RAR password recovery/decryption service

Overview of RAR password protection: RAR/WinRAR archiver version 2.x used its proprietary, but rather strong encryption algorithm. At least no RAR 2.0 attacks were known except brute force for password recovery.

Starting from version 3.0, RAR has been using a strong AES algorithm, which also doesn't allow any attacks more effective than the brute force. Besides, the encryption is implemented so that brute force rate on modern computer is very low, only several tens of passwords per second. This carries inference that RAR 3.x password encryption is the strongest between popular encryption systems in the context of brute force rate.

Password recovery tools
File extensions: rar
RAR crypto algorithms: proprietary (up to 2.0), AES (3.0+)
RAR encryption weakness: human factor
Possible attacks against RAR: brute-force, dictionary
Attacks complexity: 2128

How can I recover RAR password? Is not possible to decrypt protected RAR archive instantly - you can only test passwords one by one. Moreover, because of RAR protection has the slowest brute-force rate, is quite not possible to recover passwords longer than 6-7 characters. So, please choose the crackers that offer a lot of password attacks and allow to use additional information about the password.
