Cracking BitLocker – Its no more safe now

Mar 2, 2010

One of the major features that, at least in Microsoft’s perspective, recommend Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise to customers is the ability to encrypt the hard drives via BitLocker, in order to safeguard data in the eventuality of computer theft, or access from unauthorized persons. Just a little over a month since the latest iteration of the Windows client has been made available for download, a third-party company revealed that it had produced the first commercially available crack for BitLocker Hard Drive Encryption. Passware indicates that customers in need of decrypting BitLocker Hard Drives in Windows 7, and with $795 to spare can turn to Passware Kit Forensic 9.5. According to Passware, version 9.5 of its password recovery, decryption, and evidence discovery software can “recover encryption keys for hard drives protected with BitLocker; recover passwords for PGP archives, virtual disks, and keyring files; and instantly resets Administrator passwords for Windows 7.”
