RAR password cracker

Postby buscuitboy » Thu Aug 04, 2011 7:56 am

Lately, I have been getting some RAR files via newsgroups/usenet, but when I try to assemble and/or extract them, I get asked for a password. Can anybody recommend a good freeware password cracker for RAR files?

If a file needs a password then it is most likely a fake.

Yea, that is something else I was wondering about too & figured it was possible they were not the real deal and/or what they are listing them as. Just thought I would try if possible.

There are rar crackers but they are brute force crackers.
I.e. they just roll though every letter and number in the alphabet.

so your chance of actually being able to get access to the file is between slim and none.

Those files are fake they are always fake..
it's just not worth your time.

Actually, not all password-protected archives are fake. That said, the password is usually listed on some forum/site at which the upload was announced. Simply Google "ArchiveName password" and you might come up with useful results.

i think the passwords are used to prevent posters from being busted for piracy because in the usa we have rights that makes it that you can not be charged with something without evidence.

also the legal departments of the various software developers like adobe cant make a case.

There are forums like the Russian one called rusenet.org where you can get all the passwords for the hundreds of files they upload. Then there are the bogus files with the pretend passwords that lead you to a site called freedownloads.nl or something like that. The legit sites include their name in the post.
