Advanced Archive Password Recovery Review (zip cracker)

Sunday, November 13, 2005

First off, the name of this product continues to slay me. L0phtcrack (seemingly gone now) is somewhat memorable. Cain and Abel is a good name for an application. Advanced Archive Password Recovery is a tongue twister that is forgotten almost as soon as it is said. And to be truthful, not all that spectacular. However, it will get the work done.
So what the hell does it do anyway? When you compress files into .zip, .rar, .arj you have the option to password protect that file so when uncompressing, you are prompted with a password. If you have forgotten the password, then this application will attempt to audit the file until the correct password is found. So let's get into the screenshots first and then I will list some pros and cons. The screenshot above is the launch screen in which we have a bunch of different options on how to crack the password. Because I have a number of different wordlists and didn't want to use the default list that comes with the app, I loaded my own wordlist in which is just a long .txt file with names.

Pretty self explanatory here but when all the correct options are set, hit the 'start' button and let it start cracking. On average, the password attemtps made were about 10 passwords per second which is not bad. Here is the screen displaying the cracked password.


My views on Advanced Archive Password Recovery.
Pros: *Cracking options are not limited only to dictionary attacks and brute-force but also use mask, plain text, password from keys and guaranteed win-zip recovery.
*Easy navigation and little to no tutorials needed for the average user.

Cons: *The fucking name! I have to keep looking up to my other tab to figure out the damn name of this application.
*NOT FREE. For something that is pretty simple, you can use it free for 30 days but after that, the folks at Elcomsoft ask that for personal use you should fork over $60 and for business use, $120.
*Only 1 wordlist is included.


If you are in need of a zip/rar cracker, this one will do, but prepare to hand over some cash if you want to use this application on a regular basis. Sorry, if I am going to pay $60, I want more features, more wordlists and something other free crackers do not offer.
