Frankly, the zip cracker is of limited use when it can only crack the easiest passwords reliably. As currently implemented, if it has to run for more than a few minutes, then chances are that it'd produce a wrong password and terminate - right? Is this something you intend to fix? Maybe after GSoC, because fixing this is probably a lot of work, and for GSoC it could be better for you to focus on adding more non-hashes first (as planned). Makes sense? Also, what about supporting older zip formats, where it would probably be easier for you to avoid false positives? Thanks, Alexander
