New York, NY (PRWEB) October 20, 2009
The release of Microsoft Office 2007 signified the end to unsecure 40-bit encryption if the new, 2007 file format is chosen to save password-protected documents. Files produced by Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote 2007 are now benefiting from security of 128-bit strong encryption, provided that they are saved in corresponding Office 2007 formats. This strong encryption is resistant to all kinds of attacks except guessing the right password, which in turn can take significant time. Brute force attacks are not feasible provided that a long, complex password is chosen.
Microsoft Access 2007 is a notable exception from the trend. While employing 'enhanced' protection compared to older versions of Access, the updated MS Access 2007 is still using vastly outdated 40-bit cryptography. The choice of weak protection in MS Access 2007 allows for fast, guaranteed recovery of password-protected Access 2007 databases.
