I don't have much experience in encryption yet, but I was taught a little about Rijdael being that you need IV and Key or it basically impossible to get the information contained in a file.

For an example being

X = Y

or

5X+2= Y ~ (5X + 2 - 2) / 5 = (0-2)/5

If you have an equation of X being 0, but try to find the Y then you would get...
-0.4 for Y. Get it?

I don't know why Encryption Law was in effect in America since data can be transformed into anything... can be pictures, save files, musics, bookmarks, database, or whatever.

That all I know basically.

Yes, WinRAR uses 128 AES, which is considered impossible to crack. I've seen references to a paper claiming to have found weaknesses in the way WinRAR implements AES, but probably not bad enough to make it crackable.

OTOH, the average user has crap passwords, so a dictionary attack is always worth trying.
