I for the latest version, 7.15.2672, on SnapFiles and downloaded it. However, upon unzipping it and running the main app, my system immediately treat the theSage.exe as malware and erased it. I securely wiped the ZIP file, downloaded it again and extracted it, only to see Bandizip say "Access is denied(5)" the main app was erased again. I'm glad I have version 6.10.1816 on my desktop and version 7.8.2644 on my portable drive. Neither give me any problems.

I tried the latest version of this dictionary/thesaurus portable software and still had problems with it. Only this time, I recorded my problem.

And yet, QTranslate v6.3.1.zip portable downloads without a hitch.

That'll teach you even thinking about using an installer...;-)

I never ever thought of using the installer, I was just testing the download link- the problem with the installer download doesn't appear for the first time. However both primary download links (installer & archive) work fine now.
Thanks to the developer for maintaining and improving the program and for not ruining the interface (so far) like many other freeware developers did recently.

Just teasing, of course...;-)

Strong Passwords Need Entropy v12.0 Updated

billon on 3 Feb 2017
  • 890KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 3 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by Midas

Strong Passwords Need Entropy is entropy calculator, password's strength and survivability checker and a strong password generator. The program analyzes your password and displays statistics about its length, character frequency, symbols, lowercase+uppercase letters, and digits. Based on this information, it calculates the password entropy, or the number of trials needed to find it and the time to crack the password.

Note that this analysis doesn't take into account "dictionary attacks" or use of words. For example, "ambassadorconjure" is long but not necessarily hard for a computer to guess.

This is an interesting application. Is there a way to run a list of passwords and get an output file of passwords and evaluations? If not here, can anyone recommend a portable app that does this?

webfork on 2015-06-13 19:07

br3: I haven't seen one that evaluates passwords in batches. I'd reach out to the developer on that point.
