The file is a .dmg Pretty much everything I am reading says it is just about impossible to retrieve the info without the password. But I thought wouldn't hurt to throw it out here to see if anyone knew of a way.simie said:What type of file is it?
SC68Cal said:was it an actual word that you used to create the password? or was it a string of letters and numbers.
You can probably use a dictionary attack and crack it open.
Alrighty.. apparently I was wrong, sue me, technically you can dick a .dmg.SC68Cal said:I just did it two minutes ago on an AES-128 test image. Weak password to generate the hash, cracked in like less than a minute. You don't know jack.
I just made a .dmg, created the password hash using "test" on my Macbook Pro and it cracked that thing in about a minute. Granted, it's a pretty terrible "real-world" test. But let's face it. Your average computer user has about enough self-sufficiency to wipe their own butt.yellow said:Alrighty.. apparently I was wrong, sue me, technically you can dick a .dmg.
But I'm curious, how WEAK a password did you use?
Because it's still thrashing on the password "weak" and it's been 23 minutes. Maybe I'll try a 2 character password.
There isn't because it's not a plain text dictionary.. however I pulled a plain text dictionary off the web for my testing above.SC68Cal said:I suspect that the dictionary provided with MacKrack is not the most comprehensive....
Wish there was a way to tie in the dictionary that is part of OS X into MacKrack.
