We have a password recovery application design in Visual C++ (Visual Studio, v8).
This tool attempts to recovery passwords from Word and Excel documents using bruteforce and dictionary methods. It also instantly retrieves Access passwords. Everything is finished, and the application works well.
However a rival product, Advanced Office Password Recovery claims to retrieve passwords "guaranteed, regardless of the password length and complexity. This is being done by trying all possible encryption keys (instead of brute-force and dictionary attacks) and takes only about two weeks on single Pentium III/1000 PC (or just four-five days or faster dual-CPU systems)".
Can you do this? Can you implement this form of password recovery... using encryption keys? If so... please, place your bid. You will need to merge it into our current program... which has a solid design and is very easy to "plug into" (wizard-format, so very straight forward).
It needs to be GUARANTEED recovery, implemented for Word and Excel. ONLY bid if you're sure you can handle this.
