Our Case Study About Unlocking Password Protected RAR Files:
Unlocking RAR files might have many ways and methods but let’s talk about how RAR files are encrypted and what you can’t do to unlock this kind of files.
We create two RAR files. They are just text documents with “hello” written in them and one of them is password protected RAR archive and other was not password protected.
We drag and drop those files inside the text document to check whether there’s something useful we’ll find in them.
Most of the blogs claim that there are few codes or something you’ll find inside the RAR file and if you open the RAR files with text document and then change some values it will unlock RAR archive.
But wait! Look the image given below:
As we mentioned above inside both text documents we have written “hello” inside them and then compress them to RAR archive. One is protected and other is not protected with the password.
Image above clearly shows that 2nd doc.txt has “hello” written but 1st doc.txt shows some values. Means those values are encrypted.
It broke the claim that most of the blogs do that editing RAR archive through notepad will unlock it. So opening RAR files without password isn’t possible by notepad clearly.
Also, changing the format from .rar to .zip or using any tool will not work. Extractor tool will still require the password.
Whole the data inside the RAR is encrypted. Not only it frames the file with password level but encrypts the whole data. There are a lot of things that needed to concern with RAR file encryption which is not related to your problem.
You’re here to unlock the RAR archive without knowing the password.
