Q 01: What benefits do ZIP files offer?

Q 02: Why are GPUs so good at cracking passwords?

A: A GPU has hundreds of cores that can be used to compute mathematical functions in parallel. A CPU usually has 4-8 cores. Although a CPU core is much faster than a GPU core, password hashing is one of the functions that can be done in parallel very easily. This is what gives GPUs a massive edge in cracking passwords.

Q 04: What is Brute-Force attack?

A: To decrypt an encrypted file, the attackers can begin to try every single possible password and see if that results in a decrypted file. They do this automatically with a computer, so the speed at which someone can brute-force encryption increases as available computer hardware becomes faster and faster, capable of doing more calculations per second. The brute-force attack would likely start at one-digit passwords before moving to two-digit passwords and so on, trying all possible combinations until one works.

Q 05: What is dictionary attack?

A: The way a dictionary attack works within a tool that the word from the dictionary is hashed, just like it would be by the operating system. Then this hashed password is compared to the password hash that has been obtained from the computer. If the two hashes match, then the word from the dictionary is the password used by the user on the computer.

Q 06: What if I am not patient enough to wait for the cracked password?

A: Don't worry. If you need to do something else, you can check the auto shutdown box and your PC will shut itself down when the cracking is finished.

Q 10: What are RAR files used for?

A: RAR files are archives containing other files in compressed state. Main purpose is storing large amounts of data in a single, smaller file. A RAR file can be split into parts and used to transport large files on small mediums. A RAR file can additionally be encrypted and protected by a password. This way, a RAR file can be used as a safe for confidential files.

Q 11: I have forgotten/do not know the password for a RAR file, how can I recover it?

A: RAR encryption does not contain backdoors and we have no way to recover the contents of your file for you. The only possible way to find a password is to test all possible character combinations. You may find tools on the internet that can try to guess passwords to your files with brute force, but these tools are used at your own risk and are not supported by the RAR team.

Q 12: What is the maximum number of files that can be added to an archive?

A: The number of files, which can be added to an archive, depends upon the amount of available memory and the length of the file names. Roughly 128 bytes of memory are required per archived file for a RAR archive. For example, it is recommended to have 128 MB if you are going to archive millions of files..
