Elcomsoft und der §202c

Der IT-Branchenverband BITKOM (Bundesverband Informationswirtschaft, Telekommunikation und neue Medien e.V.) bestätigt in seinem „Leitfaden zum Umgang mit dem Hackerparagrafen“ Elcomsofts Auffassung von der Legalität von Passwortwiederherstellungstools und stuft solche Werkzeuge in seiner abschließenden Bewertung als „unbedenklich“ ein. „So wie jedermann in der analogen Welt einen Schlüsseldienst rufen kann, um wieder in seine Wohnung zu gelangen, stellt Elcomsoft Administratoren digitale Nachschlüssel zur Verfügung, mit denen sie wieder an die Daten ihres Unternehmens auf den unternehmenseigenen PCs gelangen können, sollte das Passwort einmal verloren sein“, so Vladimir Katalov, CEO von Elcomsoft. „Als offizieller Microsoft Certified Partner kooperieren wir beispielsweise auch mit Microsoft und erhalten deren Software vorab, um Anwendern unsere Lösungen rechtzeitig an die Hand geben zu können.“ Der komplette BITKOM-Leitfaden, kann hier abgerufen werden:
