[SOLVED] Loop Zip-File Entries - What if the zip file has a password?

Hi All,

I get zip-files sent to me with a password (not sure why they insist on using a password) and it's the same password all the time. Would it be possible to loop zip files with known passwords?

Thanks,

    Hi,

    so you want to use RapidMiner to brute-force Zip passwords? ;D
    This is currently not possible (and you can't even hack your way to it via the 'Execute script' operator because the Java library does not support zip files with a password as far as I know..)

    Regards,
    Marco

    Hi Marco,

    Thanks for that.
    At this point we're not looking to brute-force passwords.....I actually know what the password is - it never changes. One of my suppliers is just a bit paranoid.
    It would be cool if you could brute-force though...

    Is there any way to input a known password?

    Cheers,
    Rowan

    Hi,

    as pointed out above: No. And there won't be for the forseeable future.

    Regards,

    Maybe not the most elegant solution, but most certainly there is a command line tool that can deal with password protected zip files. You could run that program with the Execute Program operator and then use Loop Files on the extracted data instead of Loop Zip File.

    Best regards,

    another more centralized controlled pos, would be to use the zipfile lib with the python operator
