A well worn topic I know, but why do so many brutes get stolen :?: Is it just a case of password strength, or is it some deliberate hack of someone's private account/information? Why would anyone bother, 'just' for a brute, or is it ridiculously easy to do for someone with the know-how :!::?:
The recent posts (in Spanish) about stolen brutes don't help me much

I think it is just a case of password strength. If password is just a common word, it is very easy to break with a dictionary attack. Actually in past I have seen some dictionary attack scripts for my brute.
And as far as I know, there is a brute force program too.
But these are easy to avoid by using a strong password..
