A brute-force attack is an attempt to decrypt data by trying all possible passwords or keys.
Obfuscation makes these attacks less effective, and the strength of the encryption system is measured by how long it would take to mount an attack.
Passwords are particularly vulnerable to these attacks, as hackers can use computer algorithms to crack them.Back to Glossary
