Crack Rar, 7z, and zip files with RarCrack in Ubuntu Linux

April 16, 2008 – 8:09 AM

Ever run into the problem where you created a password protected zip/rar file and you forgot the password or accidentally deleted it? Or just dont know the password at all? Well I have come across a nice solution for cracking zip/rar files. Its called rarcrack, If you forget your password for compressed archive (rar, 7z, zip), this program is the solution.

This program uses bruteforce algorithm to find correct password. You can specify which characters will be used in password generations.

  2. rarcrack is a joke.

    The developer pooched the printf function such that the only way it runs is with the “–type rar” switch (it cannot detect normally), and the password generated is NEVER correct. I created an RAR with a password to see. It NEVER found the password, but dutifully spat out a password and called it good.

    That is a two hour span I’ll never get back.
