I downloaded a torrent file in .rar extension. It has a password. Which password cracking software would you recommend that can crack it very fast?
Its amazing that you ask us for help to crack your ilegal downloads, ever thought of buying the software?
Alan it's not the problem of buying... it's the availability of products in developing countries specifically in ASIA and specially in country like PAKISTAN. Because our talent, needs and education is what we learn ourselves not what we get here. So let's just say if GOOGLE's office been here we won't have to go EUROPE to access it's office. Or if PAYPAL or other major businesses of the world were working here we don't have to rely on TORRENTS and PIRACY. Anyway thanks for your help :)
we are not thieves...
You can't! Even if you download softwares like Rar password cracker (or something like that...), it will not work, or it might, but it would need so much time..
You have to consider, if you don't know anything about the password, you have to select letters (including capital ones), numbers, symbols.. And if you have a super powerful computer, it might take months, and it's a process that you can't be sure of the result!
its a public file, i don't think the password would be too strong.
Cant be done. tried it, tried software that claimed to do it. Nothing works for it.
If it is a torrent go back to were you downloaded it from then read the comments sometime they are posted there, sometimes they are just the same name as were you downloaded it from. Learn a lesson from this and stay away from Winrar files or read the comments before downloading.
thanks and i always do.. infact i never download any torrent unless i have read people comments on it. :)
use the following software embedded in backtrack linux distros : fcrackzip & cRARk
youtube for the tutorial ;)
the thing is, if you dnt know the original Password range and starting characters, then it would be hard to crack.. it would take ages to do a brute force attack... the best option is to go to the download location and read the website to get the password.
it wasn't there.. thats the problem :(
From my points of view, you should not crack a winrar file that is not owned by you.
But maybe it is legal in your country, who knows?
I just answered another similar question on makeusof.com:
I metioned a free winrar password cracker, you can try and see if it works.
