comment Is there any defense against Brute-Force done on a local encrypted file?
@schroeder Well of course, there's a statistical probability that you could crack the password in about half of that time. There is also always the possibility that the cracker gets lucky and manages to find the correct password quickly. In the end, it comes down to password length. The longer the password, the less chance of anybody getting lucky.

I would like to point out that the password i mentioned above would take forever to crack. If you were to take 1 billion of my computers and try to crack the password, it would take 1,717,524,100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years.
