    For this, we'll be using John the Ripper. It is a free, command line-based program that can be used to crack passwords. Unfortunately, while it is free, it can be tricky to install and use but I'll teach you how to

    So, 1st step, download the program if you're using Windows, download the community-enhanced version that was made for Windows (John the Ripper 1.8.0-jumbo-1 (Windows binaries, ZIP, 34 MB)

    2. Extract John the Ripper

    3. Install John the Ripper. John the Ripper can't be installed like normal programs, but you can install it by moving its folder to your desktop and then renaming the folder to "john"

    4. Copy your .zip into the John the Ripper "run" folder

    5. Open command prompt with admin rights (as administrator)

    6. Change the directory to John the Ripper's "run" folder, this can be done by typing:

    cd desktop/john/run

    7. Now type the following commands by the order they show up (every line break means that you have to press enter and where it says "name" change it to your .zip name (i.e. If your .zip is called abc change name.hash to abc.hash):

    1. zip2john.exe NAME.zip > NAME.hash
    2. NAME.hash
    3. john.exe --pot=NAME.pot --wordlist=john/run/password.lst NAME.hash

    8. After this, the password will start being determined. When it is, you'll see "Session Completed" appear at the bottom of the command prompt.

    9. After that just type:

    10. The password for your .zip file is right in front of you!
