Subject: Cracking Word files?

I've recently heared about john the ripper. Actually I think it is fun
and I wanted to test it. Therefore I downloaded it and compiled it.
Everything worked fine. After that I created a sample Word file and
protected it with a simple password. I downloaded a password list from
the openwall page. Now I wanted to test john on the Word document. But
I cannot find out how. I read the EXAMPLES text file and also had a
look at a wiki article ( but
the articles provided there are not very helpful. Therefore my
question: How do I crack a simple Word file whose password is included
in the download password .lst file?

Thanks, Paul
