New: Decryption and password recovery for FileVault2 non-system volumes
Passware Kit 13.7 decrypts FileVault2 non-system volumes, in addition to previously released decryption of FileVault2 system volumes. The FileVault2 password can be recovered without a wipekey file using regular brute-force attacks with NVIDIA and AMD GPU acceleration. Live memory analysis can also be used to decrypt FileVault2 non-system containers in a matter of minutes.
New: AMD GPU acceleration for TrueCrypt password recovery
Password recovery for TrueCrypt containers can now be accelerated on AMD GPU cards, in addition to NVIDIA. A single AMD Radeon 7850 provides a 112-times (!) acceleration, reaching over 50,000 passwords per second. Further acceleration is possible using more GPU cards and distributed computing.
New: Windows password reset on UEFI systems
Password recovery for Windows Administrators can now be flawlessly launched on UEFI-boot systems. It is no longer required to adjust BIOS settings to make the computer boot from the Windows password reset CD or USB disk.
New: Recovery of corrupted Windows Desktop Search databases
Passware Kit Forensic includes Search Index Examiner, which extracts data from Windows Desktop Search databases. Now the extraction is possible even from damaged databases thanks to the built-in recovery option.
New: Performance logs for distributed password recovery
It has become easier to troubleshoot distibuted password recovery processes, as Passware Kit acquires detailed logs from both the Server and the Agents and saves them into a single archive. This archive can be submitted to Passware Support for analysis.
