I saw a pdf cracker, Which removes the password ( 256 bit encrypted) within seconds. When a pdf cracker cracks the password in seconds, why don't a RAR password cracker takes hours to crack a file. If we found out where a RAR file stores the password exactly we can easily break that too?? Any ideas?
RAR password cracking
I think it's got something to do with the compression algorithm that makes it takes longer.
Is there any way to hex edit a RAR file and remove the password
If i hex edit a RAR file, when i try to open it again. it says "HEADER CORRUPT or MISSING".
