If you’ve ever tried to Google for a legit brute force password recovery tool, you’ll no doubt run into the same crappy seo’d to the max aggregate sites I did, before eventually finding the right tool.
I’m going to share the programs that have worked for me, so I’ll be updating this list (ok so it’s not yet a list) as and when.
First one up is rarcrack on Linux. I used it for a 7z file.
How-to is here and download is here.
