Tell me if I'm wrong.
I just found a neat way to encrypt a file in Ubuntu 10.04.
I right click on a file and select the Encrypt option. The program
prompts me to "Choose Recipient" so I choose myself on the list. Then it
prompts me to enter my passphrase.
Once all that's done I hit enter and it adds .pgp to the end of whatever
file just encrypted. The same basic method is used to Sign the file.
Does it sound as though what I said is correct and that the file I wanted to encrypt was indeed encrypted?
Can anyone crack my files without the passphrase? I'm sure it depends
on the complexity and length of the passphrase.
