So I just downloaded a game for my Xbox 360, but the stupid file has a password on it.

To get the password I have to do a survey which involves giving out my phone number and all that stuff, which I don't want too.

So I was wondering if there were any way to crack the file's password?

You could try getting the file´s URL, ex: rapidshare.com/1234567/rarfile.rar.html

You copy "rapidshare.com/1234567/rarfile.rar.html" then paste it on google.

You´ll find where do that link comes from quite fast, incluiding pass.

Rainbow tables always seemed like the best way to crack things to me...although actually doing the survey would be the wisest plan as there's no guarantee you'd get the pass for 400 years...

should have check comments first

brute force will take forever as they make the password very long and complex (numbers and characters)
just delete it and get it from a reliable source this time

and as yusuo said, stuff like this is usually fake

I regularly do some of these tips you guys mentioned, but I was just to hyped up for this game.

You don't have to give out real number. I ran into that situation once and I give out a randomly generated number.

Cracking a RAR password is no easy task. Since you rely on brute force cracking it'll be time consuming.

I tried that first, but then it asked for a PIN number it sent to that phone.

if you cna't find comments on a file just download the last rar file and open it in a text editor, at the end of the file you'll the url for the survey, that's how you know it's a passworded file without downloading the whole thing.

if you google the link to the 'survey' page theres a website that gives out passwords to most of those types of releases. ive never completed a survey the couple of times that happened
