Attempt to recover forgotten passwords to your ZIP archives by trying out attacks like Brute-force, Dictionary, Mask, as well as Smart
Since most services require a password, and it’s recommended to use a different one for each account, there are high chances you forget those seldom used. This can also be the case with files, but there are ways to bypass such inconveniences. A suitable example in this regard is iSunshare ZIP Password Genius, which is dedicated to ZIP archives.
Once installed, you can go ahead and run it to see what it’s all about. The interface makes sure you have little to no trouble getting the hang of things, with an intuitive operation toolbar, multiple tabs for password lookup configuration, as well as a log window to display events in real-time.
There are generally multiple methods through which a password can be recovered, and this application lets you use one of four. You pick the one of interest from a drop-down menu, with options for Brute-force, Mask, Dictionary, as well as Smart attack. Each has its own advantages and sets of configurations.
For instance, using a dictionary attack can prove quite efficient if you know all passwords you generally use and have them saved in a TXT file. The program comes with a custom dictionary file, but the less items inside it, the faster the operation reaches a successful end, given the appropriate key is found in the dictionary file.
On the bright side of things, the other attack modes can be tweaked as well in an attempt to narrow down results. The range tab lets you choose the character sets to include in the search operation, while length lets you specify possible minimum and maximum values for the password length. When found, a password can be sent to clipboard at the press of a button.
Taking everything into account, iSunshare ZIP Password Genius might be just what you’re looking for in case you desperately need a particular set of files locked inside a ZIP archive. Multiple attack types are at your disposal, which can retrieve the password in the nick of time with the right configurations.
