Subject: Re: Break a virtual drive

Hi all,

While I'm happy that Dhiru's work might help Alexandre gain access to
this locked drive, this has nothing to do with JtR since there's no
password cracking involved - rather, there's a tool by Dhiru to reset
the password.  Thus, I think we should in fact end this thread here.
Dhiru, I expect you will reply to Alexandre off-list.

A general question we may discuss is whether we should possibly bundle
password reset tools and such along wth JtR (and then their discussion
would become on-topic here), or keep JtR as a password cracker only.

Thanks,

Alexander

I saw in Github.com that there is some discussions about this topic, for example "decrypt-msr-files-v2.py". Although I work with IT, I am not a developer anymore...so not familiar with new languages and technicks. As far as I could understand the code was written in python but I don't know this language. If it??s the case of installing a compilator and compile the code in my note I think I can do but I would apreciate some guidelines to do this job and finally access my external HD Samsung.

I thought to use a "brute force" software but have read that would need a dump archive and have no idea how to extract it from the HD software.
