First commercial tool to crack BitLocker arrives

Update

 

As pointed out in the comments, this isn't exactly a "crack" for BitLocker. Like most similar digital forensics analysis software, Passware Kit Forensic requires access to a physical memory image file of the target computer before it can extract all the encryption keys for a BitLocker disk. If a forensics analyst or thief has physical access to a running system, it is possible to take advantage of the fact that the contents are in the computer's memory. Every drive encryption program has the same issue.

 

Anyone using Bitlocker yet?
