So, whats your experience with encrypted ISO's?

Postby Storm_Sullivan » Wed Oct 01, 2014 3:43 am

I downloaded some software in ISO format, but it was encrypted and the poster seems to have forgotten to put up a password. Is there any way to bypass the password of an ISO?

Hmm, I have dealt with ISO files, but never came across a password protected one before. So, the actual iso has a password or like a compressed version of it?

As far as I know, the .iso disc image files can't have the password protection feature, it's something weird, too. Probably what you've downloaded is a protected archive with the .iso file inside. You could try a password brute-force scan with a passwords recovery program like this, it's only needed lot of time.
Sounds like you've downloaded one of those pirated programs where the "password" is put in a text file, but in it there's the link to a survey website which asks for cell phone numbers, and if you're afraid to complete it, then maybe you'll download another text file with the password written...
