Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker 3.0 adds a one-click tool to generate filtered wordlists from extracted passwords. These wordlists can significantly increase the chance of success when attacking strong passwords with password recovery tools. In addition, the tool is updated with support for the latest versions of popular Web browsers and email clients.

Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker receives a major update to improve compatibility with the latest versions of popular Web browsers and email clients, and adds support for a brand-new tool for improving the speed of brute-force attacks carried by Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery and similar tools.

Thanks to compatibility update, Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker 3.0 can now instantly extract cached passwords from current versions of popular browsers and email clients. This includes the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer, Opera and Yandex Browser, as well as Windows Mail (Windows 10), Microsoft Outlook and Thunderbird.

According to multiple researches, as many as 60 per cent of consumers reuse their passwords. On the other hand, some data formats (such as Microsoft Office 2013 or RAR5) are notorious for slowing down brute-force attacks to the point of making them unfeasible. Making use of the user’s cached passwords to attack protected documents and resources can tremendously increase success rate while significantly reducing attack time.

The updated Elcomsoft Internet Password Breaker can harvest users’ cached passwords with a single click, saving the result into a filtered text file that can be used as a custom wordlist with our password recovery tools. Using that dictionary with Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery and similar tools tremendously increases the chance of success when attacking files and resources with strong protection. Applying basic mutations to extracted passwords can boost success rates to 70 per cent of more.
