Post: RE: How to tell if ZIP is compressed or not?

Thanks! So 0 for uncompressed or 8 for compressed. That's useful to know. No, there was no "type" info here. Just the info on the line I posted earlier. I can see now why you're telling me to update...

Post: How to tell if ZIP is compressed or not?

Hi, I used zip2john yesterday to get the hash for a ZIP file. It turned out to be a PKZIP format file. As far as I can tell, Hashcat currently supports this format, yes? I am uncertain because I ca...

I am finally cracking it. It converted "hello.hash" from CRLF to LF, and UTF-16 LE to UTF-8. Now it's accepted by Hashcat 6.2.5 and I will tell you in about 25 minutes if it worked or not. I'm brute f...

Unless I am mistaken, the Restore option (--restore) can only be used independently and by doing so it implicitly calls upon the optimized kernel option (-O) to be used if it was used previously, befo...

So you have an Excel 2007 file that's password protected and you don't know the password? What is the source of this hex encoded password? What encoding was used when it came into existence? It's unl...

Hey I just found something called "hashcat.restore" file. I haven't used it or tried it myself, but this could be what you're looking for. Check the documentation. https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php...

If you want to save cracked passwords to a dedicated output file – in addition to the potfile – you can use the "-o" option. Note that it's a lower case O. Code: -- -o ..\recovered-passwords.txt -...

I have not swapped CUDA 11 for CUDA 8 yet, but I did use Hashcat 3.0 on the GTX 560 Ti for a MD5 job and it was consistently giving me 900 to 930 MH/s and without errors or warnings. Whereas running H...
