I'm sure it's somewhere in the forums, but i'm on dialup right now and didn't want to trawl through them.
I've downloaded a big rar archive and it's passworded. any ideas on where to get the password/bypass it?
i'm trawling through the binary now on the offchance it (or it's hash is in there ((not likely)) ).... any other ideas?
Its usually the name/address of the site that released it (which would take too long to brute force).
I would suggest trying to find out who put it up there and guessing at the password, or if registration is free, just join and search for it.

I wouldn't bother trying to brute it... its not like a .zip where you can fire one/two million attempts per second... you'll get a max of 20 attempts per second which is too slow.
Your best bet is to find the pass from where ever it was downloaded.
i got it guys. like an idiot.... the pass was in the filename. bugger knows why on earth you'd bother passwording a file and putting it in the filename. i dunno. seemed like a good idea at the time would be my guess. i may try those apps out anyway just for shits and giggles. cheers
