If every system administrator's nightmare is forgotten passwords, then this application is every admin's dream.
Installation of Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery is quick and simple. The clean tab-and-button interface is well-organized. This application cracks Word 97 and Word 2000 passwords, plus the weaker PGP, PDF, and Windows passwords. It takes just a couple of steps to crack most files.
The software can unleash agents that harness the power of multiple client machines to improve password-recovery time. Connecting over the network is through a user-specified port, to forestall interference with other applications. Your firewall may have to be set to allow information through the port. The help file is sparse, but the program operates cleanly with little user supervision. E-mail alerts are easy to implement, making this a start-it-and-forget-it piece of software.
The demo is limited to 10 clients and reveals only the first four characters of cracked passwords. This tool is geared for the system administrator of small- to medium-size companies. Home users looking to crack one or two passwords will find more appropriate software elsewhere.
Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery is a password recovery for forensic and government agencies, password recovery and data recovery services, and corporations.
