Password Attacks | protected Archives zip2john

Hey y’all,

I really need some help on Password Attacks | protected Archives.

I am unable to crack the file that I get from the zip2john file.
The process is very straight forward

  1. zip2john > zipnotes.hash
  2. john --wordlist=/usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt zipnotes.hash

John does not crack this file, and what happens is that it goes through the whole worklist (rockyou) in 5 seconds. However, when i do not use the wordlist if works but does not crack the file.
I am also using hashcat with similar results. I am using mode 17210, 17220 and nothing. With no wordlist, similar to john, it goes through the cracking process but does not find anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

Why do you want to crack the file with rockyou.txt?
You got a list in the module.

Hey, thanks for replying.
So the wordlist from the module does not work for me. Unless you are giving a hint :wink:

I have sent you a DM


The wordlist from the module is the one you need to use, but first, you have to do something to it.

I have a question. Where from should we get the cracked password of the user Kira?
