Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr> added the comment:

As I already explained:
* why it doesn't detect that the password is bad is because the ZIP format is not well-designed enough
* you can catch the zlib error which indicates that decryption returned junk

resolution:  -> invalid
status: open -> closed
