ZIP Password Unlocker 3.0 is to recover forgotten or lost passwords for WinZIP/ZIP archives to to open and extract the files and folders from the archive. All WinZIP/ZIP versions are supported, including the newest version 12.1!
Enhanced by three attack modes, this password recovery tool is dynamic in functions and quick in speed! Among the brute-force attack, brute-force with mask attack and dictionary attack, dictionary attack is just amazing! The program is going to base on the dictionary you created to attack the password! The program attacks the password just via mutating these characters and character sets to try to match the guesses with the password, either randomly or reasonably. If and only if matched, the password is cracked successfully! The dictionary is fully customizable, enabling you to list all your frequently used passwords or password elements in the text file. For example, you can list your birthday place, birthday date, your phone number, your primary school and the like or the elements like digit combinations 12, 99, letter combinations, ab, lee and the like that may come into your password. Thus the Unlocker will just seek the password in a scale you set instead of in the sea of characters and character sets that may be far from your password, saving incredible amount of time.
The brute-force with mask attack is terrific as well. You define a mask with the password attributes that you still remember, like the password length, the initial/last character of the password, etc. The program will just crack the password according to these important information, dramatically speeding up the processing. For example, you know your password is 8-character long with the initial character is A and the last is the digit 0, then your password is going to be "A******0". Then, it will just try to recover the six characters in the middle instead of trying random guesses, even not knowing how many characters in the password!
