We will now crack a ZIP files password and recover it's contents:
- Open a terminal window in Kali by clicking the icon.
- Enter the following commands to create an encrypted ZIP file:
cd mkdir 6.10 cd 6.10touch one two three zip -e numbers.zip one two three
- When asked for a password, let's use a simple one such as password.
- We will use our rockyou.txt dictionary file from the past recipes along with fcrackzip:
fcrackzip -u -D -p '/usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt' numbers.zip
