I'm just curious to know whether or not an encrypted file is really save in terms of decrypting if I compress (or just save) a file into a
.7z archive with a password.
If I use a strong and unpredictable password, is the only way to decrypt it a brute force attack?
7-Zip seems to use AES-256, which, according to Wikipedia, is also used in other applications and I therefore guess it is not easily decryptable. However, I'm not much into cryptography at all.
.7z archive undecryptable (except through brute force) without the password?
