A Russian security company recently unviled a tool designed to crack BlackBerry device passwords.

"Elcomsoft said it can recover a seven-character password in less than an hour if the password is all lower-case or all capital letters," writes Computerworld's Jeremy Kirk. "The software does not need access to the actual BlackBerry device but just the encrypted media card."

"The new feature is wrapped into Elcomsoft's Phone Password Breaker," Kirk writes.
