Attack with Simple Modification

Example 1:
Let's say you are searching for a password of 3 parts: 3 digits + word + 3 digits in reverse order, like "123pass321". This pattern is not uncommon.
Complexity for this attack without simple mod (3 chars "0..9" block + dictionary + 3 chars "0..9" block) is equal to 10^3 * (num. of words in the dictionary) * 10^3.
3 parts mixed attack:
1) <numbers> - 3 chars with charset "0..9".
2) <word> - dictionary part.
3) Simple Mod - part 1 copied in reverse.
Complexity for the modified version (1 block of 3 chars "0..9" + dictionary + Mod) is equal to just 10^3 * (num. of words in the dictionary). This search will finish 1000 times faster!
