MOSCOW, August 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. updates Elcomsoft Phone Breaker, the company's mobile forensic tool for logical and over-the-air acquisition of mobile devices. Version 4.10 decrypts passwords stored in 1Password containers and becomes an industry first tool to instantly unlock BlackBerry Password Keeper for BlackBerry 10. The tool integrates the extraction of iCloud authentication tokens into the user interface.

Instantly Breaking BlackBerry Password Keeper 

With this release, ElcomSoft targets encrypted containers created by two popular password managers, BlackBerry Password Keeper for BlackBerry 10 and 1Password.

BlackBerry Password Keeper is a native password manager for BlackBerry 10. The tool uses an escrow key to protect the password container. Elcomsoft Phone Breaker can obtain the escrow key and instantly decrypt BlackBerry Password Keeper containers extracted from BlackBerry 10 backups. Note that BlackBerry 10 backups themselves are also protected and must be decrypted with Elcomsoft Phone Breaker prior to targeting BlackBerry Password Keeper.

Decrypting 1Password Containers 

1Password is a popular cross-platform tool for storing and synchronizing passwords between devices running Mac OS, Windows, Android and iOS. 1Password containers are protected with a user-defined master password. Elcomsoft Phone Breaker can attack master passwords protecting 1Password containers retrieved from Dropbox, iTunes, or iCloud backups.

Integrated iCloud Token Extraction 

The ability to download iOS cloud backups and access iCloud data without knowing the suspect's Apple ID and password has been extremely popular with forensic customers. The new build integrates the token extraction functionality straight into the user interface instead of using command-line tools.
