It is not bad form at all. We make remarks, positive or negative, just as the site requests for them to evaluate future apps.

I'm not sure if I'm going to need this program any time soon, but I wanted to see what it was all about. It's very interesting and well thought out. Plus, I wanted to see how easy or hard it was to download these wonderful free gifts of yours from your GOTD site. The downloading and installation was a breeze. I love to try out different software programs, and when I come to your website, I feel like I'm a kid in a candy store gobbling up all my favorite candy. Thanks so much for this wonderful experience!

Good if you like it, bad if you don't.

I use 40+ chracter passwords, such as ^& *GhGn U__ $3SC,>>)9({]=_09 )¬8bNyyyG etc etc etc, so to decrypt just that would take hundreds of years.

I agree with someone that wrote about people creating passwords for thei files don't want them opened for that reason.

These apps are useless unless you are cracking someones files, which is a crime.

If you are too dumb to remember a basic password for your rar/zip ace files, then, create a personal vault put in the vault a .txt file with the passwords to your files.

You can use microsofts vault, like their hotmail accounts you can only use numbers/letters/characters and maximum of 14, so it should not be too hard to create a simple password to open the vault to get more complicated passwords for protecting your other files.

The only problem I see with this program is that it does not support AES encrypted archives.

What good is a dictionary for secure passwords, as the should be, there is NO dictionary listing something like 3l3v810n (elevation)? NADA

Sorry, I like mosts apps here but this is useless

This is odd. It installs and runs great on my desktop, but it crashes on start on the virtual machine I have on my laptop. I'll check it further, but I think it is a bug.

Well im testing a mixed lowercase and numerical password that is 8 characters and so far its taken 6 hours so i could prolly stop it and say the password is pretty good. I do have to say that to GOTD because i needed something like this for a passworded file i actually forgot the password to.

I think that #34, #30 and #27 have nailed the best use for this program. Whenever you create a zip other supported files and put a password to protect its contents, run this baby on it and see what it does. It is not state of the art, but good password making policy is not something that has become mainstream yet. I don't think I'll be using KRyLack's PR to find passwords as much as to making sure the ones I make are somewhat safe!

Thank you GOTD!

Yes, complicated passwords will make brute force attacks useless, but the majority of people use weak passwords (1-8 alpha numeric characters)

#12

Dictionary based attacks are most certainly not useless. Your dictionary, on the other hand, is probably useless. When you have a good dictionary, say 100MB+ worth of words, you will have a very nice success rate when looking at a large population of passwords.

everyone else talking about how "slow" this program is: Newer RAR files take an incredible amount of time compared to zip files. It doesn't matter what software you're using unless a specific product managed to crack or find an exploit in the algorithm used.

Seeing how most of the other commercial password cracking solutions are 20$+ and only target a single archive type, this is quite nice.

#11 - Kate,

Why isn't it a great program? What was your experience? Comments with details on what it did or didn't do and exactly WHY you do or don't like the product are very helpful to the rest of us. We need the feedback and I think that is really the purpose of the forums (not complaining, bashing, religion, or 'I'm first!". But that's only my opinion and I'm so sure there will be people who will jump on this).

Thanks for any new feedback you decide to share.

Right on the money! I agree 100% with you, #31, and #32 (sorry if I neglect to mention any others who are appreciative). Be thankful for all the hard work and generosity of GOTD. They certainly don't HAVE to do this. Thanks for all the free stuff, GOTD!

#34

My first thought was the same as #9, specifically:
"what if its someone elses private zip that wasnt supposed to be opened"

True it may have some very limited use for forgotten passwords but there's far too much potential for abuse with any password cracking program. Frankly surprised to see such a program offered here.

But this is a good reminder for all to follow NTH's advice in comment #27, which bears repeating. Always use long complicated passwords with mixed case, alpha-numeric, and add a few special characters where ever they are accepted. (Not accepted in everything that's password protected.) Far too many people use shockingly simple passwords for ease of remembering, but what they are forgetting is that the purpose of passwords is to protect whatever requires them.

Thanks a million for free software. It appears that we have the usual gripers who would complain that their lottery winnings were not deposited to their bank account; and, if it had been deposited, they would complain why they did not receive a check. Keep up the good works.

Something I just had to say! You guys do an awsome job of providing these freebies. I have been checking in most everyday this year and there seems to be something for everyone. I just do not understand all the "grousing"! This service if FREE, the products are FREE, freeware library is a FREE service. I for one am greatful that someone is willing to do all that hard work for me. So Thank you, Thank you, Thank you and please "keep 'em commin!"

#27: ya, you right.
This program may good at cracking simple passwords ( such as number psw, all same case psw.. etc ) of course it must be short. The program may become "throw away" with long and complex psw ( strong psw with special character, number, lower&upper case mixed ) So don't rely on it so much. :| Anyway, thnx to GOTD team and KRyLack

Programs like these are useless if you use long, complicated passwords. With the types of passwords I use for rar files it would take this program a few hundred years to crack it.

Perhaps for new files it's working good, but with old encrypted files I get no results. So in a scale from 0-10 I give the program 3 points.

I have created simple text file and compressed it using RAR 3.0 with the password "hello". I used Dictionary recovery type. Password decoding speed was about 11 passwords/sec (CPU: P-IV 3GHz). I think it will take several hours of find the right password.

Anyway, this program can be useful for forgotten passwords restoring if user remembers at least a part of password phrase. I think RAR's authors did their best to make RAR password cracking hard.
