Hello,

Unfortunately i have lost my password, but i have hope to find it by bruteforcing the file ! :oops:
It is only 9 charachters long, and no symbols. Only alpha-numerical (and only ascii space)

Someone have an easy solution to bruteforce it ? (tool or script w/e)

Thanks all

I have found and slightly edited a python script which do the job : https://pastebin.com/1kW1TidM

Just put yourself in a folder where there are :

1. your encrypted .aes file
2. the aescrypt console executable that you can fetch here https://www.aescrypt.com/download/

Inside the python script, don't forget to modify the name of your file, by default it is "filename.aes".

NB : Don't forget to modify the alphabet if you know approximatively which letters/symbols there are in your key

I have C code that will do it, but works only in Linux. It's very fast. Requirement is to have all the passwords you want to try in a file. It will then read the file and attempt each one by short-circuiting the process substantially. It doesn't require AES Crypt to be installed, as everything is in the source to do what it needs.

I don't like advertising such a tool, because I don't want people to get the impression that one can easily break the security. But, it is a good reminder that strong passwords are important.

Do you use Linux?
