

by Brian Donohue

The Russian software company, ElcomSoft, has developed a tool capable of recovering iWork passwords from Apple Numbers, Pages, and Keynote applications. According to ElcomSoft, 'Distributed Password Recovery' is the first commercially available tool with this capacity.

The tool works by performing a distributed, brute force dictionary attack against user-selectable passwords. Its just the latest effort by the Russian firm, which has

previously released tools for breaking the encryption used to protect data on Apple iPhone and RIM Blackberry devices. ElcomSoft claims this tool gives forensics experts the ability to access a vast array of encrypted evidence.
