Aside from the fact that Jim pointed out that we dont even need to get
the original password, please do not have so much faith in encyption -
it is only as good as the key.

An estimate I read recently said that a Zip file encrypted with a 7
character password using only lowercase alphabetic characters
('a'..'z') could be cracked in 1.1 hours using a simple brute force
algorithm! Wordlists and other advancements can break weak keys even
