passware 9.x

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Hello everyone!

Recently I found reports about a software called Passware which can read keys of popular security software like BitLocker, Truecrypt, PGP and GPG.
Site says:
Passware 9.5 can also recover passwords for PGP archives, virtual disks, and keyring files (both PGP and GnuPG), and instantly reset Administrator passwords for Windows 7 with a bootable CD or flash drive.
Retrieving clear text keys from memory dumps isn't new, so my interest is to know if a strategy is in place to make an end to this. How about a patch for GPG not to store its keys in RAM Chips any more?

Kind regards
