Can anyone come up with a program that can crack a password protected winrar archive? Is it even possible?
That URL says that the only ways to get the password from a zip or rar file is to use the dictionary method or brute force method. My true challenge is if it's possible get the password for a zip file that has this password:


No matter which method you use, it would take like 10,000,000 years. Is there possibly a way to get a password that long?

If you know the exact contents of one of the files in the zip, you can use that to get the password.
