WeakRSA and FindTheEasyPass

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has tried this lately. I know the flags do to being an old task, but it seems maybe HTB has changed these up a little. They zips are protected with pass. I have done zip2john and used rockyou.txt and many others from SecLists as wordlist to try and crack #>john --wordlist=/usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt hashes. I have also did bruteforce for about 24hrs just using #>john hashes to no avail. I am a noob, but seems should be easier to crack for beginner.


the password for all the zip files is “hackthebox”, it should say that where you downloaded it. They do this because otherwise the file can get flagged by virus scanners.

Geesh, your right, I overlooked it. Thank you!

I do see now where it says the password and the checksum.

Well, I know what password to use on my financial institutions. ha jk. added to the rockyou.txt and it found it in a 10th of a second.
