Subject: Cracking symmetrically encrypted PGP files with PGPCrack-NG


I have hacked GnuPG into PGPCrack-NG, a program for cracking
symmetrically encrypted PGP files.


1. Get it from

2. Compile using "make"

3.  Run "cat ~/magnum-jumbo/run/password.lst | ./PGPCrack-NG <PGP file>"

4.  john -i -stdout | ./PGPCrack-NG <PGP file>

Speed: > 1330 passwords / second on AMD X3 720 CPU @ 2.8GHz (using single core).

It cracks all .pgp files from CMIYC 2012 successfully. Currently the
code is noisy and is alpha-quality (it was done in one rainy

Feedback is welcome!
