I want retrieve documents from a password protected rar file? I know brute force and dictionary method. Is there any other method to get data?
The current version of RAR uses 128bit AES, which is very secure. A brute force attack will be useless; and while there are some known attacks on AES, none of them are of any practical use. The specific implementation of AES they use is well respected.
- Guessing the password
- Dictionary attack
- Social engineering the password
- Rubber Hose cryptography
