PRNewsWire Quotes CybercrimeTech

PRNewsWire, when writing about Passware's new LUKS GPU-assisted brute force cracker, referenced our work on LUKS password cracking with John the Ripper.

Just to be clear, prior tests with JoT were with multi-CPU - not GPU - enabled password generation. Also, we basically had only one thread attempting to access the LUKS device. Multi-threading may be able to increase practical guessing to a few a second, but probably still not as many as Passware's 300 guesses claim.

While their title is not exactly accurate, thanks for mentioning us!
