winzip strong (AES) encryption for linux


is there any software out there (for linux of course) which can decrypt and unzip files which have been compressed and encrypted with winzip 10 useing the strongest (of the three) encryption settings? I believe the setting uses AES-256 or something like that.

thanks

Do you have the password, or are you looking for an encryption buster? If the later, hope you have a lot of time and money on your hands.

Otherwise, gzip supports AES-256 encryption.

gzip might support AES256 but the problem is that i have files which have already encrypted with winzip (new-ish version) and want to extract them. but gzip doesnt seem to be compatible. nor is unzip. Here is the output:
optix@eve ~/Desktop $ mv sunday.zip sunday.gz
optix@eve ~/Desktop $ gunzip sunday.gz
gunzip: sunday.gz: first entry not deflated or stored -- use unzip
optix@eve ~/Desktop $ unzip sunday.gz
Archive: sunday.gz
skipping: sunday.txt unsupported compression method 99
optix@eve ~/Desktop $ file sunday.gz
sunday.gz: Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract
optix@eve ~/Desktop $ unzip --version
caution: both -n and -o specified; ignoring -o

Any other sugestions?
