The first "layer" of raring is not password protected, but the.rar file that gets extracted from the first archive is password protected. What I'm left with is a password protected.rar file and anger. My question to everyone here is: What is the best way to crack a password protected.rar file? I have seen some crappy shareware brute force type programs, but I was thinking something more like RainbowCrack. Is there a way to extract the password hash value from the.rar archive and use RainbowCrack to crack it?
