Comments on KRyLack Password Recovery 2.73.02

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Thought this would be a nice app, but it is ridiculously slow. On my super fast system, it managed 9 password attempts per second. Other programs like this I've tried got around 5000 per second. This one is really a loser. Sorry.

PS- A good password of just 5 digits could take weeks to crack.

Lots of similar FREEWAREs are available.

All have similar features. The only special in this is that it is being priced $19.95 .

I have a challenge for this software.
Tripod.com users can download the backup of their tripod site as an archive and it is password protected. How long will this software take to find its password?

This software or any similar software (password recoverry software) are really useful if you know that the password contains somany characters, you have confused among different passwords, you have forgotten last or in between 2 or 3 characters of the password etc..

Kindly use such software ethically.

GAOTD must have mentioned as "Strictly for Personal and Ethical use Only".

For all of you that are concerned about Russian and Chinese hackers distributing trojan or dialer laden software, you have more to worry about than you thought. Did you know some of the top hackers are Israeli? Indian? Filipino? Cybercrime is a worldwide phenomena.

I use XP Home, and I can see how this would be useful when you archived long forgotten files and ran across them again. I found the interface to be easy to use. I did 2 tests used an easy 6 char password brute-force and mask easily got the password recovered. Then used a 9 char with symbols, upper and lowercase, numbers. Brute force and Mask both took some time ( I supplied 4 chars for Mask). The passwords run attempts at about 3100-3400 per second according to the interface. Once the password is recovered the options were nice .... you can just save the password, drop it to your clipboard, or put it in a text file for later viewing.

Installed OK on my XP system as a replacement for the earlier version offered here.

Installed without problems/complaints, but did NOT run OK on my Windows ME (Millenium) system.

The previous version that was installed worked OK on the ME system, but I uninstalled it to replace and try out this newer version. That was a mistake!

This occurred even though I closed down all unnecessary tasks to reduce the system to the bare minimum of running processes (no antivirus, no spybot, etc).

The two error window messages read as follows:

(TITLE) Desktop

(ICON) (red circle with white "X")

(MESSAGE) A device attached to the system is not functioning



(TITLE) Error Starting Program

(ICON) (yellow triangle, black "!")

(MESSAGE) The C:\PROGRAM FILES\KRYLACK PASSWORD RECOVERY\KLPASSREC.EXE file expects a newer version of Windows. Upgrade your Windows version.


Not a very friendly message. I would have thought the installer would have performed this check first. It doesn't seem to be Win 98/ME compatible despite the misleading claim on this page.

Wish I still had the older one working... but at least I have the newer one on the other machine! I suppose I should say "thanks!"...

#16 - you know, you may be absolutely right... unfortunately, since you're not part of the solution - you're part of the problem....so really, you're just another whining A-hole, and just as stupid as the clueless newbies who post here about the screensavers and DVD rippers.

Here's a suggestion...if you want a better grade of "Free" - why don't YOU jump in and help the GOTD team cut some deals and find some better stuff to give away? YOu won't, because #1 that would require effort and #2 you'd rather piss and moan than get involved. Coward. Loser.

GOTD is giving out software designed to break the password someone has on their program. If you have obtained a password protected .rar or .zip file that you do not have the password for, perhaps it is because you were not meant to open that program.

Perhaps you STOLE that file from the owner.

This, on top of not one but TWO programs this past week containing spyware. Wow.

I suppose tomorrow they will simply offer a virus to infect all our systems?

Activated and installed ok on Vista Basic laptop with a minor error on first run only, Experimentaly I created a zip archive using zip encryption with a simple numeric password and set this off brute forcing the achive.... I could not believe how slow this is compared to the likes of ARCHPR from elcomsoft, bearing in mind last time I trialed the elcomsoft program I was using an older windows 98 system running an Athlon XP3400+ with a Gig of RAM. I got between 7000 to 10000 times as many zip password attempts per second than this one I have used today on this Sempron 3400+ laptop with 2Gig RAM.

There is something fundimentally wrong with how the passwords are being tested in program for it to be using all available CPU time and still managing such poor performance. I do not know if it managed to find the simple numeric password or not because when I just switched back to its window I was greeted with a "KRyLack Password Recovery has stopped working" box.

I just found out one of the reasons this so so slow, using sysinternals procmon.exe I observed during the brute force attack it re-reads the original encrypted zip file from the file system each password attempt! That is insane! Work on the file directly from a memory array of data not from the agonisingly slow file system!

I saw some earlier comments where people had password-protected a zip file, tried to crack it, and KRyLack said the file type was unrecognized. So I ran my own test. KRyLack doesn't really do anything useful, does it? I mean, even when you know the password and try to give it hints, it still fails. Hard.

I created a zip file using IZArc. Several different encryption methods were available -- I chose the PKWare 2.0 method. (For you who don't know, PKWare is the company that invented the ZIP archive, and this method is probably the oldest, and should be the most compatible.) I set the password as "test" with no punctuation, no numbers, no capitalization, nothing too difficult. I ran a brute-force crack using KRyLack's default options. KRyLack made it all the way through its sequence of 4 letter Ts, quietly skipping the word "test," and I stopped the process.

I then specified only a-z, no caps, no numerals, no symbols, minimum length 4 characters, start-at "ssss" and tried again. Yet again, KRyLack obliviously parsed all permutations of four-letter strings beginning with a t, and merrily tripped into the u combos.

Pssh. You'll have more luck cracking zip files by guessing.

This app doesn't happen to be for me, so I DIDN'T VOTE. I don't often download software here, but I DO come to read the comments. I've had lots of questions answered, and gotten some great tips. I've also occasionally been pointed in the direction of great software that I did need. Occasionally I find something here that wows me. And, like some other folks, I really enjoy reading the grammatically imperfect, error laden whines, snivels and accusations. They provide an element of comedy. GAOTD, you just keep doing what you're doing. There are many of us who appreciate the effort, and the venue for sharing ideas - and the occasional software gem. By the way, yes, I know there are forums, and yes, I know how to use them. It happens that this venue is more widely read.

re: #16 I take youy comments as I have been visiting this site since about March/April and i still have not found anything of real use to me.
I'm still hoping for that "rare gem" to be put up.

the other issue i have is if there is a fault with the software at a later date or if you have to do a O/S reinstall you have no option but to buy the software, but i suppose thats just all part of the fun of using a PC.

Isn't multithreaded (can only use one cpu). If this program was multithreaded it would be a better use of my time. Still, it can do brute and has an extensive dictionary. Great for those sitting at 3+ ghz single/double core.

#22, #67 and #78 make good points. Maybe it's time that, as a matter of principle, we stopped supporting software from:

a) any region of the world with a known reputation for cyber-criminal activity, such as Russia and Eastern Europe.

b) any country which uses its military might to bully its neighbours, such as Russia and China.

c) any country with a bad human rights record, such as China and countless others.

I very much appreciate the effort done to present us free software every day which you'd normally need to pay for. It can't be easy.

But come on people!

If I look at the two other software products KRyLack offers which really are readily available for free (e.g. volid to modify the volume 'serial number') for which KRyLack also asks 15 USD and after reading some of the comments here then I'm not confident that it's worth more than you 'pay' for today!

#22 is right

Most software that goes through this site is Russian or Chinese. Does no one that makes software in western Europe or the U.S.that offer any software.

Seems odd. In the previous couple weeks anytime I have had the audacity to mention these countries I have been censored.

If I don't want the software I know I don't have to download it but to not even be able to comment on it's origin is well stupid.

I mean lots of people think GOTD is from mainland U.S. It is not but that is no big deal. It provides and interesting site for many.

Just food for thought.

Are there other outlets for vendors to use? I think this is a fabulous marketing vehicle, and one that actually works at getting small software houses' software out there.

Could it be better? Probably. But what goes into running the site and the logistics of the registration sw, etc.? Contracts? I dunno, but I'll bet it isn't automatic. And really, it probably only pays the adsense revenue. The managers may have day jobs, and this is just a side thing.

Maybe it is time for GAOTD to reach out to the community and see what the community itself (us) can do to make it better?

GAOTD, you listening? You may find the users here willing to help out!

#79: I agree, and would request that "Off-Topic" be added as an option. A lot of times, I've seen negative reviews of the product being dinged as "Not Useful" just as much as off-topic notes. So, to see the problems, you'll still have to wade through flames and off-topic complaints.

Also, I don't understand why "other language" dictionaries would be necessary, because wouldn't that be considered the same as a random string of characters in the user's base language? (brute force)
I can understand a different character set (like russian, french, arabic, etc)? Just wondering.

Total agreement with "Fade", #16. Virtually anything offered by
GAOD is available somewhere on the web. And, I have found 2 trojans
in programs I downloaded from GAOD before I realized there are other
options available to acquire "free" software that is not fluff and actually useful. This latest "password finder" is flawed and a poor choice to install. Ques for all who installed....How do you know what might occur when or after the program locates the lost? password? Are you absolutely, positively sure it doesn't get sent
somewhere? Too bad source code isn't included...I would advise
avoiding this one. The Ghost

I must partially agree with Number #16

There are good pieces of software offered here about 1-2 time a month. Unfortionaltly, the titles truely wanted, those with a 80% or higher approval rateing, are just relistings of popular past offerings.

The only good thing about this is you will be able to download the most recent version of the repeat product.

Bottom line: Giveaway of the day (GAOTD) is not what is used to be a year and half ago. They set the bar really high at that time. Since then the crew just seems to be on vacation. Hell, I think we had four days just this month with no offering at all.

Suggestion: Take the "Did you find this comment useful?" rankings and sort the comments on this page based on them. That way we would see the most relevant (as voted by the users) comments at the top, first.

Many comments are completely off topic, rude, or just flames back and forth-none of which might help someone make an actual decision as to whether to try the software offered.

Rather than have us sort through all the noise for the jewels, why not use these rankings (what else are they used for, after all?) productively?

Just a thought...

In response to the comment from no.67 - you're comments are correct. Having done business and traveled all of Russia and the Baltics - I can only say - beware. There are some really good coders - and - a bit to good. I can't speak for todays offering - but, I just don't download software from the Ukraine, Baltics are other areas of what was or is Russia. Besides - this is bad form today with what is happening in Georgia.

Just a note. If you think you have a good password, some password crackers are amazingly fast in some areas.

"Rainbow Hash Cracking

The multi-platform password cracker Ophcrack is incredibly fast. How fast? It can crack the password "Fgpyyih804423" in 160 seconds. Most people would consider that password fairly secure. The Microsoft password strength checker rates it "strong". The Geekwisdom password strength meter rates it "mediocre"."

#18 Fubar makes several good points about password protecting achieves. I too recall problems with password protection and "zip" files. The "Stuffit" program might have been the first program to claim it fixed the issue. I have the data on an old hard drive - but because of all of the negative comments on today's offering it does not seem worth the trouble to drag out the box and hunt for it.

I think that the password problem was fixed so long ago that none of the achieve authors even mention it any more. Fubar has a good memory and he might be able to confirm that the problem was limited to "zip" achieves and the "pkzip" version (the author of all of my zip archive programs until "Stuffit 9" was released.

My reason for staying with a single source for achieve programs is the incidence of corrupted achieve files. Early zip achieves were easily corrupted - so much so that I probably had to use the zip achieve repair utility (pkzipfix)10% of the time. I still find corrupt zip files but they are always files that I have downloaded and have no idea what program was used to produce the achieve. I never get a corrupt file when I use Stuffit, but I have found that Stuffit can not reliably fix corrupt files assembled by another program.

I would hate to spend time trying to crack a password on a corrupt file. Fortunately a file is reported as being corrupt at the time you first try to expand it.

#12, Shawn, makes a good point on a achieve that has been password protected by a virus. I would think that the virus would use a password that is very difficult to crack.

I never password protect an achieve nor do I have a single achieve of any important file.

I am going to keep a copy of today's program and put it in a "just in case" category in an unachieved format.

To 16;

You and your type of complainers are the ones who need to go away and NEVER come back or vote or comment again. If you had reasonable experience with some freeware - you would know. (See my post above hopefully #62).

Comments like yours are going to hurt GAoTD and everyone who visits here because software developers will become more reluctant to offer their full version app's for free. One software developer stated here he would never again offer us anything because of the complaining and bitching, and negative comments.

I don't work for free and the software offered here is $0 profit.

I have purchased a suite of programs that I found here. I read the reviews and tried the software since these are not the usual 15 to 30 day trial or cripple-ware versions.

Keep up the good work GAoTD and please begin to delete those kinds of crap comments so those who appreciate everyone's hard work and contributions will continue.

Let me respectfully make a couple of observations on previous posts. #22-Richard Hill makes a comment on trusting software from a non-democratic country that should give one pause. I'm not trying to be too alarmist, since these guys are probably just average people trying to make a living, but, with any software you should screen carefully, including watching for unexpected "dialing". I'm not ignoring #32-No Mainpupil, but, again respectfully, Ukraine's government is not exactly known for it's ethics. They've had at least one election that didn't pass international scrutiny, and probably poisoned the opposition leader, Yushchenko, in 2004. There even have been many credible recent reports that the Chinese steal information from visitors by jacking in to their Wi-Fi transmissions. Afterall, even in democracies there are constantly crooks trying to steal or otherwise mess with folks computers, so is it so strange that a dictatorship might have an organized program of computer crime, or, at least, might be in bed with organized crime, as the Russian government under Putin clearly is?

Also, let me point out something about posting that not everybody may be aware of. I'm not awake when these programs come out, but from reading other comments, there's some inconsistency about the way the comments are automatically posted. I've seen more than one comment that referred to the wrong number when replying to another post. It appears that when the post are running hot and heavy, sometimes, the number of the post you're responding to is later changed, probably because of heavy posting traffic. So, sometimes people think they're being criticized when the critic was replying to someone else post. That's what happened to #15-No1. Those people he's responding to were actually criticizing #16-Fade. It could be just sloppiness, but I've been seeing this some recently, some responses on a post one day were off by 2, so I think the posting order may end up changing when there's heavy traffic. It's probably better to refer to both the post number (for easy reference by others) and the poster's name (just in case the order is off).

I realize that, this relatively late in the day, the previous posters I referenced won't likely see this. Hopefully, it will be useful for some. Hopefully, I haven't wasted everyone's time. :)

I appreciate the opportunity to try this software and would only use the buy only applications such as this one.

What I have found with the free versions of too many password crack/reveler software and especially product key recovery utilities, is that they access the internet with your info and without your knowledge.

I don't use any freeware app's like those, and if you do - I strongly suggest you have port monitoring software running if that pc can connect to the net. Many paid for firewall programs don't monitor this activity or let you can scan your pc for internet enabled programs, nor be alerted when a program tries.

Thanks GAoTD team for another winner.

For those of you that are not going to use this set use a computer that is accessed by other yet you don't want them looking at some of your files. A decent way to hide files is to put them in a folder of a folder with an non oblivious name. Now anybody who actually explores your computer will be able to find the files with some effort but for those who don't, it will be rather hard for them.

I recommend anybody who makes password files or creates passwords for anything, write them down somewhere safe like a journal. I could see this as useful for someone who is in business in a public settings but not much for a home private user.

There is an inherent problem with all password crackers. For anyone who is actually putting it to legal good use (you forgot your password on a file) chances are, the reason you forgot it, is because it was complicated, or you set the password a long time ago and you don't *really* need the file contents but are just interested in seeing what's inside.

For anyone who is NOT using it in a legal, good manner... then they have access to your files anyway and a password isn't going to help much. I've been in the computer industry for over 20 years (over 10 years professionally) and the only password cracker i've ever used on someone elses computer was a windows login cracker.

I was the network admin for a large company and i was required to install some software on all of our users computers. (it had to be installed under their account, installing under the admin account wasn't what this program required) I requested everyone's passwords but not all of them gave them to me. So i was forced to run a crack tool on their accounts.

Passwords on individual files is rather a waste of time. Passwords are going out of style anyway. What we need is public/private keys to login to machines not passwords. Passwords are just asking for problems with today's powerful computers.

I don't know, that's just my opinion but i honestly believe that passwords are nearly useless in today's world. All they do is "keep honest people honest".

However, i really appreciate the work GAOTD does with all these programs. I've found several programs that i use (some many many times a day) and i applaud the developers who go against the grain and let this website publish their software for FREE! Anyone who comes on here posting negative comments is a moron. Everything on this site is free, you aren't required to download these programs. 99% of the time you know what the program is by the title alone, you don't even need to click on the download button if you aren't going to use the program. Much less waste your time posting a negative, rude comment on here.

Constructive criticism is different of course. Just like what i posted above.

This isn't for me, sounds interesting enough. I work with a ton of people that forget their passwords lol! Can anybody suggest some good, free flash animation software? I've been watching this site for some animation software for a while (I hope I didn't miss it!), but I haven't seen any.

#36, Belgian Dude, and #44, Bjed, provided some interesting alternatives (I haven't done a Google search for others). I looked at their descriptions.

Elcomsoft Advanced Archive Password Recovery is a serious product, with a serious price-tag (but a trial is available). It does take advantage of known algorithmic weaknesses, where possible. It supports most archive types, and AES decryption.

AstonSoft ZIP Password Finder (direct link) appears rather lame, but it's free.

acubix PicoZip Recovery Tool appears to be better than Zip Password Finder, and it's also free.

To the people making comments about how long it takes to crack passwords, you have no idea what technology is readily available. The average person thinks that the Sun would burn out before their PC could crack anything, which may be true. The misconception is that it takes the resources of a government to do significant cracking. One researcher was astonished at the ability of a lowly video-game console, the Sony PS3, to crack encryption. Its Cell chip completely stomps any PC (or a collection of PC's). High-end GPU's can be programmed, and I'm sure they would make a Cell chip look like an abacus. Then there are collections of computers, the structure and naming of which seems to change daily (parallel, cluster, distributed, grid, cloud, etc., computing). Any hacker worth beans could network a few gaming machines in his own home, using their GPU's, and crack most of the typical passwords people use, in a short period of time.

This is pointless. There are multiple free archive password recovery tools out there that do the same thing. What most people don't know is that a password protected archive inside of a password protected (and sometimes regular) archive is almost impossible to crack.
