Type of Attack
|Top Previous Next|
If a Password cannot be recovered instantly you must use one of the Attack Types. The following Attack Types are available in AOPR:
|•||Brute-Force Attack. This Attack will try all possible characters combinations in the specified Range. The Range is defined by Password Length and Brute-Force Range Options.|
|•||Brute-Force with Mask. This Attack is useful when you remeber a part of Password. For example if you remember that length of your password was 5 characters and password begins from "A", you can define the mask "A????" and save the time by trying 4 symbols instead of 5. A Password Mask must be defined to use this Attack.|
|•||Dictionary Attack. This Attack verifies the words stored in the specified Dictionary File. The dictionary is just a unicode text file with one word at a line; lines are separated with line breaks. You can set additional Dictionary Options for this Attack. A Dictionary Attack is much faster than Brute-Force so we recommend to run it first. AOPR has supplied with one small Dictionary File containing English words. Additional Dictionaries can be obtained on a CD with any Elcomsoft program.|
