Excel Password is an advanced and highly optimized password recovery tool for MS Excel spreadsheets in 95-2016 formats (new .xlsx, .xlsb, .xlsm and old .xls, .xlt). Excel Password works with MS Excel files in new XML or Binary (BIFF12) file formats (.xlsx, .xlsb, ...) as well as old BIFF formats (.xls, .xlt, ...). Range Protection, Write Protection, Sheets or Workbook passwords are recovered or removed instantly.
Several attacks can be configured and queued including advanced MIXED attacks (combinations of independent dictionary, brute-force or fixed parts with modifications) for precise search range setup and fastest recovery. Preset or custom char replacement options (e.g. A,a with @ or E,e with 3). Typing errors generation. Advanced keyboard layouts-aware recovery technique (on the fly conversion from one keyboard layout to another). About a dozen of examples of search settings is available to start with. Highly optimized code (SSE2, AVX, AVX2) and GPU (AMD, NVIDIA) utilization guarantees fastest recovery speed. Latest Intel HD Graphics integrated GPUs can be used for password recovery acceleration as well. Audio, script or web address based post-search notification. "Save passwords to a file" option (saves all password candidates) to verify search settings or to generate a new wordlist. Excel 97-2003 recovery speed is millions passwords per second. And, for example, Excel 2007 password recovery speed with Intel Core i3 4130 at 3.40GHz + integrated Intel HD 4400 GPU + AMD Radeon R9 280X = 2 100 + 820 + 49 800 = ~52 500 pass/s.
