BruteZIP

A basic script that unzips password protected .zips by performing a brute-force attack using either a word list, password list or a dictionary.

Based on Violent Python - A Cookbook for Hackers, Forensic Analysts, Penetration Testers and Security Engineers by TJ O'Connor.

Requirements

  • Python 3+

Information

To run the script just launch the .py using python3 BruteZIP.py -p poolsize -z zip.zip -f file.txt where:

  • -p poolsize is optional and specifies the poolsize (How many instances of Python to create to brute-force the .zip [More is better but requires more resources]). If you want to use the default amount of processes (8), don't input -p while launching the program.
  • -z zip.zip is the location and name of the target .zip.
  • -f file.txt is the location and the name of the word list/password list/dictionary.

Due to the difference in compression methods in 7zip and WinRAR, zipfile often has troubles unzipping/cracking WinRAR generated .zips. For best results, use this on .zips generated using "deflate" compression method (Preferably generated with 7zip).
