A password list is also known as a dictionary, and using one is known as a dictionary attack.  Brute force attacks iterate through every possible option:

aaa
aba
aca
ada
aea

...etc etc using whichever rules you specify whether it be alpha only, alphanumeric, alphanumeric with special characters.

No, if you are using pre-compiled word lists, then it is a dictionary attack.  A true brute-force will just start slamming characters through, exhausting all possibilities along the way.

I believe Mr. Razor is correct on this one.

On the wordlist note, has anyone used/purchased this one before?
