  • CrowbarDMG

    crowbarDMG is a dictionary attack tool for DMG and Spareimage files for Macs. It does require 10.5 Leopard. It really wasn’t worth the trouble to redo things to work on Tiger. It is completely free, so enjoy. Be sure to read the included PDF readme file. I address an issue if you use strings to pull out a dictionary from a disc image. Some control characters need to be scrubbed else it will crash crowbarDMG. Give it a shot if you need to recover a password for a dmg or filevault file.
