WinRAR Password Cracker
WinRAR Password Cracker provides you with yet another application for archive cracking purposes that you may want to use if you ever want to get to the contents of an encrypted RAR file.
Password cracking is not a new thing in the IT community and every time a new algorithm is being released, a group or several groups of users put all their efforts into trying to crack the code. This particular software category beholds some of the most popular applications ever made, such as John the Ripper or Cain and Abel.
They all present a multitude of cracking strategies and WinRAR Password Cracker also uses the ones that seem to be the best choice - brute force as well as dictionary. The brute-force attack, also know as exhaustive key search can be used against virtually any encrypted data.
The fact that brute-force attacks require many resources and exponentially more with each increasing key size alongside the one that a two hundred and fifty thousand dollars have been invested into a machine that can crack the DES (Data Encryption Standard) in a few days draws some lines around its capabilities.
On the other hand, the dictionary attack relies on “words” to be able to decrypt the data at hand. This type of attack tests every single entry of its dictionary upon the encrypted data file and it was created because many users choose simple words that can be found in the dictionary as their password string.
WinRAR Password Cracker delivers these two exact attacks to try on your given encrypted RAR archive file. No matter if the file belongs to you or not, WinRAR Password Cracker has only one goal and that is getting you in there so you can work with its contents.
All in all, WinRAR Password Cracker is just another application that cracks passwords. Unfortunately, it does not come packing anything other than the usual and its restriction is about only one specific file type. Come to think about it, if you look somewhere else, you may just find a similar software that doesn’t charge you for using it at its full capability spectrum.
