Title: [C++] Cracker-ng
Post by: Tiger-222 on June 22, 2011, 01:25:41 PM
Hi all,

I created a new tool:

-- What ----------------------------------------------------------------

Cracker-ng, a multiple file cracker.

What this tool does _not_:
1. call a tierce tool like unrar or unzip to check the password
2. compute permutations or create wordlists

What this tool does:
1. understand the data format (see modules/*)
2. check the password using the way official tool does
3. eventually use optimized routines
4. read passwords from STDIN:
1. john, crunch or whatever you want for bruteforce attacks
2. cat (or whatever you want) for wordlist attack

-- Man -----------------------------------------------------------------

Usage: <module>cracker-ng <file>

Examples with ZIP module:
* wordlist attack:
cat wordlist.lst | zipcracker-ng file[.zip]

* bruteforce attack:
john --incremental --stdout | zipcracker-ng file[.zip]
crunch 1 8 -f charset.lst lalpha | zipcracker-ng file[.zip]

-- Why -----------------------------------------------------------------

I wrote this tool when I saw poor resources we have on *unix for ZIP and
RAR files password cracking. Hope it will be helpful.


Do not hesitate to contact me at <> for critics,
suggestions, contributions (or whatever you want!).

I am waiting for beta testers, let me know if you have success or fails with one file (for now ony zip format is known).
If you find some bad issue, tell me and send me the file within the email.

I am curious to know if it compiles on MS Windows, Mac, BSD or Linux* like.

Thanks in advance and good tests!

PS: I am working on the RAR module, and will work on the PDF one and then excel. If you have idea do not hesitate ;)

Hi Tiger-222,

Your tool is fantastic. I just register to make a suggestion:
Is relative easy to add multi-core support ?

Because I have a zip (cant remember which password used 6 years ago) to decrypt and with the current market lowclock-multicore SOC is terrible slow in one core. So I run 4 or more instances with similar configuration to use many cores as possible.

Thanks in advance Tiger-222 !
