We received this zip file, but is asking for a password. All we know is that the password exists of 5 numbers, can you crack this password to get the hidden information? - 8caeb32d9716898f9af223f9762c8b27

You are provided with a standard, password-protected zip file. We are given enough information about the file that brute-forcing it will be rather quick. I decided to use fcrackzip.

$ fcrackzip -c 1 -b -l 5-5 -u

PASSWORD FOUND!!!!: pw == 42831

Then simply unzip the file with the password 42831 to reveal a text file containing the flag.
