I was reading an article about password security and the author mentioned how hackers will sometimes use "brute force" and "dictionary" attacks. What are they and how do they differ?
Both methods attempt to guess the user's password by comparing series of characters against the known information. With a brute force attack, each and every combination of characters must be tried according to how many characters long the password is. The Dictionary attack streamlines this process by loading a pre-made list of common password user's might have. This guess and check method can cut the password guessing time down to minutes instead of hours. Source:
