Re: PGP, TrueCrypt-encrypted files CRACKED by £300 tool
said by Blackbird:Agreed. They aren't cracking anything, just decrypting the information using a key that they've been able to extract.
I think that process really falls into the realm of ordinary "decryption", not "cracking"... unintentional or not.
It would be like finding a hidden spare key to unlock the door on someone's house, then claiming you've "picked" the lock. No, you've simply unlocked it using a key.
