  • Dictionary Attack :

    Now that’s not the dictionary attack I’m talking about!

    The way how dictionary attack works is by checking readable words against the password. It is therefore faster due to lack of need for checking every possible letter combinations. Most of the softwares that support dictionary attack will come preinstalled with a default dictionary file. However, most of these softwares also support custom dictionary files through which you can manually add dictionary files. Free download a massive dictionary file with over 1,493,677,782 words for your password cracking software.

  • Brute Force Attack : brute force attack for zip file password recovery This is the most popular attack for password retrieval. Rather than a predefined list of words, this method checks every possible letter combinations for unlocking your file. Therefore it takes a huge amount of time to crack a medium length password if you have absolute zero knowledge about the password. Brute force attacks are usually done with powerful softwares such as Passware kit which supports multiple computers for distributed password recovery attack.
