#30 Karl, have you read what anyone else wrote?

We are saying that brute force attacks are NOT USED anymore by crackers.

Your figures are both incorrect and pointless. We KNOW this program does dictionary attacks, that is the whole point of what people are saying on here. You give a load of math trying to impress how brute force attacks will not work, but those figures are not only out of date, but irrelevant. It would be the dictionary attack that this program uses that would work with this program, especially if you substitute one of the larger publically-available dictionaries.

You made mistakes and are trying to cover yourself by raising irrelevant things, trying to put other words in people's mouths and fudging the valid points people have raised.

You have some knowledge, but are out of date and are applying it incorrectly. As someone said, go read Bruce's website as a good starter guide.

Your salt argument is wrong also, again you are out of date. Read this

Did you really read, what I wrote?

The program knows also dictionary attack – which is the only way to recover a password with some probability. There is a small dictionary file 6meg. Search for the really big ones in the I-Net. And if you find YOUR password in such a dictionary: DO NOT USE IT!

You are trying to cover over your mistakes

I can see you know something about the subject, but not enough. Read up on why crackers now almost never use brute-force attacks, but use dictionary attacks when needed.

Even if they did have to, I have read of 128-array graphics card clusters being used and they crunch through the numbers FAR faster than you quote.

Most people can not remember truly random characters and will not use password keeper programs. So dictionary attacks containing foreign words, words with replaced characters and the unique passwords from stolen password lists make it vastly more efficient as well.

That's not how accounts are usually penetrated. The hackers will usually break into a web site using something like SQL injection, export the whole encrypted password list, then work on it at home at full speed at their leisure.

I love reading comments on today's giveaway, even from those who have not bothered to try it before they post. But I'm curious...why are we still discussing password-cracking when today's software is a CD burning program?

I won't be trying Gold Burn as I'm quite happy with the burner I already have, but thanks anyway to SuperEZMedia Co and GOTD for the offer.

A word of thanks also to those who provided so much information on passwords/security, specially since TrueCrypt recently closed, due (I'm told) as it was no longer secure.
Guess which security program I was using!
Life gets tedious don't it?

#14 - "So, if the computer were trying to crack into an account of mine, the best it could do would be about one per 3 seconds (or ~1E+07 per year), not one billion per second (or ~3e+16 per year)."

Not to mention after 4-5 failed attempts most accounts will lock you out from 5 minutes to 24 hours before your can try again.

As for today's offering, I second Giovanni's recommendation of ImgBurn; I've used this for years, it's small, efficient, burns CDs and DVDs, create and burn isos, decent options, and a very simple interface.

"1 Video DVD Burning Guide"
tells in its pic: "... to make a DVD-Video disk you must use a DVD authoring tool."

Therefore at "3." they showed how to make a Video CD! Only once made a Video CD, about 10 years ago!

As #14 ric I can stay for "Gold Burn tasks" with Ashampoo Burning Studio 2014 never letting me down, same for prior versions.

#14 Mike H.

The latter calculation is one that the IT gurus use to try to bully us into changing our password often.

my simple example was about the millions or billions of years to crack a good password. This is a rather theoretical discussion - but a nice one for math freaks.

You are right, if a program hasn't a backdoor and if one doesn't use a password like "12345" or "master" a strong password of a good encryption program cannot be cracked.

If one uses a password like : "`8$}pYLjkXuM}Dyh)VcI" it is safe to eternity(*). The main problem remains the safe storage of that password.

(*) or with another nice comparison : the whole world does not produce enough energy to run the needed amount of computerhardware to crack this password in a reasonable amount of time.
Have a nice sunday!

Not very impressed - No "word" menus or even the options to have the pull-down ones (extremely important) because pictures DON'T always tell the SAME 1000 words to every user. 2nd - The hype "included" something about "ripping" & installed version (even with their fancy pics) did not offer even remotely what I was looking for & EXPECTED from the "ad" up above - sry GOTD - thumbs down - uninstalled NOW.

Karl; A comment on your math calculation.

The realiy of the situation is that your calculation relates to how many passwords a year could be generated, not how many could be tested.

To test a password, the computer would have to attempt to log into my account. If it were an internet account, banking account, credit card account, etc., this would probably take a minimum of 2 to 4 seconds (and most often longer).

So, if the computer were trying to crack into an account of mine, the best it could do would be about one per 3 seconds (or ~1E+07 per year), not one billion per second (or ~3e+16 per year).

The latter calculation is one that the IT gurus use to try to bully us into changing our password often.

Thanks to SuperEZMedia Co + GOTD.
Easily activated.
There is option for Blu Ray Data discs.

Seems like no option for Blu Ray Video discs.
Who cares? I don't use Blu Ray videos.

#1 Tape Klister - It does not change your search engine. It does not install additional software - only a desktop link to
freeaudiovideosoft.com that is easily deleted.

My ULead Burn.Now 1.5 SE failed repeatedly today even after fresh re-installs. As a result, tried several other disc burn software today.

Anyburn, BurnAware-Free-edition, Tinyburner, CDXPburner and a Nero Essentials that refused to install because my registry got traces of an uninstalled later Nero version.

In the end, Ashampoo Burning Studio 2014 (a giveaway) was the best.

Will try out this Gold Burn Version 6.5.6.

I happen to dislike Imgburn. Although many others sing its praises. Similarly for CCleaner which I dislike but others praise.
So as they say - Your Mileage May Vary.

This is the same software as RecordMax Studio. The only differences are lame.dll, the uninstaller and the text in "About". I did a binary compare.

Thank you for your addition.

This gives me the chance to go more into details. Rainbow tables are a perfect approach, when you search for a special hash value of the encrypted file. For example, Windows, where the windows keyword is stored as a hash value. A crack of the windows keyword can (because of its structure) be done within minutes or hours with hash tables - since years.

Look at http://project-rainbowcrack.com/table.htm

There is something completely different with encrypted files, which do not store the key as a (hash) value in their program. For example TrueCrypt, which uses exactly for this reason a salt (and iterations). In this case you cannot use rainbow tables. A former version of TrueCrypt could be compromised exactly for the use of a bad salt. It was version 6, if I remember correctly.

A user in the german GAOTD forum complained, that the yesterday's program could not recover a password consisting of three character and three numbers within 30 minutes. For the brute force cracker of yesterday that meant :

6 character (only small a..z, 0..9) = 1.544.804.416 possibilties - this mean weeks with a PC. If you want be be "safer" take a password, which start in the middle with k or j. Not with a or z (tricky systems count down)

(Checked their own site og course).

"The disc eraser is provided to reuse the rewritable discs."

Just one question, if the Gold Burn dev wouldn't mind answering it:

Will the Disc Eraser allow us to erase and reuse rewriteable disks THAT HAVE BEEN 'FINALIZED'?

(Because if it doesn't, it's of no use at all for erasing and reusing, since any DVD Recorder can erase and reuse discs that are not "Finalized.")

#3 Karl.

Your advice about passwords being so difficult to crack is VERY out of date. There are many articles on how easy it is now, like Bruce Schneier's.

https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2013/06/a_really_good_a.html

Use of rainbow tables, graphics cards processors and dictionaries that already contain words where letters have been substituted with numbers and characters AND contain all the different passwords from the databases of passwords that have been stolen in the past, make it MUCH easier than the numbers you give for brute force attacks.

Sorry, but the numbers you quote are wrong and misleading. It is more important than ever for people to pick unique passphrases. Read Bruce's writings, he is probably the world's leading expert on security and you will understand that math like you wrote are nothing like modern hackers do anymore.

I usually don't give a Giveaway of the Day a negative comment without trying it out first! But, these DVD creators/burners are a dime a dozen and GAOTD seems to always give them away! But, at least the rest of the soft-ware listed here below, are fairly good software to try! To me that is!

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A US company from Nevada with address&fax and a picture of a nice looking lady. The awards really exist. tested on two of them.

Wow, a GOLD! burn. The program is from December 2011 and digitally signed from a Chinese company : Tsingsoft Imagination Information Technology Co., Ltd ... making use of leftovers? No further company info in the I-Net.

The license agreement in the installation procedure is invalid - the "contract partner" is a not specified FAE limited trading...

Upon start a non resizable window opens, you have the choice to burn data, video or audio files and there is a tools button for erasing rewritable disks or handling .ISO.

This is quite simple - seems to work. I did not test every task, only writing data to a disk, which every program can handle (or should).

A simple tool, not needed by the one, who has already a burning program. Uninstalled via reboot.

I would not use even the platinum version of this gold tool.

--------------------------------------------
An addendum to the yesterday's software - -A little math to the password brute force cracking, questions about speed and how much kernels are used.

A computer, which can test 1 billion passwords per second, tests (60x60x24x365x1,000,000,000) 3,15
16 passwords per year. Wow!, what a number! If you bundle 1 million of these supercomputers (think of the energy costs!) you crack 3,15 22 passwords per year…
If you create a password from letters and numbers (a..z,A..Z,0..9) with a password length of 15 characters, you have a password with 2,82 26 possibilities. To crack these with the above mentioned supercomputerbundle, you’ll need roundabout 9 billion years. Longer passwords are only of hypothetical use…
So don’t worry about used kernel, processor speed or other minor details. A longer password CANNOT be cracked by brute force, not now and not in the next future by nobody.
