Recovery of Android Numeric PINs and Passwords
We've just written a follow up to our blog about Android pattern locks, this time describing a method for recovering numeric PINs and alphanumeric passwords from Android devices.
There's also a link to the scripts at the bottom of the post
Wow, brilliant article.
It's nice to see a company like CCL putting something back out there for the community to use!
I have been working in the Android field for the last few months as part of a dissertation, and was about to start research into lock screen recovery, this seems like a good technique to investigate a bit further.
Would be interesting to potentially pipe the brute force processing via something similar to NVIDIA CUDA, the increased attempts/sec provided by a GPU might make this even more viable with longer passwords.
Fantastic read, thank you Alex.
Thanks for the kind words guys.
The CUDA idea is an interesting one, I've had a quick dig around and it looks like there's a pretty well supported CUDA bindings library for Python so it may well be possible - I'll have to have a play!
