Theaetetus: jfarkinB: Cozret: Misch: Ishidan: Accurate equine says what?Correct Horse Battery Staple (7, 5, 7, 6)Great against a brute force attack, not so good against a dictionary based attack.Really? Even if you know that the password is composed of four words from a dictionary, you're not going to get anywhere. Remember, you're still producing a single hash from it. Dictionary attacks based on single-word vocabulary (including simple variants like upper/lowercase, digit substitution, etc.) are marginally practical at present. Expanding to four-word sequences would raise the size of your dictionary to the fourth power. Not going to happen anytime soon.Actually, there's been some impressive cracking work using Wikipedia as a dictionary for source phrases.
